Metacil ceiling SystemAdvantage of Gypsum Board Ease of installation : Gypsum board building system are easy to install for several reasons. Gypsum board panels are relatively large compared to other materials. They come in 48- and 54- inch wide sheets and in lengths of 9, 10, 12 feet, so they quickly cover large wall and ceiling areas. Gypsum board assemblies require only a few tools for their construction. Gypsum board can be cut with eitherr a utility knife or a variety of saws, and it can be attached with a variety of fasteners, including screws, nails and staples.
Fire resistance :
Gypsum board is an excellent fire-resistive building material. It is the most commonly used interior finish where fire resistance classifications are required. Its noncombustible core contains nearly 21% chemically combined water, as described earlier, which, under high heart, is slowly released as steam. Because steam will not exceed 212 digress F under normal atmospheric pressure, it very effectively retards the transfer of heat and the spread of fire. Even after complete calcination, when all the water has been released from its core, gypsum board continues to save as a heat-insulation barrier.
Sound isolation : Preventing the transfer of unwanted sound to adjoining areas is a key consideration when designing a building, specifically when taking into account the intended activities of the occupants in the various parts of the building.
Gypsum board is used to construct strong, high quality walls and ceilings that offer excellent dimensional stability and durability. surfaces created using gypsum board are easily decorated and refinished.
Gypsum board is readily available and easy to apply. It is an inexpensive wall surfacing material that provides a fire resistance interior finish. Gypsum board building systems can generally be installed at significantly lower labor costs that most alternative systems.
Gypsum board satisfies a wide range of architectural requirements for design. Ease of application, performance, ease of repair, availability, and its adaptability to all forms of decoration combine to make gypsum board unmatched by any other surfacing product.
