Fire resistant SANS 10177 part 2 – 2005
A wall measuring 2.7 by 2.7m is placed in the opening of a furnace, and fired up to simulate actual fire conditions. The wall is subjected to this fire and heat for a limited duration of time as per our request – i.e. 30, 60 or 120 minutes, depending on the system being tested. The Jumbo FireWALL must be able to withstand 3 important criteria, namely Fire Stability (load bearing capacity), Fire Integrity (tightness against flame, gas and other leakages) and Fire Insulation (180 degrees plus ambient is the cut-off limit), before a fire rating can be issued to the system.
Jumbo Plasterboard Steel Stud Partition Systems are designed for use in both fire-rated and non-fire-rated applications. Speedily erected, Jumbo FireWalls are suitable for every type of new construction – commercial, institutional, industrial, and residential. They provide smooth, durable, non-combustible walls that are lightweight and low in cost. Fire rated systems must be assembled strictly in accordance with the relevant test reports, and approved system details and specifications.
- Fire Rating Range 60-120 miniutes
- Sound Insulation Range from 42dB – 56dB
- Minimal wall thickness with optimal fire resistance
- Tested in accordance with SANS 10177:2
- Accommodates service within the drywall cavity
- Lightweight construction
- Less material wastage, cleaner site conditions
- Environmentally friendly products
All plasterboard is naturally fire resistant and is classified as non-combustible according to the Building Code. The core slows down the spread of fire by releasing chemically bound water when heated. This is a similar process to evaporation and aids cooling. Jumbo Fire Resistant Plasterboard contains additives that improve the natural fire resisting properties of plasterboard.
NOTE: Fire resistant Jumbo Plasterboards are just part of a complete fire rated assembly. To achieve a certain fire rating on a Jumbo FireWALL assembly, the complete system components from Pelican Systems has to be used and the assembly has to be installed according to Pelican Systems installation guidelines.
