Sound Check Tapered Edge Plasterboard 15x1200x2400mm
A heavy duty wallboard for excellent acoustic performance. It has a dense high purity gypsum centre within two high-quality paper liners. The blue, tapered face is suitable for seamless jointing.
This sound insulation plasterboard is suitable for installation with stud walls, lining systems and ceilings to reduce airborne sound transmission, an acoustic alternative to standard plasterboard. The board is formed of Aerated Calcium sulphate di-hydrate with fillers and fibres enclosed inside tough liner papers with bound edges. Core and papers are bonded with starch. Edge glue is PVA
The density of the sound proof plasterboards is higher than that of standard plasterboard. GTEC dB board has shown through testing, to be capable of providing an exceptional degree of sound insulation when combined with the use of mineral wool. The sound insulation will vary with the application and number of layers used.
High-density core structure – This provides enhanced sound insulation, helping to meet the UK building regulations for an acoustic performance.
- Weight: 13.1 kg/m²
- Thermal resistance: 0.063 m²K/W
- Standards: BS EN 520 Types D and I (formerly BS 1230 Type 1)
- Composition: Aerated Calcium sulphate di-hydrate with fillers and fibres enclosed inside tough liner papers with bound edges. Core and papers are bonded with starch. Edge glue is PVA

- Finishing: Blue paper faced surface finish, GTEC dB Board can be jointed and finished with any of the GTEC Jointing systems. It can be plastered on either side using single coat proprietary gypsum finishing plasters not less than 2mm thick. The blueliner paper requires more paint obscuration than a normal ivory liner. Allow 10 litres/100m2
What is the best insulation to use for soundproofing?
Loosely packed fibre produces excellent sound absorption, which is a factor in soundproofing, albeit a minor one. Standard fibreglass insulation is as useful as mineral wool and much less costly. Foams give great thermal insulation but are actually not so great for soundproofing.
Do acoustic panels block outside noise?
Acoustic foams are fitted to reduce noise pollution as they can eliminate echoes and background sounds not by preventing the sound but by absorbing it. Acoustic foams are used to constrain the reverberation sounds and this is quite different from soundproofing.
