GIB Makes Specifications Easier for Steel Stud Wall Systems

With the intention of making the specification of GIB plasterboard steel stud wall systems easier and quicker, GIB has released additional guidance notes on the maximum wall heights possible for different steel stud widths and base metal thicknesses (BMT).

In addition, the minimum steel stud to steel head-track expansion gaps required in the event of fire have also been more fully explained.

This new information has been, and will continue to be, added to the GIB website in the form of a new GIB Noise Control Systems and Fire Systems Supplement, allowing for the release of improvements prior to their inclusion in any new GIB BRANZ appraised systems.

Download the supplement document on the GIB website.

For further clarification please contact your nearest GIB Architectural Specification Manager or contact GIB.
