Gold medal for Habito at 2017 innovation competition

Habito plasterboard and drywall by Saint-Gobain Gyproc wins gold medal for innovation in construction

Ramy Jabbour from Saint-Gobain, Paris, is awarded a gold medal in the Interior Finishing category at Concours de I’Innovation 2017

Saint-Gobain Gyproc’s Habito brand was recently presented with a gold medal at Concours de I’Innovation 2017, an innovation competition held in France.

The competition, which highlights trends and innovations in construction, is the flagship event of the Mondial du Bâtiment, a showcase of exhibitions and trade shows that focus on materials and solutions in the building industry.

Habito plasterboards won gold in the Interior Finishing category for its impact resistance, acoustic performance, and load bearing and fixing capability.

“In South African, we typically think about plasterboard going hand-in-hand with office partitions,” says Heidi Oliver, product manager at Saint-Gobain Gyproc, “but the material can do so much more.”

She goes on to explain that Habito plasterboard has the strength of bricks along with all benefits of drywall such as flexibility, as well thermal and acoustic aiding properties.

The product will also be on display at the Saint-Gobain Gyproc stand at the Bâtiment trade show held in Paris from November 6 to 10 this year.
