Using glass mineral wool as a sound absorbent layer in partitions and floors significantly improves their acoustic performance, whilst only adding minimally to
the overall mass of the structure. In partitions glass mineral wool complements the plasterboard linings by absorbing airborne sound in the cavity and reducing
reverberation, it is particularly effective at preventing the hollow sound that can occur in partitions with unfilled cavities.
