Space-saving partition system for commercial projects.
Knauf Silent Spacesaver is suitable in areas where floor space is at a premium and there is a requirement for a partition to provide a high level of sound reduction with a narrow width. The Knauf Silent Spacesaver system is quick to install, lightweight, and maximizes space within buildings.
Features and benefits:
To be installed in accordance with Knauf recommendations and British standards BS 8212-1995 and BS 8000-8:1994.
For socket penetrations, use Knauf Putty Pads. Where multiple, excessive penetrations occur, consider the use of the Knauf Wall Liner System as sacrificial layers - consult manufacturer for details.
