CertainTeed designed the SilentFX gypsum board to improve acoustic performance with less material. Type X fire-resistant gypsum boards sandwich a Green Glue polymer core, which enables the board to meet code requirements for curbing sound transmission through walls. The company engineered the board to resist moisture and mold with its M2Tech technology. Made for interior walls and ceilings, builders can install the boards over wood or steel framing and finish the same as traditional gypsum, says the company. 800.233.8990. www.certainteed.com.
