So me, the non builder, is having to design every inch of a means of escape to satisfy building control. Can anyone recommend a fire resistant jointing tape and joint filler for us to seal the joins on the plasterboard before decoration? I have found VITCAS High-Temp Plasterboard Scrim Tape, but not sure about the filler. Many thanks to anyone geeky enough to know.

Just a normal scrim and skim will give half hour resistance. Thistle multi finish should keep him happy.

Super thanks..I have to provide technical specs for everything. No builder is willing to take on the paperwork and as such it's been two years living in an unfinished site. Must crack on I suppose....

This is exactly the job that an architectural technician would be able to do in no time at all.
However as you say there's no reason you can't do it yourself.
