See below how Gypsum Ceilings by Gyproc can contribute to WELL criteria: Thermal comfort
To promote occupants’ productivity, comfort, and well-being by providing quality thermal comfort.
The project must meet the requirements for both thermal comfort design and thermal comfort control.
The building must be designed (heating, ventilating, air-conditioning systems, building envelope) to meet the requirements of specific standards on thermal comfort (ASHRAE standard 55-2010 or ISO and CEN standards).
In addition, individual thermal comfort controls must be provided for at least 50% of individual occupant spaces. For all shared multi-occupant spaces, a group thermal comfort control can be installed. Thermal comfort controls allow occupants, whether in individual spaces or shared multi-occupant spaces, to adjust at least one of the following in their local environment: air temperature, radiant temperature, air speed, and humidity.

Gyproc’s range of our thermal systems and lightweight gypsum plaster can help reduce buildings energy consumption.
- Wall lining systems (based on adhesive or light weight metal components), ceiling systems and systems incorporating glass mineral wool can help meet local regulations, building regulation standards and LEED requirements, in respect to the thermal performance of the building structure.
- Ceilings and wall lining systems insulated with mineral wool or thermal boards can help to reduce heat loss from a building in cool climates and help to reduce heat gains in hot climates.
- Our products can contribute significantly to drywall and masonry constructions in achieving high levels of airtightness in buildings.
- Gyproc’s range of laminates are extensively used in both new and existing buildings to provide internal lining and insulation in one fixing operation. Drywall systems incorporating thermal laminates provide room-located insulation resulting in comfortable conditions, primarily when the interior heating is regulated.
Gyproc products are specially formulated to achieve high levels of air tightness, contributing to a better energy performance
Gypsum plasterboard system
By combining insulation products and plasterboard, we can achieve an advanced level of thermal insulation.
