What Is Plasterboard?

Plasterboard or drywall is a panel made of calcium sulfate dihydrate (also known as gypsum) with or without additives and normally pressed between a facer and a backer. It is used to make interior walls and ceilings. This material is very versatile and comes in a wide range of options.

It's ideal for use in both commercial and residential projects as in addition to the versatility; it's also very easily painted and it's much quicker to use compared to the traditional alternative of Lath and Plaster. In addition of providing the drywall construction, the plasterboard also helps builders and designers meet regulations with regards to fire, acoustics, and thermal efficiency. In the case of this particular plasterboard, it complies with BS1230 Type 5 and BS EN 520 Types D and F.

Plasterboard can be used in a diverse range of different applications. Primarily it's used for wall partitions and ceilings. This includes a variety of different buildings including hospitals, shops, schools, and residential properties. There are numerous benefits to using plasterboard in construction. In addition to the smooth appearance, it's also exceptionally lightweight and very easy to install, being quickly fixed to either a metal or a timber frame.

Also, with regards to environmental sustainability, it's important to note that plasterboard is a very environmentally friendly option. Whilst it cannot be disposed of through general waste methods, it can be fully recycled, which means that no plasterboard waste should be sent to landfill.

What Does 60 Minutes Of Fire Resistance Mean?

In the event of a fire this material has been graded to withstand the fire for a total of 60 minutes. This means that it could help to delay the spread of a fire, helping to minimise and mitigate damage, provide people inside the building time to escape, and it also helps to maintain structural integrity during a fire, which provides emergency services more time to control the outbreak of the fire itself.

This method of fire protection is known as passive fire protection, as the physical structure itself provides a method of fire protection. Unlike active fire protection such as a sprinkler system or fire extinguishers, the passive protection provided by fire resistant plasterboard doesn't require any action on your part; it provides its fire protection simply by being installed, providing peace of mind and reassurance for residents/employees/visitors/guests.

What Other Plasterboard Materials Are Available?

In addition to the fire resistant plasterboard panels available from our online store, you can also browse through a variety of different drywall panels. This includes both square edge and tapered edge boards, alongside other specialised panels such as moisture resistant plasterboard and sound block plasterboard.
