Norbord’s new particleboard flooring quietly makes an impact

7 November 2017

Norbord Europe Ltd has added to its particleboard flooring portfolio with CaberAcoustic which is designed for both domestic and non-domestic applications.

CaberAcoustic comprises 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's CaberFix D3 adhesive.
