Gypboard® Plain is standard gypsum boards used in Drywall, False ceiling & Drylining application to form seamless surface.
Drywall is 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. Gypsum boards are part of drywall.
Gypboard® Plain is for dry application. We offer Moisture Resistant (Gyproc Moisture Reistant) & Water Resistant (Gyproc Glasroc H) Gypsum Boards for wet area walls & ceilings
Fire Resistance is performance parameter of entire wall or ceiling system. However, Gypsum boards by its chemistry (inherent water molecules) are fire retardant & Gypboard® plain is Class 1 material as per BS 476 Part7.
For Requirement More than 60 minutes fire rating we recommend Gyproc Fireline Board.
Painting, fixing wall paper, laminate, veneer etc. is possible on Gypsum board surface.
