FIRE LINING

ICON-Fire-Lining   Fire Lining

Fire lining is an important safety feature in retail units. It is incredibly effective at stopping a fire from spreading throughout a building which gives anyone inside significantly more time to exit safely and the emergency services a longer window to minimise damage.

What is Fire Lining?

Fire lining is a form of drywall which has various elements added in order to boost the inherent fire-resistant qualities of drywall products.

When quality products are used, and they are installed correctly, drywall will prevent flames and heat from travelling around a building. This is because of how drywall is manufactured.

The first thing to note is that regular drywall is very good at slowing the spread of fire throughout a building. The material itself is composed of tightly compressed gypsum, an inflammable soft mineral, between two layers of very thick quality paper.

However, when exposed to consistent, intense heat, drywall will eventually start to fail. Granted, this will take a long time, but ultimately, the water content within the soft gypsum will evaporate. At this stage. the drywall will begin to crumble, and the walls will collapse allowing the fire to spread through.

Manufacturers can minimise this issue even further by adding non-combustible glass fibres to the drywall panels. These fibres will allow the gypsum to resist the heat even longer, maintaining its structure and, as a result, stopping the fire from spreading any further.

Our Company

As mentioned, the effectiveness of fire-resistant drywall is dependent not only on the quality of the product but also the quality of installation. Without a detailed finish to particular dimensions and specifications, the fire-resistant qualities of the panels will be compromised significantly.

At SWB Shopfitting and Joinery we are committed to standards of absolute perfection and have built a reputation for quality shopfitting work. With our experience, you can be sure that the finish we provide will not only look fantastic but, in the case of fire lining, will fulfil its full safety potential.
