GIB® Standard – The New Standard For Building Peace of Mind

GIB® Standard – The New Standard For Building Peace of Mind
September 20, 2017

Since re-engineering GIB® Standard 10mm and 13mm in 2010, its strength, flexibility, and reputation for ease of installation and long lasting quality have been well proven on building sites nationwide. Simply put, it’s the new standard for building peace of mind. And that means you can build, and move onto your next project, with confidence.

The new standard for ceilings.

Thicker 13mm GIB® Standard plasterboard is recommended for use on ceilings for a better quality finish, especially where wet and humid conditions mean ceiling sag can be amplified. Used in ceilings it can withstand distributed loads up to 3.0kg/m2 easily supporting loads such as R5.0 insulation.

GIB® Standard plasterboard is an economical lining material available in 10mm and 13mm thicknesses.

  • 10mm GIB® Standard plasterboard is suitable for walls
  • Thicker and more rigid 13mm GIB® Standard plasterboard is recommended for ceilings as its less prone to sagging than 10mm plasterboard in a ceiling application
