Noise is actually vibration. A normal stud conducts the vibration across its web, and sound is transmitted via anything that reacts to it by vibrating. The GIB ®Rondo QUIET STUD is overall bigger in surface area than a standard wall stud. Therefore, the sound (vibration) has further to travel and tends to weaken in intensity across the wall, resulting in a more acoustic efficient wall system.
Its unique design, combined with appropriate lining board systems, forms an effective buffer against unwanted noise to provide a cost-effective solution to acoustic control provisions.
