  • Background surface irregularities are accommodated within the framework cavity
  • Provides a solution for backgrounds that are not suitable for bonded systems, for example plasters or DriLyner systems
  • Services are easily incorporated within the framework
  • Wide range of U-values achievable to suit project requirements through our extensive selection of Gyproc ThermaLine laminate board types and thicknesses
  • Minimal thermal bridging of the insulation layer due to the small, discrete fixings back to the substrate
  • Provides a thermally responsive environment with quick heating time as a result of positioning the insulation layer on the warm side of the room
  • Provides a high performance option to achieve enhanced acoustic performance
  • Ideal system for improving a wall’s water vapour resistance through the addition of a Gyproc DUPLEX board option with integrated vapour control membrane
  • Sound insulation airbourne: 49 - 66 (Rw dB)
  • Thermal performance: 0.36 - 0.21 (W/m²K)

Do you recommend plastering over sanded lime backgrounds

No, we would recommend drylining using GypLyner UNIVERSAL

How do you upgrade existing walls thermally?

Use Gyproc ThermaLine laminates. A range of products (BASICPLUSSUPER & PIR) and fixing systems (DriLyner TL, RFMF and GypLyner UNIVERSAL) to suit all situations are available. Please refer to the relevant section of the White Book for further information if required.

How do I acoustically upgrade an existing masonry wall?

Use Gyproc SoundBloc board and Isover insulation within GypLyner IWL or GypLyner UNIVERSAL systems. Selection depends on a number of factors such as type of background, height of lining and performance requirements and board type. Please refer to the relevant sections of the White Book for further information if required.
