1) The following installation areas will be differentiated iaw. DIN 4103-1:

  • Installation area 1: areas with low gatherings of people such as, for example, apartments, hotel, office hospital rooms and similarly used spaces including the corridors must be assumed.
  • Installation area 2: areas with high gatherings of people such as, for example, assembly rooms, schoolrooms, lecture halls, exhibition and sales rooms and similarly used spaces must be assumed. to these count also always partition walls between rooms with a height difference to the floors < 1.00 m

 

2) For walls with heights more than 5,000mm, to which adjust fire protection requirements acc. to DIN 4102-4, you have to guide an equivalent verification. For walls of MultiGips gypsum blocks, 100mm, the max. permissible wall height is in this case 5.53m according to AbP (general appraisal certificate)

 

3) Corresponding to gross density the kinds of gypsum blocks will be differentiated iaw. EN 12859:

  • medium gross density: 800 kg/m³ ≤ ρ < 1,100 kg/m³ (M)
  • high gross density: 1,100 kg/m³ ≤ ρ ≤ 1,500 kg/m³ (D)

 

4) Double- or additional-leaf composition construction, which wythes are sticked close with gypsum adhesive according to EN 12860
