Claire McDonald, from creativemass, commented: “When designing this project, our aim was to allow the family to have as much flexibility as possible which is why we opted for British Gypsum’s Gyproc Habito plasterboard. The strength and versatility of the plasterboard allows for huge amounts of adaptability for the family both now and in the future, as they will be able to move their artwork – some of which is extremely heavy - around and rearrange the collection as it grows and changes.”
Gyproc Habito is part of British Gypsum’s Homeowner range and is a plasterboard with a reinforced core, making it five times stronger than regular plasterboard. The product is installed in the same way as standard plasterboard, but can support up to 15kg with a single number 10 woodscrew. The super-strength solution means the homeowners can hang their heavier paintings to the wall along with items such as TVs, shelves and mirrors, without specialist fixings.
Claire continued: “We work quite closely with our construction team and their feedback on installing the product was extremely positive. They noted how straightforward the process was and said despite it taking a little longer than regular plasterboard, it was no more complicated and comes with many more benefits. The team all agreed that they would be happy to work with the product again. This is definitely testament to how easy and hassle free Gyproc Habito plasterboard is to work with.”
