It's crucial for us to understand how sound is transmitted around a building before it's possible to identify strategies to stop it from occurring.

Soundproofing Oswestry Shropshire (SY10)

There are only two ways in which sound can travel around a room:

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

2. In open spaces by movement of air.

Despite the fact that sound also travels through water, unless you're wanting to isolate sounds from a pool or aquarium, we will just be concerned at how to reduce sound transmission in rooms within a property.


If you check around your area to be soundproofed and discover ill fitting windows, open ducting, gaps around doors and even electrical switches and sockets, these are all aspects that can cause the transmission of sound. All noise vibrates the molecules in the air and this vibration is what we pick up and hear as sound. It doesn't matter whether it's kids playing, passing aircraft, heavy machinery, music playing or busy traffic, they all create and transfer sound in the same manner.

If you try to imagine your room as a bucket, and you are attempting to identify any leaks to seal before you fill it up with water.


We all know that sound is simply the vibration of air being picked up by the ear, but that vibration is also transferred to solid objects. Sound will vibrate the walls, floors and ceilings of your rooms, and may cause a resonating effect that's transmitted beyond the room itself. Even in a room that is encased in a solid material that is resistant against vibrations, such as a concrete lined basement, the sound can sometimes be reflected and maybe even amplified to other parts of the building.

How should we prevent these vibrations and sounds affecting other people? Soundproofing is the solution.


A bare floor is more resonant than one covered by a carpet or rug. These soft coverings will help to absorb noises but can also add a bit of style to an otherwise bare room. Hanging wall coverings and curtains can also suppress sound reflections and vibrations through walls and windows without the need to hire a team of professional soundproofers.

Finding and stopping up any gaps or holes in the rooms, think door frames, windows, sockets and light fittings, is also an easy task for a skilled do-it-yourselfer. Plugging the holes and gaps with a specialist acoustic sealant that can be purchased in some DIY outlets and builders merchants, will make an enormous difference to sound transmission in your room. There might be a considerable difference in price when compared to a normal sealant, however the soundproofing capabilities are far better and will make a massive difference to a room.

For those of you renovating a property or redecorating a room, consider the soundproofing benefits of adding an extra layer of plasterboard or soundboard, (also known as drywall, sheet rock or gyproc), whilst you're tackling the work. This is an efficient and economical soundproofing material due to its dense nature. If you are putting in a cinema room, study or studio then plasterboard will help to minimise sound pollution for that room, and can be decorated easily after installation. If you do decide on plasterboard to help with your soundproofing exploits it is wise to employ a professional fitter in Oswestry, to gain the maximum benefit from its installment.

The insulation between any voids will be upgraded to lower the sound resonation and amplification of these sound boxes. Wall cavities or flooring and ceiling voids can all be assimilated with a drum, where the space acts like an amplification source for undesired noise.

Combined layers of materials with different masses and densities do a better job of absorbing sound than a solitary layer of one material type. This is due to the fact that different frequencies are affected by different materials, therefore a range of densities, shapes and layers within your soundproofing panels are required.
