On steel frame, Megaboard is used in place of a traditional metal deck and gypcrete pour, creating dramatic reductions in construction time, weight and cost.
On wood frame, Megaboard can be used in place of a plywood or OSB deck with gypcrete pour. As well as creating significant reductions in construction weight and cost, Megaboard’s durability and water resistance will contribute significantly to a streamlined building schedule.
Non-combustible per IAPMO listings (ASTM E136 – Non-Combustible) for use in fire-rated floor/ceiling assemblies. IBC & IRC approved, with more than 30 UL/ULC listed assemblies up to 2 hours.
Exceptional span strength for use across a 24” span, along with exceptional diaphragm strength for lateral building rigidity.
Can be single trade fitted and remove the need for a gypsum underlayment.
Inorganic cementitious materials will not grow mold (per ASTM G 21 0/0), and ensure zero nutritional value for complete resistance to termites and all wood-boring insects.
A unique formulation which can help building designers and contractors achieve critical sound ratings, with the ability to reach 55+ STC/IIC rated floor/ceiling assemblies.
Manufactured to class-leading tolerances for on- and off-site precision. Resistance to water means panels remains structural while wet, and will not delaminate, warp, expand or bow.
Megaboard’s unique formulation – a high density and quality of cementitious material around a six-layer fiberglass reinforcement mesh – has been developed over more than a decade and tested at labs throughout the US and Canada for class-leading results in everything from fire resistance and sound insulation to shear, deflection and shear diaphragm strength.
Please review our Megaboard Subfloor specification sheet to learn how it delivers exceptional performance and compelling value for steel frame, wood frame and modular construction.
The Megaboard range of non-combustible structural building panels delivers exceptional performance alongside compelling value.
