NEW! USG UltraLight Sheetrock®

November 12, 2012 7:30 pm Comments Off on NEW! USG UltraLight Sheetrock®

The weight has been lifted: Introducing Sheetrock Brand UltraLight Panels!

  • The lightest 1/2″ gypsum wallboard panels available
  • Easier to lift, carry and install
  • Light weight speeds installation
  • Up to 30% lighter and stronger pound-for-pound than standard drywall
  • 15-24lbs per panel (length dependent)

Description: Sheetrock®Brand UltraLight Panels are re-engineered, lightweight gypsum wallboard panels with a high strength-to-weight ratio composite design. The panels have superior sag resistance that eliminates the need for traditional 1/2″ sag-resistant ceiling panels. The noncombustible gypsum core is encased in 100% recycled face and back papers. The natural finish face paper is folded around the long edges to protect the core and the ends are cut square and even. The long edges of the panels are tapered, allowing joints to be reinforced with Sheetrock® Brand joint treatment systems.

Intended for:

  • Non-fire rated single-layer wall and ceiling applications
  • New residential or commercial construction
  • Repair and remodel construction
  • Parallel or perpendicular installation on ceilings with 24″ O.C. framing when water-based texture is applied
  • Wood or steel framing
