Fire-rated partitions are designed to provide vertical fire separation in structures such as dividing walls, preventing the spread of fire from the compartment of origin to adjoining compartments. A fire-rated partition is a partition for which the fire resistance performance and the reaction to fire performance have been determined according to the relevant standards.
Versafire is a 2400 x 1200mm board available in 6mm, 9mm and 12mm thicknesses. Versafire can be used in steel partition systems (up to 60 minutes fire resistance), timber partition systems (up to 60 minutes fire resistance), walling systems (up to 120 minutes fire resistance), as well as in suspended ceilings, spandrel partition systems and cold bridging systems.
