Fire board is vitally important and, in extreme cases, can save both your home and your life. This dense material contains a high concentration of water, along with the mortar, gypsum, and other fibres, and is also flame retardant. It is used as an extra layer of insulation boarding and, in the event of a fire, the water in the material releases and forms a wet layer which. This feature, along with the flame retardant, helps to reduce and contain the fire. When you buy your fireboard from eBay, be sure to buy the thickest boards that you have room for, as the thicker the board, the more protection it provides in the event of a fire. Fireboard is easy to install and easy to cover when you decorate. You can even buy shaped and fluted fireboard if you want something a little different. Protect your home and your loved ones by purchasing and installing fireboard in high risk areas, and rest easy knowing you are well protected.
