Before we are able to find strategies for eliminating sound pollution, we need to understand how sound travels.

Soundproofing Thrapston Northamptonshire (NN14)

Sound can move in a couple of ways:

1. By the vibration of air molecules.

2. Through the vibration of objects or materials.

Although sound also travels through water, unless you're wanting to isolate sounds from a swimming pool or aquarium, we'll only be concerned with how to soundproof rooms within a property.

SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH THE AIR

Sound can be transmitted out of and into a room through open ducting, gaps around doors, single glazed windows and even electrical sockets and switches. All noise vibrates the molecules in the air and this vibration is what we identify and hear as sound. All sounds travel through the air in the same way; it matters not if it's music playing, machinery, traffic, children playing or aeroplanes that produces the sound.

Any openings in the room can be regarded as a leak and will need to be plugged.

SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES

We all know that sounds are merely the vibrations of air reaching the ear, however those vibrations are also transferred to solid objects. The floors, walls and ceilings will all affect how sound travels around a room, and may even transmit that vibration to other areas of a building. Even a room made from solid concrete, such as a cellar, can produce a path of resonance which transmits sound waves, and sometimes amplify them, to other areas of a structure.

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

BASIC STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING

A bare floor resonates more than one covered by a rug or carpet. These soft coverings and rugs will help to absorb sounds but can also add a bit of elegance to a previously bare room. Hanging wall coverings and curtains can also damp down sound reflections and vibrations through walls and windows without the need for a professional team of soundproofing specialists.

Look for areas in the room where noise can escape or come in; light fittings, windows, doors and electrical sockets, and seal up the holes or gaps. You can find specialist acoustic sealants in some DIY outlets which suppress the transmission of sound by absorbing it. They might be somewhat more pricey than standard sealants or plaster, but they are more than worth it for their soundproofing efficiency.

If the room you are working on is an empty canvas and you are soundproofing while you decorate or renovate, look at installing a skin of soundboard or plasterboard, (also called drywall, gyproc or sheet rock). This is a fairly dense type of board which is a perfect and economic soundproofing material. It is effective if you are installing a games room, home cinema or study in your home in Thrapston. If you do decide on plasterboard to help with your soundproofing it is a good idea to bring in a professional fitter in Thrapston, to gain the maximum possible effect from its installation.

Soundproofer Quotes in Thrapston Northamptonshire

Last but not least you need to inspect all doors in the room that you're soundproofing. Although hollow doors are lightweight and fairly cheap, their soundproofing attributes aren't that brilliant. Exchanging hollow doors for solid ones will substantially enhance the soundproofing of an area with only a small extra cost.

Some properties, for example those on aircraft flight-paths or next to busy routes, naturally have more sound pollution problems and will require other ways to solve the dilemma. You'll get the best possible soundproofing outcome by retaining the expertise of a professional soundproofing company.

Soundproofer Near Thrapston Northamptonshire

The initial questions you can expect to be asked are:

  1. How large is the room that needs soundproofing?
  2. What is the main point where the noise causes the biggest problems? i.e. Is it coming from the walls, through doors, up through the floors or down from above, or is it a mixture of all things.
  3. What is the space you wish to soundproof made from? (i.e. a brick wall, a lined concrete wall or a stud partition wall).
  4. Is it internal sounds or external noise that you want to tackle? i.e. To stop noisy neighbours, trains or road noise, or is it from internally created sounds from a home cinema or music room for example.

Your answers to such queries will allow you to receive quotations for the different solutions available to suit your situation. Remedies will vary according to the different materials needed for each of the troublesome areas within your home.

PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF CEILINGS, FLOORS and WALLS

There are 2 key areas that need to be addressed to soundproof any room or space:

  1. The absorption of sound needs to be improved.
  2. Cut down on the ways that sound is reflected off and transmitted through solid surfaces.

This requires an on-site survey to find out precisely what areas need enhancing from the present condition.

The installer will work out ways of adding materials with different densities and masses to increase the sound quality of the room. The addition of acoustic rubbers and foams of different density and mass will help to absorb sounds and reduce reflections and transmission sources.

Voids between joists may require insulating to eliminate the resonating gap between them. 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.

It's better to use mixed layers of different densities to deaden undesired noises than a solitary layer made of one material. This is due to the fact that different frequencies are affected by different types of materials, therefore a diversity of shapes, layers and densities within your soundproofing panels are required.

The Building Regulations (Part E) deal with the soundproofing of domestic properties, and will need to be applied by any installation company in Thrapston. Such regulations should be observed so as to safeguard yourself and others from the harmful effects of noise pollution.

Trade associations in the soundproofing industry who provide training, advice and qualifications are the Association of Noise Consultants and the Institute of Acoustics. A reputable soundproofing specialist in Thrapston will have been verified for the quality and professionalism of their workmanship to have been certified as a member of these associations.

AMW (Acoustic Mineral Wool)

Having a number of different applications for your noise reduction needs, AMW (or acoustic mineral wool) is one of the most versatile products for the soundproofing of homes in Thrapston. Acoustic mineral wool is designed specifically for installation in the cavity spaces of ceilings, floors and walls, to absorb sound waves, reduce reverberations and improve acoustic performance.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Thrapston

AMW normally comes in 1200mm x 600mm slabs and is available in 25 millimetre, 50 millimetre, 75 millimetre and 100 millimetre thicknesses. Made partly with recycled raw materials (approximately 20%), AMW is chemically inert, and is non-combustible. It is rare for fungi, bacteria or mould to form in AMW, and it should never have a reaction with metal wall ties, masonry, plastics, brickwork, or other substances or materials that it comes into close contact with.

When utilised as a sound absorption infill between stud partitions, flooring joists and suspended ceilings, AMW is notably effective, and it is recognised in the building industry for its acoustic, fire and thermal insulation qualities. When it comes to separating floors and walls, and when used side by side with other soundproofing materials, acoustic mineral wool can help in abiding by Part E of the Building Regulations.
