First we need to learn just how sound moves and can be transmitted before we can identify ways to combat any excessive noise intruding into or escaping from your property.

Soundproofing Tullibody Scotland (FK10)

Sound basically moves in two ways around a room:

1. Through the vibration of objects or materials.

2. Through the air by vibration of air molecules.

Sound is also transmitted through water, however unless you are planning to soundproof an aquarium or pool we will just deal with the isolation through air and materials.


Substantial levels of sound can be transferred into and out of a room through gaps around doors, open ducting, ill fitted windows and even electrical switches and sockets. What we hear as sound is really the vibration of air molecules reaching our ear drums. No matter what the source of the sound; music, children playing, nearby traffic, heavy machinery or passing aircraft, all sound is produced and transferred in precisely the same fashion.

If you try and visualise your room as a bucket, and you are trying to find any leaks that need sealing before you fill it with water.


We now know that sounds are just the vibrations of air being processed by the ear, but those vibrations are also reflected by or transferred to solid objects. Sound will cause vibrations in the floors, walls and ceilings of your rooms, and may cause a resonation effect that is transmitted outside the area. Even if a room is encased in a solid material that is resistant against vibrations, such as a concrete cellar, the sound can sometimes be transmitted and maybe even amplified to other rooms in the structure.

How should we prevent these sounds and vibrations from having an adverse effect on other people? Soundproofing is the answer.


Consider covering a bare floor surface, which resonates and reflects sound, with a rug or carpet. These soft coverings and rugs will help to soak up sounds and can also add a bit of elegance to a previously bare room. Curtains, especially substantial blackout ones, will also repress any noises from escaping or invading the area, economically and without the need for professional soundproofing.

Track down areas in the room where noise can come in or escape from; light fittings, door frames, sockets and windows, and seal up the gaps. There are unique acoustic sealants available on the market that suppress the sound waves, and do not transfer them to surrounding materials. There may be a little difference in price compared to a standard sealant, however the soundproofing capabilities are far better and can make a huge difference to a room's soundproofing.

For anybody redecorating a room or renovating a property, look at the soundproofing properties of adding another layer of soundboard or plasterboard, (also known as sheet rock, drywall or gyproc), whilst you are undertaking the project. This is a dense type of boarding that is an economic and useful soundproofing material. It's excellent for spaces such as home offices, music studios or home cinemas which are being built within the home. If you are not proficient in putting up framing and plasterboard, it's advisable to employ a professional Tullibody contractor to guarantee you the optimal soundproofing results from its use.

The final do-it-yourself solution is to check out the doors within your home in Tullibody. If you have hollow doors fitted to rooms you will find that they can vibrate with any sound that hits them. Solid wood doors, whilst a little bit more expensive, can do wonders for improving the soundproofing qualities of a room.


If you reside in a high noise pollution location, such as near an airport or next to busy roads, you will need to be more innovative in your endeavours to increase the soundproofing in your house. The best way to resolve these problems is to call in a decent soundproofing and acoustic contractor from the local region.

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

  1. What area needs to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it an attic conversion, a concrete lined cellar, a plasterboard partition room or a brick walled room.
  2. What are the particular noises that you need to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it sounds from within your property such as a music studio or family room, or outside noises such as road noise, aircraft, next door neighbours, etc.
  3. Where is the major source of the noise emanating from? i.e. Overhead, through the windows, floors, ceiling, doors or walls, or a mixture.
  4. How large is the room that you need to be soundproofed?

With honest answers to these queries a good soundproofing firm in Tullibody will be able to supply you with solutions for your circumstances, and just as important, your allotted budget. There'll be different remedies for each of the key areas the room you wish to soundproof.


2 key components are required to soundproof any type of room or space:

  1. Reduce sound amplifying and reverberation.
  2. The absorption of sound needs to be maximised.

An on-site survey will be needed to pinpoint the areas to be improved.

A specialist will consider the different methods for adding mass and density to the areas with problems. This additional mass will include ways to improve absorption of the sound energy by means of acoustic rubber or foam to achieve the maximum sound reduction impacts.

Soundproofing Services Tullibody (FK10)

Any uninsulated voids in the room may require some form of muffling material to be installed between them to lessen sound resonation. If you envision such spaces as similar to a drum then you'll understand that by leaving floor or ceiling joist spaces and wall cavities empty, you're creating a sound amplifying area.

