Winstone Wallboards Ltd offers a wide range of GIB wall and floor/ceiling noise control systems. GIB Noise Control Systems have been extensively independently tested and evaluated and can be depended on to perform. They represent the state of the art in noise control materials and cost effective design. Noise control can be counter intuitive (e.g. thicker material can degrade performance) and systems are sensitive to component substitution.
Noise control plays an important role in office comfort, productivity and privacy/confidentiality. Studies show that a positive environment has a positive effect on business. Attention needs to be given to noise control, room acoustics, and services. Open plan offices require a degree of privacy which is achieved to some extent by masking sounds. Senior managers expect more noise control and require it for confidentiality. Seminar and meeting rooms, and walls between tenants need to protect the amenity value of users. Wall penetrating ceilings will provide a higher level of performance, thus making GIB Noise Control Systems the perfect solution.
Other areas requiring attention are those that endure noise disturbance from neighbouring rooms (adjacent, above or below) in the form of airborne sound from TV and voices, impacts from footsteps along corridors and stairs, or services like showers and toilets. Noise from impacts travels horizontally along floors as well as up and down; impact through walls can be a concern where there are no buffers from wardrobes or bathrooms.
Noise from lobbies, entertainment and conference rooms can require special attention as well.
Protection from external noise is important near main roads and airports, while room acoustic treatment around receptions in large foyers can aid intelligibility.
GIB Noise Control Systems are ideal for use in such situations.
In the opinion of BRANZ , the GIB Noise Control systems, if designed, and used, installed and maintained in accordance with with the statements and conditions of Appraisal No.394 (2006), will meet the following provisions of the NZBC:
All GIB unfinished plasterboard sheet materials achieve a Group 1-S interior fire rating to NZBC C/AS2-AS6, Table 4.1, following testing in accordance with ISO 5660.1 and ISO 5660.2.
