Durable, yet lightweight products have increased in demand as the focus on green buildings and sustainability takes centre stage across the construction industry. Ceilings are often overlooked when it comes to product development, but this is no longer the case thanks to a new fit-for-purpose vinyl product.
Gyprex® L is a new lightweight ceiling tile, which primarily targets commercial institutions including offices, education, healthcare and retail developments. The new Gyprex® L tiles by Saint-Gobain’s Gyproc division are manufactured in a 6.4 mm thickness, making them easy to handle and install.
Paul Louw, Gyproc SA’s product category manager for ceiling solutions and metals, notes: “The new Gyprex® L ceiling tiles are a great option for areas that require fit-for-purpose level vinyl ceiling tiles. Our range of ceiling systems provides the most versatile design and aesthetic options in the market, whilst incorporating the unique environmental properties of natural gypsum. The new tiles are available in two types of finishes, namely white vinyl and fissured facing.”
Using the new cost-effective lay-in solution, the Gyprex® L ceiling tile will not sag when correctly installed and is robust enough to be scratch- and dent-resistant. Manufactured with a 100% recyclable gypsum core, the low-maintenance tiles are easy to clean and provide a degree of sound insulation.
