Gyprock Superchek is part of Gyprock's Residential Specialty Options range. Superchek is the highest specification plasterboard in Gyprock’s residential range, manufactured with a high recycled content which increases density and board strength to deliver improved impact and sound resistance.
Superchek is not suitable where it would be in contact with water or for environments with a constant relative humidity above 90%. For wet areas in residential homes, Gyprock Aquachek™ or Gyprock® Sensitive would be better choices.
Gyprock Superchek is manufactured in Australia to Australian Standard AS2588 and the heavy-duty face paper is white.
High Impact Resistance
While Gyprock’s standard plasterboard, Gyprock Plus provides good durability, Superchek provides much higher levels of impact resistance for added peace of mind. Gyprock Superchek has better resistance to dents and scrapes from things such as furniture and school bags. Comparative impact testing has shown that Gyprock Superchek requires double the force to impose a discernable surface indentation. Its denser core also provides greater sag resistance when installed to wider ceiling joist spacings.
Improved Sound Comfort
Superchek delivers better sound absorption and less noise transfer for a quieter, more comfortable home. Walls lined with Superchek provide a 15% reduction in perceived loudness compared to standard plasterboard. When installed in ceilings of multi-storey homes, Superchek can also reduce noise levels between floors.
Engineered with High Recycled Content
In the manufacturing process for Gyprock Superchek, selected waste by-products from other industries are included in the core structure. These materials would otherwise be sent to landfill and while this is an environmentally responsible initiative, the materials used also assist in boosting the plasterboard’s performance.
Superchek is available in 10mm thickness with widths of 1200mm and 1350mm in 4200mm long panels. The long edges of all panels are recessed for flush jointing.
As a 10mm board, Superchek is predominantly used for residential applications in standard installations, where door frames and window reveals are generally designed for a 10mm internal lining.
- Any non-wet area, residential walls or ceilings where increased impact resistance or acoustic insulation is desirable
- Projects where sustainability and environmentally sensitive building materials are important
