Introduction
FlexiBOARD™
Boral Plasterboard’s FlexiBOARD™ has added a new dimension to wall and ceiling design and construction. Curved, wavy or simply contoured walls, ceilings and feature panels are easy to construct using FlexiBOARD™.

FlexiBOARD™ consists of a non-combustible gypsum core specially formulated to enable the board to curve to tight radii without wetting.

FlexiBOARD™ may be applied to timber, steel or masonry substrates making it ideal for construction of curved walls and ceilings, feature partitions, barrel-vaulted ceilings, arches, domes and bulkheads for both commercial and residential applications.
Description
Boral Plasterboard FlexiBOARD™ is nominal 6.5mm thick gypsum plasterboard specially formulated for curved surface applications. Ideal for convex and concave designs, the feature strength core allows it to bend to tight radii. The core is encased in a strong paperliner, with recessed long edges enclosed within a complete paper fold, ensuring a smooth finish when taping and jointing.
Features
FlexiBOARD™ is lightweight and easy to install, saving both time and money when constructing curved plasterboard surfaces.

Lightweight, FlexiBOARD™ scores and snaps easily and its extraordinary flexibility enables efficient construction of sharply contoured walls or ceilings without prior wetting of the board.

The recessed edges of FlexiBOARD™ ensure rapid taping and jointing and smooth flush finishing, producing a superior surface that will accept a wide range of decorative finishes.
Benefits
FlexiBOARD™ can be applied to timber, steel or masonry substrates. With so many alternatives, FlexiBOARD™ is an economical choice for construction of curved surfaces whatever the project. Boral Plasterboard FlexiBOARD™ is available in all states.



Performance
Boral Plasterboard FlexiBOARD™ must be installed in accordance with the requirements of Australian Standard AS/NZS 2589.1:1997 - “Gypsum linings in residential and light commercial construction - Application and Finishing.” Wetting FlexiBOARD™ is only necessary to obtain extremely tight radii, or in situations where temperature and humidity are very low.
Handling and Storage
Care needs to be taken not to damage the edges of the FlexiBOARD™ sheets when handling.
Plasterboard should be delivered to site immediately prior to installation to reduce risk of damage and should be stacked flat and kept dry before and during installation. Storage off the ground should be on strong level bearers laid across the width of the sheet at 400mm max. centres.
