British Gypsum - Acoustic ceiling boards surge ahead
The growth in demand for specialist
acoustic ceiling boards has continued to surge since the
introduction of Part E, with British Gypsum reporting 60%
year-on-year sales growth for its popular Gyptone board range.
According to Ceilings Division Manager, Steve Wintle, the biggest growth has been in Class C absorbers, which are now required for corridors and common areas in residential apartment developments. “Gyptone QUATTRO 45 has been our most popular board because it has clean geometric lines that co-ordinate well with modern interior décor, and is available in 900mm wide boards, ideal for narrower 900mm and 1000mm corridors, as well the full width 1200mm boards.”
Gyptone QUATTRO 45 boards, which feature a regular pattern of full depth perforations, are backed with a special acoustic tissue to optimise sound absorption. They guarantee compliance with Part E requirements, whilst providing a combination of subdued acoustic environment and modern, eye-catching appearance, which is ideal for entrance areas and corridors.
Once jointed, they provide a clean, monolithic ceiling that can be redecorated, without affecting acoustic performance, to maintain pristine appearance for years to come.
Gyptone QUATTRO 45 is just one of a range of acoustic ceiling boards, planks and tiles that provide house builders and developers with a choice of design and performance options to complement modern interiors.
