Acoustics

We live in a noisy world. We are exposed to sounds that affect the quality of our life. There are three types of noise, airbourne noise (TV), impact noise (footsteps) and appliance noise (washing machine). The level of soundproofing which directly impacts comfort levels of an area depends directly on its insulation against direct and indirect transmissions. Acoustic insulation should be considered at the design stage as effective sound insulation fitted at the time of construction can reduce noise levels in all types of residential, industrial and commercial buildings. Sound insulation has the advantage of creating a quiet comfortable home environment and at the same time possessing thermal properties.

Calibel is an insulating material made up of a thick base of glasswool assuring excellent thermal, acoustic and mechanical insulation, onto which is stuck a plaster slab.

Field of Use

Calibel is designed to sound insulate party wall constructions for both residential and commercial buildings. Very quickly installed by adhesion to walls, it is equally possible to apply using battens. Furthermore, Calibel adapts to all kinds of applications by just modifying the plaster slab.

Calibel effectively combats direct or indirect transmissions; its use therefore recommended for insulating walls separating two dwellings, staircases and liftshafts as well as facade walls.

1. The base wall must be clean and dry, free from dust and plumb to within 20mm.
2. Cut the Calibel Panel to the height of the ceiling less 15mm.
3. Lie the panel flat, the plaster slab on a stable support.
4. Apply Gyproc Compound adhesive and distribute 8 or 9 blobs 0f 150mm diameter and 100mm to 150mm high (250g) per sqm.
5. Arrange a wedge of approx 15mm at the foot of the support to support the panel while the adhesive sets. Stand the panel upright and make the adhesive stick to the wall by pressing well.
6. Check the panel is plumb by modifying the thickness of the wedges. With the help of a straight edge, tap down the whole surface of the panel.
7. To help retain the panel 3 number 75mm EJOT Plastic anchors can be used. After drying remove the wedges.
8. The space left at the bottom must be filled in with glasswool before the skirting goes on.
