Plasterboard is the most widely used wall and ceiling lining material in Australia. It is composed of a gypsum core encased in a heavy – duty liner board which is folded around the long edges to reinforce and protect the core.
For domestic use, long edges are recessed to assist in producing a smooth, even and continuous surface once jointed. Generally in 1200mm and 1350mm widths, plasterboard is available in a variety of lengths from 2400mm up to 6000mm, in 10mm and 13mm thicknesses, although there are some ‘special applic ation’ products that are 6.5mm, 16mm and 25mm thick.
As well as plasterboard for general applications there are also boards specifically manufactured for water resistance, fire resistance, acoustic resistance, flexibility and long span applications.
It is advisable to confer withy our local building authority before beginning any major plasterboard projects.
