Purchasing a new build property is a significant investment and buyers expect their homes to look pristine for a long time. However, walls can be vulnerable to damage from glancing impacts or accidental scratches, gouges or chips - especially in high traffic areas such as hallways.
Housing developers can improve the durability of the walls in the homes they build by selecting an appropriate plaster finish. British Gypsum’s ThistlePro® DuraFinish offers 60% more impact resistance than standard plaster, helping to keep walls looking smooth and clean. This hard-wearing finishing plaster shrugs off scratches, chips and bumps so that walls stay in good condition for longer.
By installing ThistlePro DuraFinish in hallways and other areas that experience high traffic or spaces that are prone to wear and tear, such as children’s playrooms, developers can build better homes with increased longevity.
