Barrierboard noise control system by Soundblock Solutions
Barrierboard, an Australian-made patented plasterboard composite product, is a revolutionary soundproofing product ideal for domestic, commercial and industrial sites. This versatile product can reduce noise levels by up to 75 per cent. Barrierboard is compact and easy to install (about 50 per cent faster than conventional soundproofing systems).
It can be used in conjunction with standard wall systems using a minimum of additional space to significantly reduce noise levels. Barrierboard is also effectively used on ceilings.
Barrierboard consists of two sheets of differing thickness separated by an insulating layer.
The sound proof panels are available in two sizes, 2400 x 1200 and 2700 x 1200. Unlike standard plasterboard panels, the composite Barrierboard product is rigid, ensuring that no sagging or bowing occurs when it is fixed in place.
The relatively thin panels (32mm) can be fixed directly to common walls with minimal changes to doorway construction and architraves.
It can either be directly applied to the wall with adhesive and screws or furring channels placed on the wall, insulation fitted and then the Barrierboard installed. The end result is maximum performance from minimum thickness. The reduction of noise through the insulated walls will be about 75 per cent.
Barrierboard ceiling treatment comes in two sheet sizes 2700 x 1200 and 2400 x 1200.
The sheets are resiliently mounted to the ceiling with furring channels placed on the mounts, insulation fitted and then the Barrierboard installed. The insulation will add an additional 4-5db improvement.
Barrierboard is ideal for apartments, dual occupancies, townhouses and general housing. It can also be used to effectively reduce noise in commercial situations such as inter-office walls, conference rooms and general office partitions.
On industrial sites it can be used to divide walls between offices and factory workplaces or to reduce noise emanating from plant rooms.
