Gold Bond® High Strength Fire-Shield® LITE®

Description

Gold Bond® BRAND High Strength Fire-Shield® LITE®  Gypsum Board panels consist of a fire-resistant Type X gypsum core specially formulated to be 15% lighter than standard Type X gypsum board.  High Strength Fire-Shield LITE is encased in heavy natural-finish, 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.  For speed of installation, GridMarX® guide marks are printed on the paper surface.

Long edges of the panels are tapered or square.  Tapered edges allow joints to be reinforced with ProForm® BRAND Joint Tape and concealed with ProForm® BRAND Ready Mix, Easy Finish® Ready Mix or ProForm® BRAND Quick Set Setting Joint Compounds.

High Strength Fire-Shield LITE Gypsum Board features a Type X core to provide additional fire resistance ratings when used in specific UL designs.

Check the Fire and Safety Information of our website under Resources for a more complete explanation of how fire resistance ratings work.
