Plasterboard systems

Plasterboard non-load-bearing internal walls may be constructed using proprietary metal stud systems or as traditional timber stud walls. Where appropriate, acoustic insulation should be inserted within the void spaces. Dry-lining to masonry may be fixed with dabs of adhesive, alternatively with metal or timber framing. Plasterboard suspended ceiling systems are usually supported on a lightweight steel framework fixed directly to either concrete or timber. Convex and concave surfaces can be achieved. Sound transmission through existing upper-storey timber-joist floors can be reduced by a combination of resiliently mounted plasterboard and mineral wool insulation.
