Fastened to steel or timber-framing studs, Megaboard Sheathing can achieve more than 3,500 PLF nominal shear capacity to resist seismic and lateral wind forces on your building.
In common with all Megaboard products, Megaboard Sheathing is non-combustible per IAMPO listings for up to 2-hour fire rating, and has exceptional load-bearing strength.
Uniquely, these exceptional composite characteristics come from a single integral panel – a lightweight solution which cannot delaminate and is resistant to water, mold and insect damage.
Non-combustible per IAPMO listings (ASTM E136 – Non-Combustible). IBC & IRC approved for up to 2-hour fire ratings.
Shear capacity of more than 3,500PLF against seismic and lateral wind, plus exceptional structural load-bearing performance.
Lightweight, durable and single trade fitted for on-site efficiency and reduced build times.
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 ratings.
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.
