In W&C’s recent eRock, we incorrectly ran a product release on PABCO Gypsum’s QuietRock ES. The correct release is as follows:

QuietRock ES is the first sound reducing drywall that easily scores and snaps using breakthrough EZ-SNAP technology. QuietRock ES has no paper and no metal on the inside of the panel, making it easier to score, cut and install, resulting in less time and labor costs than other acoustical treatments. The patented product achieves high sound attenuation and fire resistance in one panel and is ideal for residential and commercial construction. QuietRock ES benefits include:

  • Powered by EZ-SNAP for true score and snap
  • Easier to snap than other acoustical drywall
  • Installs quickly for increased productivity and lower labor costs
  • Maximizes usable floor space by using just a single layer
  • Outperforms other sound isolation methods, including soundboard and resilient channel
  • High reliability: unlike resilient channel, cannot be easily short circuited
  • Abrasion resistant paper
