I would not recommend gluing - the whole idea is fireproofing - liquid nails or other adhesives are flammable and defeat the purpose - if a fire burns through the first layer and hits the adhesive it would just fuel the fire and add more toxic gases - if the garage is attached to your home, yu don't want to take this chance. Besides, those suckers are heavy enough! Combined it would be a load and a half!
