Abstract: We show the feasibility of large area timing RPC detectors for experiments dealing with fragmentation-like primary interactions and/or high detector multiplicities, without significative degradation of the detector capabilities. The tested prototype is constituted by three independent cells placed into grounded aluminium boxes, which reduce the cross-talk to the level of 0.4%. Each box consists of a 4-gap glass-aluminium RPC.
