The Red Book-Fire and Acoustic Design Guide
The Gyprock™ and Cemintel™ Fire & Acoustic Design Guide…’The Red Book™’, provides a ready reference to the performance of an extensive range of Gyprock and Cemintel™ fire and acoustic wall, ceiling and column/beam systems.
Over the last 50 years, CSR has developed effective, practical and cost effective fire and acoustic systems for most applications. Fire, acoustic and structural testing has been carried out for all Gyprock™ products as well as those of Bradford™ Insulation and Rondo Building Products. To complement this extensive testing program, Gyprock™ has obtained certified assessments from appropriate authorities on the likely performance of some systems. These assessments are based on test results and expert opinion. Thermal values are also included in the system tables.
Gyprock™ acoustic rated systems have been assessed by PKA Consulting, acoustic engineers.
Gyprock™ fire rated systems have been tested or assessed to AS1530.4 at approved testing laboratories. Gyprock™ has developed systems with ‘Fire Resistance Levels’ (FRL) up to –/180/180 (3 hours). The systems and performance specifications detailed in this manual are guaranteed only for the construction specified.
CSR is continuously developing its products, which may result in changes to product specifications, range and performance. The systems and products in this Fire and Acoustic Design Guide are current at the publication date November, 2011. Details of the current product specifications, range and performance characteristics, and additional technical assistance can be obtained from CSR designLINK™ on 1800 621 117 or firstname.lastname@example.org
