PROTONE 12mm Square

Product Description

Protone 12mm Square is part of the Potter Interior Systems Perforated Plasterboard range and one of the three contemporary Protone patterns available. Protone boards were developed by worldwide plasterboard specialist, Saint-Gobain and are available in New Zealand through Potter’s International Alliance Program. These products feature innovative, VOC reducing Activ’Air technology to help improve indoor air quality.

All boards in the Potter Perforated Plasterboard range have been designed for use on ceilings and walls where an increased level of sound attenuation and a high level of aesthetic appeal is required.

The panel perforations together with acoustic fabric lining and insulation, where used, reduce echo and noise reverberation to create more comfortable environments for work and leisure.


Protone 12mm Square is supplied as a 12.5mm thick sheet, 1200mm wide and 2400mm long.


Protone 12mm Square features eight large square groupings per sheet, each with 400 x 12mm square perforations at 25mm centres, providing a 16% open area. The panels are supplied with white acoustic fabric backing that improves acoustic performance and eliminates dust from ceiling cavities.

Unlike standard plasterboard, all four edges of Protone perforated plasterboards are recessed to make flush jointing quicker and easier with the normal tape and three coat jointing system. This negates the need for butt joints between full panels.


An access panel is available that consists of a plasterboard frame that is easily set into the ceiling and a 510mm x 510mm hatch piece with a matching perforation pattern that fits neatly into the frame. This panel provide access to the ceiling cavity while ensuring a seamless look across the surface.


Activ’Air is a patented technology that converts formaldehyde into non-harmful inert compounds that are permanently locked in the board and cannot be released back into the air.
