About

Continental Rapid Deco Level 5 skim-coated drywall is a gypsum board pre-finished with a specially formulated skim-coat material to facilitate finishing to a Level 5 finish. This skim coat is factory-applied to provide a consistent and uniform finish.

Rapid Deco Level 5 skim-coated drywall is installed in the same manner as traditional drywall and finished with Continental's Rapid Deco Level 5 joint compound to easily and quickly produce a Level 5 finish. (Please refer to the Continental Rapid Deco Level 5 joint compound submittal sheet for technical information).

Rapid Deco Level 5 skim-coated drywall is designed for use in applications that require direct mechanical attachment to wood or metal wall or ceiling framing, or attachment to existing surfaces using fasteners or adhesives. May also be used as a thermal barrier in roof assemblies when specified by the roofing manufacturer.

Fire Resistance

While Rapid Deco Level 5 skim-coated drywall has some inherent fire-resistant characteristics, this product should not be used to provide the levels of fire resistance required by various building codes and standards. For fire resistance, use Continental Rapid Deco Level 5 Type X skim-coated drywall. When properly sealed and used in a certified sound-rated assembly, Rapid Deco Level 5 skim-coated drywall will contribute to the required sound transmission classification (STC) values.

  • Hotel lobbies and interior public spaces
  • Board rooms and conference rooms
  • Office atriums and hallways
