Saint-Gobain Gyproc Egypt

Head Office: Building #12B04 , Cairo Festival City , Second Floor, New Cairo - Egypt 


Habito is a special board (type D F I R according to EN 520:2009), with an increased density core, where gypsum is mixed with a high quantity of glass fibers; these characteristics give the product a very high level of surface hardness, mechanical resistance and load bearing capacity, even using simple screws for chipboard. It also helps to increase the fire resistance and sound insulation in systems where it is installed. The special paper with a particularly white colour facilitates the finishing operations. The board can be used for the implementation of systems where high mechanical strength is required, as well as load bearing capacity and impact resistance. It is suitable for all building sectors (residential, commercial, etc.).



Workability of a standard plasterboard panel

  • Cutting with simple cutter, Jointing operation to obtain the surface ready to receive the finishing
  • Easy cutting “Engrave-Fold-Tear” which reduce the installing operations
  • Fixing to the metal frame using the special screws HABITO
  • Fixing to the wood frame using the special screws HABITO steel staples
  • Possibility to fix “board on board”
