What is drywall?

Gypsum board consists of panels of pressed gypsum material, which is sandwiched between two hard papers. It is a very practical building material that is used in so-called dry construction. It is often used for ceilings, non-load-bearing walls and other interior modifications. Plasterboard is light, easy to work with and also cheaper than other materials. Gypsum board is produced in different thicknesses and lengths, with different compositions of gypsum core. This diversity makes it possible to always choose the right size and quality of plasterboard for a specific building structure.

What is plasterboard used for?

Plasterboard is an essential element of dry construction. It is used in the construction of various partitions, hanging walls, niches, ceilings, in the division of rooms, or in the reconstruction of attics. It is usually not used in load-bearing walls, therefore it is mounted mainly on steel structural profiles. However, there are also special load-bearing applications for plasterboard.

What is needed to work with plasterboard?

• construction profiles • screws and accessories for dry construction • insulation • jointing compounds for dry construction • penetration • tiles • breaking knife • silicones and sealants • waterproofing • colors and wallpapers

What are the advantages and disadvantages of drywall?

Plasterboard is popular for the implementation of building and interior design elements, thanks to the fact that it saves time and costs for construction or renovation. It insulates well with heat and sound, is impermeable to steam and is odorless. Plasterboard is easy to process and has a low weight, so it represents a small static load on objects. It is not difficult to transport, it allows for quick assembly and a dry process, so no water is needed on the construction site. Because it is a simple modular system, it is possible to solve the installation of distribution systems such as electricity, water, etc. at the same time. Interior partitions made of plasterboard are almost perfectly straight, but it allows further surface treatment with various coatings, wallpapers, tiles or plasters. • work with it is very simple • Easy to install, shape and finish • has good thermal and sound insulation properties • is resistant to moisture and fire (depending on type) • has a long service life The disadvantage is the need to fasten the boards to the structural profiles, the need for penetration, sealing and grinding of holes in the board, to complete perfection.

How to work with plasterboard?

A break-off knife or a tail saw is required to work with plasterboard. On the holes of the deceased. Plasterboard is mounted on a pre-prepared steel structure. The joints between the boards are sealed with sealant and reinforcing tape. After careful sealing and grinding of the joints, the boards must be finally adjusted. Prior to painting or wallpapering, the plasterboard must be well penetrated so that the paint or wallpaper adheres and thus balances the absorbency of the entire surface. It is also possible to apply a thin layer of plaster on plasterboard.

What can be built from plasterboard?

Dry plasterboard floor

Floating floors made of gypsum fiber boards consist of a rigid assembled floorboard separated from the substructure by an intermediate layer of dry underlay, or polystyrene or mineral insulation. Due to the low weight and dry construction process, plasterboard floors are suitable, for example, for the reconstruction of attics. This type of floor works as an effective sound insulation and step insulation of the floor and is suitable for underfloor heating.

Plasterboard walls and partitions

Drywall construction of dry interior construction is suitable for the installation of partitions, for wall cladding and for the construction of soundproof walls. The construction of the partitions serves primarily to divide the interiors into individual rooms, but also to guide the necessary installations, and when using acoustic plasterboard to improve the acoustic comfort of the interior.

Suspended plasterboard walls

Suspended walls have a wide range of uses, from aesthetic improvement of existing surfaces, increasing the values ​​of thermal insulation properties and soundproofing of walls, to the creation of an intermediate space for conducting installations during reconstructions, e.g. in prefabricated houses.

Partitions to humid environments

Impregnated plasterboard is suitable for bathroom reconstruction or replacement of an unsuitable housing core in prefabricated houses. The plasterboard construction does not load the load-bearing structure more than the original housing core. In addition, the new bathroom wall will be built very quickly if the correct installation procedures are followed.

Residence of the attic

Plasterboard allows additional insulation of the building and at the same time the creation of new spaces for comfortable and attractive living without increasing the built-up area. Thanks to plasterboard, quality insulation and skylights, you can create a very cozy and functional living space in the attic.

Ceilings

Plasterboard ceilings are suitable for fast and clean cladding of ceilings. By using them, it is possible to improve the sound properties of the room and, in the case of thermal insulation, also the thermal properties of the ceiling structure.

What are the common types of drywall?

White plasterboard

Ordinary (designation GKB, RB, A) White plasterboard is the cheapest and most frequently used variant. It is used for cladding partitions and ceilings and other structures without fire requirements. White plasterboard is used in interiors with a relative humidity of less than 65% at a temperature of 20 ° C. Therefore, it is not suitable for use in places where it could come into contact with water or moisture.

Green plasterboard

Impregnated (designation GKBi, RBi, H2) Green plasterboard is impregnated against moisture. It is designed for use in humid environments, in bathrooms, showers, kitchens, etc. It is heavier, has a higher load capacity and is more expensive than white plasterboard. Impregnated gypsum boards are used in areas with humidity up to 75% or 85% for more than 10 hours. With 100% humidity for less than 2 hours for 24 hours at 20 ° C.

Red plasterboard

Fire-fighting (designation GKF, RF, DF) Red plasterboard has a high fire protection finish. Fireproof gypsum plasterboards are used in dry areas with a constant relative humidity of less than 65% at a temperature of 20 ° C with the required fire resistance of the building or as protection of steel structures against fire. It has increased core strength and therefore can withstand high temperatures. It is also suitable as noise insulation.

Blue plasterboard

Acoustic Blue plasterboard is specially made as sound insulation. The acoustic gypsum board has a specially adjusted core density, which consists of a modified gypsum crystal structure with specific damping properties. Therefore, it is suitable for soundproofing the outside, the walls between apartments in a block of flats or apartment building and in the apartment between individual rooms.
