Exterior Sheathing

Exterior Gypsum Sheathing is a proven commercial underlayment applied to the outside surface of a structure’s framing members before the installation of exterior wall cladding materials. It is designed to help the wall assembly resist air and water infiltration, mold growth, noise transmission and flame spread. more

OTHER APPLICATIONS   |     Exterior Soffit     Ceilings for Porches & Overhangs

Abuse-Resistant Panels

Abuse-Resistant Gypsum Panels are a tougher, more durable version of traditional drywall designed to minimize cosmetic maintenance costs and repairs to walls in high traffic areas due to surface scuffs, abrasions and indentations. These panels are an excellent life-cycle facility performance design solution. more

OTHER APPLICATIONS   |     Interior Ceilings

Impact-Resistant Panels

Impact-Resistant Gypsum Panels are designed to withstand the scrapes, bumps and collisions that can occur in environments with an elevated risk of occupant, equipment or transported object impacts. Heavyweight facers and a reinforced core provide enhanced protection against surface damage and penetration. more

OTHER APPLICATIONS   |     Interior Ceilings

Shaftliner Panels

Gypsum Shaftliner Panels simplify the construction of fire-resistant elevator shafts, stairwells and mechanical chases to maximize occupant safety while providing vital occupant access and utility distribution. Gypsum Shaftliner Panels provide a lightweight, time- and cost-efficient alternative to masonry construction. more

OTHER APPLICATIONS   |     Area Separation Walls

Mold/Moisture-Resistant Panels

Mold/Moisture-Resistant Gypsum Panels provide enhanced wall and ceiling protection against the damaging effects of moisture and humidity as well as the development of mold and mildew in applications where periodic liquid and/or vapor exposure is a design consideration.more

OTHER APPLICATIONS   |     Interior Ceilings

Improving Sound Control With Gypsum Board

Managing noise transmission in a structure is a vital design consideration. As a component part of many different wall and floor/ceiling assemblies, gypsum panel products can contribute to a solution. Learn about basic sound-control concepts, noise-attenuation strategies, STC comparisons and sample assemblies.more

Special Performance – Gypsum Board Has Come A Long Way

From its initial introduction in the 1890’s to mainstream usage by the 1950’s, gypsum wallboard has become the primary interior partition covering and finishing surface for both residential and commercial construction. In the process, this cost-efficient, easy-to-install building material has experienced continuous development and enhancement with features like improved fire-resistance, increased surface durability, extended weatherability, and an ever-widening list of application-specific, specialty performance characteristics. Today, gypsum wallboard is a component part of both interior and exterior architectural solutions throughout a well-designed structure.
