Fixing Systems - for steel and timber framed walls and ceilings

In most situations, the recommended fixing system for interior walls and ceilings is a combination of adhesive, such as Acrylic Stud Adhesive, and permanent fasteners such as nails or screws.

Depending on the characteristics and positioning of the wall or ceiling, various combinations of fixing materials are recommended. For example, the fastener only fixing system is to be used on walls which will be tiled, over existing linings or in fire rated installations. To check which fixing system is best for your application, refer to the Gyprock Residential Installation Guide.
