Electro-conductive gypsum wallboard

Electroboard is an interior finish material that pairs flat-wire technology with a fire resistant gypsum core. It provides an electrified low-voltage surface accessible with a proprietary connector that one pushes into the face of the wall. As an alternative to traditional track-based lighting systems, Electroboard offers unlimited fixture configuration options and may be finished to blend seamlessly with conventional gypsum wallboard surfaces.

Designed by Eric Olsen with Superficial Studio, Electroboard is economical like conventional gypsum-based cladding and creates additional value though embedded conductivity. It offers material and energy efficiencies as well as infrastructural flexibility. The low voltage power supplied by Electroboard is compatible with many technologies like liquid crystal displays and OLED light fixtures, and point-of-use electrical transformers are eliminated with Electroboard—thus creating considerable energy savings.
