New Lighter Wallboard from Gyproc

Gyproc recently announced the updating of its standard plasterboard to be 10% lighter while retaining its existing performance and strength capabilities.

The lighter standard plasterboard has additional strength and flexibility, the company says, while also giving a cleaner score and snap on-site.

The lighter standard plasterboard has successfully passed all the necessary building regulation and systems tests and performs to the same levels as the company’s current standard plasterboard, Gyproc has stated.

With roughly a 10% weight saving, the lighter weight standard plasterboard is nearly 3kg lighter on an 8×4 plasterboard.
