Benefits of drywall

Lightweight construction with massive advantages

Modern drywall has numerous advantages

The time is ripe for a new way of thinking - and building. It is time for modern drywall construction from Knauf, because it offers the right solution for every requirement. Particular stability and robustness? High sound insulation? Climate impact? Optimal use of space? Knauf Trockenbau impresses with its outstanding performance values ​​and sets standards - with holistic, future-oriented concepts for new construction, renovation and upgrading. The result: a maximum of utility and quality.

Acoustics & sound

Soundproofing

Noise disturbs. Noise makes you sick. The demands placed on sound insulation are therefore higher than ever. In contrast to all conventional solid construction methods, dry construction systems from Knauf can meet all protection and comfort requirements on floors, walls and ceilings. For example, the special Knauf Silentboard soundproofing panel - alone or in conjunction with the multifunctional Knauf Diamant gypsum board - enables slim wall systems with the highest level of soundproofing. A special feature is their performance in the low-frequency range. With Knauf Silentboard, the highest sound insulation levels defined by the DEGA - German Society for Acoustics e.V. can be achieved in an extremely economical way.

Room acoustics

In terms of design, ceilings have a major influence on the atmosphere and look of an interior. In addition, the ceiling level has qualified as a multifunctional medium in modern architecture. Building physical requirements such as acoustics, room climate and lighting can be effectively bundled here. Aesthetics and precision, individuality and rationality - Knauf Cleaneo® acoustic designer ceilings are the reliable basis for implementing the ceiling as a convincing part of an architectural room idea. In addition to the reverberation time regulation, ball impact safety, fire protection F 30 or F 90, room climate optimization and noise protection are also met.

Fire protection

Fire protection from Knauf has always meant: systematic safety. This applies to tested constructions and system solutions for wall, ceiling and floor systems in general up to special requirements such as beam and column cladding, Cubo room-in-room systems, cable and ventilation ducts, timber construction in building class 4, up to DIN -Constructions.

Since fire protection is seldom the only requirement that is placed on a building task, Knauf constructions often meet other performance features in addition to the pure fire protection properties. The added value a selected construction provides beyond fire protection, for example increased sound insulation or a particularly robust surface, is clearly shown in the relevant planning documents from Knauf.

Comprehensive information on the subject of fire protection with systems and products from Knauf can also be found in the Knauf fire protection folder.

Wall & ceiling

wall

Light Knauf system walls stand in a special way for flexibility, efficiency and economy. They stand for fire protection, noise protection, robustness and high surface quality in residential and commercial buildings as well as in public buildings. Even burglar-proof and bullet-resistant walls for extreme requirements, e.g. in the security areas of banks, police stations or panic rooms, can now be implemented with Knauf constructions.

With standard and special constructions for fire and shaft walls or detailed solutions such as sword connections, ceiling and floor connections or the sound and fire protection upgrade of existing walls, Knauf offers the coordinated system solution for every requirement.

blanket

Whether private, commercial or public buildings - in the context of aesthetic and functional room planning, the ceiling design is a particular challenge. Shape and color, acoustics and noise protection have a strong influence on the room atmosphere. Fire protection must also guarantee comprehensive safety from above. Knauf ceiling systems combine all of these diverse requirements.

Particularly in the case of elaborately designed ceiling installations, the quality of the detailed work is becoming increasingly important. Knauf molded parts make an essential contribution here in order to combine the highest degree of precision with economic efficiency. Fast assembly thanks to a high degree of prefabrication and perfect surfaces - that is contemporary construction.

Knauf supports architects and specialist planners at an early stage in the planning phase. The Knauf FormBar online service tool clearly shows the design options - combined with specific offers for the planning phase.

Loft conversion

Unused reserves of space lie dormant under many roofs. Knauf systems for loft extensions offer optimal solutions here - in terms of building physics, design and economy. Well-engineered substructures offer enough space to easily move all installations. Thanks to its special edge for high-quality drywall construction, for example, the gypsum board Knauf Diamant 20 Panel is particularly suitable for lining sloping ceilings. A wide range of accessories for transitions and connections not only facilitates expansion, but also enables technically perfect solutions down to the last detail.

Full creativity - on bending and folding

Remove static room boundaries, create spherical room dynamics or set accentuating room elements - current architecture and interior design concepts use round, curved or sculpturally curved surfaces and shapes to create individual, emotional room atmospheres. With plasterboard from Knauf, such shapes can be clad in a perfect and at the same time rational way. Knauf boards can be bent dry or wet, depending on the board thickness and the required radius. Curved walls with the Knauf Sinus profile can be created very easily with the appropriately prepared panels.

For more complex requirements, however, it is advisable to use prefabrication by Knauf, for example folding and bending technology. Knauf Falttechnik consists of molded elements or plasterboard with factory-made mitring. In addition to a dimensionally accurate, rational and economic implementation, this guarantees new freedom for creativity, in harmony with innovative building technology. The Knauf folding technique is ideal for designing with staggered levels, creates perfect transitions and perfectly integrates the separation of the most varied of functions. Whether light coves, indirect light, clean finishing edges, ceiling projections or edge protection without filling: Knauf folding technology can be processed flexibly and economically and enables every design requirement.

The factory-bent profiles from Knauf Biegetechnik and bent molded parts made of plasterboard are usually delivered ready-made to the construction site for ceiling design solutions, or they are bent on site. Impressive interior effects can be achieved with S-bends, segment bends, outside and inside bends as well as those with straight extensions and support cladding. Elements that are bent at the factory and glued in several layers also enable design variants such as wave-shaped curved shells and conical sections. Filling work on the surface is not necessary, as the mold plates already have a smooth surface.

Room-in-room system Knauf Cubo

With the room-in-room system Knauf Cubo, independent room units can be integrated into existing rooms in dry construction with little effort - with high performance values ​​in terms of noise and fire protection. Examples are offices in production halls, escape tunnels, sanitary units in loft apartments or music practice rooms so that neighbors are not disturbed, and much more. In the gallery version, Knauf Cubo can even be walked on and used as additional storage and storage space.

Aquapanel® Cement Board: masters every requirement
