Plasterboard Thermal XP Tapered Edge 35x1200x2400mm
With Plasterboard Thermal XP Tapered Edge, you can enjoy a 60% increase in insulation as compared to what you did with the standard plasterboard. This product is created by laminating the GTEC Standard Board over polystyrene. The thickness of the Plasterboard Thermal XP Tapered Edge ranges between 27-55 mm. Furthermore, it also offers a 10% better performance as compared to the thermal EPS. This provides it excellent to be used in loft conversion projects as well as for insulating walls. To add to the already-great performance, its added layer of vapour-control reduces condensation risk considerably.
GTEC Standard Board is laminated to extruded polystyrene to generate a product which offers a 60% improvement in insulation over standard plasterboard.

What is Tapered Edge Plasterboard
Tapered edge boards are ideal for either jointing or skimming. Plasterboard generally comes in 1200mm wide sheets, designed to suit the standard 600mm stud spacing used in housing today.
Insulated plasterboard is a great time-saver and offers you extra confidence that your insulation is going to stay in position. Thermal insulation board is bonded to the back of the plasterboard which helps give a swift installation.
Insulating interior walls are not as well-known, although it offers homeowners some energy saving and sound-dampening advantages. The best time to insulate all walls is during new construction, but it's possible to add insulation to existing walls without tearing off the drywall.
The purpose of insulation is to slow the rate of heat transference. This is true in both hot and cold climates. In cold climates, it is designed to prevent the flow of heat out of the building. In hot climates, its purpose is to reduce the movement of temperature into the building.
