Introducing the Red Book Companion, for specification on-the-go


The Red Book Companion

CSR Gyprock has released the latest edition of its Fire, Acoustic and Thermal design guide, the Red Book. Hailed as the industry’s go-to for design and specification in residential and commercial construction, the expanded edition of the 2017 Red Book brings all new content, and an all new way to access the information.

Recognising that industry professionals are now more on-the-go than ever, Gyprock has launched the 2017 Red Book in the expected traditional print and PDF versions, and has also unveiled a new cloud-based application tool called the Red Book Companion. The revolutionary app enables access to system information and technical guidance and was recently presented to Australian design professionals during a national road show for the launch of the 2017 Red Book. Red Book launch events were held in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth, with architects, designers and other industry professionals gathering for an intimate and informative session on the Red Book, and the unveiling of a digital app for this technical manual – the Red Book Companion.

Key features: 


The Red Book Companion  
  • The full contents of the 2017 Red Book, in sections that follow the same order as the print and PDF versions of the book.
  • Personalisation features – users have the ability to bookmark favourite systems, add notes and sketches to systems and the option of sending full system details direct to multiple email addresses. This allows users to find a system that works for a project and share with others.
  • Selected systems have CAD and Revit files attached to them, which a user can email directly to their mailbox.
  • An in-built System Selector with an easy to use interface designed to assist navigation to system options that meet specific performance criteria.
