Light internal firewalls
Interior firewalls can be produced very easily and economically using gypsum blocks. The firewalls have a double-leaf configuration of, in each case, 60 mm thick blocks. To increase the mechanical stability a special glass fibre lattice is embedded in the construction.
A double-sided gypsum plaster additionally increases the fire resistance. Compared with other types of solid construction the walls with a thickness of 160 mm are extraordinarily slim. Depending on the material, masonry materials are usually of a size 240 to 300 mm. Firewalls made from gypsum blocks enable an optimised planning of supporting formwork as, with a room hight till approx 3,30 m it belongs to the light partition walls within the sense of DIN 1055-3.
