Drywall is one of the standards in today's construction industry and is suitable for home users because of its ease of use and time. An important part of this lightweight construction method is the use of prefabricated gypsum fiber boards known as Fermacell. These are offered in different formats at different prices and are ideal for your own home.

Under the name Fermacell gypsum fiberboards of the company Xella International SA from the German Duisburg are offered, which are not only available for large companies. The panels consist exclusively of recycled paper fibers and gypsum, which are mixed with water and then pressed and shaped under high pressure. The result is gypsum fiberboards that can be laid and fixed without any problems and without any damp building materials such as plaster or mortar. Even if you have no experience in house building, renovations or renovations with the plates can be greatly facilitated. Depending on the size of the room, a different format of the panels is needed to implement the project.
