It is crucial for us to understand how sound travels and is transmitted around an area before it's possible to discover techniques to prevent it from occurring.

Soundproofing Kilsyth Scotland (G65)

Sound can travel in only two ways:

1. The vibration or air molecules through the air.

2. Through objects by the vibration of the material.

Sound can also be transmitted through water, but unless you're planning to soundproof a pool or aquarium we will just deal with the isolation through air and materials.


Sound can be transferred out of and into a room through ill fitted windows, open air-ducting, gaps around doors and even electrical switches and sockets. All noise and sound will initiate the vibration and movement of the molecules in the air, and it is this that we hear. All sounds are transmitted through the air in this same fashion; it doesn't matter if it's kids playing, aeroplanes, music playing, traffic or machinery that produces the sound.

You must therefore imagine a room as a boat and inspect it carefully for leaks before sailing off into the sunset.


We know that sound is merely the vibration of air reaching the ear, but that vibration is also absorbed by solid materials. Sound will vibrate the floors, walls and ceilings of your rooms, and may cause a resonation effect which is transferred beyond the room itself. Even if a room is built from a dense material which is resistant to vibrations, such as a concrete basement, the sound can be transmitted and perhaps even amplified to other rooms in the property.

How can we prevent these vibrations and sounds from having an adverse effect on other folks? Soundproofing is the solution.


If you've got bare floors or floorboards, think about covering them with carpet or laying a few rugs to help in reducing any sound reflections and vibrations. Such a straightforward solution can spruce up a room and help to dampen down any noises at the same time. Hanging curtains and wall coverings can also damp down sound reflections and vibrations through walls and windows without the need to bring in a team of professional soundproofing specialists.

Another economical and do-it-yourself remedy is to plug any holes around light fittings, sockets, doors and windows. There are some unique acoustic sealants available on the market which suppress the sound waves, and don't transfer them to the surrounding materials. They are somewhat more pricey than normal plaster or sealants, but they're worth every penny for their soundproofing efficiency.

If you're fortunate enough to be renovating or redecorating while considering your soundproofing requirements, then think about putting up an extra skin of plasterboard (also called sheet rock, drywall or gyproc). Plasterboard is a dense material that's both effective and economical for soundproofing a room. If you are putting in a games room, home office or cinema room then plasterboard can help reduce sound pollution for that room, and can be decorated easily after installment. If you do decide on plasterboard to help with your soundproofing it is advisable to employ a specialist fitter in Kilsyth, to get the maximum possible effect from its installation.

The last solution for do-it-yourself enthusiasts is to look at the doors within your property in Kilsyth. If you have hollow doors installed in your rooms you'll find they can vibrate with any sound that is aimed at them. If you are able to change to solid doors you'll discover that it enhances your room's soundproofing more cheaply than some other alternatives.


If the level of sound is extreme in your location, because of heavy traffic on a busy road nearby, or aircraft flying over for example, then more severe ways to combat the excess noise will need to be explored. You'll get the most effective soundproofing outcome by employing the services of an established soundproofing specialist.

They should ask the four following questions during a basic evaluation of your requirements:

  1. Which is the main area where the noise causes the most issues? i.e. Is it emanating from the walls, through windows/doors, up through the flooring or down from above, or is it a mixture of all things.
  2. What is the area you wish to soundproof constructed from? (i.e. a lined concrete wall, a stud partition wall or a brick wall).
  3. What noise or sounds are you attempting to reduce? i.e. External things like aircraft, traffic noise, next door neighbours etc, or sounds inside your home from a music room or home cinema.
  4. What are the dimensions of the area or room that has to be soundproofed?

Your answers to such queries will enable you to get quotes for the various available solutions that match your requirements. The parts of your room that are responsible for the biggest noise issues may each require different solutions.


2 key components are needed to soundproof any sort of room:

  1. Sound absorption will have to be improved.
  2. Lessen the effect of sound reflection, amplification and vibration by solid surfaces.

An on-site survey is going to be needed to look at the elements that need to be improved.

A professional will evaluate the different ways to add mass and density to the problem areas. This extra mass will help to improve absorption of the sound energy through the use of acoustic foam or rubber to gain the maximum noise reduction impacts.

The insulation between any existing voids will be upgraded or improved to lessen the noise resonation and amplification of these sound boxes. Floor and ceiling voids and wall cavities can all be assimilated with a drum, where the space inside acts as an amplifying area for any undesired sounds.

It is best to use combined layers of different densities to deaden unwelcome noises than a single layer made from one soundproofing material. This is due to the fact that the different material densities react in different ways with varying frequencies and will provide a better acoustic resolution to your soundproofing.

All soundproofing companies in Kilsyth must follow the legislation for domestic buildings specified by the Building Regulations (Part E). Such legislation have to be observed in order to protect yourself and neighbours from the harmful effects of noise pollution.

The Institute of Acoustics and the Association of Noise Consultants are trade bodies who offer training, qualifications and are representative of the best in contractors and companies that offer soundproofing services. Only those Kilsyth businesses that have been vetted and approved by these trade organisations for professionalism, reliability and quality are permitted to display the logo.

Soundproofing Foam Kilsyth

After undertaking some simple keyphrase research, it it would seem to be the case that one of the most common searches on Google and Yahoo is for "soundproofing foam" and for homeowners in Kilsyth, perhaps "soundproofing foam Kilsyth". That is really quite interesting, as it would suggest that Kilsyth householders are assuming that acoustic foam products are suitable for fixing their noise pollution problems.

It's not a case of me trying to rain on your parade, but the simple truth is that soundproofing foam isn't likely to be the answer to your prayers, and will definitely not block out the din caused by noisy neighbours in Kilsyth.

Blocking out noise isn't the purpose of this familiar "egg box" style foam, which was in fact designed for use in music studios and comparable situations, where it can enhance the sound clarity in a room, and reduce echoing, resonation and amplification. Soundproofing foam like this is not effective in stopping noise from travelling around your house, or stopping sound from passing through a neighbouring wall. Seeing as soundproofing foam is spongy and porous, it actually lets sound pass through it, and does not have the consistency to inhibit it.

This foam may however be handy for you if you have a music studio in your house in Kilsyth, and if this is the case you will discover that it can be bought in different sheet sizes and thicknesses.

AMW is especially effective as a sound absorption filler when installed between stud partitioning, floor joists and suspended ceilings, and is widely recognised in the construction industry for thermal, acoustic and fire insulation. To comply with Part E of the Building Regulations in relation to separating floors and walls, AMW can be used alongside other acoustic solutions.
