Shhhh! Norbord's new flooring is very hush-hush!


Norbord Europe Ltd has significantly added to their chipboard flooring portfolio with CaberAcoustic.

Designed for both domestic and non-domestic applications,CaberAcousticcomprises of 28mm and 32mm variants tongue-and-grooved particleboard panels with a 10mm sound reducing layer bonded to the underside.

This specially-designed layer, made in the UK from recycled felt, reduces impact noise transmission by up to 19dB. It also helps reduce airborne noise when used as part of the appropriate flooring system.

The board's tongue-and-grooved edge profile gives a tight, easily-fitting joint and maximum strength when fixed using Norbord'sCaberFix D3 adhesive.

CaberAcoustic gives the best sound reducing performance when installed with a perimeter flanking strip (available in 50m rolls) to reduce sound transference around the edge of the floor deck.

Norbord is one of the world's leading manufacturers of engineered wood-based panel products. All products are FSC®-certified and used extensively in the construction, DIY and furniture sectors.Norbord's brands,SterlingOSB,CaberBoard,CaberWood MDFandContiBoardare well known and are commonly specified by architects, national housebuilders and specifiers.
