Soundproof Plasterboard is one of many acoustic insulation solutions. The plasterboard makes use of several additives and different manufacturing techniques to ensure that it dampens sound and minimises noise pollution. Capable of quietening both airborne sounds and impact vibrations, it can be used on interior walls to prevent noise travelling between rooms, or on ceilings, to prevent sounds passing between floors in a building.

How good is soundproof plasterboard?
Soundproof plasterboard, or acoustic plasterboard as it’s also known, is an effective way of reducing the noise that is heard between rooms in both directions. It’s commonly installed in a range of settings, from domestic homes to hotels, student accommodations, and more.
While acoustic plasterboard won’t completely soundproof your space, it can significantly reduce the amount of noise you hear. This can be by as much as 50 decibels, so it is a really effective option that is surprisingly affordable.
What is the best soundproof plasterboard?
If you’re looking to soundproof a wall or ceiling, selecting a specially designed soundproof plasterboard (also known as acoustic plasterboard) will be more effective than standard plasterboard.
With soundproof plasterboard in stock from leading brands, including Gyproc, Knauf and GTEC, you can be assured you’re getting the highest quality products.
How thick is soundproof plasterboard?
At Insulation Express, our acoustic plasterboard is available in a range of sizes and thicknesses, including 12.5mm and 15mm. This is the same thickness as traditional plasterboard, so you can marry the two different types up seamlessly.
Because the material within the plasterboard is denser and not wider, the boards can be manufactured to the same thickness as regular boards for ease of installation.
What types of soundproof plasterboards are available?
At Insulation Express, we stock a selection of soundproof plasterboards. Popular choices include the Knauf Sound Panel; the tapered edge of this product makes it easier to achieve a seamless finish.
Where more heavy-duty soundproofing is required, the GTEC Siniat dB Board delivers high levels of sound insulation when applied alongside mineral wool. Products like the Gyproc Soundbloc can also improve fire resistance while also reducing noise.
