The acoustic environment of a space can significantly affect our comfort and overall health. That is why Knauf provides enhanced performance plasterboard solutions, such as its Sound Panel and Soundshield Plus.

Knauf Sound Panel offers enhanced levels of sound performance and a greater density compared to standard plasterboards. It has been designed to help meet residential sound insulation requirements set out in Part E: Resistance to Sound by meeting the required thicker density of 10kg m2 for effective sound reduction.

The board has a blue paper face, making it easy for installers to identify on site and it can be finished with ready-mixed finishes, traditional plaster or direct decoration, making it a versatile option. When used as part of a full Knauf system with Knauf metal, jointing and fixing ranges, its performance is fully tested and backed with a Knauf System Performance Warranty.

The Soundshield Plus is the ideal plasterboard for when sound reduction is particularly important. The range includes two variations of thickness, 12.5mm and 15mm. The 15mm Soundshield Plus contains a high mass and tuned core that offers enhanced acoustic performance, excellent fire resistance and severe duty impact rating when used as part of a full Knauf partition system.

When installed as part of a full Knauf system, the 15mm offers up to 54Db (Rw) acoustic sound reduction and 120 minutes of fire protection. The full Knauf system includes Performance Plus screws, made with a reverse thread on the driver, enabling for a better grip on the board and enhancing the performance of the Soundshield Plus.


As the demand for enhanced acoustic solutions continues to grow across the built environment, Knauf is well-positioned to provide effective, tailored solutions that empowers customers to build with occupant comfort in mind whilst meeting industry standards and regulations.
