Typical acoustic plasterboard limitations

If you need to improve the acoustics in a space you may have considered acoustic plasterboard.  This however, can have its limitations.  Acoustic plasterboard is typically punched with hundreds of holes to allow sound to pass through and be absorbed by an acoustic absorber fixed behind the plasterboard.  In this case the acoustic performance is limited because the area of the plasterboard without holes still reflects sound, causing reverberation (echo).

Standard plasterboard vs acoustic plasterboard

SonaSpray applied to standard plasterboard and most other subtrates absorbs sound energy instead of reflecting it, reducing reverberation times and achieving excellent acoustics in any interior space.
