It's important for us to understand how sound is transmitted around an area before it's possible to identify strategies to prevent it from happening.

Soundproofing Bishopbriggs Scotland (G64)

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

1. Around and within a solid object by vibration and reflection.

2. The vibration or air molecules through the air.

Sound is also transmitted through water, however unless you're planning to soundproof a swimming pool or aquarium we'll only concern ourselves with its isolation through materials and air.

SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH THE AIR

If you look around the area or room to be soundproofed and notice single glazed windows, open ducting, gaps around doors and even electrical sockets and switches, these are all factors that can transfer sound. What we hear and identify as sound is really air molucules being vibrated and reaching our ear drum. Regardless of the source of the sound; heavy machinery, music, children playing, passing aircraft or traffic, all sounds are created and transmitted in exactly the same fashion.

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

SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH STRUCTURES AND OBJECTS

We all know that sounds are just the vibration of air reaching the ear, but that vibration is also reflected by or transferred to solid objects. The ceilings, floors and walls will all affect how sound travels around a room, and may even transmit those vibrations to other parts of a property. Care should be taken with solid brick or concrete walls, such as a cellar, since sound can be reflected and sometimes even amplified to other areas of your property.

How do we stop this sound transmission affecting other people? Soundproofing obviously.

SIMPLE SOUNDPROOFING STEPS

Think about covering a bare floor, which resonates and reflects sound, with a rug or carpet. Not only will such a simple solution reduce your problem with noise, but it can also spruce up the room. Curtains, especially substantial blackout ones, will also repress any sounds from escaping or invading the area, cost-effectively and without requiring professional soundproofing.

Another cost-effective and do-it-yourself resolution is to plug any holes around windows, sockets, doors and light fittings. There are unique acoustic sealants available on the market which absorb the sound waves, and do not transfer them to surrounding materials. There could be a considerable difference in price when compared with a normal sealant, however the soundproofing abilities are much better and can make a massive difference to a room's level of soundproofing.

If your room is an empty canvas and you are soundproofing while you renovate or decorate, look at installing a skin of soundboard or plasterboard, (also called sheet rock, drywall or gypsum board). Plasterboard is a very dense material which is both effective and economical for soundproofing purposes. If you're fitting a cinema room, games room or study then plasterboard can help in reducing sound pollution for that room, and can be easily decorated after installation. If you do decide on plasterboard to help with your soundproofing it is wise to bring in a specialist fitter in Bishopbriggs, to gain the maximum possible benefit from its installment.

One final simple soundproofing option is to check the materials your doors are made of. Although hollow doors are lightweight and relatively affordable, their soundproofing characteristics aren't anything to write home about. Switching hollow doors for solid ones will noticeably boost the soundproofing of an area with only a minimal extra cost.

PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING SOLUTIONS BISHOPBRIGGS

If the sound pollution is excessive in your location, on account of heavy traffic on a busy road nearby, or aircraft flying over for instance, then more serious ways to combat the excess noise will need to be explored. This is where retaining the services of a specialist soundproofing contractor will deliver the most effective results.

Soundproofer Near Bishopbriggs Scotland

Expect to answer the following four questions during an initial survey of your particular soundproofing requirements:

  1. What is the area you wish to soundproof made from? (i.e. a stud partition wall, a brick wall or a fully lined concrete wall).
  2. What noise or sounds are you trying to subdue? i.e. External things like neighbours, road noise, trains etc, or internal sounds from a family room or music room.
  3. What exactly is the size of the area or room that needs to be soundproofed?
  4. From what direction does the noise appear to be coming? i.e. Through the doors, floor, windows, ceiling or walls or a mixture of all.

With honest answers to these queries a good soundproofing specialist in Bishopbriggs will figure out solutions for your circumstances, and just as importantly, your allotted budget. They'll offer you different strategies for soundproofing each of the main trouble spots within your room.

PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF CEILINGS, WALLS and FLOORS

2 key components are needed to soundproof any kind of room:

  1. Minimise sound the reverberation and amplification of sound.
  2. Sound absorption will need to be maximised.

An on-site survey is going to be needed to pinpoint the areas that need to be improved.

The installer will figure out ways to add materials that have different masses and densities to boost the sound quality of the room. The use of acoustic rubbers and foams of different density and mass will help in absorbing sounds and reduce reflections and transmission sources.

