Certainteed's Lightweight Gypsum Board Is Contractor-Friendly
and Certified IAQ Safe
This lightweight gypsum panel is yet another case where the green product is safer AND better than the old fashioned product it replaces. Thanks to some very practical advantages, contractors will likely be eager to give it a try.
CertainTeed Easi-Lite Gypsum Board is as much as 30 percent lighter than conventional gypsum boards. The lightweight design makes the product easier to work with, reducing the day's muscle strain and fatigue.
As additional contractor-friendly features, Easi-Lite gypsum board is easy to score and snap for faster and easier installation. Designed with sag resistance in mind, it is ideal for 1⁄2-inch ceiling applications, allowing contractors to use the same type of board on both interior walls and interior ceilings. Its light weight also makes the wallboard easier to transport and much simpler to stock at the jobsite.
Easi-Lite features a uniform high-strength, sag-resistant gypsum core, making it ideal for ceiling and wall applications in commercial or residential interiors. It is GREENGUARD Children & Schools certified and designated as a low VOC (volatile organic compound) emitting product. In addition, the product's face and back paper are made from 100 percent recycled material.
Easi-Lite gypsum board is now starting to ship on a regional basis, and availability will soon be expanded across North America.
