The MF ceiling system can accept some degree of loading and is the more traditional form of application. The system can utilise one or more layers of a wide range of boards:
- Standard Wallboard also known as plasterboard
- Moisture Resistant Board for moist or humid areas
- Sound Board also known as dB board or Soundbloc for areas requiring noise reduction
- Fire Board for areas requiring fire resistance
The complete range of Gyptone Quattro acoustic boards can also be used with the MF ceiling system depending on the performance required. The boards are fixed onto a lightweight metal framework of MF ceiling channels and MF perimeter channels, often with a standard wallboard border.
The lightweight galvanised grid is suspended by either strap hangers or angle sections fixed to the structural soffit with soffit cleats.
The tapered edge boards can be taped and jointed using Jointing Compounds and Accessories. Alternatively, a 2 to 3mm skim smoothing coat can be applied to achieve a more traditional plaster finish.
