Sound ceiling options

Saint-Gobain-Gyproc-Rigitone-ceiling-installationInterior design professionals can now offer their clients a ceiling solution that provides outstanding acoustic performance without compromising visual appeal. Saint-Gobain Gyproc  now imports Rigitone boards, which can be fitted to curved ceiling designs and painted to match the colour scheme of the interior environment.Suitable for high-noise environments such as shopping malls, catering areas and high-impact sports facilities, the two patterns of the boards being imported offer noise reduction coefficients of 0.70 and 0.90 when installed as part of the system recommended by Saint-Gobain.

The boards are 12.5mm thick and are fitted to a Donn screw-up grid. The boards also offer a Class 0 /Euroclass B fire rating, owing to the non-combustible core.
