British Gypsum is offering homeowners a new level of flexibility to their living spaces with its innovative Gyproc Habito plasterboard. The super-strong plasterboard provides enhanced levels of strength, durability and fixability.
Gyproc Habito is radically different than other plasterboards on the market and supports 15kg from a single no.10 woodscrew. This means homeowners can secure items such as shelves, curtain poles, picture hooks and TV brackets onto their wall without the need for specialist fixings or wall plugs.
The superior new plasterboard is helping self-builders and renovators raise the quality of interior walls on their projects and build better homes that will stand the test of time. By taking a fabric first approach, self-builders have the opportunity to design in materials that exceed the everyday basics.
With its specially developed reinforced core, Gyproc Habito plasterboard can withstand significantly more wear and tear and impact damage than standard plasterboard products. In fact, Gyproc Habito is five times stronger than standard plasterboard offering superior resistance to everyday knocks and scrapes. Designing in this level of durability will deliver a home that is built to last.
One of the key benefits of Gyproc Habito to the homeowner is it allows them to screw fixtures and fittings straight into the wall wherever they choose, requiring no drill or specialists fixings. This makes those DIY jobs all the easier with less damage to walls and reduced repair and maintenance work when changing things around.
Speaking on the product, Residential Sector Manager at British Gypsum, Sarah White comments: “We’ve engineered Gyproc Habito plasterboard to support the way modern homeowners live their lives. The secret to its effectiveness lies in its innovative board technology, which provides a considerably enhanced performance compared with standard plasterboard. It’s creating new possibilities for homeowners who want flexible spaces that can be modified and changed over time.”
