This program explores the evolution of drywall ceilings, acoustical ceilings, and the innovation of monolithic acoustical ceiling systems.

It includes an introduction to the history of gypsum plaster, and the invention of the gypsum wallboard panel. The evolution of ceilings, and the standards used to gauge performance of ceilings will be discussed.

The audience will learn where, when, and how to specify monolithic acoustical drywall ceilings.
