Fermacell’s gypsum fibre drylining boards have been used by timber frame manufacturer Scotts of Thrapston to line the walls and ceilings of a new modular classroom building.

The project, for Weldon Church of England Primary School, in Northamptonshire, was the first of its kind for Scotts, who specified 153 of Fermacell’s 1200mm x 2400mm x 12.5mm boards to line the flat-pack 18.5m x 6.5m modular classroom.

Scotts selected Fermacell boards for their density, robustness and impact resistance – essential features for a classroom interior. The boards’ fire- and moisture-resistant properties were also important as was the lack of skimming required.

Fermacell boards have already been used on a second modular classroom project for Scotts at Sutton Benger Primary School in Wiltshire.
