Barrierboard™ is a barrier that stops high to mid-frequency sounds.
What is Barrierboard™?
Barrierboard™ is an ingenious 32mm wall panel comprising three key elements. The outer layer is a 16mm Fire rated plaster board sheet specifically selected for its density. The middle is an acoustically designed isolation layer and the key element in the performance structure of Barrierboard™. The inner layer is a 10mm plasterboard sheet that is the substrate of the panel. These elements are adhered using a specially formulated adhesive glue bonded together with roller pressers designed for the manufacture of Barrierboard™.
Sound passes through the outer layer, arrested by the innter layer and is effectively prevented from passing to the next layer.
Barrierboard™ is designed to block sound in the high to mid frequencies. When applied to standard plasterboard walls improves noise reduction by up to 14 decibels or a perception of 80% reduction.* It is effective in reducing mechanical sound transmission as well, due to the inner layer which can stop sound vibrating through the board.
The two rigid panels will allow most sound to pass through unaffected. This is ideal for use in home theatre rooms, bedrooms, home offices and any wall vulnerable to external noise. Other applications include boardrooms, offices, classrooms, kindergartens, police stations, libraries, psychologists, medical centres and consulting suites, in fact any room where discretion is of the highest importance.
*All noise reduction is frequency dependant.
