From walls to ceilings

Fireguard® provides everything you need for cladding commercial spaces where a Group 2 fire-rated product is required. It’s available in different thicknesses suitable for both ceilings and walls, as well as larger-format sheet sizes that can be used for wall linings where ceiling heights are greater than standard. And it comes in a range of colours and textures, from the raw grey-core substrate ready for veneering to a beautiful palette of Laminex decors, to support a wide range of contemporary design solutions.

Contemporary Grey Core

The Fireguard® versatile grey core provides opportunities for creative design treatments by creating dark shadowlines in wall and ceiling surfaces. The raw MDF Trade Essentials Fireguard® product has unlimited potential for laminating and veneering. Or you can choose from the palette of solid colours and authentic woodgrains available in Laminex Fireguard® Décor, for an option that’s cost effective, highly durable, colour stable and easy to maintain.

Now Moisture Resistant

Unlike many other Fire Rated MDF products available, Fireguard® now features a moisture resistant (MR) core. This gives you added peace of mind, for projects and applications where the potential for exposure to unintended moisture is possible.

Locally stocked and Readily Available

Trade Essentials Fireguard® is available nationally at all of our distribution centres, while Laminex Fireguard® Décor is centrally stocked in Melbourne. There are no inventory commitments or minimum order quantities, which means that fabricators, cabinetmakers and joiners can now simply purchase exactly what they need for a particular job.
