Lafarge Announces LiftLite Gypsum Wallboard

Lafarge North America announces LiftLite, its new family of lightweight wallboards formulated to be significantly lighter than standard gypsum wallboard allowing for easier and faster installation as well as reducing strain and fatigue on the jobsite. LiftLite has excellent sag resistance and can therefore be used on both walls and ceilings eliminating the need to inventory two different types of wallboards.

LiftLite is made with 99% recycled content and is designated as a low volatile compound (VOC) emitting product through the achievement of the GREENGUARD® Children and SchoolsSM certification. As a result, LiftLite can assist with the attainment of credits for projects seeking LEED certification. LiftLite offers building professionals the same great performance as traditional wallboard but with improved transportation and installation cost savings. It is easier to score and snap and produces less dust on the jobsite.

"Health and Safety is a top priority at Lafarge and we are proud to offer a lightweight wallboard that reduces strain and fatigue of drywall contractors and allows our customers to achieve increased operational efficiencies" said Stephen DeMay, Vice President of Sales. "LiftLite does just that".

"This addition to our line of recycled gypsum boards helps us offer our customers a wide variety of products that contribute directly to more efficient and sustainable buildings" adds Isabelle Shiffrin, Vice President of Marketing.
