So most people can afford it. And it definitely won’t break the bank.
Drywall partitioning advantages
Your drywall has great soundproof features. To do this we install Gyproc Soundbloc Designed with sound insulating properties in mind, it is more dense and thicker. Next we install Isover Cavitybatt. Which is a non-combustible Glasswool batt with glass tissue facing. Inserted into the cavity of the dry wall, the glass wool reduces sound transmission and with heat reduction in summer and heat retention in winter. It is . Isotherm is another type of insulation.
Drywall partitions can be made fireproof. To do this, we install Gyproc Firestop. This is a fire resistance system with a fire rating of 120 minutes. The inside of the partition is filled with Isover U Thermo Board. This is a mineral wool developed for high temperatures.
There is only one disadvantage which is the weaker plasterboards. Gypsum plaster covered in paper is not nearly as strong as brick and mortar. Plasterboards can break easily. They don’t last in wet or humid conditions. They get mouldy quickly.
