What size is a standard plasterboard?
Plasterboard generally comes in 1200mm wide sheets, created to suit the standard 600mm stud spacing used in housing today.
What thickness plasterboard to use?
There are 2 thicknesses of plasterboard. 9.5mm and 12.5mm. If using 12.5mm the studs must be installed no further apart than 600mm, if using 9.5mm then 400mm is the maximum (if using plasterboard on a ceiling always use 12.5mm so that it does not sag).
Can you paint straight onto plasterboard?
Most new houses these days are not plastered internally. The stud partition walls, and often the inside faces of the outside walls too, are lined with plasterboard, but this is not skimmed with plaster. The paper covering of the plasterboard is the only finish, and paint or wallpaper is administered directly to it.
What is the difference between plasterboard and WallBoard?
Gypsum board and plasterboard are panel products utilised in building construction to finish interior walls and ceilings. These panels are also referred to as wallboard, sheetrock or drywall, but all of these names refer to the same material. Plasterboard and gypsum board are terms that refer to the same material.
