Before we can identify techniques for countering sound pollution, it will help if we understand exactly how sound travels and is transmitted.

Soundproofing Brighton East Sussex (BN1)

Sound basically moves in two ways throughout your room:

1. By the vibration of air molecules.

2. Through the vibration of objects or materials.

Sound can also travel through water, but unless you are thinking about soundproofing a pool or aquarium we'll only concentrate on its isolation through air and materials.

SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH THE AIR

Sounds can be transmitted into and out of a room through open ducting, gaps around doors, ill fitting windows and even light fittings and electrical sockets. All noise vibrates the air molecules and these vibrations are what we hear and identify as sound. It does not matter if it's heavy machinery, children playing, music playing, aircraft or busy traffic, they all generate and transfer sound in the same way.

If you try to visualise your room as a bucket, and you are attempting to identify any leaks to seal before you fill it with water.

SOUND THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES

We all know that sound is simply the vibrations of air being processed by the ear, however those vibrations are also reflected by or transferred to solid materials. Sound will vibrate the floors, ceilings and walls of your rooms, and can cause a resonation effect that's transferred outside of the room itself. Care must be taken with solid brick or concrete walls, such as in basements, as sound can be reflected and sometimes even amplified to other rooms in your house.

So, what is the easiest way to stop these sound vibrations having an impact on other people? Soundproofing obviously.

SIMPLE STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING

If you have bare floorboards or floors, consider covering them with carpet or putting down a few rugs to help reduce any sound reflections and vibrations. These soft coverings will help absorb noises and can also add a touch of elegance to a previously bare room. Hanging curtains and wall coverings can also avoid sound vibrations and reflections through windows and walls without the need to bring in a professional team of soundproofers.

Finding and sealing any gaps or holes in the room, think electrical sockets, light fittings, windows and door frames, is also a straightforward task for a capable DIY enthusiast. It is possible to buy specialist acoustic sealants in many DIY suppliers which suppress the transmission of sound by absorbing it. Acoustic sealants can be a little more pricey than normal plaster or other sealant products, however their unique soundproofing qualities far outweigh the small additional cost.

For those of you who are renovating a property or redecorating a room, look at the soundproofing benefits of adding another layer of plasterboard or soundboard, (also known as sheet rock, gyproc or drywall), whilst you're undertaking this project. Plasterboard is a fairly dense material which is both economical and efficient for soundproofing an area. If you're fitting a home cinema, games room or home office then plasterboard can help to minimise sound transmission to and from that room, and can be easily decorated after installation. If you aren't familiar with fitting studding and plasterboard, it is generally best to hire a professional Brighton contractor to guarantee the optimum soundproofing improvements from its use.

One final simple soundproofing remedy is to check the materials your doors are made of. If you have hollow doors in your rooms you'll discover they can resonate and vibrate with any sound that is aimed at them. If you are able to change to solid core doors you will discover that it boosts your soundproofing more cheaply than some other solutions.

PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING BRIGHTON

If you happen to live in a high sound pollution area, such as next to a busy road or near an airport, you'll have to be more imaginative in your efforts to improve the soundproofing in your property. This is an instance when retaining the services of a specialist soundproofing service will deliver the best results.

Soundproofer Near Brighton East Sussex

Expect to answer the following four questions during an initial review of your particular soundproofing needs:

  1. Where is the major source of noise emanating from? i.e. Overhead, through the windows, floor, ceiling, doors or walls, or a combination of everything.
  2. What area needs to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it a concrete lined basement, a loft conversion, a plasterboard partition room or a brick walled room.
  3. What are the dimensions of the area or room that needs to be soundproofed?
  4. What noise or sounds are you trying to subdue? i.e. External things such as road noise, trains, noisy neighbours etc, or internal sounds from a family room or music room.

With answers to these queries a trustworthy soundproofing installer in Brighton will be able to supply you with solutions for your circumstances, and just as importantly, your allotted budget. They will offer you different strategies for soundproofing each of the problem areas within your room.

PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF CEILINGS, FLOORS and WALLS

Two key approaches are required to soundproof any type of space:

  1. Update and increase the level of sound absorption.
  2. Reduce the effect of sound reflection, amplification and vibration by hard surfaces.

A site survey is going to be necessary to look at the aspects that need to be improved.

Solutions identified by the survey will probably include the addition of materials with different masses and densities to help boost the soundproofing qualities of the space. The use of acoustic rubbers and foams of varying mass and density will help to absorb sounds and reduce reflections and transmission sources.

