Firebloc® CP Gypsum Lay-In Ceiling Panel

Description

Firebloc® CP Gypsum Lay-In Ceiling Panel

FireBloc® CP Prefinished Gypsum Lay-In Ceiling Panels are comprised of a lightly stippled 2 mil white textured vinyl, laminated to a 1/2” thick Type C drywall sub-straight that provides a fire resistive, highly light reflective and easily cleanable 2’ x ‘2 or 2’ x 4’ product. When integrated into a standard 15/16” exposed grid system, or environmental type grids for severe conditions, FireBloc CP boards are ideally suited for use in interior or unexposed exterior ceiling applications such as commercial office space, soffits, parking garages, kitchens and baths. The panels also meet the USDA/FSIS requirements for use in food processing and food service areas.

The rigid core of FireBloc CP Prefinished Gypsum Lay-In Ceiling Panels prevents the sagging problems generally associated with conventional ceiling panels.

American Gypsum products contain no asbestos and no detectable levels of formaldehyde.
