It can be applied to either masonry or stud walls and is also suitable to reduce flanking noise up and down walls.

It is also an ideal solution where existing walls have failed a pre-completion test.

Fire And Acoustic Socket Box Inserts

An acoustic insulation system for wall sockets to eliminate the transfer of sound through walls.

Acoustic Isolation Strip

A sound isolating system used to prevent sound transfer through partitioning or party walls in all forms of construction where there is any point of contact.

Our acoustic isolation strip is a multi purpose sound isolating barrier system used to prevent sound transfer through stud partitioning or party walls in all forms of construction where there is any point of contact.

Manufactured from bonded, re-cycled rubber, acoustic isolation strip ensures acoustic integrity is maintained wherever there is any point of contact, for example where partition walls meet floors or ceilings or where stud battens are to be fixed to an existing wall to form and extra cavity and carry acoustic products.

It is 5mm thick and available in roll form in a variety of widths to suit the requirements of individual projects and constructions.

It is always used in conjunction with other soundproofing products and sound control measures to reduce noise transmission through wall, floors and ceilings.

JCW RR20

A highly effective soundproofing and vibration absorbing mat.

JCW Vibrablock is a versatile, multi purpose soundproofing and vibration absorbing mat made from recycled rubber.

It is very effective when used as part of a direct to wall soundproofing system. This system involves involves gluing and screwing an initial layer of 20mm JCW Vibrablock, acting as a high mass rubber sound barrier, on to the existing party wall surface and then covering it with a double layer of 12.5mm JCW Acoustic Plasterboard.

This product combination is highly recommended for noisy neighbour situations and once applied has minimal impact on available room space.

At the heart of this system, the high density 20mm thick JCW Vibrablock rubber based sound barrier mat is structured to absorb and block a significant amount of airborne noise which can easily penetrate poorly insulated party walls.

On top of this two layers of 12.5mm JCW Acoustic Plasterboard are then applied.

A simple to fit direct to wall system for existing stud walls and solid walls.

In summary this is a highly flexible and easy to install direct to wall solution which will combat normal levels of noise expected from noisy neighbours.

Alternatively JCW Vibrablock can be used on its own as a sound deadening barrier or anti vibration and anti fatigue mat.

JCW Acoustic Easy Fit Mineral Wool Slab

This acoustic grade rock mineral wool slab absorbs airborne sound in the cavity partitions of timber and metal party walls, significantly improving acoustic performance and reducing reverberation.

A flexible acoustic grade mineral wool, JCW Acoustic Easy Fit Mineral Wool Slab is supplied in packs of easy to handle 1200mm x 600mm slabs, in a variety of thicknesses.

It can be installed in the cavity spaces of walls, floors and ceilings. An efficient noise absorber which easily outperforms standard mineral wool insulation because it is more than twice the density!

Its use only adds minimally to the overall mass of the structure.

It can also be used between flooring joists and in ceilings as a sound absorbing infill to reduce airborne noise. It is supplied un-faced.

JCW Silent Wall Premier System

This system has been designed to dramatically upgrade the sound insulation of existing walls, particularly light weight partition constructions.

Suitable for all types of dwelling it is based on the combination of two highly effective soundproofing wallboards which fix directly to existing walls; JCW Silent Wall, a double pre-laminated sound blocker layer and an additional final layer of JCW Acoustic Plasterboard.

This is a great solution for noisy neighbours and a proven way of complying with Part E of the Building Regulations.

It's a slim and easy to fit acoustic wall system that works by adding mass, a vital component in successful sound insulation, without significant loss of available living space.

For those with extremely noisy situations to remedy, we can also offer our JCW Home Studio Wall System as a complete solution with an even higher acoustic performance

JCW Acoustic Sealant and Applicator Gun

JCW Acoustic Sealant is a high strength, permanently flexible white acoustic sealant and adhesive specifically formulated for sealing and bonding plasterboard

It is ideal for sealing the edges of plasterboard systems and filling and sealing any holes where services have been installed, thereby preventing the leakage of noise

It is paintable once cured – see below for more detail about approximate curing times – and is manufactured to a professional trade quality.

This non-flammable sealant is water based, solvent free, is easy to use and clean up and adheres well to just about all substrates used in the building and construction industry

It works equally well on acoustic insulation boards and can be successfully used on walls, ceiling and dry lining applications. Use it to fill large gaps in existing timber floorboards or spaces between floor decking before overalying with acoustic materials.

It is particularly recommended for sealing the perimeters and edges of floating floors before applying additional soundproofing materials in order to further enhance acoustic performance.

JCW Acoustic Plasterboard

JCW Acoustic Plasterboard has a higher density core than standard building plasterboard, making it a good noise blocker when used on stud walls or timber joisted ceilings.

With the high volumes of noise experienced in many areas today, you may sometimes require a plasterboard that delivers exceptionally high levels of sound insulation. When you do, this is the product to use.

JCW Acoustic Plasterboard is easy to install and also has a good impact resistance.
