Knauf Secrets: Silence is Golden

In this loud and busy world, silence truly is golden. There are times when it is a necessity and times when it is a luxury. Knauf Silentboard rewrites the rules on drywall acoustic performance. Its patented design allows the creation of drywall partitions which outperform the sound reduction of traditional plasterboard and solid masonry walls across a wider range of sound frequencies.

Knauf appreciate that a room designed for audio wellbeing is a modern need and have a product that can guarantee audio euphoria, be it in your home or in a commercial space. For those looking to specify an acoustically sound product, Silentboard hits the high notes.

The unique formulation used to manufacture Knauf Silentboard couples density with a high level of flexibility. The result is a board which offers exceptional sound reduction at both high and low frequencies. Knauf Silentboard is therefore ideal for use in cinemas, entertainment complexes and other buildings where low frequency sounds are an issue.

Knauf Silentboard is a perfect solution for upgrading the sound reduction of existing walls and can be used to overboard drywall partitions.

Knauf Silentboard has been proven to improve the sound reduction of a drywall partition by up to 5dB when a single layer is applied to one side, up to 7dB when two layers are applied to one side and up to 9dB when a single layer is applied to each side of the partition.


As Knauf Silentboard is installed using the same techniques as other plasterboards, it’s quick and simple to install. This highly versatile board can be used for both new and existing buildings. Knauf Silentboard can be used in partitions, suspended ceilings, linings and curved partitions where greater acoustic performance is required.
