Additionally, the unique production process of Magply keeps the chloride content to just 0.01%, enhancing both stability and long-term durability.
Crucially, Magply carries internationally recognised accreditations confirming the boards’ ability to deliver 90 minutes integrity and insulation under test conditions, furthermore Magply offers excellent racking strength, impact or pull-out resistance and all round ease of use in a variety of applications.
Magply has been tested under BS EN 476 Part 22 for timber frame applications and parts 6&7 to provide Class 0 certification for the surface spread of flames together with other approvals such as EN ISO 1182-2010.
