Gyprock launches their new System Selector
Reflections Tower 2, Queensland which used Gyprock‟s Strata Wall System.

CSR Gyprock‟s innovative DesignLINK System Selector features new functionality to make it even easier for architects and designers to quickly and efficiently choose the right building system for their projects.

The online solution offers superior database functionality that allows Gyprock to continually input and update system information and specifications; a feature that ensures the system is always current and more up to date than the printed material found in Gyprock‟s industry leading Red Book.

The tool offers a quick way of utilising a database of information on wall, floor, roof, ceiling and column systems, which is maintained by Architect and DesignLINK Manager, Angus Kell and his team.

“The Gyprock System Selector was the first to market with this online solution and provides a more efficient method of narrowing down search criteria and navigating architects and designers to the system that best suits their requirement, rather than searching through the Red Book,” Angus said. The tool also offers the feature of durability indicators against each system, including impact resistance, capacity to take load, how the system weathers, water protection and serviceability of finishes.

There are two main paths for identifying the best systems for an architects‟ desired application which include:

  • Specifications path – when known, the Specifications path allows users to input technical details and specific requirements (e.g. fire rating, acoustic rating, load capacity etc).
  • Construction Requirements path – a broader, conversation style process that is designed for those who may not familiar with the Gyprock Red Book or other building requirements or may just want a broader range of options to consider. It contains five questions to assist in navigating the user to the appropriate systems.

The DesignLINK System Selector offers comprehensive results with links to drawings (DWG and Revit files when available), installation manuals and specifications, as well as the option for systems to be emailed to the user.

“Developed to suit the needs of the Australian Building Industry, all outputs of the DesignLINK System Selector are „approval ready‟ and are backed by fire and acoustic reports and opinions in accordance with the BCA and relevant Australian Standards,” said Angus.
