It is crucial to realise how sound travels around a building before it is possible to identify strategies to prevent it from happening.

Soundproofing Killamarsh Derbyshire (S21)

Sound is able to travel in only two ways:

1. Within and around a solid object by reflection and vibration.

2. Through the air by vibration of air molecules.

Although sound can also travel through liquids, unless you are eager to eliminate noises from an aquarium or pool, we will just be interested in how to reduce sound transmission in the rooms of a building.


If you check around the area or room to be soundproofed and notice ill fitted windows, open air-ducting, gaps around doors and even light fittings and electrical sockets, these are all factors that can transfer sound. What we hear as sound is essentially the vibration of air molecules being picked up by our ear drums. It doesn't matter if it's nearby traffic, passing aircraft, heavy machinery, children playing or music playing, they all generate and transmit sound in the same way.

Any holes within a room can be looked at as leaks and will need to be closed off.


Sound waves can additionally be transferred to, absorbed by or reflected by solid materials and structures. Sound will vibrate the floors, ceilings and walls of your rooms, and can cause a resonating effect which is transmitted outside the room itself. Care has to be taken with solid concrete or brick walls, such as in basements, because sound can be reflected and amplified to other rooms in your home.

How do we stop these vibrations having a detrimental impact on others? Soundproofing obviously.


Give some thought to covering a bare floor surface, which resonates and reflects sound, with a carpet or rug. Such a simple and straightforward solution can enhance a room and help dampen down any noises at the same time. Curtains, and especially substantial blackout ones, can also repress any noises from invading or escaping a room, cost-effectively and without requiring professional soundproofing.

Track down areas in the rooms where noise can escape or come in; light fittings, doors, windows and electrical sockets, and seal up any holes or gaps. There are unique acoustic sealants available on the market which absorb the sound waves, and do not transfer them to surrounding materials. They might be a tad more pricey than regular sealants or plaster, but they're worth the cost for their soundproofing efficiency.

If you're fortunate enough to be renovating or redecorating while considering your soundproofing, then look into installing an extra skin of plasterboard (also referred to as sheet rock, drywall or gyproc). This is a relatively dense board that is a perfect and economic soundproofing material. It is excellent for areas such as movie rooms, studios or studies being built within your home in Killamarsh. If you do decide on plasterboard to help with your soundproofing exploits it is wise to hire a specialist fitter in Killamarsh, to get the maximum effect from its installation.

The initial questions you will be asked are:

  1. What space requires soundproofing? i.e. Is it a brick walled room, an attic conversion, a concrete lined cellar or a plasterboard partition room.
  2. What are the specific noises that need to soundproofed? i.e. Is it outside noises such as road noise, neighbours playing loud music, aircraft etc, or is it from within your property such as a music studio or family room.
  3. What is the size of the space or room that must be soundproofed?
  4. Which is the main spot where the sound causes the most issues? i.e. Is it coming down from overhead, from the walls, up through the floors or through windows/doors, or is it a mixture of all these factors.

With honest answers to these queries a good soundproofing specialist in Killamarsh will figure out solutions to suit your situation, and just as important, your budget. There will be different remedies for each of the key areas the room you want to soundproof.


Two key strategies are needed to soundproof any size of space or room:

  1. Reduce the ways that sound is reflected off and transmitted through hard surfaces.
  2. Sound absorption will need to be increased.

This requires an on-site survey to see which areas need developing from the current condition.

A professional soundproofer will consider the different methods for adding mass and density to the problem areas. Soundproofing can be boosted by the addition of acoustic rubber, foam and other materials which will absorb excess noise and improve and the sound quality of a space.

The insulation between any voids will be upgraded to lower the noise amplification and resonation of these "sound boxes". If you visualise these spaces as similar to a drum then you'll understand that by leaving wall cavities and floor or ceiling joist spaces open, you are creating a sound amplifying area.

It is better to use mixed layers of different density materials to absorb unwelcome sounds than a solitary layer fabricated from one kind of soundproofing material. This is because different materials react in different ways with different frequencies and will deliver a much better solution to your soundproofing.

