Plasterboard

Plasterboard, often referred to as drywall, is made up of two layers that are wedged together with gypsum. Plasterboard is a popular choice due to how lightweight and affordable it is.

Modern plasterboards are suitable for use in a wide variety of projects, including:

  • To control moisture: Ideal for use in areas that are likely to experience moisture such as steam on a regular basis. For example, bathrooms, kitchens, etc. This is because we can specifically offer moisture-resistant plasterboard, which essentially will not absorb any moisture at all.
  • Thermal heating in buildings: Often used in buildings with solid walls that have not been built with the same amount of insulation as cavity walls.
  • Restricting sound: We offer soundproof plasterboard, as they have a higher density and can be used as part of a larger soundproofing system, which will ultimately help reduce noise transmissions through the ceilings.
  • Fire resistance: Their sole purpose is to help increase the fire resistance of the area. Fire resistant plasterboards are manufactured from a variety of materials, including fire-resistant fillers and fibres.
  • Soundproofing: Acoustic plasterboard is a great product designed for use in ceiling and wall lining. They offer higher sound insulation by absorbing and blocking soundwaves.

Plasterboards are designed to provide durability with a high-quality lining for walls and ceilings, as well as lift shafts and stairwells, and corridors and auditoria.

Our range of plasterboard products also includes coving, which is a strip-type of moulding that is typically used decoratively. Coving has a smooth surface and can be used to hide the join between the different coloured wall and ceiling, adding character to your rooms.
