More than just a plasterboard, CSR Gyprock's latest eco range is leading the way for green building practices.
As Australia's environmental conscience
develops, designers and specifiers are
becoming increasingly interested in
improving the sustainability of their buildings.
CSR Gyprock has always been at the forefront
of green building practices -- first with the Good
Environmental Choice Australia (GECA) certified
plasterboard, and now with the Gyprock EC08 range.
EC08 Partition, EC08 Fire and EC08 Impact
provide designers of green buildings with the
flexibility to specify different grade boards for
is can reduce the cost of achieving Green
Star points because the premium fire, acoustic and
impact resistance boards are specified only where
these characteristics are desired.
EC08 Partition is the entry-level model,
suitable for areas where fire resistance and
acoustic properties are not required; while EC08
Fire is the original EC08 board, a fire-grade board
with higher acoustic properties than standard
plasterboard. EC08 Fire can be used in both wall
and ceiling systems.
High-traffic areas such as education and health
facilities will benefit from the fire and acoustic
rated EC08 Impact board with impact resistance.
All of the EC08 products are manufactured from
gypsum, 100 percent recycled paper and a small
amount of additives, and can also be recycled rather
than add to the growing waste problem.
