About This Product

Gold Bond High Strength LITE Gypsum Board is drywall that is formulated to be 25% lighter than standard 1/2" drywall. The result is a superior board that is lighter in weight, sag resistant, and easier to handle. High Strength LITE drywall can be used for walls and ceilings in non-fire rated single layer construction where framing members are spaced up to 24" o.c. Because it can be installed on both walls and ceilings, it eliminates the need for two different types of drywall on the job.

Highlights

  • Lightweight - 25% lighter than standard 1/2" drywall.
  • Suitable for all interior applications; including walls and ceilings.
  • Excellent sag resistance; Equivalent to 5/8" Type X drywall.
  • Features GridMarX guide marks on the board to allow for faster and more accurate installation.
  • Lighter weight results in easier handling.
  • Eliminates the need for two types of board on the job.
  • Achieves UL GREENGUARD Gold Certification for low chemical emissions into indoor air during product usage.
  • Excellent working properties, including score and snap, reduced dust, and improved strength-to-weight ratio.
  • Cuts easily for quick installation, permitting painting or other decoration and the installation of metal or wood trim almost immediately.
  • Dimensionally stable under changes in temperature and relative humidity and resists warping, rippling, buckling and sagging.
  • The gypsum core will not support combustion or transmit temperatures greatly in excess of 212°F (100°C) until completely calcined, a slow process.

            No straight edges
            I hauled around 30 sheets up my stairs to the second floor just to find out the edges were over a 1/4” out of square from top to bottom. See pic.

              We bought this a week ago to finish up a few walls down stairs in our barn. It may be light but we could only take one board at a time. 8^)) It cuts easy and leaves a fairly nice edge.

              Bought this for an attic I was finishing. I used it on the walls, sloped ceiling, and flat ceiling. It's lighter than some but supposedly still good to be used in ceilings. It seemed to go up ok, and I'm not immediately worried about the ceilings sagging - everything seems pretty secure, but we'll see what time brings.
