Types Of Plasterboard
Plasterboard is a flexible material that can be used in various building types. There are different types designed to meet different needs depending on your construction requirements and personal preferences. The three main types of plasterboards include:
- Standard plasterboard: this type of plasterboard is the most common type used in modern constructions. It consists of a gypsum board that is sandwiched between two cellulose paper layers. It typically comes in a 2.4m X 1.2m standard size.
- Moisture-resistant plasterboard: Also known as MR Board, moisture-resistant plasterboard is designed to be moisture resistant. It is more durable compared to the standard plasterboard. It is also denser and harder. It is more commonly used for plastering walls in areas of the home where moisture is likely to be an issue such as the shower.
Fireboard: although all types of plasterboards are resistant to fire-damage, the fireboard plaster is a lot more fire-resistant. It is made from a mixture of gypsum and glass fibers which makes it a lot resistant to fire compared to regular boards. If your building has stringent regulations regarding fire protection, this is the plasterboard to go for. However, it is important to note that while plasterboard is designed to be fire-resistant, it is not fire-proof. It will only resist the fire for a few hours.
