CSR Gyprock has recently extended its perforated plasterboard range with the launch of two new Gyptone profiles for curved ceilings – Gyptone Flexible 12mm Square and Gyptone Flexible Slotted Minigrid. The Gyprock range of perforated plasterboard allows architects and designers to create ceilings and walls with a balance of aesthetics and functionality.
Manufactured for design versatility, both Gyptone Flexible boards allow architects, specifiers and design professionals the ability to create impressive spaces with curved ceilings – all whilst achieving a comfortable environment with excellent acoustic performance.
Gyptone Flexible perforated plasterboard is installed in one layer and can be dry curved to a radius of 2.2 metres. Gyptone Flexible 12mm Square plasterboard consists of eight large square groupings per sheet, each with 400mm x 12mm square perforations at 25mm centres. Gyptone Flexible Slotted Minigrid plasterboard features eight large square groupings per sheet, each with 16 mini grids of six 6mm x 80mm slot perforations.
Both plasterboard profiles feature a highly effective black acoustic fabric backing that improves the acoustics of the ceiling. This unique fabric is exclusive to Gyprock and provides other benefits such as eliminating dust from ceiling cavities and masking visibility of the ceiling framework.

Activ’Air is another important feature within the Gyptone Flexible range. Activ’Air converts any formaldehyde in the atmosphere into non-harmful inert compounds that are permanently locked in the board and cannot be released back into the air. This patented technology was developed by worldwide plasterboard specialist, Saint-Gobain, and is available to the Australian market thanks to Gyprock’s International Alliance program.
Additionally, Gyprock has launched the Kimberley Alustar Flush access panel option within the Rigitone perforated plasterboard range. Barely perceptible in a continuous perforated ceiling pattern, access panels are integrated into suspended ceilings to allow for inspection, service and maintenance work on the installations in the space above. The Rigitone Kimberley Alustar Flush access panel is available in many sizes to suit various access applications.
