Seamless Acoustical Plaster Solution

Acoustical Plaster


The Fade® system is a high quality plastering solution that absorbs unwanted noise in a wide range of environments. As an acoustic solution applied to walls and ceilings, its highly absorbent qualities allow for optimum acoustic control in large, commercial spaces.

Fade® can be applied to virtually any surface including straight and curved walls, dramatic angles and arching domes offering a more flexible, discreet alternative to traditional acoustic solutions, such as suspended ceilings.

Available in a choice of finishes and exclusively through CMS Danskin Acoustics in the UK – Fade® Albus and Fade® Albus Plus offer greater flexibility over acoustic performance and interior design.

Offering unrivalled levels of sound absorption, the Fade® system leaves walls and ceilings clear of panels and other visible acoustic solutions. It is easy to repair, clean and maintain and has a proven track record of providing high performance sound absorption.

The Fade® system can be installed in one of three ways:

(In all installations the fibreglass board is then sprayed with the Fade® system. Once dry the system can be sanded to achieve the desired finish.)

Traditional installation

Fibreglass board and Fade® applied to a plasterboard, concrete or timber substrate with approved adhesives or mechanically fixed with special washers. A mesh tape and plaster are applied to the plastic or aluminium C channel if fitted and to the joints of the pre-coated fibreglass board. The Acoustic Plaster is sprayed to a thickness 2-3mm then trowelled. Once dry if desired the plaster can be sanded to a finer finish.

Previously painted surfaces

The substrate is tested for bond strength and cleaned. Alternatively if paint is flaking the mechanical fixings should be used. The fibreglass board is attached to the painted substrate with the approved adhesive and additionally secured with a minimal amount of special washers if required.

A mesh tape and plaster are applied to the plastic or aluminium C channel if fitted and to the joints of the pre-coated fibreglass board. The Acoustic Plaster is sprayed to a thickness 2-3mm then trowelled. Once dry if desired the plaster can be sanded to a finer finish.

Plaster directly to grid

The fibreglass board is attached to a MF metal drywall grid system or similar with the special washers. A mesh tape and plaster are applied to the plastic or aluminium C channel if fitted and to the joints of the pre-coated fibre Glass board. The Acoustic Plaster is sprayed to a thickness 2-3mm then trowelled. Once dry if desired the plaster can be sanded to a finer finish.
