Gyprock Soundchek is part of Gyprock’s specialty range of plasterboards. It is a high density gypsum plasterboard with increased noise absorption properties for residential and commercial walls and ceilings where superior acoustic resistance is required.
Soundchek provides effective airborne noise and impact noise insulation. Higher levels of noise control can be achieved by including bulk acoustic insulation in the Soundchek wall cavity.
For extreme noise situations where a high degree of impact noise or low frequencies is an issue, Gyprock recommends acoustic systems where the plasterboard is mounted to resilient mounts. This type of system provides effective separation between the wall surface and the frame which dramatically reduces noise that would normally be transmitted.
The dense core of Gyprock Soundchek also gives it a higher level of soft and hard body impact resistance.
Gyprock Soundchek is not suitable where it would be in contact with water or a constant relative humidity above 90%. For wet areas, the following products would be more suitable:
Gyprock Soundchek is manufactured in Australia to Australian Standard AS2588 and the heavy-duty face paper is a yellow colour.
Gyprock Soundchek is available in 10mm and 13mm thicknesses and in 1200mm and 1350mm sheet widths. The long edges are recessed for flush jointing.
In a horizontal setout, the 1200mm sheet width suits standard 2400mm ceiling heights and 1350mm suits 2700mm ceilings. In commercial applications, plasterboard is often installed vertically to cater for higher ceilings.
