What Group Rating does my wall or ceiling lining need to be?

We get asked this question almost every day! So to help you find the right answer every time, we have developed the Wall & Ceiling Lining Materials Group Rating Calculatoran easy to use tool that allows you to quickly and accurately find the group rating required based on your project details.*

The calculator uses the data from the BCA Deemed-to-Satisfy Provision Specification C1.10 Table 3 which outlines that “a wall or ceiling lining system must comply with the group number specified in Table 3: Wall & Ceilings Lining Materials”.

If you have any other questions around group ratings or fire compliance please contact us.
