Greater thickness provides increased resistance to fire and reduced sound transmission

  • Reduced labor and material costs by using fewer layers (up to 10%).
  • Thicker core equals added abuse resistance.
  • Cost-efficient material that readily accepts a wide range of decorative finishes.

Gold Bond® Ultra-Shield FS® 3/4" Gypsum Board consists 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. Long edges of the panels are tapered.

For speed of installation, GridMarx® guide marks are printed on the paper surface.

Gold Bond® Ultra-Shield FS® 3/4" Gypsum Board features a Type X core to provide additional fire resistance ratings when used in laboratory tested systems.

Basic Uses

Gold Bond® Ultra-Shield FS® 3/4" Gypsum Board- For single-layer - steel stud and cavity shaftwall systems. The greater thickness provides increased resistance to fire and reduced sound transmission vs. a single layer of 5/8" Type X.

Advantages

  • Gypsum Board is easily cut for quick 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.
  • UL Classified for fire resistance, surface burning characteristics, and non-combustibility.
  • Scores and snaps easily, with no special handling requirements.
  • Expansion and contracting under normal atmospheric changes are negligible.

Gold Bond® Ultra-Shield FS® 3/4" Gypsum Board has achieved GREENGUARD Gold Certification.
