Why is Gypsteel Ultra® better than cheaper versions in the market?

Metal framing is the spine of false ceilings or drywall systems, determining the system’s strength, life and performance. Gypsteel ULTRA® goes through a stringent manufacturing process with strong quality checks. Local or cheaper versions are usually made from inferior raw materials without quality checks and put your system at risk. You must buy only genuine metal framing to make sure the ceiling does not bend or fall due to the use of low strength material. Also, the wall should not have inferior life due to low corrosion resistance. The difference in cost between genuine Gypsteel ULTRA® and the cheaper versions or look alikes is only about Rs.5 per sq ft. Not a high price to pay for peace of mind and performance backed by a world leader!

How do I identify that the metal framing I buy is genuine Gypsteel Ultra® from gyproc?

Gypsteel ULTRA® can be recognised by the clearly visible branding on the product such as the one in the accompanying image.

All framing systems carry the details of the manufacturing location, manufacturing date, raw material source and operator details to ensure quality control by Gyproc.

In case of doubts, please contact us and we will send our technical representative to verify the same.

Does gyproc only make the metal framing systems or does it also supply the accessories like screws etc?

Gyproc is a complete system provider and not only manufactures the main metal framing components but also supplies complete systems including the screws, connecting clips etc.

Ceilings offer the largest unobstructed view of a room and are the first thing people usually notice when they enter a building. The ceiling is an important element of room design and defines its aesthetics. Since a ceiling has a large surface area, it plays an important role in the acoustic and thermal comfort of a room.
