GIB Information Bulletin – 10 May 2016: 13mm GIB Fyreline® temporary substitution with 13mm GIB Braceline® GIB Noiseline®

GIBAs a precautionary measure we have put a temporary hold on 13mm GIB Fyreline®. Please note the product hold is isolated only to 13mm GIB Fyreline®.

During this period, and to minimise disruption to customers, Winstone Wallboards will send the higher density 13mm GIB Braceline® GIB Noiseline® to be used in place of 13mm GIB Fyreline® until further notice. This will be provided at the same price.

We are confident that 13mm GIB Braceline® GIB Noiseline®, when used in place of 13mm GIB Fyreline®, will deliver the level of performance as outlined in GIB® Fire Rated Systems technical literature.

Winstone Wallboards fully stands behind this and the GIB® Product and Systems Warranty applies.

At this point in time and until imminent further testing and assessment has been completed, BRANZ Appraisal No. 289 [2012] has been suspended as it related to 13mm GIB® Fire Rated Systems in GIB® Fire Rated Systems, 2012 technical literature. This includes the 13mm substituted GIB® plasterboard products.

If you have any 13mm GIB Fyreline® on site that you have not yet installed please do not install it and contact Winstone Wallboards on 0800 475 475 and we will arrange replacement with the 13mm GIB Braceline® GIB Noiseline® product.

If you have any queries please contact us on 0800 475 475.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your cooperation with this matter.
