Promat Fire Wall and Ceiling Board


PROMATECT® 100 is the leading board for fire rated wall systems.  The fire rated board is developed from matrix engineered mineral and gypsum technology using PROMAXON®. The board can be used for wall, ceiling and steel protection systems for up to 4 hours fire protection.

PROMATECT® 100’s features include superior insulation properties, excellent work-ability – easy to cut, a smooth and flat surface, high flexural strength providing the ability to form curved linings and is very cost efficient.

Progressive Materials are the exclusive technical consultants for Promat products in Western Australia, and can provide design support for Promat’s fire rated board systems.   We have extensive experience with the specification of fire rated plasterboard systems for fire rated walls, fire rated ceilings, and structural steel protection.   Our PROMATECT® 100 has been used in projects around Australia including in Perth on hotel, hospital, office and mixed used residential projects.  We have a sample wall with PROMATECT® 100 on display in our warehouse in Wangara which is available to be inspected.

PROMATECT® 100 fire rated wall systems are thinner than traditional fire rated plasterboard wall systems.   By making use of the products superior insulation properties we can achieve thinner over all wall design whilst maintaining the required Fire Resistant Level (FRL) and acoustic ratings.  PROMATECT® 100 solid partition system can achieve 2 hour FRL between compartments by only utitlising 40mm of space.

PROMATECT® 100 fire rated walls can be constructed with both steel and timber studs starting at 64mm.  For up to a 2 hour FRL only a single layer of board is required on each side of the stud work.  PROMATECT® 100 fire rated board can also be used to construct fire rated ceilings and bulkheads.   Promat’s Australian approvals to AS 1530: Part 4 allow us to specify and construct ceiling systems that achieve a 4 hour FRL.
