Saint-Gobain gypsum false ceiling specification


Saint-Gobain's metal frames are made from high-quality steels with 120 to 150 GSM Zinc coating and high-pressure knurling or serration processes, which makes the metal frames more load-bearing capacity and longer resistance against rust and corrosion.

There are three varieties of metal frames available in India from Saint-Gobain Gyproc® for plasterboard false ceilings. Those are known as Gypframe® Xpert, Gypsteel ULTRA®, and GypSerra™. The Gypframe® Xpert metal frame is recommended for small spaces, while Gypsteel ULTRA® and GypSerra™ are highly recommended for large spaces where require more strength and load-bearing capacity.

This post contains information about the Gyproc® plasterboard false ceiling materials specification and the recommended installation procedure of Gyproc® plasterboard false ceilings as well. Please note that the information provided here is based on the Gyproc® false ceiling products available in India. If you are living outside of India, you may have to contact the Gyproc® customer care to know the accurate specifications about Gyproc® false ceiling products available in your country.

Gyproc® Ceiling Installation

  • Ceiling Angle: To be suspended at max 4' centers using Gyproc® Rawl Plug and Gyproc® Soffit Cleats with Gyproc® M6 Bolt Nut.
  • Perimeter Channel: To be fixed to the walls with the water level at a max distance of 1.5'/screw using 35mm long metal wood screws with nylon sleeves.
  • Intermediate Channel: To be connected to the Ceiling Angle at max 4' distance using Gyproc® Metal to Metal Screws.
  • Ceiling Section: Should be connected underneath of Intermediate Channels in cross direction at max 1.5' distance using Gyproc® Connecting Clip.
  • Plasterboard: To be fixed to the Ceiling Sections in the staggered layout using Gyproc® corrosion resistance Drywall Screws.
  • Joint Finish: Gyproc recommends applying three to four coats of joint putty in wider than 450 mm on the final coat. But we recommend one or two coats in the same breadth of the tapered edge joints with fiber tape to retain maximum plasterboard surfaces, which help the painters to apply the full surface putty evenly without spoiling the true surface of the plasterboards. And we highly recommend two coats of Asianpaints trucare® interior wall putty with <1 mm layer thick in a cross-directional way for better surface preparation.
