Gyprock plasterboard is a common building material used for interior walls and ceilings. It's made from gypsum, which is the mineral form of calcium sulfate. This mineral naturally occurs in the Earth's crust and can be mined, processed and manufactured into plasterboard.
Gyprock plasterboard is commonly used as a building material because it is strong, lightweight and easy to install. There are several safety benefits associated with using this product, as described below.
1. Gyprock Plasterboard Is Fire-Resistant
Gyprock plasterboard is non-combustible and fire-resistant. This means it cannot catch fire or burn easily. This makes it ideal for use in homes where there are children or pets who may accidentally start fires while playing with matches. Plasterboard is also used as a fire retardant material in commercial buildings and public spaces such as schools, offices and hospitals where there is a high risk of fire and a need for safety precautions.
The gypsum particles in the board will melt when exposed to extreme heat, which prevents the fire from spreading through the walls and ceilings of your home or office building.
2. Gyprock Plasterboard Is Moisture Proof
Plasterboard does not absorb water, so it doesn't hold moisture either. This allows you to paint on it without worrying about peeling off or cracking because the moisture content inside the wall has increased significantly over time due to excess moisture exposure during painting operations. This also makes gyprock plasterboard an excellent choice for bathroom or kitchen walls where water splashes are common due to inadequate plumbing systems or faulty taps/showers that leak whenever they're turned on, resulting in damp patches on your walls after some time and eventually causing damage.
3. Gyprock Plasterboard Is Strong And Durable
Gyprock plasterboard is made from gypsum (a naturally occurring mineral) mixed with water and limes. This combination creates a material that's strong enough to support your home and flexible enough to fit around obstacles like pipes and wiring. Gyprock plasterboard is also very durable, which means it will last for many years without crumbling or decaying. It won't absorb moisture like regular plaster, so you don't have to worry about cracks forming on your walls due to damp conditions.
4. Gyprock Plasterboard Is Soundproof And Can Protect Your Hearing
Gyprock plasterboard is a great soundproofing material. It's made from gypsum and limes, which absorb noise and vibrations. This makes it perfect for use in homes where there are lots of noisy kids, pets or appliances. Gyprock plasterboard can also help to protect your hearing if you work on building sites or in factories.
Gyprock plasterboard is a highly versatile building material that can be used to cover walls, ceilings and floors. It's also an excellent fire retardant and a great solution for soundproofing. To find out more about the benefits of gyprock, chat with a service member today.Share
