Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify the physical characteristics of magnesium oxide (MgO) panels in terms of their make-up and basic performance attributes for use in floor assemblies in multifamily projects.
  2. Investigate the fire-resistance capabilities and testing standards that demonstrate the ability for MgO panels to provide fire safety in buildings.
  3. Assess the acoustical capabilities of MgO panels in terms of meeting or exceeding code requirements for multifamily buildings on certain tested assemblies in dwelling separations.
  4. Compare and contrast the use of MgO structural panels with other floor underlayment options, particularly gypsum underlayment, in order to specify MgO panels appropriately in multifamily floor assemblies.
