Abuse & Impact Resistant Gypsum Board
Made from durable materials to protect walls from damage
Abuse & Impact Resistant drywall is ideal for interior walls in areas like hotel lobbies, apartments, dorms, hallways and stairwells, garages, gyms, and classrooms. Essentially, it’s ideal in any high-traffic space, or where damage-prone activities occur. Protecting these spaces with material stronger than standard gypsum board will save on time and costly repairs.
