Gyprock Shaft Liner has been developed to offer enhanced safety to building occupants. These heavy duty boards provide high levels of fire and acoustic resistance for lift wells, shafts and stairwells.

Product Overview

Shaft Liner’s glass fibre-reinforced core is encased in a heavy duty linerboard. This enables it to resist fire and make it ideal for use as part of a fire rated wall or ceiling system.These panels also offer exceptional acoustic insulation properties and are used in Gyprock commercial wall and ceiling systems where a high fire rating or high acoustic performance is specified.

Gyprock Shaft Liner can be identified by its blue coloured face paper.

Typical applications include:

  • Intertenancy walls and party walls
