Soundproofing Walls From Noisy Neighbours
Noisy Neighbour Problems
One of the main problems in resedential areas is caused by noisy neighbours! As people live closer together and housing estates going up all over the country, this is going to be an ever increasing problem.
Many times the sounds from your neighbours are not vindictive. Poor materials being used to construct properties leads to a higher transmission of sound through walls and floors. Every day sounds, such as the TV or kids playing, people going up and down stairs can be heard next door. Sound travels in waves and without materials in place to absorb or break up these waves, the noise will just pass through and lead to you hearing more than you should.
The good news is that there are many products available to aliviate this. We have products that can stop sound coming into your space, but also products that can help you to not become a noisy neighbour by absorbing the sounds that you make.
The first and most obvious place to start is the walls that seperate your home from your neighbour, as this will be where most of the noise travels through. Nice, long, flat walls are excellent for sound reflection, which will make a echo and allow the sound waves to travel around unobstructed making the noise sound louder. Thin walls will easily allow sound to travel right through. This is what we want to prevent so that the noise from your neighbours don’t effect your peace.
There are simple solutions to soundproofing walls such as thick wallpaper! This can help with soundproofing a wall as well as pictures and furniture that can also break up the sound and dissipate the waves. It won’t be a complete job, but it will help.
Ideally, you would have a product like the JCW sound board installed with the JCW easy fit acoustic mineral wool behind it. These products stop sound from travelling through the cavitys and offer sound protection similar to a recording studio.
Sound Absorbing Panels
If this level of protection is too much, we also offer a range of sound absorbing panels. These sit on your wall, similar to a canvas picture.
The idea of these is to absorb the sound in a room and prevent it travelling around.
These panels can be customised to your taste with your own design being printed on the front so that you can match the look that you have adapted your room to.
