ToughRock® Span 24® Lite-Weight Ceiling Board

Lighter in weight than traditional ToughRock® Span 24® Ceiling Board, this sag-resistant ceiling board is easier to handle and install than a standard weight board, and easier to transport.

This lite-weight gypsum ceiling board has a dimensionally stable, noncombustible gypsum core (as described and tested in accordance with ASTM E136). The core has been reinforced with glass fibers, increasing strength and sag resistance.


  • Designed for direct mechanical attachment (screws or nails) to wood or metal framing and receive joint treatment, paint, wall covering, or textured coatings.
  • The surfaces of both faces and on the long edges are 100% recycled paper. The front face paper is ivory; the back face paper is grey. The long edges are tapered and the ends are square cut.


ToughRock® Span 24® Lite-Weight Ceiling Board is a cost-effective alternative to 5/8" (15.9 mm) gypsum board, when attached to ceiling joists or trusses spaced 24" (610 mm) o.c. and where water-based textures are applied. Use ToughRock® Span 24® Lite-Weight Ceiling Board in ceilings in new building construction or renovations.
