- Flush jointed ceiling systems use strong Gyprock plasterboard sheets affixed to well-prepared framing. The plasterboard joints are all taped and set well to form seamless flush-jointed, continuous ceilings, ideal for painting. There are different varieties of Gyprock sheets available and the application and setting will decide which one works best for you.
- Some products are specifically recommended for plasterboard lining for ceilings. They have specially designed cores that give them improved sag resistance; this aspect is vital when installing on any 600mm joist centres.
- If you are looking to soundproof a room, the Gyprock Soundcheck plasterboard is the perfect solution, it is a high-density board with a recessed edge. Its 10mm thickness works best for acoustic ceilings.
- You can also opt for plasterboard that is made of recycled content. These sheets have a heavy-duty facing material and a denser core as well. This is an environmentally friendly option and ideal if you are looking for eco-friendly building products for your home or commercial establishment. This board also has very good acoustic properties, making them ideal for sound recording studios or entertainment room ceilings.
- Gypsum plasterboard is resistant to humidity and moisture and has a special back treatment, with a strong dense core. While you can use standard plasterboard in wet areas, it’s better to choose this humidity resistant board in rooms that have higher moisture levels.
- There is also a Gyprock Sensitive product that is specially treated with an anti-fungal agent. This gives it a very high level of mould-resistance not just in its liner paper, but in the core as well. This board is also moisture and humidity resistant.
Different Types of Gyprock Solutions for Residential Ceilings
Sagging ceilings can mar the appearance of various rooms in your home. The high humidity levels experienced in many parts of the country can cause standard plasterboard ceilings to show early signs of wear like sagging. This is especially evident as most installations now have wider spacing. The improper installation use of heavy insulating systems, downlighting fixtures, and ceiling materials can have this very same impact. The one way to ensure that this doesn’t happen to your ceilings is to get a Gyprock ceiling installed by experts like the ones at Sydney Wide Plastering. Here is some more information about these ceilings and why they are a good choice against other standard materials available on the market today. We are the experienced and expert Sydney Plasterer that can provide excellent services to both, residential and commercial clients.
