Gyptone Flexible Plasterboard

Gyptone  Flexible PlasterboardCSR Gyprock has recently extended its perforated plasterboard range with the launch of two new Gyptone profiles for curved ceilings – Gyptone Flexible 12 millimetres Square and Gyptone Flexible Slotted Minigrid. The Gyprock range of perforated plasterboard allows architects and designers to create ceilings and walls with a balance of aesthetics and functionality.

Manufactured for design versatility, both Gyptone Flexible boards allow architects, specifiers and design professionals the ability to create impressive spaces with curved ceilings – all whilst achieving a comfortable environment with excellent acoustic performance.

Gyptone Flexible perforated plasterboard is installed in one layer and can be dry curved to a radius of 2.2 metres. Gyptone Flexible 12 millimetre Square plasterboard consists of eight large square groupings per sheet, each with 400 millimetre x 12 millimetre square perforations at 25 millimetre centres. Gyptone Flexible Slotted Minigrid plasterboard features eight large square groupings per sheet, each with 16 mini grids of six millimetre x 80 millimetre slot perforations.

Both plasterboard profiles feature a highly effective black acoustic fabric backing that improves the acoustics of the ceiling. This unique fabric is exclusive to Gyprock and also provides other benefits such as eliminating dust from ceiling cavities and effectively masking the ceiling framework, so that it is not seen from below through the perforations.

Activ’Air is also an important feature within the Gyptone Flexible range. Activ’Air was developed by worldwide plasterboard specialist, Saint-Gobain, and is a patented technology that converts formaldehyde into non-harmful inert compounds that are permanently locked in the board and cannot be released back into the air. This technology is available to the Australian market thanks to Gyprock’s International Alliance program.

Additionally, Gyprock has also launched the Kimberley Alustar Flush access panel option within the Rigitone perforated plasterboard range. Access panels are integrated into suspended ceilings to allow for inspection, service and maintenance work on the installations in the space above.

Available in a number of sizes to suit various access applications, the Rigitone Kimberley Alustar Flush access panel offers easy entry that is barely perceptible in a continuous perforated ceiling pattern.
