Plasterboard and Accessories


Plasterboard, often referred to as drywall or gypsum board, is a widely used building material in interior construction. It consists of a core of gypsum sandwiched between two layers of paper or fibreglass. This composition gives plasterboard its characteristic properties of being lightweight, fire-resistant, sound-insulating, and easy to work with.


  1. Composition: The core of plasterboard is made from gypsum, a naturally occurring mineral. Gypsum is mixed with additives to enhance its properties, such as improving fire resistance or reducing water absorption.
  2. Types: Plasterboard comes in various types and thicknesses, each designed for specific applications.
  3. Installation: Plasterboard is installed on interior walls and ceilings using screws or nails, typically attached to wooden or metal framing.


  1. Metal Studs and Tracks: Metal studs and tracks are used to create the framework onto which the plasterboard is attached. They provide structural support and stability, especially in partition walls and suspended ceilings.
  2. Jointing Compound and Tape: The Jointing compound is used to fill and smooth joints between plasterboard sheets, creating a seamless surface.
  3. Corner Beads: Corner beads are metal or plastic profiles used to reinforce and protect the external corners of plasterboard walls. They ensure sharp, clean corners that are resistant to damage and wear.
