Rigitone™ perforated plasterboard is a superior and modern acoustic solution that delivers a monolithic design due to its edge-to-edge pattern layouts. The Rigitone range combines functionality and aesthetics in the modern design of ceilings. Integrating lighting, ventilation systems, loudspeakers and such is straightforward and simple.
Rigitone is also manufactured with Activ’Air technology which has an enduring impact on indoor air quality. The edges of Rigitone boards are square cut and pre-primed for a unique installation method using ready-mixed Rigitone Filler, creating a continuous, seamless finish. The availability of seamless access panels ensures easy access to the ceiling cavity while maintaining pattern continuity.
Due to the variety of perforation sizes and patterns, board dimensions vary slightly but are nominally 1200mm x 2000mm x 12.5mm. The majority of the boards in the Rigitone range, such as Matrix 8mm Round, Matrix 12mm Square, Astral & Galaxy feature a new chamfered edge for easier installation, while the Matrix 12mm Round & Matrix 15mm Round feature the traditional square edge. Both edge types are pre-primed and sanded and are finished in the same way with Rigitone Filler used to create a continuous, seamless finish.
