Introduction

The basic gypsum drywall assemblies described herein offer economical, quickly erected walls and ceilings on wood framing. Excellent sound attenuation at low cost is provided when gypsum panels are resiliently attached. The assemblies are likewise suitable for wall furring and exterior soffit applications. Variations of the systems are outlined below. A basic drywall construction suitable where SHEETROCK brand Gypsum Panels are applied direct to wood framing—either vertically with long edges parallel to framing, or horizontally with long edges at right angles to framing members. Perpendicular application, recommended except in certain fire-rated partition assemblies, provides greater strength, reduces joint treatment needed, and compensates for uneven framing alignment. Fastening of panels is by four alternative methods: Standard single nailing: 150 to 175 mm (6 to 7 ) o.c. spacing for ceilings, 175 to 200 mm (7 to 8 ) for walls. Double nailing: For minimizing defects due to loosely nailed panels. First nails spaced 300 mm (12 ) o.c, followed by second nails in close proximity 50 mm (2 ) of first. Screw application: Best known insurance against fastener pops caused by loosely attached panels. 32 mm (1-1/4 ) Type W screw is used. Adhesive application: Continuous bead of drywall stud adhesive applied to framing plus supplementary nailing; improves bond strength by 50% to 100%, greatly reduces face nailing needed. When vinyl foam tape is used on sidewalls with stud adhesive, supplementary fasteners are unnecessary.
Three proven methods of upgrading single layer job quality SHEETROCK brand Interior and Exterior Gypsum Ceiling Panels Eased Edge—Panels have an exclusive tapered rounded

Single layer

edge to help minimize ridging or beading and other imperfections and help compensate for extremes of temperature and humidity during construction. Back-Blocking Joint Reinforcement—A method designed to minimize an inherent joint deformation (“ridging”) that may occur with adverse job and weather conditions. Floating Interior Angle System—Application of panels to effectively reduce nail pops and angle cracking which may result from stresses at intersections of walls and ceilings. Systems have a face layer of SHEETROCK brand Gypsum Panels job-laminated to a base layer of gypsum panels and/or nailed or screw-attached through base layer directly to wood framing in walls and ceilings. Because laminated systems minimize the use of mechanical fasteners in the face layer, finer appearance results—along with greater strength, fire and sound resistance. Adhesive lamination of face layer to base layer is by either of two methods: (a) strip lamination—either DURABOND or SHEETROCK Setting-Type Joint Compound, Taping, or All Purpose Joint Compound Ready-Mixed applied in vertical strips 600 mm (24 ) o.c. and supplementary 38 mm (1-1/2 ) Type G screws, or (b) sheet lamination—adhesive applied over the entire panel surface with supplementary Type G screws or temporary supports until adhesive dries. These assemblies are completed with a Canadian Gypsum Company joint treatment system and decorating. In walls, however, when predecorated TEXTONE BRAND Gypsum Panels are adhesively applied, joint treatment is not required.

Ceiling height door frames may be used as control joints. Back-to-back penetrations of the diaphragm. particularly at windows. The compound should also be used to embed tape beyond areas to be tiled. Gypsum panel surfaces should be isolated with control joints or other stress relief where: (a) partition or furring abuts a structural element (except floor) or dissimilar wall or ceiling. Taping and finishing of SHEETROCK brand Gypsum Panels (Water-Resistant) is required under tile. framing (or 12. flanking paths. require additional reinforcement at corners to distribute concentrated stress if a control joint is not used. (d) partition or furring run exceeds 9 m (30 ). CGC Inc. The flashing and sealants selected shall be installed in a workmanlike manner in appropriate locations to maintain continuity of air/water barriers. Where these partitions are used for sound control. Seal around all cutouts for lights. Sound Tests are conducted under ideal laboratory conditions per ASTM procedures. Tests are conducted on Company products assembled to meet performance requirements of established test procedures specified by various agencies. Less than ceiling height frames should have control joints extending to the ceiling from both corners. seal the partition perimeter with 6 mm (1/4 ) minimum round bead of Acoustical Sealant. Comparable field performance depends on building design and careful attention to detailing and workmanship.3 kg/m2 (1.

This natural phenomenon occurs through no fault of the products. Where back-blocking is used. it is important to install the ceiling insulation before or immediately after installing the ceiling board. During periods of low outside temperature. First coat: oil-based primer. if required. use scaffold nails driven through gypsum blocks into the framing at third points vertically for temporary shoring. back butt-end joints with RC-1 Resilient Channels. airborne dirt may collect. second coat: either alkyd or latex exterior paint. Textures and Finishing Products SA933 for finishing product specifications. Exposed surfaces should receive two coats of good quality exterior paint. The following precautions must be observed to minimize sagging of ceiling panels: 1 Where vapour retarder is required in cold weather conditions. For fire-rated resilient construction. float the end joints between supports and back-block with a 200 mm (8 ) wide strip of gypsum board the full length of the joint adhesively applied over abutting ends. 10 Fixture Attachment 11 Double-Layer Laminated 3/8 Panels 12 Acoustical Tile 13 SHEETROCK brand Exterior Gypsum Ceiling Board 14 Shadowing 15 WARNING: COMBUSTIBLE 16 Additional Information CGC Inc. Water-based textures. producing photographing or shadowing over fasteners and furring of exterior walls. Treatment of joints and screwheads with joint compound may be omitted where gypsum panels serve as a base for adhesively applied acoustical tile. causing the board to sag. the temperature of the gypsum ceiling panels and vapour retarder must remain above the interior air dew point temperature during and after the installation of panels and finishing materials. Gypsum Panels & Accessories SA927 for information on system components. In this assembly. DUROCK Cement Board Folder SA932 for data on ceramic tile base. Back blocking end joints will minimize joint ridging and is recommended. See technical folders in this series: Construction Selector SA100 for fire and sound-rated systems. SA924 15 . Rigid foam (cellular plastic) insulation will ignite if exposed to fire of sufficient heat and intensity. The 38 mm (1-1/2 ) Type G screw is not recommended. Use only as directed by the specific instructions accompanying the product. Lightweight fixtures and trim should be installed using expandable anchors for screw attachment. they should be supported from the primary framing.Drywall/Wood Framed Systems During periods of cold or damp weather when a polyethylene vapour retarder is installed on ceilings behind the gypsum board. Refer to CGC Gypsum Construction Handbook for complete details. Failure to follow this procedure may result in moisture condensation on the back side of the gypsum board. interior finishing materials and high ambient humidity conditions can produce sag in gypsum ceiling panels if adequate vapour and moisture control is not provided. Most sag problems are caused by the condensation of water vapour within the gypsum panel. 2 The interior space must be adequately ventilated and air circulation must be provided to remove water vapour from the structure. but. The placement of vapour retarders. Medium and heavyweight fixtures are not recommended on resilient surfaces. 9 Back-Blocking Ridging or deformation at the panel joints may occur in gypsum board construction under adverse job or weather conditions. insulation levels and ventilation requirements will vary by location and climate and should be reviewed by a qualified engineer if in question.
