Guide Marked Gypsum Board
National Gypsum Company has introduced a gypsum board product that has guide marks to identify the location of studs, joists, rafters, or trusses. The product will make it easier to find the location of framing members and make accurate cuts without having to draw as many lines as with conventional gypsum board. Marks are printed on the paper of the gypsum board at distances commonly used for spacing of framing members.
Gold Bond brand GridMarX is the trademark name of National Gypsum Company's gypsum board product with guide marks. The marks consist of an "X" printed on the paper surface in rows parallel to the long dimension of the board. The rows begin at each edge and at 16, 24, and 32 inches. The "X"s are spaced 4 inches apart in each row. The guide marks serve as a reference point for framing members in both horizontal and vertical installations. The manufacturer claims the marks are easily covered with paint and will not bleed through.
