Fireclad® Fire-rated External Wall System

Fireclad® Fire-rated External Wall System

Introduction

USG Boral FireCLAD is a fire-rated industrial exterior wall system for portal framed industrial buildings such as warehouses and factories, where external walls in close proximity to neighbouring properties or other buildings are required to be fire-resistant.

Developed in conjunction with BlueScope Steel, FireCLAD provides a light-weight alternative to precast concrete or masonry fire-rated external walls in new and existing buildings.

The FireCLAD System utilises USG Boral Firestop or Fire Wetstop plasterboard linings attached to the building portal frame underneath Colorbond® steel cladding, to provide fire resistance levels of 60, 90 and 120 minutes from the external side. The FireCLAD System has been assessed and certified in accordance with the Building Code of Australia (BCA),
