Partitioning manufacturer fermacell has launched an impact warranty for its gypsum fibreboard panels.
The warranty is evidence of the company’s faith in its boards, it says, “even in particularly onerous education environments” where they outperform even the severe-duty rating of BS 5234 Part 2 as mandated in the Department of Education’s SSLD (Standard Specifications, Layouts and Dimensions) document.
Fermacell says that the boards are denser than plasterboard, giving the fibreboard – which is already fire and water resistant and acoustically efficient – its load-bearing strength and impact resistance. “Even when it is damaged, it is easily repaired,” fermacell explains.
The warranty extends to all partitions and linings specified in the fermacell brochure, Dry-lining solutions for education, and is valid for any type of building anywhere in the UK or Ireland subject to “just a few conditions,” fermacell says.
Conditions include the exclusive use of genuine fermacell boards, fermacell steel profiles and fermacell accessories.www.fermacell.co.uk
