Partition walls or suspended ceilings are often made of gypsum boards. The boards are made of gypsum, minced paper and perlite. Plasterboarding is a faster and less expensive way than the conventional masonry work. The material is lightweight so it can often be used in places where traditional bricks would not be appropriate. Since after mounting, it only needed to be painted, so tenants can return to their rooms soon after the plasterboarding is done. Another advantage of plasterboards is that it does not attract insects and rodents.
The process of plasterboarding
1. Setting up the frame: first step of gypsum plastering is deploying fasteners to the walls and to the ceilings and attach the chassis to them. The chassis provides the necessary support for the structure.
2. Then the gypsum boards get cut (the plasterboard can be easily cut to size).
3. The next step is fixing plasterboard sheets to the frame.
4. The final phase involves mounting the edge guards and removing gaps by glueing, followed by painting of the gypsum boards.
