Enhanced acoustics and style are the hallmarks of Protone 12mm Square perforated plasterboard. This superior acoustic solution delivers a grid-format geometric effect plus enhanced air quality thanks to patented Activ’Air technology.
Manufactured by worldwide plasterboard specialist, Saint-Gobain, Protone is purpose built to provide exceptional acoustic control with contemporary design.
A flexible option provides even greater levels of design freedom.
High levels of acoustic absorption are achieved through a combination of perforation patterns and a highly effective black acoustic fabric backing which also prevents dust from the ceiling entering the room and masks the ceiling framework.
Protone 12mm Square features eight large square groupings per sheet, each with 400 x 12mm square perforations at 25mm centres, providing a 16% open area.
Protone is also manufactured with Activ’Air technology which has an enduring impact on indoor air quality. All four edges of Protone perforated plasterboards are recessed to make flush jointing quicker and easier without the need for butt joints between full panels. The availability of seamless access panels, ensures easy access to the ceiling cavity while maintaining pattern continuity.
Used as a high performance plasterboard for ceilings in commercial constructions where a high level of acoustic performance is required. This includes applications such as theatres, restaurants, shopping centres and hotel foyers. Whilst perforated plasterboard in predominantly installed in ceilings, it is suitable for use in walls.
The unique installation method allows the product’s perforated pattern to continue uninterrupted, achieved using a specialised compound, accessory kit and primer prior, readying the surface for sanding and painting.
An access panel is available that consists of a plasterboard frame that is easily set into the ceiling and a 510mm x 510mm hatch piece with a matching perforation pattern that fits neatly into the frame. This panel provide access to the ceiling cavity while ensuring a seamless look across the surface.
Activ’Air is a patented technology that converts formaldehyde into non-harmful inert compounds that are permanently locked in the board and cannot be released back into the air.
