Fixing and cutting
Magply not only cuts better, but the boards are not prone to cracking or splitting if they are installed with pressurised nail guns. Magply can be easily cut to size on site using the score and snap method. Using a pencil, mark the required size and score along the pencil line suing a utility knife and straight edge ensuring you cut through the reinforcing mesh.
