MuteBoard 4

Specialist Soundproof Plasterboard for Part E Building Regulations Compliance

In noise polluted homes or workplaces it is important to find practical ways to help address the many different problems, it is possible to achieve a peaceful environment with the right solution in place, although you may also be looking for something that is suited for tightly spaced environments.

MuteBoard™ 4 is slim, practical and high in acoustic performance, and this means that you can use it from anything for the reduction of the common household noises when applied directly to brick, block or stud frames, or even elevated noise issues that can range from clearly heard conversation to electronics in operation when installing on to an isolated stud frame. To achieve the best possible solution for soundproofing, you will need to incorporate them into what is called 'Systems', and it is here you will find MuteBoard™ 4 in a range of options. These offer ways of increasing acoustic performance by fitting them to decoupled stud frames, internal stud frames to split multiple rooms, or when you need to be conservative with space - directly installing them to your brick/block wall.

Noise is subjective, and this means that what could be a problematic noise for you, is not for others, and the level of disruption will depend on what level of sensitivity you have to a specific sound or event. Acoustic issues differ for homes or workplaces, but it is our MuteBoard™ 4 that offers flexibility across your requirements for performance, cost and thickness.

Our most dense and highest performing of the MuteBoard™ range is our MuteBoard™ 4, it is a four-ply soundproof material, that comprises of two layers of Mass Loaded Vinyl at both two and four millimetres, each provides a level of damping, this means that due to its flexible mass it will help to break down vibration energy positively from rigid materials. Bonded between the mass layers is a six-millimetre closed cell foam, this helps to provide a degree of decoupling from the structure. We bond these mattings to soundproof plasterboard which is then ready for skim and plastering. You will find Acoustic Plasterboard throughout the soundproofing world, and we incorporate this into many of our acoustic systems and products, and it is its increased mass over standard plasterboard that makes it more efficient.

MuteBoard™ 4 is part of the MuteRange core - these products are subjected to stringent testing in both laboratory and real-world environments providing the best possible solution for the purpose with a result you can trust.