Mixed layers of differing density and mass materials do a better job of absorbing sound than a single layer of one material type. The diverse materials will isolate different noise frequencies and offer a more balanced auditory experience and feeling to a room.

Any soundproofing specialist in Tullibody must conform to the the Building Regulations (Part E), if dealing with a domestic property. Such legislation must be adopted so as to protect yourself and neighbours from being negatively impacted by noise pollution.

The Association of Noise Consultants and the Institute of Acoustics are recognised trade associations who offer qualifications and training, and are representative of the best in contractors and companies who provide soundproofing solutions. Any Tullibody company bearing ANC or IOA accreditation will have been appraised to make certain they provide the highest reliability, quality and standards of workmanship within the soundproofing industry.

Acoustic Mineral Wool

For you sound absorption needs in Tullibody, AMW (or acoustic mineral wool) is one of the handiest materials on the market for the soundproofing of homes or other buildings, and has various applications. Designed specifically for installation in the cavity spaces of floors, ceilings and walls, acoustic mineral wool is effective in enhancing acoustic performance, absorbing airborne sound and dampening vibrations.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Tullibody

AMW normally comes in 1200mm x 600mm "slabs" and is available in 25mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm thicknesses. Often partly made with recycled raw materials (around 20%), acoustic mineral wool is non-combustible and is chemically inert. It doesn't react with any materials or substances that it comes into contact with (i.e. masonry, metal wall ties, plastics, brickworketc), and does not encourage the growth of bacteria, fungi or mould.

Widely used in the building industry for its fire, thermal and acoustic insulation attributes, acoustic mineral wool is especially effective as a sound absorption infill when installed between stud partitions, flooring joists and suspended ceilings. To abide by the Building Regulations (Part E) in relation to separating walls and floors, AMW can be used along with other soundproofing products.

Soundproofing Foam Tullibody

I recently thought I'd look at what homeowners in Tullibody are searching for with regards to soundproofing, and it appears that when looking on Google and other search engines one of the most popular requests is for "soundproofing foam". And from a local point of view enquiries include things like "soundproofing foam Tullibody". That's really quite worrying, as it illustrates that Tullibody property owners are assuming that soundproofing foam is a suitable product for reducing their noise pollution problems.

It's not my intention to be the bearer of bad tidings, but most noise related issues can't be helped by acoustic foam, and if your aim is to filter out the racket caused by noisy next door neighbours in Tullibody, you'll need to look someplace else.

The customary "egg box" shaped foam, that appears to be the hallmark of soundproofing, is not actually designed for stopping the transmission of noise, but is meant for the reduction of echoing and resonation in music studios and similar settings, where it can also improve the acoustic performance of a room. It's not the right product preventing noise from travelling around your house, or preventing sound from penetrating a wall from a neighbouring building. Since acoustic foam is porous and spongy, it actually lets sound pass through it, and hasn't got the density to stop it.

It might be that you're actually building a music studio in your house in Tullibody, in which case this material may be useful for you.

Acoustic or Soundproofing Underlay Tullibody

One of the less disruptive methods of adding some soundproofing to your Tullibody home is through the installation of soundproofing underlays. These soundproofing underlays can be used successfully on both wooden and concrete floors, and beneath engineered wood, laminate, vinyl planks and carpet floor coverings.

Acoustic underlay is particularly effective when there is an issue with impact rather than airborne noise. Recent increases in the popularity of "hard" floor finishes in Tullibody homes, means that there are more and more problems with impact noise. The type of noise that we are talking about here is shifting furniture, general foot traffic and kids running around, in particular from rooms upstairs.

You shouldn't confuse acoustic underlay with standard carpet underlay, although some unscrupulous carpet suppliers may attempt to sell you this with claims of soundproofing attributes. If you have real noise issues be sure to invest in a quality acoustic underlay.

Whilst soundproofing underlay is an effective product for reducing impact noise, some are better than others when it comes to airborne noise such as deafening music, blaring TV's and shouting. Before picking an underlay product you should speak to your soundproofing specialist or supplier about your particular circumstances, and discuss the exact types of noise you're striving to minimise.
