Frequently asked question

How do I acoustically upgrade an existing masonry wall?

We offer several system options for doing this, selection will depend on factors such as type of background, height of lining and performance required. The solutions commonly used are Gyproc SoundBloc plasterboard and Isover insulation with the GypLyner IWL or GypLyner UNIVERSAL systems.

GypLyner IWL independent wall lining is a lightweight, non-loadbearing system, which is built independently of the external wall construction and is particularly suitable for buildings where fixing into the background is difficult or not possible. Please refer to White Book Chapter 07 Section 05 Page 06 for more details.

GypLyner UNIVERSAL is a cost-effective metal wall lining system commonly used where the external wall or substrate is very uneven or out of plumb. It provides a solution for backgrounds that are not suitable for bonded systems, for example the DriLyner systems described above. Please refer to White Book Chapter 07 Section 04 Page 05 for more details.
