Creating a healthy home environment for clients will soon become easier with the launch of the revolutionary hypoallergenic plasterboard, Gyprock Sensitive.
With an estimated 2.3 million Australians living with asthma, and one in three suffering allergies, Gyprock Sensitive will be a welcome addition to any renovated property or new build.
Gyprock Sensitive, a first for the Australian residential market, is a 10mm plasterboard offering enhanced mould resistance and improved moisture resistance. With mould one of the most common triggers for asthma and allergies, Gyprock Sensitive is a superior choice for walls and ceilings throughout your client's home.
This unique plasterboard is mould resistant due to a powerful but gentle antifungal agent throughout its core, which penetrates the paper and coating. The plasterboard core also contains a unique wax emulsion which makes it resistant to moisture.
A recent study commissioned by Gyprock found that 35% of Australian households surveyed have experienced mould, with the bedroom being the second most affected room in the house, after the bathroom.
Today's homes are designed and built to be more energy efficient and often use engineered materials. These factors can result in lower ventilation and increased indoor air pollutants, making the modern home a potential incubator for common allergy triggers.
Increased steam and humidity provide perfect conditions for mould and mildew growth, making Gyprock Sensitive an ideal solution for wet areas such as the bathroom and laundry.
Gyprock Sensitive is the first and only residential plasterboard to be approved by the National Asthma Council Australia's Sensitive Choice® program as a better choice for asthma and allergy sufferers.
Boasting low volatile organic compounds (VOC) and Good Environmental Choice Australia accreditation, Gyprock Sensitive guarantees the same great quality as with all Gyprock products. Available nationally through Gyprock Trade centres and wherever Gyprock products are sold.
Gyprock EC08™ Complete, for commercial projects, is also a Sensitive Choice approved product.
