FireCrunch Tongue & Groove (T&G) MEETS ALL BAL FZ FLAME ZONE REQUIREMENTS.
Our flooring and decking board is resistant to not only fire, but also water, sound, impact, termites, mould and bacteria.
FireCrunch is the leading choice as a multi-purpose, all in one building board solution that is also very environmentally friendly.
FireCrunch T&G flooring board is suitable for both interior/exterior flooring and decking applications. It allows for a durable and lighter weight building board that is quick and easy to install.
The T&G board is grooved down one long side with a matching tongue down the other. Our T&G flooring and decking board range comes in a GREY OR WHITE finish, distinguishing it from other products.
Tongue and Groove (T&G) board dimensions:
16mm thickness, TG16 2700 x 600 mm board size, approximately 32kg
19mm thickness, TG19 2700 x 600 mm board size, approximately 39kg
FireCrunch flooring board does not require any special tools for installation, and can be cut and installed with timber tools, and no expensive pre-drilling is required.
Main benefits of FireCrunch 16mm and 19mm T&G:
15% less in weight and some 30% less in cost than Compressed Fibre Cement (CFC).
Superior to many structural flooring and decking products, for use with timber or carpet overlays ,ceramic tiles in wet, semi-wet and dry area.
Designed for serious floors and decks. ?
It is stronger, light weight, easy to use and install and pipe routs in seconds with timber tools saws and routers
It has been manufactured and designed to be used in both external and internal applications such as structural flooring using ceramic tiles, marble, slate or granite in wet and dry areas.
FireCrunch is Australian NATA fire test accredited by CSIRO (firecrunch.com.au/certification) FRL 90/90/90. FCA carries 6.0 kN loading over 450 centres and is very environmentally friendly.
FireCrunch is highly resistant to fire (CSIRO TESTED) and will not burn in a fire storm. FireCrunch is applicable in BAL 12.5 to 40 and FZ Flame Zone regulation areas when used to protect exposed timber framing, eaves, joists etc. It is tested by the CSIRO to worst case scenario of fire storm conditions.
FireCrunch is an extremely dense, hardwearing and long lasting building sheet that is resistant to permanent water damage when installed and maintained correctly. This makes it the smart choice for laundries, kitchens, bathrooms floors and decking in both domestic and commercial projects. FireCrunch is also ideal as a substrate for tiling, marble, slate or granite in wet and dry areas.
FireCrunch is 8 to 10 times stronger than plasterboard reducing loss and breakage. It is also less expensive and lighter in weight than compressed fibre cement (CFC) panels. Due to its material properties, FireCrunch does not break down or warp in water, therefore less replacement requirement after flooding... simply clean, seal and repaint.
One of the biggest issues for Australian homes is Termites. FireCrunch is made from a uniquely formulated, non-toxic fibre composite mix so is impervious to termites and insects. It totally protects expensive timber framing.
Due to the predominant chemical compound Magnesium Oxide (MgO) and Magnesium Sulphate (MgSO4) in our building boards, it eliminates mould resistance as well as mildew and moisture resistance in warm and humid conditions. FireCrunch’s Magnesium Oxide composition means those damaging and unhealthy elements can’t grow or survive on our building board.
FireCrunch is an Australian NATA tested product and has total sound and acoustic resistance as a sound proof building board up to Rw 62 net 52 on 10 mm boards in double stud framing for fire separation walls.
Cement board and plasterboard manufacturing use kiln temperatures of more than 1300°C. FireCrunch is produced at temperatures around 650°C therefore producing 50% less Co2 during the manufacturing process, in carbonation. It draws back 90% of the Co2 produced and makes it a virtually carbon neutral product 5%.
