Specialist Acoustic Plasterboard for Part E Building Regulations Compliance

Acoustic Plasterboard is a material you will have come across many times in soundproofing, perhaps you have read it in one of our guides, or a local installer has suggested it as a solution to your neighbour noise, or seen that it features on a specification for a housing or office refurbishment. It is a truly universal product.

Soundproof Plasterboard has a higher mass than standard Plasterboard, and it is this mass that assists in the reduction of airborne sound transferring from room to room by blocking sound energy. To achieve the best possible result in soundproofing, you will need to incorporate Acoustic Plasterboard into our acoustic systems, and you will find these in our 'Systems' tab above in all of our ceiling and wall soundproofing systems across a range of different solutions. Each offers methods of increasing the soundproofing performance by combining them alongside our MuteClip®, or as the front face of our MuteBoard™ series, or as an option for the direct install to stud frames where available space is at it's most premium.

Information

  • 2400mm x 1200mm x 15mm (2.88m2).

  • Featured in our MuteClip® Systems for walls and ceilings.
  • Tapered Edge.
  • Apply plaster skim directly over the top.

Whether you find that random conversation or light household use enters your home, or you are looking to put together a solution for a workplace environment that is effective and easy to install, Acoustic Plasterboard is essential.

Can I use Acoustic Plasterboard on its own to sound proof a room?

Acoustic Plasterboard is best performing when used in a sound proofing system like our MuteClip® options, or when combined with other acoustic materials such as Tecsound or our MuteBoard™ options. When space is at an absolute premium and would only allow the thickness of Acoustic Plasterboard, it will offer an improvement over lightweight standard Plasterboard options. If you are fixing over a stud frame, you will want to use acoustic mineral wool between the frame so that you treat the open cavities.

Can Acoustic Plasterboard be used as a floor soundproofing option?

We do not recommend soundproofing your floor with acoustic plasterboard, and this is because it could lead to cracking or breaking of the board, as well as not accommodating any deviation in joist levels.

Can Acoustic Plasterboard be decorated?

The blue facing of Acoustic Plasterboard can be skimmed straight on to without any additional lining paper, remember to use scrim tape on all joins to make sure the plastering layer bonds successfully.

Which way around is Acoustic Plasterboard installed?

The blue paper finish will want to be facing into the room; if using a tapered edge, it will be the tapered edge facing into the room.

You will want to make sure that the surface you are applying to is flat to avoid any joints unsuccessfully matching up.

When affixing Acoustic Plasterboard you will want to use heavy duty fixings of 18 per board and remember to leave a 2-5mm gap from the adjacent surfaces.

Fix with tapered edge vertically.

Fill all gaps, including the abutting of all joints and around the perimeter. The aim to make sure the surface is as airtight as possible as you are trying to reduce airflow that airborne noise transfers through, even the smallest of gaps.

Use a scrim tape on joins to provide a strong bond for skim plastering; it is essential to note that you require no additional lining paper for skimming, it is ready to go.
