QuietWave® Drywall Acoustic Barriers

QuietWave® is a high performance drywall noise barrier that delivers exceptional performance due to it’s patented constrained layer membrane.

Acoustica’s QuietWall system incorporating QuietWave® delivers six star acoustic performance, a class above the BCA requirements, from the thinnest possible wall.

The building code of Australia (BCA 2004) acoustic requirements introduced new and more onerous acoustic standards of Rw + Ctr = 50 dB for party walls between apartments, townhouses and other attached dwellings. Acoustica’s QuietWave® wall system not only meets the minimum requirements of the new BCA code (equivalent to AAAC 5 star rating) but is a class ahead at AAAC 6 stars.

Acoustica’s QuietWave® flexible visco-elastic membrane consists of a patented constrained layer membrane, combined with vibration damping material ‘floating’ elements. At just 1.2 mm thick it is easily handled and can be installed by just one person.

The QuietWave® flexible visco-elastic membrane can be penetrated without any degradation in performance. The finished wall system has a solid feel and when impacted upon, sound resonates similar to a masonry wall.

QuietWave® increases the low frequency performance of the wall system to counter noise from entertainment sources such as home theatres and any other electronic entertainment noise.

QuietWave® also controls the large coincidence dip in the upper-mid frequency region of 2500 - 4000 Hz, which typically occurs in plasterboard walls.

Acoustica’s QuietWave® wall system provides the best acoustic performance with the thinnest possible wall section.

QuietWave® wall system provides a saving of 50% in the width of the wall against a comparable 6 star rated wall system. Gain 1 m˛ of floor-space for every 6.6 m length of wall, or reduce the overall footprint of the apartment block.

Save money with the industry’s lowest cost 6 star rated wall system.

Step up a class with the highest performance AAAC rating at a cost comparable to a 4 star wall system.
