SUPERIOR FIRE RESISTANCE

There are significant cost saving opportunities available with the innovative light weight alternative to plasterboard. Save on design, installation and logistics costs by using StaarBoard. StaarBoard allows builders to efficiently plaster and insulate, all in one, with StaarBoard. An innovation in internal sheeting, this internationally patented product is superior in every way, to traditional plasterboard sheeting.

StaarBoard:
- Lightweight, one third of the weight of plasterboard
- Vastly more energy efficient than plasterboard
- Thermally insulates
- Acoustically insulates
- Fire resistant
- Moisture resistant
- Cost effective
- Ideal for use in residential and commercial buildings.

StaarBoard has been developed with in depth consultation with Builders, Architects and Tradespeople.

ENHANCE YOUR GREEN CREDENTIALS

StaarBoard is working on manufacturing options for its proprietary insulative wall and ceiling board product. StaarBoard achieves its unique thermal and acoustic properties by sandwiching special layers of products between the outer skins. These products are widely used in many different thermal insulation applications for both residential and commercial buildings because of their versatility and performance. The products can be applied to wall framing at the time of construction or re-modelling as well as exteriors for metal faced core panels. Incorporating tailored Geopolymer binder layer into the current wall board laminates would potentially deliver enhanced product structural integrity and fire performance while eliminating handling defects. These performance improvements would significantly widen the field of application as well as product specification.
Within this context, the adoption of Geopolymer binders to StaarBoard wall board manufacture aims to achieve target product technical benefits combined with potential direct cost savings and enhance “green” credentials of products. Geopolymer binders offer ~70% GHG reduction compared to ordinary Portland cement on equal weight basis.

How does StaarBoard compare?

 

With its patented properties and characteristics, 25mm of StaarBoard sheeting has equivalent insulation and sound proofing qualities that compare to bricks and cement finishes.

 

THE LOGICAL CHOICE

StaarBoard is installed, using the same tools and methods, as traditional plasterboard.
Use StaarBoard on your ceilings to give your home, office, factory or any type of building a high insulation value and fantastic energy savings.
StaarBoard can be used with ceiling insulation, such as ceiling batts, poly weave and foil faced blankets, to improve R values.
Use StaarBoard on the internal exterior walls to envelop your building (60% - 80% energy savings)
StaarBoard’s core contains a fire retardant product, so it not only looks smart, it can protect you from flames for up to 2 hours.

 

GREEN BOARD

Products used to manufacture StaarBoard are environmentally friendly sustainable and recyclable.
It is estimated that over a 50-year period, these products will save at least 1000 times more energy, than embodied in the fossil fuel, used to produce them in the first place.
A large reduction in carbon dioxide emissions, can be delivered, through improving the energy efficiency of buildings.
As well as the environmental benefits from improving the energy efficiency of buildings, there are also significant financial benefits. For the domestic energy consumer, heating costs are dramatically reduced, when the home is insulated using high rating products. For the industrial user, increased energy efficiency of buildings, not only means lower energy bills, it also reduces the impact of any future Climate Change Levy.
Eliminating the requirement for other insulation products, means a considerable reduction in material and installation costs.

THE PRODUCT

Eliminate the use of additional insulation materials. StaarBoard delivers significant cost advantages over traditional sheeting. Lighter weight means reduced transit, handling and labour costs. Once installed StaarBoard continues to deliver savings, in the form of reduced heating and cooling costs, eliminating the use of additional insulation materials. 
StaarBoard also provides better acoustic insulation that traditional plasterboard, making it the perfect choice for noisy environments.
The core of StaarBoard is 99% waterproof. Traditional plaster boards swell and crumble when subjected to water, StaarBoard repels water and simply dries out as conditions allow.

On the image below, we have a sample of two tones and textures. We have the ability to create a surface to support your design requirements. Our boards can be painted as well, the same as any other wall lining product.

Demonstration Vidoes

This is a test the engineering team conducted using a direct flame from a Butane torch rated at ~1400 deg C. The test was conducted on some early stage samples, to see how well the product could insulate against extreme heat. Wait till the end of the video to see the final result.

A similar test was conducted from a different view to once again demonstrate StaarBoard's fire and insulative characteristics. Using the Butane torch with a direct flame on the board, one of the engineers was able to place their hand on the backside of the board without feeling the extreme temperature.

 

FAQ's

Do you have overseas distributors?

No we don't, we are planning to distribute to the Australian domestic and commercial market. Depending on order sizes and your accepted price point export can be negotiated. 

Where can I find more detailed information about StaarBoard?

Other than the website, StaarBoard will have more detailed specification data available at the conclusion of testing with UQ. 

How does StaarBoard stack up financially?

StaarBoard is installed similar to plasterboard using the similar processes. There are financial gains through reduced handling and install time. There are also financial gains through integrating other products such as insulation into the one board. 

When will you begin distribution of StaarBoard?

Following testing of our product we are anticipating a production run around early 2019. 

 

How will I know that the product is available?
