Gold Bond High Strength Fire-Shield LITE Gypsum Board is a specialty gypsum board formulated to be up to 15 percent lighter than standard 5/8-inch Type X gypsum board. The specially formulated lightweight properties of the board offer the potential to both improve productivity and reduce transportation costs. In addition to the lower weight, the product offers better working properties including an improved score and snap, reduced dust and an improved strength-to-weight ratio. In addition, its face paper features GridMarX guide marks to allow installers to quickly identify fastener lines for stud and joist framing as well as nail and screw patterns. The product is GreenGuard Children & Schools Certification.
