The solid gypsum blocks provide excellent acoustic insulation using edge strips optimised though acoustic technology. Particularly high requirements on acoustic insulation, for example with apartment partition walls or corridor separating walls in hotels and hospitals, can be met securely using double-leaf walls.
In a case of fire, with gypsum building units, the flames find no support – or in technical terms: gypsum does not increase the thermal load in buildings. With its special crystal structure it provides even an additional active contribution against the spread of fire and has therefore proven itself as highly effective fire protection.
The ability to take up water is shown by a series of building materials – not always to the advantage of the building. The procedure is turned into something useful by gypsum as it again, under changed room climatic conditions, releases the moisture previously taken up. This regulates effectively the living climate in interior rooms.
