Metal Frames Ceilings
Importance of metal in a false ceiling and drywall system
Gyproc false ceilings and drywalls are lightweight and easy to install. Besides enhancing the beauty of any interior space, they also provide better acoustics, fire protection and thermal insulation. They are 100% recyclable.
A drywall or false ceiling system has a strong spine of GI metal framework with plasterboard as its face. The metal framework gives the system its strength, long life and enhanced performance. Any compromise on the quality of the metal components can lead to permanent system failure.
The Gypsteel ULTRA® advantage
Gypsteel ULTRA® metal components and accessories come with the assurance of quality from Gyproc. Gypsteel ULTRA® is manufactured through a cold rolled pre-forming process that locally work-hardens the base material, and provides great strength to the false ceiling and drywall systems.
Gypsteel ULTRA® is made of special high-performance steel that undergoes stringent quality checks and controls to ensure correct and consistent base material for further profiling. The steel comes in rolled coils to maintain the proper thickness throughout its length. Quality checks ensure correct selection of material for strength and corrosion resistance. The steel sheet is work-hardened by passing it through a teethed roller with a patented design from Hadley which gives a typical unique knurling pattern on the surface. This knurling pattern is a key identifier of genuine Gypsteel ULTRA® from Gyproc.
Advantages of Gypsteel ULTRA®
Gypsteel ULTRA® advantages include:
- Increased load carrying capacity of as high as 36%
- Improved screw retention of 17% and increased spring tension of 30%.
- The unique knurling design improves sound insulation by 10% and fire resistance by 33%.
- Faster, safer and easier to install and cut
- Increased friction fitting
- No screw stripping or screw riding
- Sight lines on flanges for more precise joints
- Improved productivity and quality
- Tighter stud to track friction fitting
- Improved safety by reducing sharp edges and lips
Metal Frames Partitions
Different Types Of Metal Partitions
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.
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.
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.
