Supplier becomes “first in the Middle East” to warrant drylining systems
Abu Dhabi-based materials developer Saint-Gobain Gyproc has launched SpecSure, a drylining system warranty to guarantee the use of Gyproc products within its systems.
Drylining systems comprise Gyproc plasterboards, Gypframe metal components and Gyproc accessories, such as jointing compound, tapes and screws.
The company’s drylining systems, which comprise of Gyproc plasterboards, Gypframe metal components and Gyproc accessories, such as jointing compound, tapes and screws, were recently showcased to consultants, architects and project engineers at the Gyproc Seminar. The seminars are held every quarter.
Case studies conducted on the materials showed a projected saving of more than 30% when block-work was substituted for lightweight drylining partitions.
The use of the systems can also reduce the building programme by 65% and increase saleable floor space by 6%, according to information from the company.
“Our systems withstand the robust demands of today’s construction methods and building uses and provide comfortable living and working environments,” explained Gyproc technical manager Jason Hird.
