Knauf Acoustic Partition Roll

Knauf Acoustic Partition Roll

Acoustic Partition Roll for metal and timber stud partitions

Product Description:

Acoustic Partition Roll is a flexible, resilient, roll of glass mineral wool. It is supplied in dimensions to suit studs at standard 600mm centres.

Application

Acoustic Partition Roll is designed specifically for the sound insulation of metal and timber stud partitions. Using mineral wool as a sound absorbent layer in partitions will significantly improve their acoustic performance, whilst only adding minimally to the overall mass of the structure. The mineral wool complements the plasterboard by absorbing airborne sound in the cavity and reducing reverberation. It also has the effect of reducing the hollow sound that can occur in partitions with unfilled cavities.

Metal stud partitions faced with standard 12.5mm plasterboard and infilled with Acoustic Partition Roll can meet the requirement for a 40 Rw dB sound reduction in accordance with Approved Document E of the Building Regulations.

Acoustic

Acoustic Partition Roll has exceptional acoustic absorption properties.
