PABCO® Impact Resistant

Primary Uses

  • Interior walls where surface durability against abrasions and surface indentation is necessary
  • High humidity interior areas  where enhanced mold and moisture protection is needed on wall and ceiling applications
  • High traffic interior walls such as corridors in schools, hospitals, offices and courthouses and correctional facilities
  • Not intended for areas where constant or excessive moisture is present such as showers, steam rooms or saunas
  • New or renovation projects with frame spacing not more than 24 inches on center

PABCO® Impact Resistant Drywall panel is a true super panel:  Type X fire-resistant, mold-resistant, water-resistant, abrasion resistant and impact resistant. PABCO® Impact Resistant is manufactured with a proprietary high density fire resistant Type X core that incorporates an embedded fiberglass mesh to further enhance impact resistance.
