What screw lengths do I use for fixing to metal & timber?

The screw should be the thickness of the board plus a minimum 10mm penetration into Gypframe metal or the thickness of the board plus a minimum 25mm penetration into timber using our British Gypsum screws. Please refer to the SITE BOOK for more information.

Do I need to use a special screw to install Gyproc Habito?

Yes, you need to use our High Performance Screws, specifically designed for use with Gyproc Habito.

The main feature of the screw is the shape of the head. It is designed to leave a good finish when installing the high strength Gyproc Habito boards. In conjunction with using an impact driver, a good finish can be achieved every time without paper burring or bulging. Standard screws are almost impossible to drive home due to the shape of the head and the strength of Gyproc Habito.
