Acoustic plasterboard is a type of plasterboard that is specifically designed to reduce sound transmission through walls and ceilings. It is also known as soundproof plasterboard or sound-resistant plasterboard. Acoustic plasterboard, like standard plasterboard, is made of gypsum, but it is reinforced with additional materials to increase its density and sound-absorbing properties.
Acoustic plasterboard is commonly used in the construction of buildings that require sound isolation, such as hospitals, schools, and recording studios. It is typically installed in the same manner as standard plasterboard in walls and ceilings. To provide maximum sound isolation, acoustic plasterboard is frequently used in conjunction with other soundproofing materials such as insulation and sealants.
