What are the sizes of the USG Structural Panels?
A: USG Structural Panels are:
What tools are needed to install USG Structural Panels?
Do you need to finish the joints when using USG Structural Panel Concrete Subfloor?
A: No joint finishing is typically required for USG Structural Panels when used in a sub-floor application.
What are USG Structural Panels?
A: USG Structural Panels are a portfolio of three products: Subfloor, Roof Deck and Foundation Wall. These cured-in-factory 3/4" panels are high-strength, fiberglass reinforced concrete panels for use in noncombustible construction. The panels are certified noncombustible by Underwriters Laboratories Inc (UL) in accordance with the current version of ASTM E136. Taking the place of traditional poured concrete & metal deck in cold-formed steel framing, USG Structural Panels are a lighter & easier solution, requiring only the basic carpentry tools for installing these panels.
Can the USG Structural Panels be used as a wall?
A: Yes, static shear wall capacities available in Product Evaluation Report PER-13067
Who can install USG Structural Panels?
A: The carpenter typically leads the installation of USG Structural Panel, which allows you to eliminate the many trades needed to pour concrete.
How do you install USG Structural Panel Concrete Subfloor?
Where can I find the load tables for USG Structural Panel Concrete Subfloor?
Which side is the top on USG Structural Panel Concrete Subfloor?
A: The side with the labeling is the top side for floor applications.
What are the benefits of using USG Structural Panels vs. poured concrete?
USG Structural panels are:
How are USG Structural Panels typically supported? What is the typical span?
A: USG Structural Panels can be supported by 18 ga. (43 mil.) or higher Cold-Formed Steel framing, SPF lumber, or Hot-Rolled Steel framing.
*Refer to page 4, http://www.PER14076.com for proper blocking instructions.
What are the sound ratings on this assembly?
A: Bare floor = min. STC 54 with G556 or H505 on 10" o.c. C-Joist; attainable value over a range of floor covering:
The following acoustic ranges of STC/IIC values are available.
Are all panels equivalent to USG Structural Panel?
A: No. USG Structural Panel is the only UL-certified noncombustible cementitious panel in North America. USG Structural Panel offers the simplest 2-hour floor/ ceiling fire assembly which saves time and money.
Will USG Structural Panel meet code requirement?
A: USG Structural Panel is compliant with the 2012, 2015 and 2018 IBC.
Is there a UL fire-rated system with USG Structural Panel?
A: Yes. We have the simplest 2-hour assemblies G556 and H505 with one layer of drywall (ULIX). We have the most comprehensive testing database of any panel for different assemblies, which can be found at: www.USGStructuralUL.com
Can the USG Structural Panel be left bare?
A: No, must be covered and protected from traffic wear.
What are the common applications for USG Structural Panels?
A: Subfloor is typically used in midrise buildings, health facilities, theaters, hotels, residential buildings and homes, multipurpose midrise buildings, panelized construction or in simple platforms or mezzanines. It is also used as the lightweight floor in permanent modular construction.
Roof Deck can be used for commercial low-slope or residential sloped roofing, balconies, and canopies. To see more information on what can be applied to USG Structural Roof Deck, reference High Performance Roof Applications (SCP68).
Foundation Wall can be used for foundation renovation or new building foundation construction, full-height basements, storm shelters, crawl space, and cellars.
What floor coverings can be used over USG Structural Panel Concrete Subfloor?
A: A variety of floor coverings can be used but an engineered underlayment is recommended over the panel except with carpet and pad.
Where has USG Structural Panel been installed?
A: View USGStructuralVideos.com for Project Profiles on just a few of the projects that have used USG Structural Panel.
What can be used as an underlayment?
A: USG recommends min. 1/4" USG Fiberock® Brand Underlayment board or 3/4" depth pour of USG Levelrock® Brand 2500.
As a structural wall panel, is USG Structural Panel good for blast protection?
A: Yes, when mounted on one side of 6" wall studs at 16"o.c., USG Structural Panel can attain GSA level ‘C’ protection (4psi blast pressure, 28psi-ms maximum blast impulse). If USG Structural Panel is mounted on both sides of the wall 6" stud at 16"o.c., USG Structural Panel can attain GSA level ‘D’ protection (10psi maximum blast pressure and 89psi-ms maximum blast impulse).
What happens if the USG Structural Panel Concrete Subfloor gets slightly damaged on the job-site?
A: Refer to our repair manual that takes you through the steps of repairing damages of square holes max. 6" by 6" or round holes max. 6" in diameter. http://www.USG.com/StructuralRepairManual
How do we achieve meaningful time saving on a project using USG Structural Panles?
A: USG Structural Panel is easy to install (lay, fasten), and only requires a single trade. Unlike poured concrete, it can be installed in any weather and it eliminates the wait to cure and dry. Other trades (e.g. mechanical and electrical) can begin work sooner. Schedule compression leads to lower project cost and faster time to open.
