Habito uses patent (s) pending technology to provide you with inbuilt fixing performance in a plasterboard.
On a single layer Habito wall, A no. 10 wood screw will provide a safe working load (SWL) of up to 30kg per screw (safety factor of 2). We recommend that you follow the manufacturer’s guidance as to the number of fixtures required to mount a fixture.
Example: If a TV weighs 30kg with its bracket and the bracket accepts four fixings, you should use four screws, even though this provides 120kg safe working load.
No. We recommend that a standard single thread No.10, 5mm wood screw to be used. Fixings with cross threads for chipboard will reduce fixing performance. You also need to ensure the wood screw does not have a threadless shank. The length of the screw used should be sufficient to pass through the fixture being mounted and through the board. Be aware of the substrate the board is fixed to and always check for pipes and electrical cables prior to fixing.
Yes, the fixing capability on each screw will vary if number of layers of habito change.
We state that Habito has a safe working load of 30kg when used with a no.10 wood screw. The safe working load is calculated by this fixings failure point divided by a factor of two.
Fixing screws can be taken out, and then screwed back into the same hole without decrease in pull out performance. This is because, when first screwed a thread is formed within gypsum core. Re-inserting using this thread therefore has the same performance.
A variety of different load types are possible , so it is vital to assess the suitability for a project.
Same as tiling procedure applicable for any standard paper – faced gypsumboard, Habito will hold tiling system upto 32 kg/m2 (inclu. Adhesive & grout).
Yes laminate can be fixed on habito wall, we recommend using Rubber based adhesive.
Same as any other Gypsum board as recommended under Gyproc guidelines of Jointing & Finishing.
Yes, Habito is GRIHA & IGBC Greenpro certified
