What is a Drywall?
A drywall is a high performance lightweight interior wall system consisting of a GI steel frame, encased in gypsum plasterboards on either side attached with self-drilling drywall screws. The joints are then taped and finished with gypsum jointing compounds.
Drywalls can be used to partition any interior and are the preferred choice of construction for a range of applications, in homes, hotels, hospitals, schools, theatres, and industry. They are strong and robust (drywalls of up to 15 metres high have been built) and can typically last the lifetime of a building unless they are subjected to abuse or alteration.
J.W. Marriott is a 5 star luxury hotel with 550 rooms located just outside the T3 airport terminal in New Delhi. The key requirement for this project was a system which would help in constructing the project faster, with walls that delivered high performance in terms of acoustics and fire rating.
