Oval Carpentry is installing the 9mm Magply boards across timber studwork, infilling a steel frame, ready for the battens and an underlay. Pivotal to the specification was the need to create a wall zone which can resist the passage of fire from outside the structure. This is a role to which Magply is ideally suited: frequently being specified for flat developments and buildings in very close proximity to neighbouring properties. Despite offering good adhesion for render systems where required, Magply boards are very moisture stable thanks to their modified MgO formulation that also represents an environmentally-friendly alternative to conventional plywood or OSB sheets. The production process keeps the chlorine content to just 0.01%, enhancing long-term durability.
