 Get a copy of the installation instructions for installing the fire
gypsum board - the details such as nail spacing is important for
meeting the fire requirements. You will also need to make sure there
is plenty of wood at the joints - join sheets on a nog or stud,
otherwise the fire will go through the gap.
 You sure will be wanting the lifter, and a strong helper. the stuff
(just the thesis to go then I can call myself a fire engineer...)