Any noticeable voids in the room may require some sort of muffling material to be installed between them to reduce sound resonation. Wall cavities or flooring and ceiling voids can all be assimilated with a drum, where the space inside acts like an amplification source for any undesirable noise.

It is far better to use mixed layers of different densities to soak up undesired sounds than a solitary layer made from one soundproofing material. This is because the various different materials react in different ways with varying frequencies and will provide a better solution to your soundproofing exploits.

All soundproofing providers in Brighton will be needing to follow the legislation for domestic properties as set down in Part E of the Building Regulations. This regulation has the objective of protecting neighbours and other residents in the immediate area from the effects of noise pollution.

The Institute of Acoustics and the Association of Noise Consultants are trade bodies who offer training, qualifications and represent the very best in companies and contractors which offer soundproofing services. Any Brighton company bearing ANC or IOA accreditation has been vetted to ensure they offer the highest quality, standards and reliability of work within the industry.

Acoustic Mineral Wool

One of the most useful materials for the soundproofing of houses in Brighton, AMW (or acoustic mineral wool) has various applications for your sound absorption needs. Specifically designed to be installed in the cavity spaces of walls, ceilings and floors, acoustic mineral wool is effective in dampening vibrations, absorbing airborne sound and enhancing acoustic performance.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Brighton

AMW usually comes in 1200mm x 600mm "slabs" and is widely available in thicknesses of 25mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm. Often partly made from recycled raw materials (approximately 20%), acoustic mineral wool is non-combustible and has an inert chemical composition. It won't encourage the growth of fungi, bacteria or mould, nor does it have a reaction with any substances or materials that it comes into contact with (i.e. metal wall ties, masonry, brickwork or plastics).

When utilised as a sound absorption filler between flooring joists, stud partitions and suspended ceilings, acoustic mineral wool is especially effective, and it is renowned in the building sector for its fire, thermal and acoustic insulation attributes. When used side by side with other sound absorbing products, acoustic mineral wool can help in complying with The Building Regulations (Part E) in relation to separating walls and floors.

Acoustic Underlay Brighton

If you would like to cut down the noise you experience in your Brighton home without causing excessive disturbance, you could think about installing some acoustic or soundproofing underlay. This is okay for use on wooden or concrete floors and can be installed underneath carpet, vinyl planks, engineered wood, laminate, and many other flooring types.

Where there's an issue with impact noise rather than airborne noise, soundproofing underlay is particularly beneficial. These days, the increased popularity of hard floor finishes has brought about more and more complaints about impact noise in lots of Brighton properties. Such things as moving furniture, general foot traffic and kids stomping around, are the form of noise we are talking about here.

You should not confuse soundproofing or acoustic underlay with standard carpet underlay, although some unprincipled carpet retailers may attempt to sell you this with claims of soundproofing benefits. Ensure that you buy a good quality soundproofing underlay, if if you're experiencing serious noise problems.

Although impact noise can be noticeably reduced with the help of soundproofing underlay, it has varying levels of success with regards to blaring TV's, loud music and shouting, and other airborne noise. Therefore, it's essential to pinpoint the exact sorts of noise you are trying to reduce before choosing a particular underlay, and chat with your soundproofing expert or supplier about your particular circumstances.

Soundproofing Foam Brighton

It would seem from carrying out some basic keyphrase research that one of the most popular searches on Google and other search engines is for "soundproofing foam" and for local homeowners, "soundproofing foam Brighton". Now, this suggests that a lot of people are hunting for a solution to soundproof their properties, and are hoping that soundproofing foam will achieve this.

I don't wish to be the bearer of bad news, but soundproofing foam is not really a resolution for most noise related problems, and is definitely not much use if you are looking to eliminate the din from noisy neighbours in Brighton.

The "egg box" style foam which you frequently see being sold in tile or sheet form isn't actually intended for blocking out noise, but is really designed for use in music studios and comparable situations, to reduce echoing and amplifying and enhance the sound clarity in a room. This type of acoustic foam isn't effective in preventing noise from passing through a neighbours wall, or stopping sound from travelling around the rooms of your house. Rather than blocking it, soundproofing foam actually allows sound to pass through it, because it is in fact porous.

Nonetheless, if you are engaged on a project such as a music room, this product could be helpful for you, and can be acquired in various sheet sizes and different thicknesses (normally 25 millimetre and 50 millimetre).
