Gyproc® DriLyner -Drywall masonry lining systems

Key facts

  • Minimal loss in-room space due to a typical 15mm drylining cavity plus the thickness of the Gyproc® gypsum board and any finish applied.
  • Allows minor surface irregularities to be taken out within the drylining cavity formed by the gypsum adhesive dabs.
  • Services can be incorporated with a reduced level of chasing enhanced acoustic performance.


  • Provide high-quality internal linings. They cater to a variety of masonry wall constructions. Linings are bonded using a wide range of adhesive options depending on the substrate type. These ranges of systems provide solutions for all types of buildings both new-build and refurbishment.

  4. Floor slap
  5. Silicone sealant


  1. A continuous coat of Gyproc® ProCote is applied to the entire surface of the external and separating walls (if required) and allowed to set. To improve acoustic performance, this should not be trowelled smooth.
  2. The board edge positions are marked on the wall, and Gyproc DriLyner® Adhesive is applied to the wall in dabs to support the boards.
  3. A continuous fillet / ribbon of Gyproc DriLyner® Adhesive is applied to the wall perimeter and around all services and openings as board fixing proceeds. This is particularly important if the lining is designed to act as an air barrier to achieve building airtightness.
  4. Boards are ‘tapped’ into position.
  5. Lift tight to the ceiling using a foot lifter and support until the adhesive sets.
  6. Further boards are installed, lightly butted together, to complete the lining.
