Gyprock Superchek features a specially formulated dense core and tougher face paper to substantially increase its resistance to soft and hard body impact.
While Gyprock Plus provides everyday durability, Superchek has enhanced resistance to dents, scuffs and scrapes from things such as furniture and school bags.
Superchek also provides improved airborne noise and impact noise insulation for a quieter, more comfortable home. Walls lined with Superchek provide a 15% reduction in perceived loudness compared to standard plasterboard.
Tested Impact Performance
Gyprock impact resistant plasterboard products are manufactured with a heavier lining paper, and special additives to enhance the durability of their core. Typically, these products can withstand twice the discernible force of regular plasterboard products, making them ideal for high traffic areas.
Hard body impact
Hard body impact is assessed by dropping a 50mm steel ball onto the plasterboard surface from increasing heights.
Soft body impact
Soft body impact testing sees a weighted bag swung on a pendulum, striking the plasterboard surface.
Superior Acoustic Performance
Gyprock acoustic plasterboard products fall into two categories – those for preventing sound transmission, and those designed to provide sound absorption. Sound transmission products are manufactured with a denser core, providing a physical barrier to prevent sound moving to adjoining spaces. Absorptive plasterboard products feature perforations to help reduce echo and improve acoustics within a room.
While the selection of an acoustic plasterboard lining alone will improve performance, CSR provides a range of wall and ceiling systems which deliver superior results for transmission or absorption, through a combination of plasterboard, insulation, fixing methods, plenums and framing configuration.
