14.0.0 Drywall Systems

Steel or wood studs, faced with gypsum panels (regular, fire rated, or vinyl faced) have dominated the construction industry, representing the most cost effective, light weight, and fire resistant means of creating interior walls. Specialty products, such as 1/2-inch (12 mm) thick cement board, sometimes referred to as Wonder board and exterior-grade gypsum sheathing panels, along with the development of heavier-gauge structural metal studs for curtain wall construction, has expanded the number of applications to which these products can be used.
