It's important for us to understand how sound is transmitted around a structure before it is possible to identify solutions to prevent it from happening.

Soundproofing Angmering West Sussex (BN16)

Sound can move in only two ways:

1. Through the air by vibration of air molecules.

2. Through objects by the vibration of the material.

Although sound also travels through liquids, unless you're looking to isolate sounds from a pool or aquarium, we'll only be interested in how to reduce sound levels in the rooms of a building.

SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH THE AIR

Sounds can be transmitted into and out of a room through single glazed windows, heating ducts, gaps around doors and even electrical sockets and light fittings. All sound vibrates the air molecules and these vibrations are what we hear as sound. No matter the source of the sound; music playing, aeroplanes, nearby traffic, kids playing or machinery, all sounds are produced and transmitted in precisely the same manner.

You must therefore think of your room as a boat and carefully inspect it for leaks that require sealing.

SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES

Sound waves can also be transferred to, reflected by or absorbed by solid objects and structures. The floors, walls and ceilings will all have an effect on how sound moves around an area, and can even transfer that vibration to other rooms in a property. Even a solid concrete room, such as a basement, can generate a resonance path which transmits any sound waves, and sometimes amplify them, to other rooms in a property.

So, how can we stop these vibrations having a detrimental impact on others? Soundproofing obviously.

BASIC STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING

If you've got bare floor surfaces or floorboards, consider putting down a few rugs or cover with a carpet to help reduce any vibrations and sound reflections. Not only will such a simple and straightforward solution help to reduce your problem with noise, it can also jazz up the room. Window drapes and wall coverings can also be used to enhance soundproofing and are simple to install and maintain.

Another economical and do-it-yourself solution is to plug any holes around door frames, electrical sockets, light fittings and windows. There are some special acoustic sealants available to buy that suppress the sound waves, and don't transmit them to surrounding materials. They might be a tad more pricey than regular sealants or plaster, but they are worth the cost for their soundproofing qualities.

If the room you are working on is an empty canvas and you are doing the soundproofing while you renovate or decorate, consider installing a skin of plasterboard or soundboard, (also known as gyproc, drywall or sheet rock). Plasterboard is a very dense material which is both effective and economical in soundproofing a room. It's excellent if you are installing a home cinema, study or studio in your home in Angmering. It's advisable to hire a professional Angmering tradesman to install plasterboard unless you have experience in its application.

Lastly you ought to examine all doors in the room that you're soundproofing. If you've got hollow doors installed in your rooms you'll find they can vibrate with any sound that is aimed at them. If you are able to change to solid wooden doors you'll discover that it enhances your soundproofing more cheaply than some other solutions.

If the sound pollution is excessive in your area, due to heavy traffic on a busy road nearby, or aircraft flying over for example, then more severe ways to combat the excess noise may need to be investigated.

They should ask the following four questions during the initial evaluation of your needs:

  1. What are the specific noises that need to soundproofed? i.e. Is it outside noises such as traffic noise, overflying aircraft, noisy neighbours etc, or is it from inside your property such as a music studio or home cinema.
  2. How big is the area requiring soundproofing?
  3. From which direction does the noise appear to be coming? i.e. Through the walls, floors, ceiling, windows or doors or a mix of all.
  4. What is the room you want to soundproof constructed from? (i.e. a brick wall, a stud partition wall or a lined concrete wall).

A specialist soundproofing installation company in Angmering will consider all these aspects to provide solutions to your sound problems over a range of budgets. There'll be different remedies for each of the main key areas of the space you want to soundproof.

PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF FLOORS, CEILINGS and WALLS

There are 2 key areas that must be addressed to soundproof any room:

  1. Reduce sound the reverberation and amplification of sound.
  2. Increase sound absorption.

An on-site survey will be required to pinpoint the elements that need improving.

A specialist will investigate the different ways to add mass and density to the areas with problems. Soundproofing can be improved by the installation of acoustic foam and rubber which will absorb excess noise and enhance and a room's sound quality.

Insulation between any existing voids will be improved to lower the sound amplification and resonation of these sound boxes. If you visualise a drum or wooden cajon, you're looking at a sound increasing void enclosed within a resonating material; in essence what you might find inside floor and ceiling joists, or cavities in walls.

