Wall Support – AFR-WS Type

Description Key Features Applications

Acrefine Wall Support

Rubber and Steel Secondary Wall Support

AFR-WS type wall supports provide bracing for secondary walls whilst eliminating the transmission paths for vibration and noise. Mass law states that it is more efficient to create an air void by installing a secondary wall instead of thickening a wall to prevent airborne noise transmission. Therefore, a drywall is usually installed on partitioning walls for a better acoustic performance. However, bracings that support the drywall transmit vibration and noise to neighboring rooms and building structure. AFR-WS wall supports bearing profiles are decoupled with a rubber layer to prevent vibration and noise transmission. There by, partitioning walls that utilize AFR-WS perform excellent acoustic insulation.

Key Features
  • Sound, vibration and impact isolation
  • High dynamic stiffness
  • Load bearing capacity up to 230 kg
  • Natural Rubber (NR) compound
  • 50 Shore A Hardness as standard

Acrefine AFR-WS type wall supports are suitable for all spaces that implement a secondary wall with the intention of preventing noise transmission. AFR-WS can be applied especially on the walls of mechanical rooms that are adjacent to living spaces. Its use is also recommended for spaces such as fitness rooms, cinema theatres and music studios that require moderate to high noise insulation.
