Systems+ Fire & Acoustic Systems


Introduction

Inspired by innovation from 12 countries, Systems+ is a collation of Fire and Acoustic systems developed specifically for the New Zealand environment.

The ultimate cross-reference selector guide, Systems+ is intended for use by building designers, builders, certifiers and plasterboard contractors who deal with fire-rated and acoustic construction.

Systems+ provides extensive fire rating, acoustic and structural performance data and installation specifications for a wide range of USG Boral building systems. This includes lightweight wall and ceiling systems, masonry upgrades and beam/column fire protection systems. A number of common junction and penetration details often required in many of these systems are also provided.
