Before we can find ways in which to combat sound pollution, it might help if we understand how sound travels and is transmitted.

Soundproofing Belfast Northern Ireland (BT1)

There are only two ways by which sound can travel around a room:

1. Through the air by vibration of air molecules.

2. Within and around a solid object by reflection and vibration.

As whale and dolphin songs can show, sound also travels through water, but unless your intention is to soundproof a swimming pool or aquarium we will look only at the methods of soundproofing structures and rooms.


Any gaps around doors, heating ducts, ill fitted windows and even electrical sockets and switches can all be responsible for the transmission of sound outside or into a room. What we hear as sound is in fact air molucules being vibrated and being picked up by our ear drums. It matters not whether it's passing aircraft, children playing, heavy machinery, music playing or road traffic, they all create and transmit sound in the same manner.

If you try and visualise your room as if it were a bucket, and you're attempting to identify any leaks which need sealing before you can fill it up with liquid.


We know that sounds are just the vibrations of air being picked up by the ear, however those vibrations are also reflected by or transferred to solid materials. Sound can be transmitted around a building from its source by the vibration of floors, walls and ceilings. Care must be taken with solid concrete or brick walls, such as a cellar, because sound can be transmitted and sometimes even amplified to other areas of your house.

However, how can these sound transmitting effects be stopped from causing a problem? The answer is naturally, soundproofing!


A bare floor surface is more resonant than one covered by a carpet or rug. Such a simple solution can help to damp down any noises and spruce up the room at the same time. Window drapes and wall coverings can also be used to boost soundproofing and are easy to install.

Another cost-effective and DIY solution is to plug any gaps around sockets, light fittings, windows and doors. There are some special acoustic sealants available on the market which absorb the sound waves, and don't transmit them to the surrounding materials. Acoustic sealants can be a little more expensive than standard sealant products, however the special design has far greater soundproofing performance and is certainly worth the small additional cost.

For anyone renovating a property or redecorating a room, consider the soundproofing benefits of adding an extra skin of soundboard or plasterboard, (also called drywall, sheet rock or gypsum board), while you are tackling this work. This is a dense board that is a perfect and economic soundproofing material. If you're fitting a home office, studio or cinema room then plasterboard can help to minimise sound transference to and from that room, and can be readily decorated after installment. If you aren't experienced in putting up plasterboard and framing, it is generally better to employ a professional team to guarantee the best soundproofing results from its use.

One final simple soundproofing treatment is to look at the materials your doors are made of. Even though hollow doors are light and comparatively affordable, their soundproofing qualities aren't all that brilliant. Switching hollow core doors for solid core will enhance the soundproofing of a room with only a minimal extra cost.


Some properties, for instance those alongside busy traffic routes or on aircraft flight paths, naturally have more sound issues and will need other ways to address the dilemma. You'll obtain the best possible soundproofing outcome by employing the expertise of a skilled soundproofing company.

Be ready to answer the four following questions during a review of your specific soundproofing requirements:

  1. What is the space you wish to soundproof made from? (i.e. a brick wall, a lined concrete wall or a stud partition wall).
  2. What is the main spot where the sound creates the biggest problems? i.e. Is it coming up through the floors, through windows, from the walls or down from overhead, or is it a mixture of all these factors.
  3. How big is the room you need to have soundproofed?
  4. What noise or sounds are you looking to reduce? i.e. External factors such as neighbours, overflying aircraft, road noise etc, or internal sounds from a music studio or home cinema.

With accurate answers to these questions a professional soundproofing company in Belfast will provide you with solutions to suit your situation, and just as importantly, your budget. The areas of your room that are responsible for the biggest noise issues may each need different remedies.


There are two areas that must be dealt with to successfully soundproof any room or space:

  1. Minimise sound the amplification and resonating of sound.
  2. Sound absorption needs to be increased.

Doing this requires an on-site survey to find out which areas require developing from the present condition.

Conclusions from the survey will include the addition of materials of different masses and densities to help maximise the soundproofing capabilities of the area. This additional mass will help to increase the absorption of noise by means of acoustic foam or rubber to achieve the maximum impact of noise reduction.

Insulation between any existing voids will be upgraded to reduce the noise resonation and amplification of these "sound boxes". Wall cavities or flooring and ceiling voids can all be likened to a drum, where the space inside acts as an amplifying area for unwanted noise.

Mixed layers of materials with different densities and masses do a better job of absorbing sound than a solitary layer of one material type. This is because the various frequencies are absorbed differently by different materials, therefore a diversity of densities, layers and shapes within your soundproofing panels are required.

Part E of the Building Regulations deal with the soundproofing of residential properties, and must be applied by any installation company in Belfast. Such regulations have to be adopted so as to protect yourself and others from being negatively impacted by sound pollution.
