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

Designed for both domestic and non-domestic applications, CaberAcoustic from Norbord comprises 28mm and 32mm variants of 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’s CaberFix 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, SterlingOSBCaberBoard, and CaberWood MDF are well known and are commonly specified by architects, national housebuilders and specifiers.
