Increased resistance to fire

Reduced sound transmission

  • Fire-resistant gypsum core.
  • GridMarX guide marks printed on board.

Gold Bond® Fire-Shield® Gypsum Board panels consist of a fire-resistant gypsum core encased in heavy natural-finish, 100% recycled paper on the face and back sides.

The face paper is folded around the long edges to reinforce and protect the core, and the ends are square-cut and finished smooth. For speed of installation, GridMarX® guide marks are printed on the paper surface.

Long edges of the panels are tapered or square.

Fire-Shield® Gypsum Board features a Type X core to provide additional fire resistance ratings when used in laboratory tested systems.

Check the Fire and Safety Information for a more complete explanation of how fire resistance ratings work.

Advantages

  • Lightweight, cost-efficient material that readily accepts a wide range of decorative finishes.
  • Gypsum board is easily cut for quick installation, permitting painting or other decoration, and the installation of metal or wood trim almost immediately.
  • The gypsum core will not support combustion or transmit temperatures greatly in excess of 212°F (100°C) until completely calcined, a slow process.
  • Expansion and contraction under normal atmospheric changes is negligible.

Gold Bond® Fire-Shield® Gypsum Board has achieved GREENGUARD Gold Certification.
