Contractor Helps David Wilson Homes Make Quality Home With Gyproc Habito

Date: 18 March 2016

Plastering and drylining contractor, Atlas Plastering, worked with David Wilson Homes to trial Gyproc Habito in its new show home at one of its latest developments in Burbage, Leicestershire.

After learning about British Gypsum’s Gyproc Habito – a brand new plasterboard that gives improved design flexibility and greater durability – Atlas Plastering pitched the system to the national housebuilder for trial at The Meadows, an exclusive new development of 34 traditionally designed homes.

Gyproc Habito is a plasterboard with a reinforced core, making it five times stronger than its standard counterparts. 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 homeowners the freedom to update spaces when they choose, as fixtures and fittings can be easily moved or installed.

To support Atlas Plastering and David Wilson Homes in getting the most out of the system, British Gypsum ran a training course prior to work commencing and also regularly visited the site to support the contractor and wider trades.
