It's important for us to understand how sound travels around an area before it's possible to discover techniques to stop it from happening.

Soundproofing Failsworth Greater Manchester (M35)

Sound is able to travel in two different ways:

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

2. In open spaces by movement of air.

As whale and dolphin songs can show, sound also travels through water, but unless you wish to soundproof an aquarium or swimming pool we will look only at the techniques of soundproofing buildings and rooms.


Sounds can be transferred out of and into a room through gaps around doors, ill fitting windows, open ducting and even electrical switches and sockets. All sound and noise will initiate the vibration and movement of the molecules in the air, and it is this that we hear. All sounds travel through the air in this same manner; it does not matter if it's heavy machinery, music, road traffic, children playing or aeroplanes that generates the sound.

Any openings in the room can be considered to be a leak and will have to be closed off.


Sound waves can also be absorbed by, transferred to or reflected by solid materials and structures. Sound can be transferred around a dwelling from its original source via the vibration of walls, ceilings and floors. Even a room made of solid concrete, such as a cellar, can produce a path of resonance which channels sound waves, and even amplify them, to other areas of a dwelling.

How do we stop this sound transmission having a detrimental impact on other people? Soundproofing obviously.


If you have bare floorboards or floor surfaces, consider covering them with carpet or laying a few rugs to help in reducing any vibrations and sound reflections. Such a simple solution can enhance a room and help to dampen down any noise at the same time. Hanging wall coverings and curtains can also dampen sound reflections and vibrations through walls and windows without the need to hire a professional team of soundproofers.

Look for areas around the rooms where noise can come in or escape from; light fittings, doors, sockets and windows, and seal up any holes or gaps. You can find specialist acoustic sealants in many building supply stores that repress the transmission of sound by suppressing it. Acoustic sealants are inclined to be slightly more pricey than regular plaster or other sealant products, however the special design has far greater soundproofing performance and is certainly worth the additional cost.

If you're going to be renovating or redecorating while tackling your soundproofing requirements, then think about installing an extra layer of plasterboard (also known as drywall, gypsum board or sheet rock). This is an economic and efficient soundproofing material due to its dense nature. If you're putting in a music studio, home office or cinema room then plasterboard will help to minimise sound pollution for that room, and can be decorated easily after installment. If you do decide to use plasterboard to help with your soundproofing exploits it is advisable to bring in a specialist fitter in Failsworth, to gain the maximum effect from its installation.

One final simple soundproofing solution is to examine the materials your doors are made of. If you have hollow doors installed in your rooms you will find that they can vibrate and will resonate any sound that hits them. Exchanging hollow core doors for solid core will boost the soundproofing of a room with only a minimal extra cost.


If the level of sound is high in your location, due to traffic noise from a busy road nearby, or aircraft flying over for instance, then more substantial ways to combat the excess noise may need to be investigated. This is an instance when using the services of an established soundproofing company will deliver the best results.

Be prepared to answer the four following questions during a review of your specific soundproofing needs:

  1. Is it internal sounds or external noise that you need to deal with? i.e. To cut out road noise, trains or noisy neighbours, or is it from internally generated sounds from a family room or music room for example.
  2. What is the room you wish to soundproof constructed from? (i.e. a brick wall, a fully lined concrete wall or a plasterboarded partition wall).
  3. How large is the room that you wish to have soundproofed?
  4. Where is the main source of sound emanating from? i.e. Above, through the doors, floor, ceiling, walls or windows, or a mixture.

An experienced soundproofing installation company in Failsworth will consider all of these factors to offer remedies for your noise issues for various budgets. Remedies will vary in accordance with the different materials required for each of the troublesome areas within your property.


Two key strategies are required to soundproof any sort of room or space:

  1. Reduce sound amplifying and reverberation.
  2. Increase sound absorption.

To effectively assess the areas that need improvement, a site survey must be carried out by a local soundproofing company.

A professional soundproofing company will look at the different methods for adding mass and density to the problem areas. This extra mass will include ways to improve the absorption of sound by the use of acoustic foam or rubber to achieve the maximum noise reduction impacts.

Insulation between any existing voids will be upgraded to lessen the noise amplification and resonation of these sound boxes. Floor and ceiling voids and cavities in walls can all be likened to a drum, where the space acts like an amplification source for any unwanted sounds.

It is best to use combined layers of different densities to soak up unwanted noises than a solitary layer made of one kind of soundproofing material. The different materials will eliminate different frequencies of sound and deliver a more sympathetic feeling and auditory experience to a room.

Any soundproofing contractor in Failsworth will need to follow the Part E of the Building Regulations, if your property is residential in nature. This regulation has the aim of protecting neighbours and other residents in the area from the impact of sound pollution.

Trade organisations in the soundproofing sector that offer training, qualifications and guidance are the Institute of Acoustics and the Association of Noise Consultants. Any Failsworth firm bearing IOA or ANC accreditation will have been appraised to make certain they provide the highest standards, quality and reliability of work within the industry.

AMW (Acoustic Mineral Wool)

Having various applications for your sound absorption requirements, AMW (or acoustic mineral wool) is one of the most versatile materials available for the soundproofing of homes in Failsworth. Acoustic grade mineral wool is specifically designed to be installed in the cavity spaces of walls, floors and ceilings, to reduce reverberation, improve acoustic performance and absorb airborne sound.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Failsworth

Non-flammable and chemically inert, acoustic mineral wool is frequently made from recycled raw materials. It's rare for mould, bacteria or fungi to form in acoustic mineral wool, and it doesn't react with masonry, plastics, metal wall ties, brickwork, or other materials that it makes close contact with.

Acoustic mineral wool is especially effective as a sound absorbing infill when installed in the gaps between flooring joists, suspended ceilings and stud partitioning, and is widely recognised in the building industry for fire, acoustic and thermal insulation. In relation to separating walls and floors, and so as to conform to The Building Regulations (Part E), acoustic mineral wool can be used along with other soundproofing products.
