ThermoBoard™ does not contain any organic solvents, formaldehyde, asbestos, oils or other toxic substances that can have a negative impact on the environment and waterways.
ThermoBoard™ is a Magnesium Oxide (MgO) based construction board that outperforms cement based boards, calcium silicate boards and regular gypsum plaster boards.
Fireproof, water resistant, termite resistant and mold and mildew resistant, are some of the excellent features of Thermoboard.
ThermoBoard™ excels through its unrivalled, all round performance characteristics. On a 80 mm metal stud partition system with 75 mm thick insulation , a single 10 mm ThermoBoard™ on either side of the metal stud, giving an overall partition thickness of 100 mm, will provide up to 3 hours fire resistance and 46 Rw dB. Achieving similar performance with a single stud and gypsum plasterboard partition system is unknown where fire rating is concerned, where at best only 2 hours fire resistance can be achieved. As for the acoustics, this can be achieved but not without increasing overall and increasing the overall wall thickness and the number of plasterboard layers on either side. Both of which will result in either a loss of premium floor space for the client and increased labor costs for the insulation contractor.
