Gold Bond® Exterior Soffit Board
Gold Bond® BRAND Exterior Soffit Board has a specially treated gypsum core covered on both sides with 100% recycled water-repellent paper formed to the Gold Bond Sta-Smooth edge.
Exterior Soffit Board is a fire-resistive gypsum panel, designed to provide the extra resistance to moisture and sagging required to meet outdoor conditions. It is typically used for sheltered exterior ceiling and soffit areas, such as covered parking areas, walkways and marquees in commercial construction and, in residential construction, carports, breezeways and open porches. Soffit Board is limited to ceiling use only. Do not use on sidewalls or vertical surfaces.
For ceilings, the board is secured to wood framing or furring in the conventional manner, or to metal framing either by direct attachment or by suspended metal furring.
- Sag- and warp-resistant. Exterior Soffit Board offers strong sag resistance even after repeated wet-dry cycles. Its gypsum core resists sagging while the sturdy face and back paper are water-repellent.
- Quick, dry installation. Exterior Soffit Board offers the speed and economy of regular drywall construction: quick score-and-snap cutting, no sawing or special tools, rapid screw or nail attachment, openings simply made where and when required, during or after application, furring and trim common to conventional construction.
- Fire-resistive. A noncombustible gypsum core provides added fire safety.
