Siniat Wallboards should be stored internally on a flat surface. If indoor storage is not an option, ensure the correct waterproofing materials have been applied and the boards are off the ground. Do not use the boards if they are allowed to get wet. In addition to this, do not put any excess weight onto the boards as they are made from Gypsum and can damage due to too much pressure.

How to install Siniat GTEC Wallboard
Siniat GTEC Boards can be installed in a range of methods. These methods include:
- Metal and Timber partition wall applications
- Wall linings
- Ceiling applications
Installing Siniat Wallboard plasterboard requires careful planning and precise execution to achieve a professional finish. We have written a step by step guide to show the installation process. Please note, we always recommend that you consult a building professional when installing plasterboard. The tools you may need to install Siniat plasterboard can be seen below:
- Metal or wooden studs
- Measuring tape
- Utility knife
- Screwdriver or drill
- Drywall adhesive
- Jointing tape
- Jointing compound
- Corner beads (if needed)
- Safety goggles
- Dust mask
Measuring your wallboard
Firstly, you should ensure that your installation area is clean, dry, and free from any debris. Measure the area where you will install the plasterboard to determine the size of the boards needed. Plan the layout, taking into consideration the location of studs and joints.
Cutting the Plasterboard
The wallboard can be easily scored with a utility knife and then snapped along the line for a clean cut. Simply mark where you want to cut and snap off the board you want to install. Make sure to wear safety goggles and a dust mask to protect yourself from dust and debris.
Fitting your Siniat Wallboard
Position the GTEC wallboard against the wall or ceiling, ensuring it aligns with the studs. Siniat Wallboard plasterboard has one ivory coloured side (front) and one plain side (back). Ensure that the front side is facing outwards. Once positioned in place, you can secure the plasterboard to the studs using screws. Space the screws every 6-8 inches along the edges and 12 inches in the field.
Quality check your Siniat GTEC wallboard
Use a level to ensure that the plasterboard is perfectly straight and level. Adjust as needed, and tighten the screws securely without over-tightening, which may damage the plasterboard.
Decorating your Siniat Standard GTEC Wallboard
Cover the seams and screw holes with a layer of jointing compound using a trowel. Embed jointing tape into the wet compound along the seams. Allow it to dry completely.
After the first layer of jointing compound has dried, sand it smooth and apply additional layers as needed until the seams are smooth and invisible. Sand between each layer for a seamless finish.
Once the jointing compound is dry, sand the entire surface to achieve a smooth finish. Siniat recommends that you apply a drywall primer. Once this is done, you can now paint or finish the plasterboard as desired.
Cleaning up after you have installed plasterboard
After you have installed your Siniat Wallboard, you should clean up any debris, dust, and leftover materials from the installation area. Please note that leftover materials could potentially be used for another job. If you no longer have use for the leftovers, then we recommend that you dispose of this safely.
Dispose of plasterboard in a responsible manner by either taking it to a household waste recycling centre for safe handling or arranging for collection by a licensed waste carrier who can ensure it is properly recycled and restored.
For more detailed information, we suggest you follow the manufacturer's specific instructions, as they may have unique recommendations for their products. Proper installation and finishing will ensure a professional end result.
