It is crucial for us to understand how sound travels around a structure before it is possible to identify solutions to stop it from happening.

Soundproofing Nelson Lancashire (BB9)

Sound is able to move in a couple of ways:

1. The vibration or air molecules through the air.

2. Through objects by the vibration of the material.

Although sound can also travel through water, unless you're wanting to eliminate noises from a pool or aquarium, we will just be concerned at how to reduce sound levels in the rooms of a building.


Any gaps around doors, open air-ducting, single glazed windows and even light fittings and electrical sockets can all affect the transmission of sound outside or into a room. All sound and noise will initiate movement and vibration of the air molecules, and this is what we hear and identify. Irrespective of the source of the sound; music, heavy machinery, aircraft, kids playing or road traffic, all sounds are created and transmitted in precisely the same fashion.

Any openings within the room can be considered to be a leak and will have to be blocked.


We all know that sounds are merely the vibrations of air being picked up by the ear, but those vibrations are also reflected by or transferred to solid materials. The floors, walls and ceilings will all affect how sound travels around an area, and can even transfer that vibration to other parts of a building. Even a solid concrete room, such as a cellar, can create a resonance path which channels sound waves, and even amplify them, to other parts of a property.

So, what is the best way to stop these vibrations having an impact on other people? Soundproofing of course.


If you've got bare floors or floorboards, consider putting down a few rugs or cover with a carpet to help in reducing any sound reflections and vibrations. These soft coverings will help soak up sounds and can also add a bit of elegance to an otherwise bare room. Wall coverings or window drapes can also be employed to improve soundproofing and are simple to fit and maintain.

Another economical and DIY solution is to plug any gaps or holes around sockets, doors, light fittings and windows. There are some special acoustic sealants available to buy that absorb the sound waves, and do not transmit them to surrounding materials. There may be a little difference in price when compared with a standard sealant, however the soundproofing abilities are far better and can make a massive difference to a room's soundproofing.

If you're luckily enough to be renovating or redecorating while tackling your soundproofing, then look into installing an extra layer of plasterboard (also known as drywall, gypsum board or sheet rock). Plasterboard is a fairly dense material which is both economical and efficient for soundproofing purposes. It is excellent if you're putting in a music studio, home office or cinema room in your property in Nelson. If you do choose plasterboard to help with your soundproofing it is better to employ a professional fitter in Nelson, to get the maximum possible benefit from its installment.

One last simple soundproofing solution is to look at the materials your doors are made of. If you have hollow doors in your rooms you'll discover that they can vibrate and will resonate any sound that is aimed at them. Solid doors, whilst a little more pricey, can have a considerable effect on the soundproofing qualities of a room.


If the sound pollution is extreme in your area, due to aircraft flying over, or heavy traffic on a busy road for instance, then more severe methods to combat the excess noise may have to be explored. You will receive the very best soundproofing outcome by using the services of an established soundproofing company.

The first questions you can expect to be asked are:

  1. What are the dimensions of the room or space that needs to be soundproofed?
  2. What noise or sounds are you seeking to suppress? i.e. External things such as overflying aircraft, neighbours, road noise etc, or internal sounds from a family room or music room.
  3. From what direction do the sounds seem to be coming? i.e. Through the walls, ceiling, windows, floors or doors or a mixture of all of them.
  4. What sort of property or room do you wish to soundproof? Is it a brick wall, a stud partition wall or a fully lined concrete wall etc.

Your answers to such queries will enable you to receive price quotes for the various available solutions that match your situation. The parts of your room that are responsible for the biggest problems may each need different remedies.


To soundproof any kind of room requires 2 key approaches:

  1. The absorption of sound will have to be increased.
  2. Reduce sound the amplification and resonating of sound.

An on-site survey will be required to examine the elements that need to be improved.

A professional soundproofer will investigate the different methods for adding density and mass to the areas with problems. This additional mass will help to enhance absorption of the sound energy through the use of acoustic foam or rubber to gain the maximum impact of sound reduction.

The insulation between any existing voids will be upgraded to reduce the sound amplification and resonation of these "sound boxes". Wall cavities or flooring and ceiling voids can all be likened to a drum, where the space inside acts like an amplification source for unwanted sounds.

It's better to use combined layers of different density materials to deaden unwelcome noises than a single layer made of one sort of material. This is due to the fact that the different material densities react better with varying frequencies and will provide a better overall resolution to your soundproofing project.

Part E of the Building Regulations is a legally binding requirement to protect yourself and neighbours from the effects of noise pollution in a setting where folks live and work.
