Make your House/Room Soundproof with the Latest Drywall

So what is drywall?

Drywall is built by sandwiching two gypsum plasterboard sheets on both sides of a GI steel frame. The gypsum jointing compounds are specially used to join the plasterboards. Drywall is widely used in interior decor as a separator or a partition wall.

The advantages of using drywall are as follows:

  • Drywall is a modern, flexible, and sustainable innovation in construction.
  • It is safe and durable. For example, you can even build drywall that is 15 metres high.
  • It is sturdy and fire resistant. Drywall can be designed to be fire resistant for two to four hours. It can be a critical lifesaver for high rise buildings. It can last for a lifetime if it is not destroyed or damaged by force.
  • Drywall is a tried, tested, and proven technology that is used worldwide.
  • Though the brick wall is the first choice for the construction of houses, the drywall is an excellent alternative. It consumes less water for curing, is faster to build, and conserves energy and natural resources.

To make bricks, you need fertile soil, and the brick manufacturing process consumes lots of fuel in the form of coal. Also, you don’t always get excellent quality bricks as the manufacturing process is non-standardized. Most of the bricks differ in size, strength, weight, and finishing.

  • Drywall is an effective sound insulator and gives far better acoustic comfort for your loved ones.
  • It is faster to construct drywalls as they don’t need to be cured like brick walls. If you build a brick wall that needs curing for four days, you can finish making the drywall in a day. Therefore, you can save about 25% of your time.
  • It is easier to fit electrical switches and wires in drywall. You can even pre-plan the service management work. In case of a brick wall, you must cut out the brick and then fit in electrical switches.
  • Drywalls are lighter than brick walls and therefore are suitable for construction high rise buildings. They are widely used in building offices, hospitals, hotels, and so on.
  • Lastly, they are sustainable. And have low embodied energy and improves the thermal insulation of the space. You can recycle them and are dust free.

Due to the advantages listed above and the scarcity of water and labor, the drywall has gained acceptance in India by interior designers and builders.
