Shaftliner® Type X drywall

Continental Shaftliner Type X is designed for use in lining elevator shafts, ventilation shafts, and stairwells; for area separation walls in residential housing; and for other interior building applications requiring fire resistance.

ABOUT
Continental Shaftliner Type X is designed for use in lining elevator shafts, ventilation shafts, and stairwells; for area separation walls in residential housing; and for other interior building applications requiring fire resistance.

The panel has a specially formulated, non-combustible gypsum core enhanced with glass fibers for strength and additional fire resistance. It is covered with an aqua, water-repellent paper facing on the front, back and long edges. Normal applications do not require finishing treatments, but the aqua surface will accommodate painting or other finishes after proper surface preparation.

Shaftliner Type X panels are only one component of a shaft or area separation wall assembly. For fire-rated resistance, the panels must be used as required in the listed design. See the Continental Shaftwall design literature or the Underwriters Laboratories (UL) listings.

APPLICATIONS
Shaftliner Type X is tested in a series of designs for a wide range of ceiling, wall, and enclosure applications. It is used for:

  • Elevator enclosures
  • Stairwell enclosures
  • Mechanical enclosures for electrical, plumbing, HVAC, and venting services
  • Unlined shafts for return air handling
  • Area separation fire walls
  • Corridor ceilings
  • Soffits

ADVANTAGES
Low Installation Cost:
Compared to block construction Shaftliner Type X is installed easily and quickly. It cuts and snaps like standard drywall.

Fire Resistance: Shaftliner Type X is formulated to perform in accordance with ASTM C 1396, Section 6 and C 442, Type X and is UL labeled (Type LGFCSL).