Any soundproofing company in Killamarsh will have to conform to the Part E of the Building Regulations, if dealing with a residential property. These requirements have to be followed in order to safeguard yourself and others from the harmful effects of noise pollution.

Keep an eye out for companies displaying the logos of the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) or the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) to be certain you are dealing with a business that is fully qualified and knowledgeable in the soundproofing industry. Any Killamarsh firm showing IOA or ANC accreditation will have been appraised to make certain they provide the highest reliability, standards and quality of workmanship within the industry.

Acoustic Underlay Killamarsh

If you are experiencing lots of troublesome noise in your home in Killamarsh, an excellent way to lessen this without excessive disturbance is by installing some acoustic or soundproofing underlay on your floors. These can be used under vinyl planks, carpet, engineered wood or laminate floor coverings, and are suitable for both concrete and timber floors.

When there are specific issues with impact noise rather than airborne noise, soundproofing underlay is especially beneficial. The more widespread use of hard floor finishes means that impact noise has become a rising issue for householders in Killamarsh. This is especially problematic when coming from upstairs rooms, and the type of noise issues that we're referring to here is children stomping around, shifting furniture and general foot traffic.

You should not get acoustic or soundproofing underlay confused with normal carpet underlay, although some carpet stores might attempt to palm you off with this claiming it has decent soundproofing qualities. If your noise issues are severe, be sure to purchase a decent acoustic underlay from a legitimate dealer.

Even though impact noise can be significantly lowered through the use of acoustic underlays, they have varying levels of success with regards to constant talking, booming televisions and loud music, and other airborne noises. Therefore, it's vital to identify the exact types of noise you are trying to minimise before deciding on a product, and talk to your soundproofing specialist or supplier about your particular situation.

Acoustic Mineral Wool (AMW)

Having various applications for your noise reduction needs, AMW (otherwise known as acoustic mineral wool) is one of the most versatile materials available for soundproofing homes and buildings in Killamarsh. Acoustic grade mineral wool is specifically designed to be installed in the cavity spaces of floors, walls and ceilings, to enhance acoustic performance, reduce reverberation and absorb airborne sound.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Killamarsh

Available in 25 millimetre, 50 millimetre, 75 millimetre and 100 millimetre thicknesses, AMW commonly comes in 600mm x 1200mm slabs. Chemically inert and non-combustible, acoustic mineral wool is frequently made of recycled materials (around 20%). It doesn't have a reaction with any materials that it comes into contact with (i.e. brickwork, plastics, metal wall ties, masonry), and does not encourage the development of mould, bacteria or fungi.

Especially effective as a sound absorbing filler when used between suspended ceilings, floor joists and stud partitions, AMW is widely used in the building industry for acoustic, thermal and fire insulation. When it comes to separating walls and floors, and when used together with other soundproofing products, acoustic mineral wool can help in compliance with Part E of the Building Regulations.

Soundproofing Foam Killamarsh

It would seem from some basic keyword research that a frequent search on Google and other search engines is for "soundproofing foam" and for local householders, "soundproofing foam Killamarsh". That is really quite worrying, as it illustrates that Killamarsh property owners are assuming that acoustic foam products are suitable for reducing their noise issues.

The last thing I wish to do is spoil your day, but if you're assuming that the racket from your noisy next door neighbours in Killamarsh can be blocked out with a product like this, you are barking up the wrong tree.

The "egg box" shaped foam that you regularly see being sold in sheet or tile form is not really meant for stopping the transmission of noise, but is really designed for use in music studios and similar spaces, to reduce echoing and reverberation and enhance the sound clarity in a room. This sort of acoustic foam is not effective in stopping sound from passing through a wall or preventing noise from moving around the rooms of your home. Rather than blocking it, soundproofing foam actually allows sound to pass through it, because it is in fact porous.

This material may however be extremely useful for you if you have a music studio in your property in Killamarsh, and if this is the case you'll discover that it is available in various sheet sizes and thicknesses.
