ATLANTA, GA -- The specification of assemblies using Georgia-Pacific Gypsum products just got easier for architects and specifiers, with the company's launch of its latest online tool -- a searchable Assemblies Library.
The Georgia-Pacific Gypsum Assemblies Library is a searchable database that provides detailed information, illustrations and performance characteristics for a variety of wall systems and assemblies using gypsum wallboards, sheathing, shaftliner and backer boards from Georgia-Pacific Gypsum. It is the latest enhancement to the free online Georgia-Pacific Gypsum Tool Box, which gives architects, contractors, building owners and facility managers the tools and information needed to make decisions and increase efficiency throughout design and construction. Visitors may access the Assemblies Library at www.gp.com/toolbox.
"Given the vast number of assembly and system choices and increasingly complicated building code requirements, architects and specifiers need additional tools that will enable them to efficiently design and specify building construction or renovation projects," said Nicole Lipson, senior marketing manager, Georgia-Pacific Gypsum. "We encourage architects and specifiers to use our new searchable Assemblies Library and the other assets in the online Georgia-Pacific Gypsum Tool Box."
The Assemblies Library allows users to easily search among, choose from and download information on assemblies that feature one or more Georgia-Pacific Gypsum products. The Assemblies Library allows for searches conducted by categories, including but not limited to:
Hourly fire rating
Sound Transmission Class (STC) rating
Fire test number
Sound test number.
The searchable Assemblies Library complements other tools within the Georgia-Pacific Gypsum Tool Box, including LEED® Calculation Tools for U.S. and Canada; Online Architectural and Roofing Binders; and a Residential Wall Systems Comparison Tool, among many others.
Since launching the fiberglass mat gypsum panel category more than 25 years ago, Georgia-Pacific Gypsum has installed millions of square feet of its Dens® brand fiberglass mat gypsum products in the construction of new and renovated commercial and residential buildings.
