Create Something Unique

Create Something Unique

Fibre Reinforced Gypsum

Our Linear Rib are based on a fibre gypsum board which has excellent properties regarding both fire safety and acoustics. The rib is less sensitive to changes in temperature and humidity which in turn maintains the ribs’ linearity over time. All together, this unique combination contributes to a rib suited for applications not only in large areas but also in a wide variety of demanding situations.

A Rib With Many Unique Benefits

When constructing a cladding rib there are many requirements that steer the choice of component materials. Among our first demands were; a strictly plane surface, dimensional stability, fire retardation and acoustic characteristics. These demands effectively eliminate most traditional wood-based choices. However, a rib constructed of highly compressed fibre gypsum incorporates the properties needed to meet fire prevention demands and offers good acoustic characteristics while at the same time offers versatility and aesthetic charm.

Form Stability

Gustafs Linear Ribs with a Fibre Reinforced Gypsum Core, in combination with our unique Capax installation system, guarantees real dimension stability, resulting in 100% straight aligned Ribs over their full lifetime, regardless humidity and temperature changes.

Quick & Concealed Installation

CAPAX is our truly concealed installation system in aluminum which provides you a reliable, quick and cost saving work flow. The ribs and installation fixtures are designed as one system, warranting a perfect aligned result. No tools are needed to assemble the interlocking components. A demountable version is available.

Curved Installation

With Gustafs Linear systems it is extremely easy to create beautiful curved walls and ceilings, or curved intersections between walls and ceilings. Our standard CAPAX installation solutions allow you design with a radius of 0,3 meter or larger, both convex and concave.

Customized Standard

The concept of the Gustafs Linear System is rather to be considered as a customized standard. Many parameters can be adjusted individually before losing the advantages of a standard solution. You can vary the core, the veneer, the colour, the dimensions, open or closed gaps, coloured gaps. Gustafs Linear System can also be used in curved installations. We can assist you with your design wishes and help provide the rib solution with your own personal touch.

The Gypsum core ribs are available in a multitude of thicknesses varying from 13 up to 74 mm and can be supplied in R or S design. The standard width is 38 mm. Using our standard installation method, the gap between the ribs is 12 mm. You can also combine different dimensions.

Surface Design

Gustafs Linear Rib System offers many possibilities to create environments with the highest demands for design and appearance.  We collaborate closely with architects and designers and are attentive to what lies in the future. Our design is constantly evolving as we ­develop different surfaces, such as veneer, textiles, metals, and colors. Choose your surface and desired top finish method to achieve an unique design.

Veneer – Real Wood Surfaces

We offer two choices of genuine veneer, NATURE and GEMINI.

Nature veneers have all the lively variations and character associated with each species whereas Gemini veneers offer an even colour tone and structure to achieve a more harmonious appearance.

Prior to delivery the panels are given a resi­lient and attractive surface finish. The finish is determined by the customer from a choice of lacquered, oiled, stained, pigmented or painted surface. Our lacquer is a 3-layer UV-cured process which is available in a range of gloss finishes.

Lacquered Veneer

Lacquered wooden rib veneer

A clear lacquered finish is by far the most common maintenance-free and durable finish for wooden surfaces. Utilizing a multi-stage UV-lacquering process, our surface finish achieves these demands while aspiring to maintain technical ­aspects such as our fire retardation and environmental goals. Our lacquer is a multi-layer UV-cured process which is available in a range of gloss finishes.

Lacquered Veneer – Pigmentation

White pigmented wooden rib

A pigment can be used to change the colour tone of the veneer on Gustafs Ribs. We have developed a three stage scale of white pigment for veneers. Since various species react differently to the process we recommend a consultation before proceeding with surface finishing.

Painted Veneer

Creative coloured ribs for wall and ceiling panelling

Among the many advantages of a Gustafs Ribs is its plane and even surface. This enables us to create a painted surface finish and at the same time keep the beautiful wooden structure on the surface. We can produce painted surfaces in a multitude of colors in accordance with for example NCS or RAL codes up to a gloss rate of 50.

Oiled Veneer

Oiled Veneer top finish creates a matte and beautiful finish on wooden veneer. Contact us for advice and samples.

Painted in Solid Colours

An alternative to veneer is to paint directly on the rib. Among the many advantages of a Gustafs rib is its plane and even surface. Painting a Gustafs rib enables us to create a painted surface finish which otherwise is extremely difficult to achieve on site. Our Ribs are available in an endless number of colours. And of course, our painted ribs achieve fire classification B-s1,d0.
