Poor Installation Leads to Weaker Stability

Achieving proper plasterboard installation is a common pain point due to issues that inferior screws present. One such issue is stripped screw heads, which occur when the screw's head grooves shear off. This results in a significantly weakened hold and stability for the plasterboard. The plasterboard is then at risk of detaching from the wall completely.

Another common issue is loose, popping screws that have not grabbed the plasterboard firmly. These loose screws will eventually cause cracks, voids, and damage in the plasterboard from the movement and vibration. This not only impacts aesthetics but also the integrity of the wall or ceiling.

Finally, inferior screws that are low quality or have the wrong specifications will be unable to withstand the load and vibration that plasterboard ceilings and walls undergo daily. The plasterboard needs robust, high-tension screws that can provide lasting stability without pullout failure.

Within construction projects large and small, leaving shoddy work will often require costly repairs or replacement, and damage the reputation of your business. It’s crucial to get a strong, lasting installation the first time.

Concerns Solved with Exceptional Screws

Our plasterboard screws are engineered to prevent these problems through optimised design. Sharp, self-drilling tips effortlessly penetrate the plasterboard while course threads grip firmly without stripping. We offer an extensive range of sizes and types to suit any application. When you use our plasterboard screws on your projects, you can have complete confidence in robust and lasting results.

How to Ensure Proper Installation

Improper plasterboard installation can lead to a range of issues from minor flaws to major structural problems. Follow these best practices using our screws to avoid installation mishaps:

  • Use the Right Screw Type - Select plasterboard screws based on your wall frame material (timber vs metal) and board thickness. Our experts can advise the best options.
  • Follow Recommended Screw Patterns - Adhere to spacing guidelines for screw placement rather than screwing randomly. Typical spacing is 12 to 16 inches apart.
  • Drill Pilot Holes - Drilling small pilot holes prevents cracking and screw snapping, especially with denser boards.
  • Set Proper Screw Depth - Screws should sink below the surface but not puncture the back of the board. Adjust your drill depth accordingly.
  • Avoid Over-Tightening - Tighten screws until snug and flush with the board rather than aggressively over-cranking. Let the threads do the work.
  • Take Your Time - Rushing leads to cracked boards, cross-threaded screws, and improper alignment. Take care during installation.
  • Inspect Your Work - Look for protruding or stripped screw heads, cracks around screws, and any loosening. Catch issues early.

With the right plasterboard screws and proper technique, you can execute professional, seamless installations every time. Our team is here to provide product recommendations and technical guidance for you and your team.
