British Gypsum has unveiled a new and innovative wall solution, which is targeted at homeowners, that can support 15kg loads, offers installation flexibility, greater durability and improved acoustic performance.
Lifestyle Wall, available from builders’ merchants from 1 September, has been created through the development of a new plasterboard, Gyproc Habito, which has a reinforced core making it five times stronger than standard plasterboard. Gyproc Habito is installed like standard plasterboard but allows homeowners to fit items such as shelves, curtain poles, picture hooks and TV brackets without needing to use specialist fixings or pattressing – a single no. 10 wood screw can support 15kg of weight, allowing items to be fixed with confidence.
Sarah White, residential market manager at British Gypsum, explained: “The super strength of Lifestyle Wall means fixtures and fittings can simply be screwed straight into the wall wherever the homeowner chooses.”
