British Gypsum has revealed Lifestyle Wall, an innovative wall solution that gives homeowners and designers of commercial spaces greater design flexibility and durability.
Installed just like standard plasterboard, Gyproc Habito allows users to fit items such as shelves, curtain poles, picture hooks and TV brackets without specialist fixings or pattressing. With the new plasterboard, a single no. 10 woodscrew can support 15kg of weight, giving end users the freedom to update spaces when they choose, as fixtures and fittings can be easily moved or installed.
Sarah White, Residential Market Manager at British Gypsum, explained: “Buildings and rooms need to adapt to the changing requirements of their occupants, so flexibility is critical on any project. Until now, walls have sometimes appeared like fixed, static substrates, but with Lifestyle Wall we’ve created a new standard of performance which is truly adaptable.”
In addition, the core strength of Lifestyle Wall means it can withstand repeated bumps and knocks common in busy, high-traffic rooms.
Sarah continued: “Through the benefits of easy fixing, designers and installers can now offer their clients walls that give them so much more. Plus, as it’s a single system, there’s no need for multiple products, which streamlines both the supply and the installation process.”
To achieve Lifestyle Wall performance, standard plasterboard should be replaced by Gyproc Habito.
