thermal plasterboard


Postby Variable » Fri Jun 08, 2007 9:28 pm

Hello there.
We are up grading the insulation in our kitchen, and i would like to use Gyproc Super 50mm thermal plasterboard as a dry lining fastened straight to the existing walls. This plasterboard has a type of foam back for the insulation, and I wonder if it would be a suitable choice bearing in mind it would have wall units secured to it.

I would be grateful of any advice.

Regards.

Not the best choice on a wall full of units and you are better to batten trhe wall placing battens at the unit fixing heights to give you an easy solid fix, then using insulation between the battens and then foil backed board.

Many thanks for getting back with your advice so soon, my mind is a lot easier now. I guess it's time to change tack.
