Gyproc Habito

Gyproc Habito

12.5mm Gyproc Habito plasterboard features an engineered core which provides enhanced levels of strength, durability and fixability.

Gyproc Habito plasterboard provides more strength than standard plasterboard, with a 5mm (no. 10) woodscrew capable of supporting 15kg without the need for specialist fixings or pattressing.

Its additional durability means walls are more resistant to damage and stay looking smarter for longer. This can result in a reduction of regular maintenance, saving ongoing operational costs.

Gyproc Habito provides the ability to fix heavy and difficult items such as shelves, radiators and TVs, into place without any need for drills or specialist fixings; the strength of the board allows fixing straight into the wall surface. This reduces the need for pre-planned, pre-installed pattresing, not only saving on installation time, it can reduce the overall cost of build. It also means that interiors can be redesigned time and time again, making it an ideal solution for applications where there is a need to regularly update – such as in retail environments
