PLEASE NOTE: This info-sheet relates to installing wall board on timber frames in non-wet areas. For installation on masonry walls, or in wet areas such as bathrooms, laundries, etc, please consult the USG Boral Plasterboard Installation Manual.
To allow for doorways and windows: make the first cuts with a saw then the final cut with a knife.
To make openings for electrical wiring fixtures: measure and mark their location on the plasterboard sheet. Cut a small hole with a keyhole saw. For neat round holes, use a holesaw attached to your drill.
Make sure you countersink the screws just below the wall's surface so they can be filled later, taking care not to break the paper face. A counter-sinking drill bit attachment will prevent overscrewing.
These help to protect external corners from damage.
