QuietWave acoustic plasterboard membrane functions as a constrained acoustic barrier when sandwiched between two x layers of plasterboard. Working in a shear effect, the noise energy passes through the first layer of plasterboard, comes in contact with the QuietWave membrane and spreads across the face on the membrane transforming this energy into heat. This in turn reduces the noise energy from continuing its transference through the next layer of plasterboard, thus increasing the acoustic noise transmission loss of the overall wall or ceiling system.
