Metal framing are integral part of drywalls or partition & serves as a backbone for the drywalls & partition. They are responsible for taking the load of the system on them and a good quality metal framing will ensure that the drywalls and partitions are long lasting.
Gyproc Metal frames are made from Galvanized Iron (G.I.) which cannot burn. The drywalls can be designed for fire resistance upto 4 hrs and metal framings play an important and pivotal role in the same. Use of wood/timber or Aluminum metal frames cant give fire rated drywalls as wood/timber burns and alumiunum melts very easily as compared to GI.
Gyproc metal sections are made from GI bought from only reputed steel manufacturers. Gyproc metal products undergo stringent quality checks to ensure outstanding & consistent quality to customers. Some of our metal forming processes are patented which ensure that we can giving best value to our customers.
Yes you can load kitchen cabinets, TV, AC units and other domestic stuff on metal frames of the drywalls. Just ensure that the fixings which you are using to put them on drywalls are penetrated in the metal frames (studs).
GI studs provide better sound insulation, better fire protection and long lasting drywalls as compared to Aluminium framing. There are other advantages like better cost, better & faster workability associated with GI studs as well. In all, GI studs are much better than using aluminum based studs for partitions / drywalls.
The metal framing / studs are protected with Zn coating or Alu-Zinc coating of various thicknesses. Its important to check the coating thickness before deciding to buy metal framing. If we opt for branded metal framings like Gyproc, then we ensure that our metal frames are coated with proper Zinc or Alu-Zinc coating so that they provide superior corrosion protection and last long. In fact, with GypSerra, Gyproc offers superior products in terms of corrosion protection to market.
