A general-purpose, ceiling lining system suitable for most internal applications. Can be used in all types of buildings from residential properties to large commercial developments, and is equally suited to both new build and refurbishment. The system is compatible with, and uses common components of, GypLyner™ UNIVERSAL wall lining and GypLyner™ ENCASE steel encasement systems.

The ceiling comprises a lightweight metal framework formed from Gypframe GL1 Lining Channels, which are fixed to the structural soffit or to timber joists. The ceiling boards are screw-fixed to the framework to form the ceiling lining.

A range of Isowool insulations is available, or stone mineral wool (by others) can be used to provide acoustic/ thermal insulation above the boards.

Not suitable for use in areas subjected to continuous damp or humid conditions. Specify MR (moisture resistant) plasterboards in intermittent wet areas.


  • Fire resistance: 30–90 minutes.
  • Sound insulation: 52–63 dB.
