It's crucial for us to learn how sound travels and is transmitted around an area before it is possible to find methods to stop it from happening.

Soundproofing Wishaw Scotland (ML2)

There are only two ways in which sound can move around a home:

1. By vibration of solid materials and objects.

2. By the vibration of air molecules.

Sound also travels through water, however unless you're looking at soundproofing a pool or aquarium we'll simply focus on its isolation via air and materials.


If you check around your area to be soundproofed and detect gaps around doors, open air-ducting, single glazed windows and even light fittings and electrical sockets, these are all aspects that can cause the transmission of sound. What we hear as sound is actually the vibration of air molecules reaching our ear drum. No matter the source of the sound; busy traffic, aircraft, music playing, heavy machinery or children playing, all sound is produced and transferred in precisely the same way.

If you try to think of your room as if it were a bucket, you're trying to find any leaks that need sealing before you can fill it with water.


Sound waves can also be reflected by, transferred to or absorbed by solid objects and structures. Sound will vibrate the floors, walls and ceilings of your rooms, and can cause a resonating effect that is transferred outside of the room itself. Even if a room is encased in a dense material which is resistant to sound, such as a concrete lined basement, the sound can sometimes be transmitted and perhaps even amplified to other rooms in the property.

How do we stop this resonation affecting others? Soundproofing obviously.


Consider covering a bare floor, which reflects and resonates sound, with a rug or carpet. Not only will such a simple solution reduce your noise pollution problem, it can also perk up the room. Hanging curtains and wall coverings can also suppress sound reflections and vibrations through windows and walls without the need for a team of professional soundproofing installers.

Search for areas around the rooms where sound can come in or escape from; electrical sockets, light fittings, windows and doors, and seal the holes or gaps. You can find specialist acoustic sealants in many builders merchants that repress the transmission of sound by suppressing the sound waves. Acoustic sealants can be a little more expensive than normal plaster or other sealant products, but the special design has far greater soundproofing performance and is worth the small additional cost.

If your room is an empty canvas and you are soundproofing as you renovate or decorate, look at installing a skin of plasterboard or soundboard, (also known as drywall, gypsum board or sheet rock). This is an economic and efficient soundproofing material owing to its dense nature. It is great for areas such as music studios, movie rooms or studies that are being built within a property. It's best to hire a certified contractor near you to fit the plasterboard unless you've got experience in its application.

  1. What kind of property or room do you want to soundproof? Is it a brick wall, a plasterboarded partition wall or a fully lined concrete wall etc.
  2. Which is the main point where the sound causes the biggest issues? i.e. Is it coming up through the floors, from the walls, through windows/doors or down from overhead, or is it a mix of all things.
  3. What sounds or noise are you wanting to subdue? i.e. External factors like neighbours playing loud music, street noise, trains etc, or internal sounds from a family room or music studio.
  4. How big is the space that needs soundproofing?

An established soundproofing firm in Wishaw will look into all these points to provide solutions to your sound issues over a range of budgets. The areas of your room that are causing the biggest issues may each need different remedies.

  1. Reduce sound the reverberation and amplification of sound.
  2. Update and enhance the amount of sound absorption.

Voids between joists might need insulation to eliminate the resonating space between them. Wall cavities or flooring and ceiling voids can all be likened to a drum, where the space inside acts as an amplifying area for unwanted sounds.

Soundproofing capabilities are improved if different densities and materials are used, rather than installing only one type of material. This is because the various different materials react in different ways with different frequencies and will provide a better solution to your soundproofing project.

Any soundproofing company in Wishaw must abide by the Part E of the Building Regulations, if dealing with a domestic property. This regulation has the purpose of protecting neighbours in the area from the impacts of noise pollution.

Watch out for contractors bearing the logos of the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) or the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) to make sure you're dealing with a business which is fully qualified and knowledgeable in the soundproofing industry. Only those Wishaw businesses that have been vetted and authorised by these organisations for quality, professionalism and reliability are permitted to display the logo.

Acoustic Mineral Wool

AMW (otherwise known as acoustic mineral wool) is one of the handiest materials available for soundproofing properties in Wishaw and has various applications for your sound absorption requirements. Dampening vibrations, absorbing sound waves and improving acoustic performance, acoustic mineral wool is designed specifically for installation in the cavity spaces of ceilings, floors and walls.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Wishaw

Commonly available in "slabs" of 600mm x 1200mm, AMW also comes in different thicknesses (25mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm). AMW is often made with recycled materials (around 20%), is non-combustible and has an inert chemical composition. It doesn't encourage the development of mould, bacteria or fungi, nor does it have a reaction with any substances or materials that it comes into close contact with (i.e. masonry, plastics, metal wall ties or brickwork).

