Quietstone is available as two separate products: Quietstone Light and Quietstone Standard.

Quietstone Light

Quietstone Light is a rigid, durable absorber made from recycled and expanded glass beads. The material is suitable for external use, indoor use and settings which require high impact resistance. It can be worked on site, pigmented or treated with a range of finishes and is non combustible, chemically inert and non fibrous. Panels can be either mechanically fixed or bonded and a range of sizes are available including custom options.

Noise barriers, tunnels, industrial


Ideal for adding an absorbent facing to noise barriers and many other areas requiring a durable and weather resistant solution. Installation is simple as panels can be cut on site and mechanically fixed or bonded to the substrate. Many build up options can be used to suit acoustic requirements and budget.

Other Applications

  • Swimming pools, spas
  • Sports halls
  • Recording studios
  • Offices
  • Enclosure lining
  • Duct lining
  • Render board for external plastering


When an aesthetically neutral finish is needed, Quietstone Light is the base panel of our Quietspray system. The system applied to a ceiling gives a perfect, plaster-like finish whilst providing high sound absorption.

Working with Quietstone Light


One of the main advantages of Quietstone Light is the ease of installation. Panels can be worked using normal woodwork equipment and a dust mask. We can adjust the adhesive to create very flexible panels. Likewise, if you want an even surface on flat walls, our standard panels are ideal.

Fixing Methods

Bonding can be achieved using either adhesive or mechanical fixing depending on substrate and setting. We can provide Ceresit CM18 thin-bed adhesive mortal which will adhere to all solid, loadbearing surfaces. This allows for very rapid, economical installation. Alternatively, Mechanical fixing is suitable and allows for frameworks and air gaps which improve acoustic performance. Contact us for guidance and technical details.

Quietstone Standard

Quietstone Standard is a rigid hard-wearing natural stone with a crisp granulated surface that can provide both a high acoustic performance and practical solution to a wide range of internal and industrial applications. It has been developed for use where traditional soft solutions will quickly exhibit damage or performance reduction, from either physical or airborne impairment.

The use of Quietstone Standard is recommended in areas where strength and damage resistance is an important consideration, and for all external applications. Quietstone Standard has been installed and tested in many environments, for guidance on any aspect of Quietstone Standard and its performance, please contact us.
