Gyproc – Saint Gobain – Ceiling & Wall Solutions :
Metal Frames and Accessories
Gyproc false ceilings and drywalls are lightweight and easy to install. Besides enhancing the beauty of any interior space, they also provide better acoustics, fire protection and thermal insulation. They are 100% recyclable.
A drywall or false ceiling system has a strong spine of GI metal framework with plasterboard as its face. The metal framework gives the system its strength, long life and enhanced performance. Any compromise on the quality of the metal components can lead to permanent system failure.
The Gypsteel ULTRA advantage
Gypsteel ULTRA metal components and accessories come with the assurance of quality from Gyproc. Gypsteel ULTRA is manufactured through a cold rolled pre-forming process that locally work-hardens the base material, and provides great strength to the false ceiling and drywall systems.
Gypsteel ULTRA is made of special high-performance steel that undergoes stringent quality checks and controls to ensure correct and consistent base material for further profiling. The steel comes in rolled coils to maintain the proper thickness throughout its length. Quality checks ensure correct selection of material for strength and corrosion resistance. The steel sheet is work-hardened by passing it through a teethed roller with a patented design from Hadley which gives a typical unique knurling pattern on the surface. This knurling pattern is a key identifier of genuine Gypsteel ULTRA from Gyproc.
Advantages and benefits of Gypsteel ULTRA
