Gyprock Plus™

Standard plasterboard doesn’t get better than this – ideal for use on walls and ceilings in residential environments, Gyprock Plus features Optimised Core technology, making it stronger and lighter with significantly improved board handling.

Typical Applications

Gyprock Plus is typically used as a wall lining option in residential applications but can also be used on ceilings with standard 450mm joist centres. It is most suitable for areas of the home where exposure to moisture is not a concern such as bedrooms, living areas and entrance ways.

Gyprock Plus is a premium, lightweight 10mm thick plasterboard with a thicker face paper that produces a crisper score and snap experience with cleaner cuts and squarer edges. Optimised Core technology also provides greater breaking strength in a substantially lighter board that continues to exceed the performance requirements of Australian Standard AS/NZS 2588.


Gyprock Plus is best for ceilings with standard 450mm joist centres. In situations where the ceiling joists span 600mm centres, it is best to select Gyprock Supaceil.
