A Pre-Engineered, Customized Solution
The USG drywall suspension system offered a precise and efficient solution. The USG drywall suspension system is a pre-engineered system that allows contractors to create unique, curved, domed and conventional flat drywall ceilings without cutting or curving support structures in the field. Since it is easy to install, a lower-skilled workforce were required to install it, while still achieving a high-quality finish.
The hanging system was composed mainly of wire hangers, however threaded rods were custom made and installed as well to give the structure more rigidity and stability in order to achieve structural integrity. Hangers were anchored to the top concrete dome structure with special accessories. The installed hangers carried the curved main tees and other parts of the dome.
USG Boral Sheetrock® All Purpose Joint Compound was used to finish the joints of the installed wallboard.
- Installation guideline provided a great tool for on-site training for installation crews
- Quality finish by using USG Boral Sheetrock® All Purpose Joint Compound
- Lighter-weight solution
- Design, engineering and commercial support provided to the contractor over a period of 1 yr
- Pre-engineered factory-curved solution significantly reduced field labor
The resulting feature is one of the largest domes created using a drywall suspension system and USG Boral Sheetrock® All Purpose Joint Compound in the country. The resulting feature will hopefully impress thousands of visitors.
