ShaftWall provides a lightweight, fire-resistant structure to protect elements in confined spaces wherever access is limited to one side only. The system provides a protective structure which can be incorporated at an early stage of the construction without the need for scaffolding. The system can also be built horizontally to provide a fire-rated membrane. StairWall is a derivative of the ShaftWall system, which is used to protect stairwells.
