Fire Resistant

MagPanel® is fire resistant building material for commercial and residential construction
  • Magpanel holds an A1 Fire Rating in accordance with EN 13501-1+A1:2010, clause 12, demonstrating its superior fire resistance. It has been rigorously tested to withstand temperatures exceeding 750°C (1,382°F) for over 30 minutes without any discoloration.
  • Magpanel is also certified under EN ISO 1716 and EN 13501, ensuring compliance with stringent fire safety standards and providing customers with peace of mind regarding its fire-resistant properties. You can review our fire rating test results on our combined testing document.
  • Magnesium oxide boards in general typically have a 0/0 rating on the ASTM E84 / UL 723 Flame Spread and Smoke Developed Index.
  • Magnesium oxide boards typically emit up to 30 lbs. of water as vapor during a fire event, helping to cool and contain the fire.

Environmentally Safe

MagPanel® is not made with any toxic materials like benzene, ammonia, and asbestos
  • Completely recyclable.
  • Landfill friendly – no leaching of toxic inputs into the water table.
  • Acts as a nutrient when it is ground up and sprinkled into the soil.
  • Low energy manufacturing process.
  • Captures carbon dioxide CO2 during the curing process.

Environmental Exposure

Construction can take place in virtually any environment, at any time, and in any season.
  • MagPanel® gains its strength and resistance from very strong bonds between magnesium and oxygen atoms that form magnesium oxide crystals (with the chemical formula MgO).
  • Mineral based green building material. It is freeze/thaw tested for 36 months.
  • resistant to extreme cold or heat so can be build anytime of the year.

Fungus Resistant

MagPanel® antimicrobial characteristics make it resistant to mold, mildew, fungus and rot
  • Won’t warp when re-dried.
  • Does not degrade in wet areas.
  • Does not provide an environment for bacteria spores to spread.

Builder Friendly

Builders have been using magnesium oxide for literally thousands of years.
  • Stronger and more durable than gypsum and fiber cement products.
  • Contain no carcinogenic dust.
  • Scores and snaps cleanly and easily.
  • Finishes beautifully, achieving Level 5 finishes in half the time, with half the mud and paint.
  • Eliminates blocking due to its unparalleled screw and nail holding capacities.
