Full range of specifications from simple plasterboard ceilings through to a range of gypsum-based, acoustic suspended ceilings and lay-in grid systems

Close

They cover all building categories in both new-build and refurbishment and can satisfy the most exacting performance requirements. British Gypsum plasterboard ceilings can also be specified as a membrane to protect roof trusses in loft spaces.

A number of sound insulating solutions are given for remedial treatments in conversion work. These include the GypFloor SILENT sound-insulating floor system, which provides a means of upgrading the floor construction and optimising the performance of the ceiling lining, without damaging original decorative details. British Gypsum acoustic ceiling tiles are designed to allow for more imaginative and flexible ceiling designs within the commercial sector.

It is quick and simple to install, and provides a demountable system that is easy to remove, replace and even reposition if required.

  • Gyptone planks and CasoLine Quick-Lock can be easily removed by hand, providing total uninterrupted access to the services above for future maintenance
  • Suspended ceilings are usually prone to damage in frequently accessed service areas as they cannot normally be easily removed. CasoLine Quick-Lock Corridor provides easy access to plenum services within corridors, through a completely un-suspended grid that can span up to 2.4m
  • There is no requirement to install hangers or soffit supports for spans 2.4m or less (1.8m if insulation laid on back); making setting out, installation and removal much easier

  • High level of design flexibility; bulkheads, gradients and changes in height can all be fully integrated
  • Services inspection and access points are easily included during design or installation
  • Adaptable metal framing system fully compatible with a wide range of British Gypsum lining solutions to achieve a variety of performances tailored to meet individual project requirements
  • Improvement to acoustic and fire performance can be achieved without the need to access the room above
  • Partition heights can be reduced as the partition channel can be supported by the ceiling framework rather than the soffit

How do I get a 30 minute fire protection to structural steel beams supporting a concrete floor from a lay in suspended ceiling?

Our Gyprex Satinspar tiles are all capable of achieving 30-minute fire protection to BS476-Pt 23: 1987 if installed in specific CasoLine lay-in grid systems.

How do you upgrade the fire and/or acoustic performance of a timber floor from below?

We offer a wide range of ceiling systems for this purpose including GypLyner UNIVERSAL and CasoLine MF.

Simple to install, and compatible with the full range of British Gypsum boards, GypLyner Universal can be used to significantly improve performance levels in a refurbishment project and can also be used for new build installations.

  • A versatile system that is suitable for concrete soffits or timber joists, and utilises the same components for either wall or ceiling installations
  • Can also be installed onto a plasterboard ceiling, making it ideal for refurbishment projects where it is desirable or necessary to retain the existing ceiling
  • Ideal for meeting the diverse range of performance requirements of modern construction - compatible with the full range of British Gypsum boards, including Gyproc, Glasroc, Gyptone and Rigitone ranges
  • Minimal loss of room height with as little as 25mm cavity required
  • Fire and acoustic performance upgrades can be achieved with access to the underside of the floor only

How do you fire upgrade a lath & plaster ceiling?

Underdraw the existing lath and plaster with chicken wire, then form a new ceiling underneath by counter battening with timber or by using our GypLyner UNIVERSAL system.

How do you upgrade the fire and/or acoustic performance of a timber floor from below?

We offer a wide range of ceiling systems for this purpose including GypLyner UNIVERSAL and CasoLine MF.

Do you recommend plastering over sanded lime backgrounds?

No, we would recommend instead drylining using GypLyner UNIVERSAL. Please refer to White Book Chapter 07 Section 04 Page 02 for more details.

How do I dot & dab plasterboard to concrete columns and walls?

The DriLyner BASIC system is ideal for concrete surfaces that are stable and free of release agents.

For smooth concrete surfaces, use Thistle Bond-It to provide a key for the Gyproc DriWall Adhesive. Use a roller to apply it in bands where the adhesive will be applied; you will be able to see it while dot and dabbing as it’s green in colour.


The concrete background should be reasonably dry and protected from the weather. Brush it down to remove dust before applying Thistle Bond-It or adhesive.

You can use Gyproc Sealant as an alternative to drywall adhesive when working on smooth concrete backgrounds. This also helps to minimise air gaps between boards, improving acoustic and thermal performance. Apply it to the perimeter of the wall, and around any service penetrations or openings.

For more advice on dot and dabbing, see our in-depth article. You can also refer to the DriLyner section of our Site Book for specific installation guidance.
