Fire & Moisture Resistant Gypsum Board

Fire causes major losses not only to human lives but to property also. Thus, it makes sense to live and work in fire-safe buildings by installing fire-resistant gypsum board for ceiling purposes. Gypsum board is one of the best fire-resistant structural materials and is also known as drywall. It consists of different layers of gypsum sandwiched between different sheets of paper. Suitable to install both in residential and commercial settings, we at Gypsonite take pride in supplying different lengths and styles of gypsum boards to customers at affordable rates, thereby earning the recognition as one of the most reputed fire-resistant gypsum board distributors in India.

Different Kinds of Fire Rated Gypsum

The chemical formulation of Gypsum includes water, which makes it a perfect fire resistive barrier. In addition to this, gypsum also contains glass fibre reinforcement allowing gypsum to hold fire in a better manner. So, when any gypsum drywall or board exposed to fire, the water component starts releasing steam and results in heat transmission.

We act as a one stop solution provider of fire and moisture resistant gypsum board distributor as we keep an extensive stock of different kinds of fire-rated gypsum boards. These include:

  1. Type X: It is a board with 5/8 inch of thickness and a minimum fire rating of 1 hour.
