Designed to reduce both impact and airborne transmitted sounds, Norbord’s CaberAcoustic chipboard flooring panel is specified by the UK’s leading housebuilders and contractors for both domestic and non-domestic applications. The portfolio comprises 28mm and 32mm variants of tongue-and-grooved particleboard panels with a 10mm sound reducing layer bonded to the underside.
This specially-designed layer, made in the UK from recycled felt, reduces impact noise transmission by up to 19dB. It also helps reduce airborne noise when used as part of the appropriate flooring system. The board’s tongue-and-grooved edge profile gives a tight, easily-fitting joint and maximum strength when fixed using Norbord’s CaberFix D3 adhesive.
CaberAcoustic gives the best sound reducing performance when installed with a perimeter flanking strip (available in 50m rolls) to reduce sound transference around the edge of the floor deck.
Norbord CaberAcoustic boards are 2,400mm long x 600mm wide and are available in 28mm and 32mm thicknesses with standard TG4 edge profiles. They come in packs of 40 (28mm) or 36 (32mm) sheets.
