Spandrel Panel Solution
A spandrel panel is a pre-assembled structural panel designed to divide shared roof space or to be used as an external gable end roof panel. It is also used to help stop the spread of fire in residential buildings.
fermacell Gypsum fibreboard is inherently stronger than plasterboard. One 15 mm sheet of fermacell replaces two sheets of plasterboard to achieve the fire and acoustic requirements of a spandrel panel thus, giving all the performance you need with half the time and labour. The fermacell single skin solution for spandrel panels is compliant with Robust Details Ltd.
