We are stockists of high-quality gypsum wallboards suitable for drylining walls and ceilings and constructing dry stuff partitions. Our plasterboards consist of a pure gypsum core bonded between two strong, high quality recovered-waste-paper liners. The composition of the gypsum core is varied to create a range of plasterboards with different characteristics. Our boards are high performance products specifically designed for thermal and acoustic applications and to provide impact, moisture, vapour and fire resistance. Not only do we stock standard boards, we also stock high performance boards including water resistant, sound proofing, fire resistant, & high impact boards.

Part B, Part E & Part L of Building Regulations aim to help make buildings quieter and greener.

Part B                                                                                                                        

Part B of the Building Regulations contains the legal requirements governing the standard of fire resistance across all buildings and has the safety of the occupants and building structure in mind. Under Part B the builder is required to consider the system’s Fire resistance standards.

Part E

Part E of the Building Regulations contains the legal requirements governing the quality of acoustics in buildings where people sleep. Part E puts the onus on the builder to demonstrate that the stated acoustic ratings have been achieved. So, if you are looking to build houses, apartments, hotels or residential rooms, then your separating walls, partitions, floors and ceilings must adhere to the current acoustic ratings.

Part L

Part L of the Building Regulations sets out legal requirements governing heat loss, the conservation of fuel and power and reducing carbon emissions – think of it as your project’s ‘carbon footprint’. Under Part L, the whole of the building process must be considered – not just individual elements.


  • Domestic and commercial.

  • Metal and timber partitions.

  • Linings, floors and ceilings.


  • To meet Part B, Part E and Part L requirements.
