Before installing the plasterboard to the SRP™ wall system, use the Preparation and Planning Checklist to ensure structural integrity of the wall, satisfactory result, economical installation and minimal waste.

Any damaged items, or SRP™ Studs with additional site drilled service holes which are outside the requirements of this website [i.e. they may be larger than 15mm diameter, closer than 300mm centres, or not drilled in line with existing holes] should be removed and replaced when and where applicable, prior to installing the plasterboard.
