SHEETROCK UltraLight Panels FIRECODE 30
The 5/8-inch non-Type X gypsum panels, meet current building codes for non-fire rated areas and are up to 30 percent lighter than the competition's standard Type X panel, making them easier to transport, lift, and install. "Our customers asked for a 5/8-inch lightweight panel, and that's what we gave them," said Scott Mahony, manager marketing and technical solutions, CGC. "These panels are perfect for non-fire rated areas in commercial buildings and offer a convenient and lightweight alternative where standard 5/8" Type X panels are not required to meet a one-hour fire rating. This is another first for CGC as we continue to lead the industry in lightweight technology and lighten the load on the construction trade across Canada."
