Standard Wallboards with normal structural, fire and acoustic levels

Unless otherwise specified on working drawings/plans or by your local Building Control office, Standard Wallboard is the choice to make. As they are the most popular board and are mass-produced, they are also the least expensive to buy.

Multiple choices

With Standard Wallboard being such a widely used board, they can be purchased in a vast range of sheet size and thickness combinations both in square and tapered edge. We have all the most commonly stocked sizes listed. Don’t worry though if you need one of the larger boards such as a 3600 x 1200mm, please get in touch and we’ll be happy to discuss the different size options and prices.

Where and how to use them

These standard plasterboard sheets can be used for walls and ceilings.

Walls

If fixing to masonry walls, be it internal or external the usual method is to ‘dot and dab’. This means using a suitable Dri-Wall Adhesive or Bonding Compound which the boards then adhere to, keeping them firmly in place. They can also be mechanically fixed to timber battens that would be fitted to external walls.

Standard Wallboards can also be mechanically fixed to timber stud partitions, metal stud partitions or metal wall lining systems.

Ceilings

If fixing to ceilings, mechanical fitting is the way to go. This should be done by using clout nails or drywall screws. They can be fixed to either timber joists and rafters or the metal MF ceiling system.

Finishing

Once in situ, they are ready for either direct decorating, providing the correct jointing and sealing procedures have been followed or ‘skimmed’ with a suitable plaster finish such as Thistle Board Finish or Thistle Multi Finish.