Recognised in the building sector for its thermal, acoustic and fire insulation properties, AMW is especially effective as a sound absorption infill when installed in the spaces between stud partitioning, flooring joists and suspended ceilings. When applied side by side with other sound absorbing products, acoustic mineral wool can help in abiding by Part E of the Building Regulations when it comes to separating floors and walls....

Acoustic or Soundproofing Underlay Wishaw

If you would like to minimise the noise experienced in your home in Wishaw without causing a lot of disruption, why not think about installing some soundproofing or acoustic underlay on your flooring These are okay for use beneath engineered wood, vinyl planks, carpet or laminate floor coverings, and are suitable for both concrete and wood floors.

Where there are specific problems with impact noise as opposed to airborne noise, acoustic underlay is particularly beneficial. The current popularity of hard floor surface finishes means that impact noise is becoming an increasing issue for property owners in Wishaw. This is especially problematic in rooms upstairs, and the form of noise issues we are referring to here is shifting furniture, children stomping around and general footfall.

Do not confuse ordinary carpet underlay with authentic acoustic underlay, because some carpet suppliers might try to pass off such products, with claims that they are suitable substitutes. Make sure you buy a decent soundproofing underlay, if if you are experiencing significant noise problems.

Although the installation of soundproofing underlay can be really successful in reducing impact noise within your property, airborne noise such as shouting, loud music and blaring televisions, can be a whole different ball game, with some underlays being far better than others and having varying success rates. Before selecting a product you should speak to your soundproofing expert or supplier about your specific situation, and discuss the exact types of noise you are wanting to reduce.

Soundproofing Foam Wishaw

After carrying out some elementary keyphrase research, it appears that one of the most frequent searches on Google and other search engines is for "soundproofing foam" and for home and business owners in Wishaw, maybe "soundproofing foam Wishaw". Now, this suggests that lots of folks in Wishaw are looking for a solution to soundproof their homes, and are turning to acoustic foam to achieve this.

It isn't my intention to rain on anyone's parade, but most noise related issues can't be solved with acoustic foam, and if you are aiming to reduce the racket caused by noisy neighbours in Wishaw, you'll need to look someplace else.

Stopping the transmission of noise isn't actually the function of the familiar "egg box" shaped foam, which was actually created for use in music studios and comparable situations, where it can improve the acoustic performance of a room, and reduce reverberation, echoing and amplification. This product is not effective for stopping noise from penetrating a wall from a neighbouring property, or even as a barrier to stop sound from travelling around your property and being a nuisance. Seeing as it is porous, soundproofing foam actually absorbs sound and allows sound to pass through, rather than stopping it.

It may be that you're actually creating a music room in your home in Wishaw, in which case this foam could be extremely useful for you. (Tags: Acoustic Foam Wishaw, Music Studio Soundproofing Wishaw, Soundproofing Foam Wishaw, Soundproof Foam Wishaw).

Soundproof Curtains Wishaw

Soundproof curtains, also known as noise-reducing or acoustic curtains, have gained popularity as an efficient solution to mitigate unwanted external noise and create a quieter and more peaceful environment indoors. An attractive option for enhancing working or living spaces in Wishaw, these specialist curtains are designed to dampen, absorb and block sound waves.

Soundproof curtains are produced using a combination of dense materials that can absorb sound waves and reflect them. These curtains usually have layers of heavy fabrics, such as velvet, suede, or multiple layers of woven fabric, along with an inner core made of foam or mass-loaded vinyl. The level of sound that enters a room is effectively reduced by these materials working together to minimise the transmission of noise from the outside.

One of the key benefits of soundproof curtains is their simplicity of installation. Unlike regular soundproofing solutions that involve complicated construction or modification of ceilings, walls and floors, these curtains can be simply hung on existing curtain rods or tracks. These curtains are a convenient and cost-effective way for householders and renters in Wishaw to reduce noise without making permanent changes to their living spaces.

Soundproof curtains are both functional and aesthetically versatile. Offering a variety of designs, patterns and colours, property owners can choose options that complement the interior decor in their home. These curtains can effectively soundproof the room, while also contributing to its overall visual appeal.

Think about the specific noise issues you're experiencing when selecting soundproof curtains. Noise reduction performance varies between different curtains, and is normally measured in decibels (dB). Some curtains may insulate against external noise better than others, while some may focus on absorbing reverberation and echo within a room, making them ideal for home theatres, recording studios or office spaces.
