Plasterboard Works

We supply and fit the complete range of Gypsum Industries specialist plasterboards including the following:-

  • Plain plasterboard
  • Foilbacked plasterboard (backed with a vapour control membrane)
  • Fireline plasterboard (to give enhanced fire protection
  • Moisture Resistant plasterboard (suitable for wet use areas)
  • Duraline plasterboard (to give a greater impact resistance
  • SoundBloc plasterboard (to give greater levels of sound insulation)
Metal Stud Partitions

Metal stud partitions are non-loadbearing internal partitions suitable for all types of housing, commercial and retail developments. These can be constructed to a height of 7.90m and are single or doubled boarded each side with a plasterboard type to suit any individual requirement. These can be installed to suit particular arrangements and can include faceted or curved layouts. In addition these can be combined with a range of insulations to enhance their acoustic and thermal qualities.

Wall Linings

Blockwork walls can be lined with either a metal top hat section or Gypliner system to enable plasterboard to be fixed directly to them. As an alternative to traditional plastering, this system allows for a much quicker installation time as it is a completely dry system.


All of the above can be finished using taping and jointing which achieves a totally dry construction system, eliminating the equivalent plaster drying time and the potential of subsequent cracking in the surface finish. Please see the associated section on taping and jointing.

MF / Grid Ceilings in the West of Ireland

These can be constructed purely in an aesthetic context to create dropped levels in ceilings, to create curved features or other specific design concepts such as coffers. An MF ceiling is where plasterboard is fixed to a concealed metal grid which is in turn then fixed to a structural soffit above. There are many different tile types and styles available to suit each development and advice can be given in respect of these.


Insulation in the West of Ireland

Termex insulation materials are manufactured from clean newspaper where vegetable-oil-based natural pigments have been used for ink. These can be used in metal stud partitions, above MF or grid ceilings or between joists, purlines and rafters in domestic houses. We will be pleased to advise with regard to the suitability and applicability of the differing insulation types.


Taping And Jointing in the West of Ireland

The jointing process has three application stages - bedding the tape and bulk filling the joint, secondary filling to take up shrinkage and then final finish. Taping and jointing produces a smooth, continuous, crack free surface ready for final decoration.


Eurobead in the West of Ireland

When Eurobead is installed on new build dwellings it is completed prior to internal plastering and on existing dwellings can be carried out at any time. The bead is coated in an air drying adhesive which enables the bead to flow freely through the cavity ensuring a full fill of the cavity wall. The Insulation Technicians follow a strict drilling pattern set out by the Irish Agreement Board to insure all areas of the cavity if filled.


Eurofoam in the West of Ireland

EuroFoam is a spray applied foam insulation that expands 100 times its initial volume, to fill every crevice, virtually eliminating air leakage, convection and airborne moisture movement.
