Soundproof Walls

Barrierboard can either be installed as a retrofit solution directly onto the existing wall or by using furring channels so that acoustic insulation can be added between the primary and secondary walls. Wall depth loss would be either 32mm or 60mm if using furring channels.

Barrierboard - A revolutionary new material to substantially reduce noise - without breaking the bank. Barrierboard, an Australian-made Patented plasterboard composite product can reduce noise levels by as much as 75 per cent depending on its application. This amazing soundproofing product, is ideal for domestic, commercial and industrial sites.

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 gyprock separated by an insulating layer that acts as a decoupler. These sound proof panels are available in two sizes, 2400x1200 and 2700x1200. 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. The end result is maximum performance from minimum thickness.

The reduction of noise through the insulated walls will be in the vicinity of 75% (depending on the existing wall construction).

Barrierboard is ideal for home theatres, apartments, dual occupancies, townhouses and general housing. It can also be used to effectively reduce noise in commercial situations such as Sound Studios, 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.

Double Glazing Specialist

Installing a secondary retro-fit acoustic window or door will provide significant noise reduction to your home, office or commercial application. Traditional double glazing, or refitting thicker glass, will not give you the same level of noise reduction as a secondary system.  Science explains why - it is all about the air gap! Without an air gap, optimally 100mm overall, noise cannot effectively be broken down and reduced.

Sound Absorbers

Noise reverberation is a concern in many of today's modern restaurants, gymnasiums, open plan offices and homes, sound studios, outside patios etc. where hard surfaces often prevail.

Methods of reducing this intrusive noise can be as simple as adding acoustic-absorbent panels or foam tiles to the walls and/or ceilings.
