Lafarge Plasterboard is launching a new multipurpose gypsum board, GTEC LaDura, that offers outstanding sound, fire, impact and moisture performance. The board, which contains 8% mass of responsibly-sourced wood fibres is fully recyclable , offers outstanding impact, fire, moisture and fire performance and provides far superior finishing options than other boards on the market.

GTEC LaDura, the latest innovation in the GTEC Performance range of boards, lives up to its name by being stronger, harder and heavier than standard plasterboards due to its high density and hard wood fibres.

GTEC LaDura is ideal for use in high impact areas such as schools and hospitals, can be used for timber frame construction and is capable of withstanding heavy point loads for severe duty walls. Used extensively throughout Europe, Ecobuild, the world’s biggest event for sustainable design, construction and the built environment, will see the official launch of this outstanding board solution to the UK market.

Simon Scrase, Product Manager comments: The launch of GTEC LaDura is a real milestone for our UK business, providing a truly differentiated board solution for our customers. Its extensive success throughout Europe makes this a very exciting proposition for Lafarge Plasterboard which will deliver real and measurable benefits to a wide range of the construction market”

The launch is just one feature of Lafarge’s presence at this year’s Ecobuild. The company will also be bringing together all three UK business units, Plasterboard, Cement and Aggregates & Concrete to highlight its universal commitment to sustainable construction and development.

This will be demonstrated by a unique structure on the Lafarge feature stand, N1040, a spiral based on the Fibonacci sequence, incorporating products from all business units and forming a physical representation of Lafarge’s story of successful sustainability.

Lafarge Plasterboard will be unveiling the new GTEC LaDura at the Ecobuild show (1 – 3 March 2011) on Stand 1050, with technical experts on hand to answer questions and demonstrate its application in more detail.