Voids between floor joists might require insulating to remove resonation spaces between them. Wall cavities or flooring and ceiling voids can all be likened to a drum, where the space inside acts like an amplification source for unwelcome sounds.

Soundproofing is maximised if multiple layers of different density materials are used, as opposed to installing a single type of material. This is because the different material densities react better with varying frequencies and will deliver a better acoustic resolution to your soundproofing project.

Any soundproofing contractor in Bishopbriggs will need to abide by the Part E of the Building Regulations, if your property is residential in nature. Part E of the Building Regulations is a legally binding requirement to protect yourself and neighbours from the negative effects of sound pollution in an area where folks live and work.

Trade associations in the soundproofing industry that offer qualifications, training and advice are the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) and the Institute of Acoustics (IOA). Only those Bishopbriggs businesses that have been vetted and authorised by these associations for quality, professionalism and reliability are allowed to bear the logo.

Soundproofing or Acoustic Underlay Bishopbriggs

One of the least troublesome ways of adding a degree of soundproofing to your property in Bishopbriggs is through the use of soundproofing underlay. This can be used on wood or concrete floors and can be installed under engineered wood, vinyl planks, laminate, carpet, and many other types of flooring.

Acoustic underlay is particularly beneficial when there is an issue with impact noise rather than airborne noise. These days, a rise in the popularity of "harder" floor finishes has led to more problems with impact noise in lots of Bishopbriggs properties. The type of noise we're talking about here is shifting furniture, kids stomping around and general foot traffic, particularly from rooms upstairs.

You should not get acoustic or soundproofing underlay confused with ordinary carpet underlay, although some carpet companies may well try to palm you off with this claiming it has good soundproofing qualities. Be sure you buy a quality acoustic underlay, if if you're experiencing real noise issues.

Even though impact noise can be significantly lowered through the use of soundproofing underlay, it's got differing degrees of success when it comes to loud music, blaring TV's and incessant talking, and other airborne noises. Accordingly, before picking a particular underlay it's important to identify the precise sorts of noise you're hoping to minimise, and discuss this with your supplier or soundproofing expert.

AMW (Acoustic Mineral Wool)

AMW (otherwise known as acoustic mineral wool) is one of the most versatile products for the soundproofing of homes in Bishopbriggs and has various applications for your sound absorption requirements. Absorbing airborne sound, dampening vibrations and enhancing acoustic performance, acoustic mineral wool is specifically designed to be installed in the cavity spaces of floors, ceilings and walls.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Bishopbriggs

AMW generally comes in 600mm x 1200mm slabs and is readily available in 25mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm thicknesses. Acoustic mineral wool is safe for use in your property in Bishopbriggs, as it has an inert chemical composition and is non-flammable, it is also eco-friendly being made partly with recycled raw materials. It won't have a reaction with any materials or substances that it comes into close contact with (i.e. masonry, plastics, brickwork, metal wall ties), and doesn't encourage the development of bacteria, fungi or mould.

When used as a sound absorption infill between stud partitioning, suspended ceilings and flooring joists, acoustic mineral wool is especially effective, and it is widely recognised in the building industry for its thermal, fire and acoustic insulation properties. To comply with the Building Regulations (Part E) when it comes to separating walls and floors, acoustic mineral wool can be used alongside other soundproofing products.

Soundproofing Foam Bishopbriggs

I was intrigued to discover just recently that a common search phrase typed into Google and Bing was "soundproofing foam", and local searches included "acoustical foam Bishopbriggs" and "soundproofing foam Bishopbriggs". That's really quite worrying, because it indicates that Bishopbriggs home and business owners are assuming that acoustic foam products are suitable for fixing their noise pollution issues.

I don't want to rain on anyone's parade, but soundproofing foam is not the answer to most noise problems, and is definitely not much use if you are looking to block out the din from noisy next door neighbours in Bishopbriggs.

The "egg box" style foam which you often see being sold in tile or sheet form is not really meant for stopping the transmission of noise, but was really developed for use in music studios and comparable situations, to reduce echoing and reverberation and enhance the sound clarity in a room. Acoustic foam of this sort isn't good at stopping sound from travelling freely around your house, or preventing noise from penetrating a party wall. Seeing as it is porous, soundproofing foam absorbs sound and lets sound pass through, as opposed to blocking it.

Having said that, if you're working on creating a music room, this material might be helpful for you, and is available in different sheet sizes and various thicknesses (usually 25mm and 50mm).

Bishopbriggs Skip Hire
