Gyprock Soundchek provides sound control worth shouting about. This high density gypsum plasterboard has improved sound transmission properties to help maintain the peace when used in residential and commercial walls and ceilings.

Product Overview

Gyprock Soundchek features a specially formulated dense core to increase its sound transmission performance and provide a higher level of soft and hard body impact resistance.

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. 

Gyprock Soundchek is easily identified by the yellow colour of the face paper. 

Typical Applications:

Gyprock Soundchek is available in two thicknesses. Typically the 10mm product is used in residential walls and ceilings to create quiet zones and reduce disturbance from other activities within the home. It is ideal for use around studies, nurseries, bedrooms, laundries, ensuites, home theatres and for ceilings between storeys. 

The 13mm product is suitable for use in commercial projects in areas where noise transfer can be a concern such as; meeting rooms, intertenancy walls in multi-residential developments, bedrooms and ensuites in hotels and hospitals, acoustic bulkheads and shafts.  

Gyprock Soundchek is not suitable where it would be in contact with water or a constant relative humidity above 90%.

Superior Acoustic Performance

Gyprock acoustic plasterboard products fall into two categories – those for preventing sound transmission, and those designed to provide sound absorption. Sound transmission products are manufactured with a denser core, providing a physical barrier to prevent sound moving to adjoining spaces. Absorptive plasterboard products feature perforations to help reduce echo and improve acoustics within a room.

While the selection of an acoustic plasterboard lining alone will improve performance, CSR provides a range of wall and ceiling systems which deliver superior results for transmission or absorption, through a combination of plasterboard, insulation, fixing methods, plenums and framing configuration.
