Plasterboards have come a long way since the U.S. Gypsum company (USG) invented the drywall in 1916. Initially the material was introduced as fireproof tiles, and after several years it evolved into multi-layer gypsum and paper sheets. Soon after, it became the plasterboard form as we know it today.
Nowadays, innovation in the plasterboard systems has advanced to include many useful attributes which are also designed to meet Australian building standards. Previously, we introduced the various types of plasterboards which can be fire, sound, or moisture resistant. However, it is not uncommon for commercial projects to require the installation of plasterboards with more than one feature. The solution to this is a multi-attribute plasterboard – the next generation of a high performing product to suit individual building projects.
The multi-attribute plasterboard is a tiered system, which allows businesses to select from a range of plasterboards to suit their needs and tailor specific attributes that are required. This offers a great deal of flexibility while providing better value for money.
For example, the USG’s range of Multi-Stop plasterboards allow different industries to select the attributes required for various purposes, each line also has a high-impact option equipped with additional materials such as an embedded mesh to handle heavy traffic and to offer extra toughness and durability.
