In this lesson we highlight the alternatives you can use instead of dot and dab plasterboard technique.
These alternatives include:
- Sand and cement render
- Backing plaster
- The batten system
All the alternatives are for applying on flanking walls that you are not intending to soundproof or where a chimney stack has been removed to provide a smooth surface ready to apply a soundproofing system.
They are not for the party wall or a wall you are looking to soundproof.
They are to give a finish ready for skim plaster and painting on, using a technique that will NOT amplify the noise unlike the dot and dab plasterboard technique.
