Specifier – Systems + Design Guide


Systems +

Systems +, powered by USG Boral, is a comprehensive manual designed for building designers, builders, certifiers and plastering contractors dealing with fire rated and acoustic construction. It provides structural performance data and installation specifications for a wide range of USG Boral building systems, including lightweight wall and ceiling systems, masonry upgrades and beam/column fire protection systems.

Systems + incorporates a range of Fletcher Insulation products which allows Architects and Specifiers to readily specify full system solutions that incorporate Australia’s most loved and trusted brands.


Systems + lists fire rated wall systems up to FRL –/240/240 and 180/180/180.

Fire rated ceiling systems are available up to FRL 120/120/120 (from below) and beam/column fire protection systems up to FRL 180/–/– .

A wide range of acoustic systems are available to satisfy National Construction Code (NCC) and other performance requirements. Such systems include plasterboard wall and ceiling systems with Rw+Ctr=50 or higher, and a range of acoustic ceiling tiles up to NRC = 1.00.


USG Boral systems have been assessed to meet the relevant requirements of Australian Standards and the National Construction Code:

Fire resistance

Fire testing and assessment has been conducted in accordance with AS 1530.4 Methods for fire tests on building materials, components and structures — Fire resistance test of elements of construction and have been carried out by:

Acoustic performance


Fire, acoustic and structural test reports and opinions can be made available on request from USG Boral. You can be sure that Systems + has a design solution to satisfy your building design needs.
