New Gyptone acoustic plasterboard with design freedom
CSR Gyprock has launched a new perforated plasterboard range called Gyptone, allowing architects and designers to create beautiful ceilings and walls that achieve high levels of acoustic performance.
The three new Gyptone plasterboard options with unique seamless access panels feature excellent acoustic capability and innovative VOC reducing Activ’Air technology to improve indoor air quality. The plasterboard perforations together with acoustic fabric lining improves performance and reduces echo and noise reverberation to create more comfortable environments for work and leisure. Good acoustic design includes control of both sound transmission and sound absorption.
The Gyptone range of perforated plasterboard is suitable for both ceilings and walls, providing ease and versatility for installation, and a surface that is more durable than mineral fibre or similar acoustic absorbers.
The range features three contemporary perforation patterns, Gyptone 12mm square, Gyptone 12mm square minigrid and Gyptone slotted minigrid, each with different percentages of open area to meet most acoustic application requirements. Each board in the range is supplied at a sizeof 2400mm x 1200mm x 12.5mm.
The Gyptone boards can also be used for curved installations down to a radius of 6000mm (dry bending), allowing architects and designers to create stunning architectural features. Unlike standard plasterboard, all four edges of the Gyptone sheet are recessed to make flush jointing quicker and easier which negates the need for butt joints.
A key feature of the Gyptone range is Activ’Air, a patented technology that converts formaldehyde into non-harmful inert compounds that are permanently locked in the board and cannot be released back into the air.
Gyprock manufactures gypsum-based products such as plasterboard, plaster, cornices, ceiling panels and adhesives.Learn more
