Gold Bond® Fire-Shield® Shaftliner
Gold Bond® BRAND Fire-Shield® Shaftliner panels consist of a fire-resistant Type X gypsum core encased in a heavy moisture-resistant green, 100% recycled paper on the face and back sides. The face paper is folded around the long edges to reinforce and protect the core, and the ends are square-cut and finished smooth. Long edges of panels are beveled for ease of installation
Shaftliner panels are designed to be used in construction of lightweight fire barriers for cavity shaftwalls (1-4 hr), stairwells and area separation fire walls in multifamily housing. The panels are key components in the I-Stud, C-T Stud and C-H Stud Cavity Shaftwall Systems and the H-Stud Area Separation Fire Wall Systems.
