Span24 is a 1/2" gypsum board specifically designed to maintain exceptional flatness on ceilings framed 24" o.c. Thinner and lighter than traditional 5/8" panels, it’s also easier to handle and more cost efficient. Stronger than regular 1/2" gypsum, it surpassed the standards for 5/8" material in ASTM sag tests conducted at 90° Fahrenheit and 90% humidity.
- May be installed over wood or metal framing
- Long edges tapered for easier, smoother joint finishing
- Lower cost and lighter weight than 5⁄8" gypsum board
- Requires no special tools or techniques to install
- Available with a minimum of 93% certified recycled gypsum and paper content on a dry-weight basis in accordance with ISO 14021 standards

Gypsum wallboards should be carried, never dragged, to prevent damaging the finished edges. When storing gypsum boards, store them indoors and protect them from weather and direct sunlight. Boards should be stored lying flat and neatly stacked. Care should be taken to prevent sagging or damage to edges, ends and surfaces. Placing boards against framing is not recommended.
