Modern construction must meet complex requirements. Key energy performance management must synergise with ventilation and illumination as well as design. The increasing implementation of technology calls for integral planning processes and new forms of space creation. Accordingly, Knauf offers premium solutions in drywall construction. As a reliable partner, the Knauf Group supports customers with wellfounded know-how and exceptional service – from local housing construction to superlative architecture worldwide.
A BRAND OF DRY CONSTRUCTION SYSTEMS AND SOLUTIONS
At Knauf, we are experts in dry construction systems and solutions for wall and ceiling applications, with a comprehensive portfolio encompassing five product categories. Knauf’s scope ranges from innovative and customer-centric solutions to premium quality products and technical support.
Our products offer various features and benefits – sound and thermal insulation as well as moisture, fire and impact resistance, for example – that are suitable for fast-track renovation, installation, and refurbishment. Our plasterboards, ceilings, compounds, metal framing, and substrates are designed to meet applicable safety and performance standards and are constructed with customer safety in mind.
Perfect for drywall and ceiling systems and solutions, our plasterboards are the result of many years of scientific experimentation and innovation. Cleaner, faster and easily handled by fewer workers, our plasterboards have high performance levels of sound, moisture, impact and fire resistance, ideally suited to hospitals, theatres, schools and other commercial and residential buildings.
Our portfolio includes acoustic panels, specialty ceilings, gypsum ceiling tiles, and metal ceilings, as well as both standard and seismically rated suspension systems.
Used for jointing, bonding, skimming and creating textured finishes for building interiors, we have a broad range of compounds with solutions formulated according to specific requirements and preferences.
Our range of metal components and profiles allows the construction of drywall and ceilings to be done faster, more accurately and cleaner than conventional methods. Also, this innovative framing can be engineered to suit a jobsite’s requirements while achieving global construction standards.
The Knauf Securock® Glass-Mat Sheathing is designed with a high strength, water- and mould-resistant gypsum core that is non-combustible and fire-resistant. Whereas, the USG Durock® Cement Boards form an exterior drywall system that is lightweight and versatile with water and mould resistance performance, allowing for faster construction speed as well.
With our experience and knowledge combined, Knauf’s products and solutions are suitable for internal and external drywall and ceilings of commercial and residential spaces.
