Soundproofing Advice

September 11th, 2013

I am often contacted by people who have no experience in soundproofing, other than what they have ‘looked up’ on the internet, and to my astonishment, they often have some interesting stories about soundproofing advice they have received from family and friends. Let me tell you now – Sticking egg boxes to your walls will not soundproof your walls. They will however constitute a fire hazard!

Flo-chip polystyrene, bubble wrap and rolled-up newspapers (you may be surprised) also do not work either!

Noise is unwanted sound and sound waves are vibrations in the air that can pass through solids, liquids and gasses. Soundproofing is all about creating ‘Barriers’ so that the vibrations drastically lose energy and therefore aren’t transmitted. We create those barriers by increasing mass and by separation.

We have proven soundproofing solutions that will significantly reduce and block unwanted noise from traveling from your neighbours home into yours. Contact us now for your free quotation.
