Metal Framings are an integral part of the drywall or
ceiling system and serve as a
backbone for them.

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.

Apart from being the backbone, metals add value to the systems in many ways:

Fire Safety
Acoustic Comfort
Technical Excellence
Uniqueness & Design
Metal Framing Accessories for False ceiling & drywalls

Fire performance of Drywall / ceiling depends on

  • Stability
  • Integrity

Metal framings contribute positively

fire resistant meta framing
  • Ensuring that the system does not collapse till the performance requirements
  • Ensuring that the system remains integrated and does not allow passage of heat or gases
  • Help the compartmentalization remain intact

Metal Framings contribute positively
by Helping in Mass-Spring-Mass

Ensuring that the drywall system remains “Plumb” &
is not deflected due to self weight, load or impact

Lateral Deflection = L/240, L is height of partition

Partition Stiffness (EI) = Metal Frame Stiffness + Board Stiffness

Why to prefer GI over other metals

Parameter Why it is important What affects if How GI is better
Strength of sections Attributes to strength of drywall, Attributes to screw retention Density (kg/m3) GI: 8050; Al: 2700; Young’s Modulus (GPa) GI: 205, Al:70 Higher density: Higher strength & Higher screw retention Higher Young’s modulus: better stiffness
Fire Performance Helps in thermal efficiency & fire rating Thermal Conductivity (W/mK) GI: 50; Al:200 Melting Point (0C): GI: 1500; Al: 650 Lower the thermal conductivity, Higher melting point ; better fire rating
Screw Retention Attributes to loadability & cyclic loading Stiffness, Malleability GI is stiffer and has lower malleability than Al, hence has better screw retention & cyclic loading
Cost to strength Cost To match strength provided by G.I. more Aluminum to be used resulting in higher material cost. G.I. is better than Aluminum
