MagMatrix FirePro Structural Sheathing Board

Introduction

MagMatrix FirePro Structural Sheathing Board --Superior Fire Resistant and structural performance in the same panel --MagMatrix Structural Fire-Rated Sheathing is a patent-pending, code-compliant, Class A Flame Spread Rated, fire retardant made from a new sulfate magnesium oxide panel system that is both durable and easy to handle on the job site.

The structural sheathing can be used in fire-rated wall applications, as well as for fire retardant structural sheathing on the exterior and interior walls, pitched roofs, flat roof decks, and floors. It offers superior performance with both increased fire resistance and improved structural capacity in a single panel.

It is free of hazardous chemicals, with no VOC (off-gas) present during fabrication.

MagMatrix FirePro Structural Sheathing building board, for applications that require a slightly lighter board with improved fire properties. The product offers very similar properties to the cement particle board, however, due to the magnesium oxide formula, it offers greater fire resistance. Fully tested to achieve a one to two hours through wall solution with external sheathing board properties.

As a sheathing board, it can be used behind rain screen cladding, insulated facades, and cedar cladding (in this application, the use of a water-resistant/ breathable membrane such as Tyvek, on to the face of the board, is recommended in line with good building practices for external cladding). CE marked and conforms to BS EN 12467.

Manufacture Process

MagMatrix FirePro Sheathing Board is manufactured using inorganic substances and high tensile premium fiberglass meshes to gain an excellent impact and bending strength. It is making the first and second and third times curing technology at moisture conditions. That is very energy savings. That is unlike similar competitive products on the market which use autoclaving technology. This gives MagMatrix Fire-Rated Sheathing is an extremely low impact on the environment. It achieves its superior strength and flexibility by the introduction of 4 layers of high tensile glass fiber meshes. Consistent high quality of the product is maintained and monitored through an advanced digitally controlled process to ensure a superior finished board for our clients' application.  

Features and Benefits

MagMatrix FirePro Sheathing is a Class A Flame-Spread (ASTM E84)1 fire-rated sheathing product and provides resistance to fire3, mold, and mildew2 and is dimensionally stable when wet. Essentially, one product that combines fire resistance, structure, and dimensional stability. MagMatrix fire-rated exterior sheathing installs with standard tools, methods, and fasteners and can be nailed or screwed directly to wood or steel framing.

 

The sheathing board is a superior water-resistant that allows for water vapor permeance. Excellent fire resistance properties, and numerous fire-rated assemblies. Mold and moisture resistance. Compatibility with most exterior wall systems and applications. Conformity to design and code requirements. Strength - with enough flexibility to bend to curved surfaces. A lightweight sheathing that cuts like regular gypsum board and is easy to handle and install - with minimal skin irritation due to fully-embedded glass mat. MagMatrix MagSF Sheathing is the next generation of the industry standard for high-performance, weather-resistive, alternative to the gypsum-based sheathing. 

The Fire-rated sheathing board has been designed and engineered to outperform traditional wood, gypsum, and fiber cement sheathing panels, not only from a structural standpoint but also in terms of speed of installation on-site, which in turn translates into bottom-line savings.

It is a code-compliant Class A1 fire rated sheathing product and provides unparalleled resistance, not only to fire but also water, mold, and wood-boring insects. Essentially, one product that combines all of the benefits of plywood or OSB from a structural standpoint, exterior gypsum from a fire-resistance standpoint, and fiber cement from a water resistance standpoint.

The external sheathing installs with standard tools, methods, and fasteners and can be nailed or screwed directly to steel framing. Lap siding or cladding systems can be fastened directly to our panel, due to its superior fastener withdrawal capacity, which in turn reduces the risk associated with fasteners missing a stud.
