At 1350mm wide, GIB Wideline® is the ideal product for horizontal fixing on 2.7m studs. This means fewer joints and a better finish. Improvements were made to the product in 2010 making it lighter (which reduces handling effort on site) and stronger (more rigid with less sag) and more flexible (improved manoeuvrability with less risk of damage and wastage). The strengthened paper means better bedding of screw heads, cleaner cut and snap for a better edge, resulting in a consistent quality surface finish.
GIB® plasterboard is made up of naturally occurring gypsum, 100% recycled paper, and a small quantity of other ingredients (which includes approved glues and additives required to improve the quality of the finished board).
GIB® plasterboard should be installed in accordance with best practice guidelines as outlined in GIB® literature.
