To meet the increasing requirement for Green Building Solutions in Australia, Knauf offers a range of products certified under the Good Environmental Choice of Australia (GECA) label. These include MastaShieldECO, FireShieldECO, QuadShield and ImpactShield.
Knauf’s GECA certified plasterboard products can achieve 100% Green Star points and do not require submission of further documentation for the materials category of the Green Star ratings tools. Each of the products incorporate the benefits of conventional plasterboard systems - light weight, recyclable and high performance, as well as an independent environmental product certification. GECA Panel Board Standard 04-2011 assesses areas such as a products use of materials from sustainable sources, the use of environmental management systems and waste minimisation in production, supporting both product stewardship and the recycling of construction waste.
For commercial or residential applications, use MastaShieldECO for standard wall and ceiling systems. Select FireShieldECO for areas where a fire rating is required, or ImpactShield for impact and fire resistance. QuadShield is a unique 4-in-1 plasterboard which can be used in fire-rated, acoustic, impact and water resistant applications.
