Firstly it would be a good idea to learn precisely how is transmitted and travels before we can identify ways to reduce any excessive noise escaping from or intruding into your property.

Soundproofing Southborough Kent (TN4)

Sound is able to move in only two ways:

1. By vibration of solid materials and objects.

2. In open spaces by movement of air.

Sound is also transmitted through water, but unless you're planning to soundproof a pool or aquarium we'll only concentrate on the isolation via air and materials.

SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH THE AIR

Any gaps around doors, open ducting, ill fitting windows and even electrical switches and sockets can all be responsible for the transmission of sound into or outside a room. All noise and sounds will create the vibration and movement of the air molecules, and this is what we identify and hear. Irrespective of the source of the sound; aircraft, heavy machinery, kids playing, traffic or music playing, all sound is generated and transmitted in exactly the same fashion.

You should therefore imagine your room as a boat and inspect it carefully for leaks that need sealing before you can sail it.

SOUND THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES

Sound waves can also be transferred to, reflected by or absorbed by solid objects and structures. Sound will vibrate the ceilings, floors and walls of your rooms, and can result in a resonation effect that's transmitted outside of the room itself. Even a solid concrete room, such as a basement, can generate a path of resonance which transports any sound waves, and sometimes amplify them, to other areas of a building.

However, how can these sound generating effects be stopped from creating an issue? The solution is of course, soundproofing!

SIMPLE SOUNDPROOFING STEPS

If you have bare floor surfaces or floorboards, think about putting down a few rugs or cover with a carpet to help in reducing any vibrations and sound reflections. Such a straightforward solution can help to damp down any noises and enhance the room at the same time. Wall coverings or window drapes can also be employed to enhance soundproofing and are easy to install.

Finding and stopping up any gaps or holes in the room, think windows, door frames, light fittings and electrical sockets, is also a straightforward task for a competent do-it-yourselfer. There are some special acoustic sealants available on the market that absorb the sound waves, and do not transmit them to the surrounding materials. They might be a little more pricey than regular plaster or sealants, but are worth every penny for their soundproofing qualities.

For anyone redecorating a room or renovating a property, consider the soundproofing properties of adding an extra layer of soundboard or plasterboard, (also called gyproc, sheet rock or drywall), while you're tackling this project. Plasterboard is a dense material which is both economical and efficient for soundproofing purposes. It is excellent for areas like studios, home cinemas or studies that are being built within the home. If you do choose plasterboard to help with your soundproofing it is better to hire a specialist fitter in Southborough, to achieve the maximum possible effect from its installment.

Be ready to answer the four following questions during an investigation of your soundproofing requirements:

  1. What kind of room or area would you like to soundproof? Does it have a brick wall, a lined concrete wall or a plasterboarded partition wall etc.
  2. Is it external sounds or internal noise that you would like to tackle? i.e. To stop road noise, overflying aircraft or noisy neighbours, or is it from internally produced sounds from a teenagers bedroom or family room for example.
  3. What is the main area where the noise creates the most issues? i.e. Is it emanating from the walls, down from above, through windows or up through the flooring, or is it a mixture of all factors.
  4. What is the size of the space or room that needs to be soundproofed?

Your answers to these questions will enable you to get quotes for the different solutions available to suit your situation. Remedies might vary in line with the different materials needed for each of the problem areas within your home.

Two key approaches are required to soundproof any kind of space:

  1. The absorption of sound needs to be maximised.
  2. Reduce the effects on the way sound is reflected off and transmitted through solid surfaces.

This will require a site survey to verify what areas need improving from the present condition.

A specialist will look at the different ways to add density and mass to the troublesome areas. The use of acoustic rubbers and foams of varying mass and density will help to absorb noises and reduce transmission and reflection sources.

The insulation between any voids will be upgraded or improved to lessen the noise resonation and amplification of these "sound boxes". Wall cavities or flooring and ceiling voids can all be likened to a drum, where the space inside acts as an amplifying area for any unwanted sounds.

Soundproofing capabilities are enhanced if different densities and materials are used, rather than installing only one sort of material. This is because the various different materials react in different ways with varying frequencies and will provide a better overall resolution to your soundproofing exploits.

Acoustic Mineral Wool (AMW)

Having a number of different applications for your sound absorption needs, AMW (or acoustic mineral wool) is one of the most versatile materials for the soundproofing of properties in Southborough. When installed in the cavity spaces of ceilings, floors and walls, acoustic grade mineral wool is specifically designed to absorb airborne sound, improve acoustic performance and reduce reverberations.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Southborough

Normally available in slabs of 600mm x 1200mm, acoustic mineral wool also comes in different thicknesses (25 millimetres, 50 millimetres, 75 millimetres and 100 millimetres). Chemically inert and non-combustible, acoustic mineral wool is often partly made with recycled materials (about 20%). It does not encourage the development of bacteria, fungi or mould, nor does it have a reaction with any substances or materials that it comes into contact with (i.e. masonry, plastics, metal wall ties or brickwork).

When used as a sound absorbing infill between floor joists, stud partitioning and suspended ceilings, AMW is especially effective, and it's well-known in the construction sector for its fire, thermal and acoustic insulation properties. When it comes to separating walls and floors, and when used along with other sound absorbing solutions, AMW can help in observing The Building Regulations (Part E).
