CGC Introduces CGC Sheetrock® Brand UltraLight Panels Firecode® 30

January 22, 2013

CGC has a long history of innovation. It introduced Sheetrock® to the industry in 1917, created the first fire-resistant drywall in 1960, and launched the industry's first lightweight drywall portfolios which include ½" CGC Sheetrock® Brand UltraLight Panels, in 2011. Today's launch of CGC Sheetrock® Brand UltraLight Firecode® 30 panels, firmly positions CGC as a brand leader in the drywall category.

The 5/8-inch non-Type X gypsum panels, meet  current building codes for non-fire rated areas and are up to 30 percent lighter than the competition's standard Type X panel, making them easier to transport, lift, and install. "Our customers asked for a 5/8-inch lightweight panel, and that's what we gave them," said Scott Mahony, manager marketing and technical solutions, CGC. "These panels are perfect for non-fire rated areas in commercial buildings and offer a convenient and lightweight alternative where standard 5/8" Type X panels are not required to meet a one-hour fire rating. This is another first for CGC as we continue to lead the industry in lightweight technology and lighten the load on the construction trade across Canada."
