What Is Acoustic Plasterboard?

Acoustic plasterboard, commonly known as soundproof plasterboard or sound resistant plasterboard, is an enhanced version of standard plasterboard designed to offer a strong level of sound insulation.

The material has a high density, and this largely contributes to its noise reduction property. The higher the density of the blue plasterboard, the greater its acoustic property. Besides, plasterboard can be combined with other soundproof materials such as fiberglass or mineral wool in order to enhance its ability to absorb and block noise.


Soundproof plasterboard is utilized in many applications such as in ceilings, floors, and walls. It is the best material to choose to reduce noise traveling between floors or rooms and block noise from noisy neighbors. The best thing is that the installation is not complicated, and therefore you can DIY.

How Effective Is Soundproof Plasterboard?

On average, acoustic plasterboard minimize sound vibrations by 42 dB. Even if you install a single layer of dB board on the stud wall, you ought to still achieve 42 dB noise reduction.

Humans can perceive a noise reduction as low as 10 dB. So, a noise reduction difference of 42 dB would almost represent a 90% reduction in your current noise levels coming via the walls.

However, if you have not soundproofed the rest of the rooms or some cavities where sound can leak, soundproofing your walls won’t bring any difference. But as long as you consider that, installing blue plasterboard is a worthy investment.


Regardless of where you install your acoustic plasterboard; on the walls, ceiling, or floor, you enjoy the following benefits.
