First we need to discover precisely how sound moves and can be transmitted before we can identify ways to reduce any loud noise getting into or out of your property.

Soundproofing Histon Cambridgeshire (CB24)

Sound can move in a couple of ways:

1. In open spaces by movement of air.

2. Through objects by the vibration of the material.

Although sound can also travel through liquids, unless you're wanting to eliminate noise from a pool or aquarium, we will only be interested in how to reduce sound levels in the rooms of a structure.


Sounds can be transferred out of and into a room through ill fitting windows, gaps around doors, open air-ducting and even electrical sockets and switches. All sound vibrates the air molecules and these vibrations are what we identify and hear as sound. It does not matter whether it's music, aeroplanes, road traffic, children playing or heavy machinery, they all produce and transfer sound in the same manner.

It is helpful to think of your room as a boat and inspect it carefully for leaks before sailing off into the sunset.


If sound moves through the air by vibration, then it isn't surprising that this vibration can be transferred to, absorbed by or reflected by various solid materials. Sound can be moved around a dwelling from its source via the vibration of walls, ceilings and floors. Care should be taken with solid concrete or brick walls, such as in basements, because sound can be reflected and amplified to other parts of your property.

So, how can we stop these sounds from affecting other people? Soundproofing obviously.


A bare floor surface is more resonant than one covered by a carpet or rug. Not only will such a simple and straightforward solution help to reduce your noise problem, it can also jazz up the room. Curtains, especially heavy blackout types, will also stifle any sounds from invading or escaping the area, economically and without requiring professional installation.

Track down areas in the room where noise can come in or escape from; doors, windows, light fittings and electrical sockets, and seal any holes or gaps. Plugging the holes and gaps with an acoustic sealant found in many DIY and building material shops, can make a huge difference to how your room sounds. Acoustic sealants are inclined to be a touch more pricey than standard plaster or other sealant products, but the special design has far greater soundproofing performance and is definitely worth the small extra cost.

If you're going to be redecorating or renovating while dealing with your soundproofing, then think about the possibility of installing an additional skin of plasterboard (also referred to as sheet rock, drywall or gyproc). This is a dense type of board which is an economic and useful soundproofing material. It's ideal if you're putting in a home cinema, games room or home office in your home in Histon. It's best to hire a certified contractor near you to put up the plasterboard unless you've some experience in this kind of work.

If your home is in a high sound pollution area, such as next to a busy road or near an airport, you'll have to be more aggressive in how to enhance the soundproofing qualities of your home. The best way to resolve these issues is to contact a professional soundproofing and acoustic firm from your local region.

Be prepared to answer the four following questions during an assessment of your specific soundproofing needs:

  1. What noise or sounds are you wanting to suppress? i.e. External issues such as road noise, overflying aircraft, neighbours etc, or sounds within your home from a family room or music room.
  2. How large is the room that you want to be soundproofed?
  3. What room needs to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it a concrete lined basement, a stud partitioned room, a loft conversion or a brick walled room.
  4. From which direction do the noises seem to be coming from? i.e. Through the doors, ceiling, windows, walls or flooring or a mixture of all of these.

A specialist soundproofing installer in Histon will look at all these factors to offer remedies for your sound problems over a range of budgets. There'll be distinct remedies for each of the main key areas of the room you wish to soundproof.


There are 2 areas that must be dealt with to soundproof any space or room:

  1. Sound absorption needs to be enhanced.
  2. Cut down on the effects on the way sound is transmitted through and reflected by hard surfaces.

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

The installer will figure out ways of adding materials that have different masses and densities to maximise the sound absorption qualities of the room. This additional mass will include ways to enhance the absorption of noises through the use of acoustic foam or rubber to gain the maximum noise reduction impacts.

Any voids in the room may need some form of deadening material to be inserted between them to lessen noise resonation. If you visualise a drum or wooden cajon, you're looking at a sound amplifying void enclosed within a resonating material; basically what you may find within floor and ceiling joists, or cavities in walls.

Combined layers of differing density and mass materials work better at absorbing noise than a single layer of one material type. This is because the various frequencies are absorbed differently by different materials, therefore a range of densities, layers and shapes within your soundproofing panels are needed for the best results.

All soundproofing contractors in Histon have to follow the guidelines for residential buildings set down in the Building Regulations (Part E). This set of regulations is a legally binding requirement to protect yourself and neighbours from the negative effects of sound pollution in an area where people live and work.

Trade organisations in the soundproofing industry who offer advice, qualifications and training are the Association of Noise Consultants and the Institute of Acoustics. Only those Histon companies that have been vetted and accredited by these associations for quality, professionalism and reliability are permitted to bear the logo.

AMW (Acoustic Mineral Wool)

Having a number of different applications for your noise reduction needs, acoustic mineral wool (AMW) is one of the most useful materials on the market for soundproofing homes and buildings in Histon. Reducing reverberation, absorbing sound waves and improving acoustic performance, acoustic grade mineral wool is specifically designed to be installed in the cavity spaces of floors, ceilings and walls.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Histon

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

AMW is notably effective as a sound absorption infill when installed between stud partitioning, flooring joists and suspended ceilings, and is widely recognised in the construction sector for acoustic, fire and thermal insulation. When used in conjunction with other acoustic solutions, acoustic mineral wool can help in adhering to The Building Regulations (Part E) with regards to separating floors and walls.
