ABOUT
Continental Rapid Deco® Level 5 Type X with Protecta® Abuse Resistance and Mold Defense® factory-applied level 5 drywall is a fire-, abuse -, mold- and mildew-resistant gypsum board pre-finished with a specially formulated material to facilitate finishing to a Level 5 finish. This material is factory-applied to provide a consistent and uniform finish.

It is installed in the same manner as traditional drywall and finished with Rapid Deco Level 5 joint compound to easily and quickly produce a Level 5 finish (Please refer to the Rapid Deco Level 5 joint compound submittal sheet for technical information).

It is designed for use in applications that require direct mechanical attachment to wood or metal framing, or as a component of fire-rated assemblies. May also be used as a thermal barrier in roof assemblies when specified by the roofing manufacturer. To ensure optimum Type X fire resistance performance, follow recommended installation procedures for firerated assemblies. When properly sealed and used in a certified sound-rated assembly, this product will also contribute to the required sound transmission classification (STC) values.
