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.

How do you extend the length of Gypframe metal stud?

This can be achieved by ‘splicing’ two studs together with an overlap of 600mm minimum, then fixing together using Wafer Head Drywall Screws (two to each flange). Please refer to White Book Chapter 04 Section 01 Page 07 which includes details for Gypframe ‘C’ studs, AcouStuds and ‘I’ studs.
