QuietRock 530

QuietRock 530 is a versatile, high performance sound damping gypsum panel that delivers superb noise reduction and impact resistance. This ‘superpanel’ is UL fire-resistance rated, STC-rated, shear-rated, and impact-resistant.

Made in the USA

Benefits

  • High STC performance (tested up to STC 74)

  • 1 hour fire rated - UL & ULC fire resistant assemblies

  • Shear-rated (average 487 lbs/ft)

  • High reliability: unlike resilient channel, cannot be easily short circuited

  • Continues to reduce noise even when fixtures are installed

  • Can be used in load bearing and non-load bearing assemblies

  • Outperforms other sound attenuation methods, including multi-layered gypsum panels, resilient channel and soundboard
