Making a Choice
Fire Resistant Plasterboard prices primarily vary depending on the size, thickness and also fire resistance. If you choose to go for double layer wallboard it's likely to be more expensive as the fire resistance is higher. However, choosing a single layer and thinner Fireline provides lower resistance in fires but is often the cheaper option.
The price can also be affected by a number of other factors such as;
- Partition height
- Insulation type and thickness
- Stud type
- Staggered board joints
- Fixing details at the partition head and base.
All these factors should be assessed prior to making your decision, to ensure that you choose the correct fire resistant plasterboard.
