Boral Plasterboards 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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
FlexiBOARD plasterboard sheets are supplied in 50 sheet packs
of standard 1200mm wide, 3600mm or 4800mm long and nominal 6.5mm thick.
FlexiBOARD plasterboard sheets more than 1200mm wide and 4800mm
