It is crucial to realise how sound is transmitted around a building before it's possible to discover solutions to prevent it from happening.

Soundproofing Cambourne Cambridgeshire (CB23)

Sound is able to travel in two different ways:

1. Through the vibration of objects or materials.

2. Through the air by vibration of air molecules.

Sound is also transmitted through water, however unless you are thinking about soundproofing a pool or aquarium we will only concern ourselves with the isolation via air and materials.

SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH THE AIR

Any heating ducts, gaps around doors, ill fitting windows and even electrical sockets and switches can all be methods of transmission of sound outside or into a room. All sound vibrates the air molecules and this vibration is what we pick up and hear as sound. All sounds are transmitted through the air in the same fashion; it does not matter if it's aircraft, music playing, machinery, traffic or children playing that generates the sound.

Any holes within the room can be considered to be leaks and will need to be closed off.

SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH STRUCTURES AND OBJECTS

Sound waves can additionally be absorbed by, reflected by or transferred to solid objects and structures. Sound can be moved around a property from its original source by the vibration of walls, ceilings and floors. Care must be taken with solid concrete or brick walls, such as in basements, since sound can be transmitted and amplified to other parts of your house.

But, how can these effects be prevented from causing a problem? The answer is obviously, soundproofing!

BASIC STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING

A bare floor surface is more resonant than one covered with a carpet or rug. These soft coverings will help to absorb sounds and can also add a touch of elegance to a previously bare room. Curtains, particularly heavy blackout ones, can also subdue any noises from invading or escaping a room, economically and without the need for professional soundproofing.

Track down areas around the room where sound can escape or come in; door frames, electrical sockets, windows and light fittings, and seal any gaps or holes. There are some unique acoustic sealants available to buy that suppress the sound waves, and do not transfer them to surrounding materials. There could be a little difference in price when compared with a standard sealant, but the soundproofing capabilities are significantly better and can make a massive difference to a room's soundproofing.

If the room you are working on is a blank canvas and you're soundproofing while you decorate or renovate, think about putting up another skin of plasterboard or soundboard, (also known as drywall, gypsum board or sheet rock). Plasterboard is a dense material that's both effective and economical for soundproofing a room. It's perfect for areas such as studies, home cinemas or music studios which are being built within the home. If you're not familiar with fitting framing and plasterboard, it's advisable to employ a professional team to guarantee you the optimal soundproofing results from its installation.

Lastly you should check out all doors in the room that you're soundproofing. Although hollow doors are light and fairly cheap, their soundproofing characteristics are not the best. Switching hollow doors for solid ones will substantially boost the soundproofing properties of a room with only a minimal extra cost.

  2. What are the dimensions of the room or space that needs to be soundproofed?
  3. What sort of room or area would you like to soundproof? Does it have a plasterboarded partition wall, a lined concrete wall or a brick wall etc.
  4. Exactly where is the main source of the noise emanating from? i.e. Overhead, through the flooring, windows, doors, ceiling or walls, or a mixture.

PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF CEILINGS, WALLS and FLOORS

2 key approaches are needed to soundproof any size of room or space:

  1. Minimise sound the amplification and reverberation of sound.
  2. Increase and maximise the amount of sound absorption.

To accurately analyse the aspects that need to be improved, an on-site survey should be completed by a soundproofing specialist.

A specialist will investigate the different methods for adding density and mass to the trouble spots. Soundproofing can be boosted by the application of acoustic rubber and foam which absorbs soundwaves and improves and a room's sound quality.

Insulation between any existing voids will be improved or upgraded to lessen the sound resonation and amplification of these sound boxes. If you think about a drum or wooden cajon, you're looking at a noise amplifying void enclosed within a resonating material; fundamentally what you may encounter within ceiling and floor joists, or wall cavities.

Soundproofing is maximised if different densities and materials are employed, as opposed to installing only one type of material. The various materials will reduce different sound frequencies and deliver a more rounded auditory experience and feeling to a room.

All soundproofing technicians in Cambourne need to follow the guidelines for residential properties set down in Part E of the Building Regulations. These legislation should be observed in order to protect yourself and others from the harmful effects of noise pollution.

Trade organisations in the soundproofing industry who provide qualifications, advice and training are the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) and the Institute of Acoustics (IOA). Only those Cambourne businesses that have been appraised and accredited by these trade bodies for quality, reliability and professionalism are allowed to bear the logo.

AMW (Acoustic Mineral Wool)

One of the most useful materials on the market for the soundproofing of properties in Cambourne, AMW (otherwise known as acoustic mineral wool) has various different applications for your sound absorption requirements. Designed specifically for installation in the cavity spaces of ceilings, walls and floors, acoustic mineral wool is effective in absorbing sound waves, improving acoustic performance and reducing reverberation.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Cambourne

AMW usually comes in 1200mm x 600mm "slabs" and is available in thicknesses of 25mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm. Made partly from recycled materials (about 20%), AMW is chemically inert, and is non-flammable. It won't have a reaction with metal wall ties, brickwork, plastics, masonry, or other materials or substances that it comes into contact with, nor does it encourage the development of bacteria, fungi or mould.

Especially effective as a sound absorption infill when installed between floor joists, stud partitions and suspended ceilings, acoustic mineral wool is widely used in the construction industry for acoustic, thermal and fire insulation. When it comes to separating walls and floors, and so as to abide by Part E of the Building Regulations, AMW can be used in partnership with other acoustic solutions.

Soundproofing Foam Cambourne

I was intrigued to learn quite recently that one of the most popular soundproofing key phrases typed into Google was "soundproofing foam", and local searches included "soundproofing foam Cambourne" and "acoustic foam Cambourne". This is somewhat confusing, because it implies a basic lack of awareness by local householders who seem to be of the belief that their noise pollution issues can be sorted with soundproofing foam products.

It is not a case of me trying to be a bearer of bad tidings, but the simple truth is that soundproofing foam isn't going to be the answer to your prayers, and will definitely not eliminate the racket caused by noisy neighbours in Cambourne.

The familiar "egg box" shaped foam, that seems to be the hallmark of soundproofing, isn't actually designed for blocking out noise, but has the purpose of reducing echoing and amplifying in music studios and similar surroundings, where it can also enhance the sound clarity in a room. It isn't effective in stopping sound from moving around your house, or preventing noise from passing through a wall from a neighbouring property. Soundproofing foam is in fact porous and does not have the consistency to block noise, it absorbs it and actually allows sound to pass through it.

It might be that you're actually creating a music room in your house in Cambourne, in which case this material may be extremely useful for you.
