How to Support Projecting Light Coves

V-Cut Plasterboard

Many of our projects involve pre fabricated coves for concealed lighting. A V-Cut cove is far superior to anything that is built on site. The lines are perfectly straight, the edges are sharp and clean and the work on site is minimal. However, projecting coves have to be supported correctly and the more the cove…

Plasterboard Margins

Buildings come in all shapes and sizes and indeed it is that one simple attribute that brings variety in its most basic form to architecture. But shaped buildings invariably complicate the regularity of the layout of the modular accessible suspended ceilings and the solution is often to remove that complication with a plasterboard margin. Plasterboard margins…

Flush Recessed Skirting Boards

chrisdunn

The modern trend towards recessed skirting boards no doubt lies in the beauty of the flush appearance between the plasterboard wall and the skirting board. This detail has been achieved using a number of different methods many of which rely upon an extruded aluminium profile for the effect. Indeed there can be some additional benefits of…

Curved Corners

chrisdunn

There are often situations where sharp corners onplasterboard partitions, whether for functional or aesthetic reasons, are an undesirable part of thedesign. V-Cut Flexiboards not only make it easier to create curved corners for drywall but also to very tight radii. Traditionally, the only way to get a tight rounded corner on a stud wall has…

Fire Rated Curved Walls

V-Cut Flexiboard offers opportunities to build dynamic curved walls with tight radii including a fire rating. One of the frequently asked questions we receive is will our Flexiboard provide a fire rating. The simple answer is we do not know but as we are removing a part of the board to enable it to flex…

Plasterboard & Glazed Wall Interfaces

chrisdunn

V-Cut provides an economic method of creating a flush and seamless interface between drywall and glass partitions without resorting to extruded or moulded profiles. The design offers limitless variations. Most modern open floor commercial office areas include some sort of cellular division for meeting rooms or managers’ offices. It’s not uncommon that the internal walls…

V-Cut Edge: Bead-Less Technology

chrisdunn

V-Cut plasterboard eliminates the need for corner and stop beads. Wherever there is plasterboard or drywall invariably there are metal beads and, in more recent times, plastic beads.Corners, abutments, upstands, coves, recesses or bulkheads, whether for suspended ceilings orwalls, all normally require beading because such details involve cut boards and cut boards needtape and jointing. So…

Baffling Sounds

chrisdunn

Hard surfaces do not make for a comfortable living and working environment. That’s because sound bounces and without any porous absorptive surfaces it keeps bouncing (known as reverberation), effectively echoing, to a point that is uncomfortable. Modern offices accommodate the need to reduce echoing by introducing perforated metal tiles or absorptive mineral fibre ceilings that allow…

Fortune Favours the Brave

chrisdunn

Plasterboard is almost entirely used for construction and has conceptually little changed in the last century – boards are supplied, cut and fixed onto framing on site then trimmed and finished. V-Cut engineers plasterboard to reduce site activities,cut waste and make site installation quicker, better and cheaper but has occasionally found reluctance in some contractors…

The Wonder Mineral

chrisdunn

Ever wondered how plasterboard came about? Although gypsum has been used since around 9000 BC it was Augustine Sackett and Fred Kane who invented Sackett Board in 1894 and that developed into Gypsum Board in 1916. It took 25 years forbuilders to start using the drywall products made by USG at the time. In fact…
