Earthwool Acoustic Roll is specifically designed for friction fitting between members at 600mm centres to improve the sound insulation of:
- separating walls
- separating floors
- internal floors
- timber and metal stud partitions
Earthwool Acoustic Partition Roll (APR) is specifically designed for friction fitting between resilient timber battens and timber studs in robust detail separating floors and walls and between timber and metal studs in lightweight plasterboard partitions. Earthwool Acoustic Roll provides a high level of sound absorption, whilst also improving the thermal and fire performance of the floor or partition.
Using mineral wool as a sound absorbent layer in partitions and floors significantly improves their acoustic performance, whilst only adding minimally to the overall mass of the structure. In partitions glass mineral wool complements the plasterboard by absorbing airborne sound in the cavity and reducing reverberation, It Is particularly effective at preventing the hollow sound that can occur in partitions with unfilled cavities.