Mixed layers of differing density and mass materials work better at absorbing sound than a single layer of one material type. This is due to the fact that different materials react in different ways with varying frequencies and will provide a better acoustic resolution to your soundproofing exploits.

All soundproofing firms in Angmering must follow the legislation for residential properties laid out in Part E of the Building Regulations. This set of regulations is a legally binding requirement to protect your neighbours and yourself from the effects of noise pollution in a setting where people live and work.

Keep an eye out for contractors showing the logos of the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) or the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) to make sure you're using a business that is knowledgable and fully qualified in the soundproofing sector. Only those Angmering companies that have been vetted and approved by these associations for professionalism, quality and reliability are allowed to display the logo.

Soundproofing Foam Angmering

After performing some elementary keyword research, it would seem that one of the most commonly searched for terms on Google and other search engines is for "soundproofing foam" and for home and business owners in Angmering, something like "soundproofing foam Angmering". Now, that's quite worrying as this would imply that local householders are turning to acoustic foam as a solution to their noise problems in Angmering.

It isn't my intention to rain on anyone's parade, but most noise related issues can't be helped by this product, and if you are aiming to filter out the din caused by noisy neighbours in Angmering, you will have to look for something better.

The foam in the form of an "egg box" that you often see for sale in tile or sheet form is not really meant for blocking out noise, but is really intended for use in music studios and comparable spaces, to reduce echoing and reverberation and improve the acoustic performance of a room. This product isn't good for preventing noise from penetrating a wall from a neighbouring property, or even as a barrier to stop sound from travelling around your home and causing annoyance. As it's porous, acoustic foam actually absorbs sound and allows sound to pass through, rather than stopping it.

If however, you happen to have a music room, this could be a useful product for you to use, and can be bought in different thicknesses (usually 25mm and 50mm), and in various tile and sheet sizes.

Acoustic Mineral Wool (AMW)

Acoustic mineral wool (AMW) is one of the most versatile materials for soundproofing homes in Angmering and has a number of different applications for your noise reduction needs. Specifically designed to be installed in the cavity spaces of ceilings, floors and walls, acoustic mineral wool is effective in dampening vibrations, absorbing airborne sound and improving acoustic performance.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Angmering

Generally available in slabs of 600mm x 1200mm, AMW also comes in different thicknesses (25 millimetres, 50 millimetres, 75 millimetres and 100 millimetres). Made partly with recycled raw materials, AMW is non-combustible and is chemically inert. It is rare for fungi, bacteria or mould to be found growing in AMW, and it will not have a reaction with plastics, metal wall ties, brickwork, masonry, or other materials that it comes into close contact with.

Widely recognised in the construction industry for its acoustic, fire and thermal insulation properties, acoustic mineral wool is notably effective as a sound absorption infill when installed in the spaces between stud partitions, flooring joists and suspended ceilings. With regards to separating floors and walls, and so as to observe Part E of the Building Regulations, acoustic mineral wool can be used side by side with other soundproofing products.

Acoustic Underlay Angmering

An effective way of adding a degree of soundproofing to your Angmering home, without any significant disturbance, is to add soundproofing or acoustic underlay. These can be used beneath carpet, laminate, engineered wood or vinyl planks floor coverings, and are suitable for both concrete and timber floors.

Basically, soundproofing underlay can be a particularly effective remedy where your issue is mainly impact noise and not an airborne noise problem. Many homeowners in Angmering tend to have a massive issue with impact noise, and this is mainly due to the increased popularity of "hard" floor finishes, which are more widespread nowadays. The type of noise we are talking about here is children stomping around, moving furniture and general footfall, especially from upstairs rooms.

You shouldn't confuse acoustic underlay with ordinary carpet underlay, although some carpet suppliers may well try to sell you this with claims of soundproofing attributes. Ensure that you buy a decent acoustic underlay, if you've got real noise problems.

Although it is a valuable product with regard to impact noise, soundproofing underlay has varying degrees of success when it comes to reducing airborne noise pollution like constant talking, blaring TV's and loud music, and some products are better than others. So, when buying an underlay it is important to determine the exact types of noise you are hoping to lower, and discuss this with the supplier or soundproofing specialist in advance.
