Size of Plasterboard?

The size of your Plasterboard is an essential consideration when looking to achieve the best results from your dry lining project. Because of the versatility Plasterboards provide, they can be used for a wide variety of construction applications. There are two standard thicknesses of plasterboard – 9.5 mm and 12.5 mm.

Ceiling Plasterboard – 9.5mm or 10m. People assume that they must use thicker plaster, but that is actually not true. Thicker plasterboard will stick harder to the ceiling and will be difficult to seal joints if needed.

Wall Plasterboard – 12.5mm or 13mm. Because of its qualities in reducing sound, you can use it in bedrooms, nurseries or home offices. For a house, we suggest that 12.5mm will be sufficient enough for your plasterboard needs. Commercial projects will typically use a 13cm plasterboard in areas where noise transfer is a concern, such as offices, meeting rooms, hotels, etc.

The Mick George Group have a huge range of different plasterboard options to choose from dependant on the size and scale of your project.

Different Types Of Plasterboard

There are different types of plasterboard, and each one has a different characteristic and is suitable for different situations. Luckily, The Mick George Group have you covered with a huge array of different types of Plasterboards available online now.

Wall Plasterboard – This is suitable for most applications where normal sound levels, structural properties and fire specifications are found. Normal wallboard can be fixed at a double thickness to give greater resistance with fire and sound levels.

Insulating Plasterboard This plasterboard is similar to common wallboard. It’s made of gypsum as well, but it has insulating foam on its front side. This makes it a great thermal insulator.

Acoustic Plasterboard This type of board has a higher density core providing a good level of sound insulation. It is effective on thin walls and ceilings making it very useful in blocks of flats.

Fireboards – Fireboard is fire resistant plasterboard. It has glass fibre in its core. It’s commonly used for building walls between houses and garages. It’s able to resist fire in most domestic situations. The fire board is usually pink and can be painted and plastered.

Water Resistant Boards – This type of board features water repellent additives in the core making them suitable for a base for tiling some wet areas. This type of plasterboard usually comes with a green face and is not usually plastered.

Plasterboard is an important part of the interior construction of most buildings, so its important that you choose the right type of plasterboard along with the right size of plasterboard as well.
