Aesthetic solutions

Plasterboard and plasterboard systems give designers some tools to create contemporary designs for hotels, restaurants, offices, homes, schools and hospitals.

For instance, plasterboard can be curved to create imaginative architectural effects. With careful installation and proper framing methods, tightly curved walls, staircases and ceilings are possible, particularly with Contour board.
