Before we are able to discover techniques for combating sound pollution, it would be advantageous to understand just how sound travels and is transmitted.

Soundproofing Newtownabbey Northern Ireland (BT36)

There basically a couple of ways by which sound can be transmitted around a room:

1. By the vibration of air molecules.

2. Through the vibration of objects or materials.

Despite the fact that sound also travels through liquids, unless you're wanting to reduce noises from a pool or aquarium, we'll just be concerned at how to reduce sound transmission in the rooms of a building.


Sound can be transferred into and out of a room through gaps around doors, single glazed windows, open ducting and even electrical sockets and switches. All sound vibrates the molecules in the air and this vibration is what we hear and identify as sound. It doesn't matter whether it's kids playing, busy traffic, heavy machinery, passing aircraft or music, they all generate and transmit sound in the same way.

You should therefore think of a room as a boat and inspect it carefully for leaks before sailing off into the sunset.


If sound moves through the air by vibrations, then it seems logical that those vibrations can be reflected by, absorbed by or transferred to various solid materials. Sound will vibrate the floors, ceilings and walls of your rooms, and may lead to a resonation effect that is transmitted outside of the area. Even in a room that's encased in a dense material that's resistant against sound vibrations, such as a concrete lined cellar, the sound can be transmitted and possibly even amplified to other areas of the structure.

So, how can we stop this sound transference affecting others? Soundproofing of course.


Give some thought to covering bare floors, which resonate and reflect sound, with a carpet or rug. Not only can such a simple and straightforward solution reduce your noise pollution problem, it can also jazz up the room. Hanging curtains and wall coverings can also dampen sound vibrations and reflections through windows and walls without the need to bring in a professional team of soundproofing specialists.

Track down areas around the rooms where sound can escape or come in; doors, electrical sockets, light fittings and windows, and seal any gaps or holes. There are special acoustic sealants available to buy that suppress the sound waves, and do not transmit them to the surrounding materials. Acoustic sealants can be a bit more expensive than regular plaster or other sealant products, but their unique soundproofing qualities far outweigh the small extra cost.

For anyone redecorating a room or renovating a property, consider the soundproofing properties of adding another layer of soundboard or plasterboard, (also called drywall, gypsum board or sheet rock), whilst you're carrying out the project. This is a dense type of boarding that's an economic and useful soundproofing material. If you're fitting a studio, movie room or home office then plasterboard will help in reducing sound transference from and to that room, and can be readily decorated after installment. If you do decide on plasterboard to help with your soundproofing exploits it is wise to employ a specialist fitter in Newtownabbey, to gain the maximum possible effect from its installment.

  2. What's the size of the room or space that needs to be soundproofed?
  3. What room needs soundproofing? i.e. Is it a concrete lined basement, a stud partitioned room, a brick walled room or an attic conversion.

There are two key areas that must be addressed to soundproof any space:

  2. Maximise sound absorption.

A site survey will be necessary to assess the areas that need improving.

The experts will look at ways of adding materials with different masses and densities to enhance the sound absorption of the room. Soundproofing will be boosted by the installation of acoustic foam, rubber and other materials which absorbs soundwaves and improves and a room's sound quality.

The insulation between any existing voids will be improved to lessen the noise amplification and resonation of these sound boxes. If you imagine a drum or wooden cajon, you are looking at a noise increasing void enclosed within a resonating material; fundamentally what you might encounter within floor and ceiling joists, or cavities in walls.

It is best to use mixed layers of different densities to soak up undesirable sounds than a solitary layer made from one material. This is because the various frequencies are absorbed differently by different types of materials, therefore a variety of layers, shapes and densities within your soundproofing panels are needed.
