Saint-Gobain India Pvt. Ltd – Gyproc Business today announced the launch of Habito™, its revolutionary gypsum board. It will create new benchmarks in Drywall solution by offering enhanced performance in load fixing strength, robustness and acoustics. This innovation is designed to give customers greater flexibility with their space and ease the process of loading on drywall.
Traditional building constructions have a massive impact on the environment. As urban construction is expected to rise, there will be an increase in demand for sustainable construction methods such as gypsum based drywalls. Habito™ the latest innovation of Gyproc India, will take the lead on sustainable habitat solutions in future combined with performance.
Habito™, a new variant in the drywall space, is installed like any other gypsum board, but allows users to fix items, such as TV brackets, cabinets, white board, lacquered glass, wall hanging instruments or any other heavy items. This can be done without specialist fixings or using ply support, by simply fixing the screw directly into the wall. It delivers load carrying capacity of 30 kg on each screw due to its dense core and patented technology – which means 120 kg can be safely mounted using only 4 screws. Apart from fixing strength it absorbs knocks and bangs and dramatically reduces wear and tear on wall.
Commenting on Habito™ launch, Mr. Venkat Subramanian – Regional CEO – Construction Products India & Managing Director – Gyproc India said, “We, at Gyproc India, aim to spearhead innovation and technology-driven solutions with high-performance and superior products. Habito™ the latest innovation by Gyproc offers customer enhanced solutions in drywall offerings. Installed just like any other gypsum board, Habito™ drywall combines the strength and fixing capacity of masonry or ply with the benefits of drywall.”
Commenting on the launch, Sudeep Kolte, VP Sales & Marketing at Gyproc India says: “Buildings and living spaces need to adapt to the changing requirements of their occupants, hence flexibility is critical. Habito™ Drywall has been created with a new standard of performance that delivers superior well-being to occupants as compared to traditional options like brick and block or ply.”
The occupants or homeowners look for ease of loading, strength and flexibility from walls, with Habito™ we will be able to deliver the same in Commercial office space, Healthcare, Educational Institutes, Retail segments & also Residential. As a drywall solution, Habito™ delivers faster and lighter weight construction combined with strength of brick or block wall.
