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.
