GIB Standard Ceilings
Thicker 13mm GIB Standard plasterboard is recommended for use on ceilings for a better quality finish, especially where wet and humid conditions mean ceiling sag can be amplified. Used in ceilings it can withstand distributed loads up to 3.0kg/m², easily supporting loads such as R5.0 insulation.
GIB Standard plasterboard is an economical lining material available in 10mm and 13mm thicknesses.
- 10mm GIB Standard plasterboard is suitable for walls
- Thicker and more rigid 13mm GIB Standard plasterboard is recommended for ceilings as its less prone to sagging than 10mm plasterboard in a ceiling application
