Europe's leading manufacturer of gypsum fibreboard has published a new brochure specifically for the education sector.
A brochure highlighting the fact that with fermacell gypsum fibreboard all that education specifiers have to choose between is six systems, compared to dozens when using conventional plasterboards, has been launched by the leading European manufacturer.
The new 24-page A4 "Solutions for educational buildings" brochure details the reasons why fermacell should be used for educational buildings, ranging from impact resistance (for which fermacell now offers a 20-year warranty) to its hanging strength which negates the need for most pattressing and helps to makes walls and rooms easier for architects to design.
The guide explains how fermacell meets the requirements for highly demanding educational buildings in terms of impact resistance (all are tested to BS 5234-2 - severe-duty), sound insulation (five levels of acoustic performance as per BB93) and fire safety (from 30 to 120 minutes fire resistance).
It also shows, with illustrations and tables, how just six systems and four basic constructions using fermacell satisfy all the requirements for sound, fire and impact resistance as specified in the SSLD Standard Specifications, Layout and Dimensions) published by the Department of Education.
Diagrams also help to illustrate wall linings and wall constructions using fermacell and the brochure also contains information on finishes and maintenance.
Deliberately designed with simplicity to reflect how simple it is to specify with fermacell, the brochure PDF is available to download from http://www.fermacell.co.uk/1038.php.
