Leading industry innovator and building products company CSR has launched two new digital tools, designed to empower builders, architects and specifiers with confident decision-making throughout their construction journeys.

From selecting the optimum system for a project to understanding the thermal qualities of walls, roofs and floors, the two new online tools, the CSR System Selector and CSR Thermal Calculator offer comprehensive design information and complete system solutions, which are constantly updated with the latest innovations in technology and product developments.

“We have worked hard to deliver comprehensive and easy-to-use platforms that respond to our customers’ needs,” says Gary May, EGM CSR Customer Solutions

CSR System Selector

User-friendly and intuitive, the new CSR System Selector will enable industry experts to quickly and efficiently choose the right building systems for their projects. With a wide range of building solutions in one location it is easier than ever to specify the right systems for commercial and residential projects.

“A primary example of the ongoing commitment CSR provides to its stakeholders, the system selector is an incredibly empowering tool, and will enable builders, architects and specifiers to deliver the highest level of quality, performance and compliance,” says Gary.


Backed by CSR to ensure that each system will satisfy design and Building Code requirements, users will benefit from an extensive portfolio of building products that builders and generations of Australians have come to know and trust, including Gyprock plasterboard, Bradford insulation, PGH bricks and pavers, Monier roof tiles, Cemintel and Himmel Interior Systems.

“We provide unrivalled expertise of how building products work together from wall to wall and roof to floor,” says Gary.

Firmly entrenched as a resource staple within the design and construction community and recognised as one of the most valuable and trusted guides, the Gyprock Red Book is now available via the CSR System Selector tool, showcasing, in digital format, the extensive range across hundreds of Gyprock wall and ceiling systems. 

CSR Thermal Calculator

The CSR Thermal Calculator generates thermal performance calculations for wall, roof and floor systems, ensuring architects and contractors meet their thermal targets. It does this while providing the flexibility to experiment with different system configurations. Users will have peace of mind that the calculations will be compliant to the relevant Australian Standards.

Pushing the boundaries of what is possible in building, each platform is backed by CSR’s trusted name and extensive industry knowledge. “CSR has one of Australia’s largest portfolios of building materials manufacturers for construction of homes and commercial buildings. The new digital tools will be of considerable benefit to experts in the industry looking to secure the best possible outcomes for their customers by providing solutions backed by CSR’s trusted name,” says Gary.
