The veneered gypsum fibre board

DESIGNBOARD 230 WOOD is used in all areas of high-quality interior design with very high creative design requirements. It consists of a non-combustible carrier board made of gypsum fibre and is veneered in the works. Thanks to the refined surfaces of DESIGNBOARD 230 WOOD individual designs can be realized, so that the demands of tomorrow can already be fulfilled today. Sound insulation, acoustics, fire protection as well as robustness are, in addition to the highly flexible design options, requirements that the DESIGNBOARD 230 WOOD fulfils in correspondingly tested systems.

DESIGNBOARD 230 WOOD is excellently suitable for use in areas regulated by building authority requirements in which non-combustible composite materials are required.


DESIGNBOARD 230 WOOD with nano perforation

Knauf Design sets a new benchmark in sound absorption class A with Knauf Designboard. Nano-perforation offers a very refined look with maximum impact on acoustics and sound absorption thanks to the barely visible perforation of the surface design. This offers countless design options for the surface and the overall look, while the sound absorber fades into the background. Configurable premium acoustics gets the best out of every room for you! Especially where a consistent look is required.

DESIGNBOARD 230 WOOD with straight slots

We recommend the Designboard with straight slots if you prefer an elegant and linear look. It impresses with its strikingly good sound performance (sound absorption class B) and a resolutely modern look. With its straight slot design, acoustic and visual highlights can be created in equal measure. The gypsum fibreboard offers enormous design options, from the natural surface to a variety of HPL laminates and real wood veneers. These options are literally endless thanks to the option of printing directly onto the Designboard: whether it is a decor or custom motif – your creativity knows no limits with Knauf Designboard.
