fermacell is one of the best known brands of building materials in Europe and stands for Gypsum Fibreboard. It was in 2009 that the product name extended to become the company name due to the increased globalisation of the company which has become established throughout the world.
The special manufacturing process and the homogenous mix of natural raw materials makes the fermacell Gypsum Fibreboard a multi-purpose, high performance building material that offers excellent acoustic, fire, impact and moisture resistance. The end result is a finished partition that combines the properties of solid masonry with the flexibility of dry wall, in a construction that is often thinner, quicker and cheaper to install than both. This means, with one product offering all these benefits, logistics and installation are much easier.
For Education buildings, fermacell offers design teams and specifiers a simple solution with only six individual fermacell systems and four basic constructions that satisfies all the performance requirements for Education builds as listed in the Department of Education’s publication: Standard Specifications, Layouts and Dimensions – Partitions in Schools.
For sports halls, the superior performance of fermacell allows it to be used as boarding for ceilings and walls in this application where impact protection as well as sound proofing and fire protection qualities are paramount.
Overall, fermacell is a premium quality building material tried, tested and proven in hundreds of education, public, residential and commercial buildings.
To demonstrate their confidence in the quality and performance of a fermacell wall, all fermacell systems now come with a 20 year impact warranty.
