Rondo QUIET STUD Acoustic Wall System
Description

The unique design of QUIET STUD, combined with appropriate lining board systems, forms an effective buffer against unwanted noise to provide a cost-effective solution to acoustic control provisions, with more floor space and less noise. QUIET STUD's smaller footprint means more usable floor space, and, as the installation method is practically the same as standard drywall construction, it results in lower installation costs as well as a virtually fail-safe acoustic wall-system.

Noise is actually vibration. The stud conducts the vibration across its web, and therefore sound is transmitted via anything that reacts to it by vibrating. The GIB Rondo QUIET STUD is overall bigger in surface area than a standard wall stud, therefore the sound (vibration) has further to travel and therefore weakens in intensity across the wall and results in a more acoustic efficient wall system.
