Before we can identify methods for reducing sound pollution, it would be advantageous to understand just how sound travels and is transmitted.

Soundproofing Tayport Scotland (DD6)

Sound basically moves in two ways around a room:

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

2. By the vibration of air molecules.

As whale and dolphin songs can show, sound also penetrates long distance through water, however unless you wish to soundproof a swimming pool or aquarium we will just look at the strategies for soundproofing buildings and rooms.


Sounds can be transmitted into and out of a room through heating ducts, gaps around doors, single glazed windows and even electrical sockets and switches. What we hear as sound is in fact the vibration of air molecules being picked up by our ear drum. Regardless of the source of the sound; music playing, machinery, children playing, busy traffic or aircraft, all sounds are created and transferred in precisely the same fashion.

Any holes in a room can be looked at as a leak and will have to be closed off.


We all know that sound is merely the vibrations of air being picked up by the ear, however those vibrations are also reflected by or transferred to solid materials. Sound can be moved around a dwelling from its original source via the vibration of ceilings, floors and walls. Even in a room that is encased in a dense material which is proofed against sound vibrations, such as a concrete lined basement, the sound can be reflected and even amplified to other areas of the dwelling.

However, how can these sound transmitting effects be prevented from causing a problem? The answer is naturally, soundproofing!


A bare floor is more resonant than one covered with a rug or carpet. These soft coverings will help to soak up sounds but can also add a touch of elegance to a previously bare room. Curtains, particularly heavy blackout styles, can also repress any sounds from invading or escaping a room, economically and without requiring specialist soundproofing.

Finding and stopping up any gaps or holes in your room, think windows, doors, electrical sockets and light fittings, is also an easy job for a capable do-it-yourselfer. There are unique acoustic sealants available on the market that absorb the sound waves, and don't transmit them to surrounding materials. There will be a little difference in price compared to a regular sealant, however the soundproofing abilities are much better and will make a huge difference to a room's soundproofing.

If your room is an empty canvas and you are soundproofing as you decorate or renovate, look at putting up another skin of plasterboard or soundboard, (also known as sheet rock, drywall or gyproc). This is a relatively dense type of boarding that is an economic and useful soundproofing material. It's great for areas such as studies, movie rooms or studios being built within your home in Tayport. It is advisable to hire a professional contractor near you to fit the plasterboard unless you've got some experience in this kind of work.

One final simple soundproofing option is to look at the materials your doors are made of. If you have hollow doors in your rooms you'll find that they can resonate and vibrate with any sound that is aimed at them. Solid core doors, whilst a tad more expensive, can have a sizeable effect on the soundproofing qualities of a room.


Some properties, such as those on aircraft flight-paths or next to busy roads, have naturally more sound problems and will require other ways to address the situation. You'll get the best possible soundproofing outcome by retaining the expertise of an established soundproofing specialist.

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

  1. What sort of area or room do you wish to soundproof? Is it a fully lined concrete wall, a stud partition wall or a brick wall etc.
  2. How big is the room you want to be soundproofed?
  3. Is it external noise or internal sounds that you would like to deal with? i.e. To cut out overflying aircraft, traffic or noisy neighbours, or is it from internally generated sounds from a music studio or home cinema for instance.
  4. What is the main area where the sound causes the most problems? i.e. Is it coming down from above, from the walls, through doors/windows or up through the flooring, or is it a mixture of all these things.

An established soundproofing installer in Tayport will take into consideration all of these factors to provide solutions to your noise issues for various budgets. There will be different solutions for each of the key areas the room you wish to soundproof.


To soundproof any sort of room requires 2 key approaches:

  1. Improve the absorption of sound.
  2. Minimise sound the amplification and reverberation of sound.

This will require a site survey to determine exactly what areas require improving from the present condition.

Conclusions from the survey will probably include the addition of materials of different densities and masses to help maximise the soundproofing attributes of the area. This additional mass will include ways to improve the absorption of noises by means of acoustic rubber or foam to gain the maximum impact of noise reduction.

Any uninsulated voids in the room might require some type of muffling material to be placed between them to lower sound resonation. Floor and ceiling voids and cavities in walls can all be likened to a drum, where the space acts as an amplifying area for unwanted sounds.

Soundproofing capabilities are improved if multiple layers of varying density materials are employed, as opposed to installing a single kind of material. This is because the various frequencies are absorbed differently by different materials, therefore a variety of densities, shapes and layers within your soundproofing armoury are required.

Part E of the Building Regulations cover the soundproofing of domestic properties, and will need to be adhered to by any soundproofing company in Tayport. This set of regulations is a legally binding requirement to protect your neighbours and yourself from being affected by noise pollution in an area where folks work and live.

The Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) and the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) are recognised trade associations who offer training, qualifications and represent the very best in companies and contractors which offer soundproofing solutions. Only those Tayport businesses that have been vetted and authorised by these trade associations for professionalism, quality and reliability are allowed to display the logo.

It is commonly used in apartments, houses, recording studios, and commercial buildings, where noise control is essential for the safety and comfort of occupants.
