Now there’s a wall that can hold its own.

Imagine a wall that does its own heavy lifting. Strong enough to hold incredible weight on a single standard screw. With no stud- finding, pre- drilling or special fasteners required. It’s here. And it will change the way we live with walls. Apologies to stud finders and wall anchors — but the wall revolution was long overdue.

Home building and renovation bring great expectations

With all the decisions involved, it can be easy to overlook the walls. Most homebuyers don’t even realize they have a choice. After all, walls are background – behind the paint, the wallpaper, the molding, and the decor. But that’s exactly why wall choice is so important. It’s the background to everything. It shapes and defines the room. And it’s a choice they live with for the life of their home.

Habito is a wall worthy of a lifetime commitment. It combines the strength and substance of old-fashioned plaster with the convenience of drywall. Habito is more than just durable drywall. It’s a whole new concept in walls.

The added density of Habito helps to prevent sound transmission between rooms. It’s another benefit of trading up to a premium wall – the premium sound of a well-built, quiet room.

It can hold up to 30 lbs on a single #10 wood screw fastened directly to the wall. No stud finder. No predrilling. No wall anchors or special fasteners.
