Internal Wall Linings
Plasterboard wall linings in a steel-framed house are fixed with bugle head self-drilling screws and standard stud adhesive.
With a correctly set screw gun, bugle head plasterboard screws can be tightened to finish slightly below the surface of the plasterboard without damaging the paper facing.
In wet areas, water resistant plasterboard or fibre cement sheet is fixed with self-embedding head screws. Flashing and tiling are done in the usual manner.
Pre-finished wall linings may be glued to steel studs with a wallboard adhesive and braced in place until bonded.
