Installation Guidance

Which side of the board should face outwards?

For all Gyproc plasterboards, the coloured paper face should face outwards and is the side suitable for plastering or direct decoration. The reverse side, with printed board details, should be installed facing inwards and is not suitable for receiving a plaster finish.

For our specialist boards, including our paperless Glasroc range, the smooth face of the board should face outwards, with the rough side facing inwards.
