One hour fire rated… We would install one 15mm Gyproc fire rated rhinoboard either side of a 63mm drywall track. For a two hour fire rating, we would install two 15mm Gyproc fire rated rhinoboards either side of a 63mm track. Alternatively… for a one hour fire rating… we can also install 2 x Gyproc 12.5mm fire rated rhinoboards either side of a 63mm track.
