Damage-proof your walls with a strong plasterboard

Some walls require extra strength and durability. Areas of high footfall – such as schools, hospital and offices – are subject to both high levels of wear and tear and potential impact damage from persons or objects such as wheelchairs and pushchairs. 

In residential properties, a stronger board is useful in places such as hallways and playrooms or any other areas prone to the minor dents and blemishes caused by everyday life.

Areas where a strong plasterboard is required

LaDura Board

Our strongest plasterboard is LaDura Board. We have added wood particles to a high density gypsum core to create a lightweight board which does not just meet ‘Severe’ duty rating criteria; it also meets fire, acoustic and moisture performance. It is our ultimate performance board.

“Our hallway has traditionally been a dumping ground for shoes, coats, buggies and all the things we grab at the last minute when we’re leaving the house.

When we were bought our latest project, we took the opportunity to invest in a really strong board for our hallway that could withstand the wear and tear of the three kids! My partner works in construction and had used LaDura on a commercial project, so whilst there’s not much we can do about scuffing or marking the paintwork, the underlying wall is going to stay good and strong.”
