Optimising domestic soundproofing with Maxiboard

  • 2 Mar 2020

Sound Reduction Systems offers an effective solution to noisy neighbours, offering homeowners comfort and thermal efficiency alike with its Maxiboard Acoustic Boards.

With only 25% of UK homes being classed as detached, the lives of millions of people living in terraced properties, semi-detached houses and apartments are made a misery because of noisy neighbours.

The Maxiboard Acoustic Boards, from Sound Reduction Systems, provide a solution by soundproofing for adjoining walls.

Maxiboard is a patented composite soundproof board manufactured from cement and gypsum with a polymeric core. The composite building board produced offers excellent sound insulation performance and is a very strong, high impact resistant board, suitable for taking screws and fixings direct.

Designed to be easily and quickly installed within many different types of buildings, Maxiboard is ideal for soundproofing new and existing walls. It is part of a system in which the boards are fixed to Maxi Resilient Bars to create an isolated frame, between which Maxislab insulation panels sit, with the perimeter sealed with SRS Acoustic Sealant. Standard plasterboards can then be attached to the Maxiboards to deliver a routine finish and décor.

Alex Docherty, Director of Sound Reduction Systems, comments: “Raising the standard of comfort in UK homes requires a dedicated focus on improving acoustic insulation between adjoining properties. Done well, we can mirror the successes achieved through the uplift in thermal standards over the past two decades and make a dramatic improvement to the quality of UK housing.”

Maxiboard can be used to Meet Part E of the Building Regulations or just to improve domestic comfort from noisy neighbours. In addition to the complementary Maxislab high-density mineral fibre cavity infill panels and Maxi Resilient Bars, additional accessories including SRS Acoustic Socket Boxes allow the acoustic integrity of a wall to maintained where sockets and switches are installed.
