Furthermore, building design and materials used decision in construction are also one of the crucial factors that could prevent fire.

Wall is the one of key important components for building. It should be fire protection for 30 to 120 minutes. The details are shown in the picture below.

Fire protection component - Fire resistance solution

The different fire resistance materials specify different performance criteria. There are many wall systems that could be fire protection up to 120 minutes, for instance, Brick Masonry, Light weight concrete block, Gypsum Drywall, Fiber cement drywall, Light weight panel. However, in case of fire, the most important thing is the time limit of fire resistance which can prevent structure enough to give people to escape from building.

Today we would like to introduce 3 of fire resistant wall system which provides peace-of-mind and safety

Fire Resistance Wall by SCG
1. Gypsum Drywall: is a lightweight wall system that composed of Fire Resistance Gypsum Board installed with galvanize frame and put insulation between spaces as to increase fire prevention efficiency. Wall system that be installed by Fire Resistance Gypsum Board 2 layers, it can protect fire up to 120 minutes.

2. Fiber Cement Drywall: is a lightweight wall system that composed of Fiber cement board installed with galvanize frame and put insulation between spaces as to increase fire prevention efficiency. However, the different insulation type specify different protection performance.

3. Wall Panel: or Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC) is wall system that composed of lightweight, steel reinforced, groove and tongue panels. It is non-combustible which up to 4 hours fire rating and outstanding thermal and acoustic insulation qualities.
