The UK’s leading drywall supplier
Many years of hard earned experience has led us to new and fresh thinking about how to install drywall better and more efficiently. The horrific disaster at Grenfell highlighted the need for us as an industry to explore ways by which we had more control over how we install our products: not just which products we install. Drywall is a big part of a buildings’ composition. It has a direct effect on the structural, fire and acoustic make up of a building. With that brings a serious responsibility.
We are committed to quality and safety
It occurred to us that for us to improve how we control installation we need to take a more active role in standardising some of our operations on site; to improve quality and ensure we comply with the manufacturers recommendations. Many things we actually do in drywall are repetitive and lend themselves to offsite production. Using diverse labour- only subcontracting groups of trades’ people, with each group of guys interpreting the manufacturers’ recommendations in sometimes completely different ways, can cause chaos.
However, making crucial components such as deflection heads, builders’ works openings and door sets where fire, structural and acoustic compliance in drywall is at its most critical, then pre fabricating these alone would de-risk a project substantially. Site quality is suddenly factory controlled.
This is good news for architects, main contractors, insurers, clients, specialist drywall contractors and labour only installers alike.
Custom Orders with Fast Turnaround Times
Furthermore, we will punch holes in the metal tracks to indicate where the screws should be fixed so that they adhere to the manufacturers’ recommendation. The installer will then be more likely to fix the product in the correct manner. Compliance to the specification goes up and snagging goes down. Management time checking simple installed items like these reduces because you have confidence in the product you have ordered. Peace of mind again!
Our Pre fabricated components made well will avoid negative issues surrounding often simple mistakes that frustrate both installers and contractors. A new positive site experience for all.
