AMERIFORM NEWSLETTER | JULY 2008

NEW 1 & 2 Hour Fire-Rated Floor / Ceiling Assemblies (ASTM E-119) for ARMOROC. 

More info here

Ameriform & Marino\WARE now offer 1 & 2-hour fire-rated floor/ceiling assemblies (ASTM E119) designed as follows: 

  • Single layer of 3/4" Armoroc by Ameriform

  • 10" x 16 gage JoistRite by Marino\WARE

  • Mineral-wool insulation

  • Traditional framing accessories

  • Single layer of 5/8" Type C gypsum board

This single-layer of gypsum board satisfies both 1 & 2-hour fire rated assemblies.  This offers a large advantage as most 2-hour assemblies (using structural cement board) require 2-layers of gypsum. 

 

Eliminating the second layer of gypsum board not only translates into savings on money, time, materials & labor - it is a more environmentally friendly design.
