Gyproc extends Saint-Gobain’s global metal-brand to South Africa

Gyproc extends Saint-Gobain’s global metal-brand to South Africa

For over forty years Gyproc has been roll-forming steel profiles for the ceiling and partitioning industry in South Africa. The commitment to local manufacture is to be strengthened with the introduction of Saint-Gobain’s international steel profile brand, Gypframe™.

Innovation and quality have always been the hallmark of the Gyproc wall and ceiling systems metal backbone. High-performance processes, including the UltraSTEEL® process, are used at the Germiston Metals plant to form a wide range of wall frame products, to which Gyproc’s range of RhinoBoard® and Habito® plasterboards are fixed.

With the recent introduction of the UltraSTEEL® I-stud, Gyproc is able to offer a two-hour fire resistant single-frame drywall up to a height of 13.4m.

Gypframe® profiles are crucial in supporting the performance offered by Gyproc’s acoustic and Habito® wall systems with industry-leading design for acoustic performance and bespoke length applications for Habito® installations.

Both exposed and concealed-grid systems have been formed from the earliest days of the local roll-forming operation, all this manufacturing know-how continues with the renaming of product from the plant. Meeting the needs of local conditions is central in product development, to this end Gypframe Essential is now available for non-fire-rated lay-in tile applications, paired with Gyprex® ceiling tiles.

Corrosion resistance is a crucial performance requirement for both wall frame and ceiling grids. Gypframe™ profiles offer zinc anti-corrosion coating following local industry guidelines and for ceiling grids provide Aluzinc coating, the well-established approach followed by roof sheeting manufacturers.

Wall and ceiling performance is also impacted by the screw fixing performance; the UtraSTEEL® process central to Gypframe® wall frame results in improved screw retention. Coupled with Gyproc’s range of drywall screws, a high level of performance is achieved.

The unseen backbone of drywall systems, the steel frame is the base for ultimate performance and should never be overlooked or compromised in the specification stage of interior designs. Gyproc’s technical team provides product support to architects and have a wealth of knowledge and experience regarding wall frame and ceiling grids.
