Our contribution

PARTS 1 & 2

Buildings with a high occurrence of hard reflective surfaces like ceramic tiles, marble or masonry partitions tend to have high levels of reflective sound, resulting in high reverberation time and echoes. GYPROC solutions have sound absorption properties that help rectify this issue, improving sound quality and indoor acoustic comfort and providing the optimum ambiance in the space.
