Dry-lining partitions are valued for their flexibility and speed of install and yet traditional systems are not as robust as blockwork. However, with fermacell you can have all the advantages of dry-lining without having to compromise on strength.
Because fermacell is a Gypsum Fibreboard it is much stronger than conventional plasterboard and this means it is very robust. According to BS5234 part 2, partitions built with a 12.5mm layer of fermacell achieve the maximum performance requirement of “severe” when tested using both hard body impact and soft body impact.
The severe performance level is mandated in the Standard Specifications, Layouts and Dimensions for Education document, published by the Department for Education.
However, fermacell partitions exceed the test requirements stipulated in BS5234 part 2 and we are confident that a fermacell partition will survive whatever comes its way in the normal hustle and bustle of the life of the building. Should a fermacell partition become damaged through impact then it is also very easy to repair.
In fact, we are so confident in the ability of a fermacell partition to survive the day to day bumps and knocks in a busy environment such as a school corridor, all fermacell partitions come with the fermacell impact warranty.
The fermacell impact warranty gives you peace of mind that your fermacell partition should not require expensive repair work and thus the lifetime cost of the building can be significantly improved.
