Frameless cladding system offering up to two hours fire protection for structural steel.
A structural steel, frameless cladding system that offers up to 2 hours fire protection to universal column and beam sections and many joist sections, portal frames and castellated beam sections. It can be used in any type of building where an encasement is required to structural steelwork.
The Glasroc FireCase s lining provides a smooth, robust surface, and can be left unfinished if required. The boards, however, can be plastered or painted and the surface can be tiled using conventional tile adhesive without pre-treatment.
Partitions and wall linings can be fixed directly to the Glasroc FireCase s cladding as long as:
Where these criteria are not met, the partition framing must be suitably fixed to the structural steel section through the Glasroc FireCase s cladding. Where the partition abuts the web of the structural steel, a suitable steel nogging must be provided.
Where steel section web dimensions exceed 600 mm, additional support may be required for the cladding – contact the British Gypsum Drywall Academy Advice Centre for guidance.
Not suitable for use in areas subjected to continuous damp or humid conditions.
