Education premises such as schools and universities require a certain standard of health and safety to ensure a conducive learning environment. School halls and classrooms require some measure of quietness. The impact of education infrastructure on learning outcomes through research has shown that a building’s design, condition, lighting, internal-air quality, temperature and acoustics have a direct correlation on student’s achievements and behaviour. We offer a wide range of solutions to satisfy specific requirements of education buildings, such as fire protection, sound isolation, sound absorption and impact resistance.

Fire Protection

Our lightweight fire rated walls and ceiling systems meets the required fire regulation. We offer a range of products within our fire-rated building solutions including fire-rated wall and ceilings, fire tunnel, fire protected columns and beams. For specific fire-rated walls and ceiling system please refer to USG Boral Fire Book for your guidance


For maintaining quietness in classrooms and corridors, we offer a range of sound absorbing materials including Impression ClimaPlus with NRC ratings up to 0.60

Impact Resistance

Impact damage to internal wall surfaces is a major contributor to the high maintenance costs of educational buildings. Whether they are located in corridors, classrooms or sports halls, walls are often subject to damage; far in excess of normal wear and tear.

USG Boral provides a range of lining products offering various levels of impact resistance. USG Boral Impactwall, which perform severe duty resistance has been specifically designed for use in high traffic areas whilst Fiberock® Aqua-Tough is a paperless gypsum board with cellulose fibre reinforcement that is useful against hard body and glancing impact.
