Performance and Reliability

PRS Fireboard is a Euro Class A1 non-combustible fire board, rigorously tested in many applications to both BS and EN standards proving high performance passive fire protection for most specification where fire is a concern.

Applications

     These Include:

  • Fire safe OSM for Timber Frame and Park Homes.
  • Non-Combustible Soffit Lining.

  • Fire protection for walls, floors and ceilings.

  • Non-combustible Sheathing and Infill Boards.

  • Lift Shaft Lining.

  • Any application requiring Non-Combustible Fire protection boards.
