Shaftliner plasterboard panels from USG Boral, used in intertenancy wall applications, now offer resistance to mould, eliminating concerns over weather exposure onsite.

ShaftlinerMouldStop is specially manufactured and developed for use with USG Boral systems, including Partiwall, IntRwall and Shaftwall, forming a key component of interior linings in multi-residential and commercial projects.

Given the unpredictability of delays due to shifting project timelines or wet days, plasterboard panels are more likely to be exposed to weather onsite, resulting in mould growth. Removal of mould can add unnecessary delay and expense to the development.

In the event ShaftlinerMouldStop is exposed to the elements during construction, the plasterboard will resist mould growth, providing reassurance to builders using these intertenancy wall systems. The inclusion of mould inhibiting ingredients in USG Boral plasterboard systems also improves their performance. ShaftlinerMouldStop panels provide additional benefits of fire, sound and mould resistance for multiple applications.

ShaftlinerMouldStop has received the highest rating available when independently tested against ASTM D3273 and ASTM G21.

Compliant to relevant deem-to-satisfy (DtS) provisions of BCA for structural, fire and acoustic performance when used in USG Boral systems, ShaftlinerMouldStop is also a sustainable building product and manufactured using 100 per cent recycled liner paper. As with all USG Boral plasterboard products, ShaftlinerMouldStop has been independently tested to confirm compliance with Green Star specification limits for VOCs and formaldehyde.

“The introduction of ShaftlinerMouldStop provides residential builders and contractors using, or planning to use, USG Boral Partiwall and IntRwall intertenancy systems with a superior USG Boral solution,” said Chris Lubbers, USG Boral Category Manager, Internal Linings.

Now offered in Victoria, Tasmania, Queensland and Northern Territory, ShaftlinerMouldStop will be available nationally by the end of 2020.
