Educational Solutions

The impact of education infrastructure on learning outcomes has been extensively researched and documented.


Overall building design and condition, lighting, internal air quality, temperature and acoustics – have all been shown to have a direct effect on student achievements and behaviour.

USG Middle East offers a wide range of solutions to satisfy specific requirements of education buildings, such as fire protection, sound isolation, sound absorption and impact resistance. The use of USG Middle East ceiling tiles and drywall systems produced locally in the GCC can contribute to environmental performance and gain LEED points for projects targeting LEED.



Fire Protection

USG Middle East offers a wide range of lightweight, fire-rated building solutions that are based on UL assemblies. These include fire-rated walls and ceilings, fire tunnels and fire-protected columns and beams.


Acoustic considerations play an important role in creating educational environments for students. Such considerations include sound isolation for privacy or comfort enhancement as well as sound absorption in noisy areas. To learn more about recommended acoustic ratings for educational buildings refer to USG ME Acoustical Catalogue.

USG Middle East offers an extensive range of lightweight wall and ceiling systems providing various levels of sound isolation. USG Middle East also offers a range of sound-absorbing wall and ceiling linings including Echostop® perforated plasterboard with NRC ratings up to 0.80, and a wide range of acoustic ceiling tiles with NRC up to 0.95.

Impact Resistance

Impact damage to internal wall surfaces is a major contributor to the high maintenance costs of educational buildings. Whether they are located in corridors, classrooms or sports halls, walls are often subject to damage; far in excess of normal wear and tear. Therefore, they require the use of impact-resistant lining materials. USG Middle East offers a range of lining products offering various levels of impact resistance.

USG Sheetrock AR plasterboards has been specifically designed for use in high traffic areas such as corridors. Fiberock® Aqua-Tough is a paperless gypsum board with cellulose fibre reinforcement that is also effective against hard body and glancing impact.


Sustainable design is an integral requirement of many government and non-government projects. Government authorities and leading developers now commonly go beyond the minimum energy efficiency requirements stipulated in various national and international construction and building codes. The use of USG Middle East ceiling tiles and drywall systems produced locally in the GCC  can contribute to environmental performance and gain LEED points for projects targeting LEED.
