Title: Lead-lined sheetrock
Post by: Melinda on February 02, 2001, 03:20:12 PM
Is lead-lined sheetrock more sound effective when used in resilient channel than regular sheetrock? Do you know the STC of it? Thanks, Melinda

A: Yes, far more effective. Any manufacturer can give you the STC of his product, but mostly it's pretty much meaningless as it will change depending on how it's installed.  Sometimes for the better, (usually) sometimes for the worse.
