Reduce flanking sound

When you are considering any form of wall soundproofing, you should take into account flanking sound. Sound travels around a building through any cavities it can find. One of the easiest ways for sound to pass through is between floor cavities. Sound transferring through these areas is flanking sound. When you soundproof a wall, you should reduce the chance of sound transferring through floor cavities between the joists.

If your floor joists are shared with a neighbouring property, it is easy for sounds to transfer through the floor. If you soundproof a party wall, check if floor joists are going through to your neighbour’s property. Do this by checking which way your floorboards are running. If they run in the same direction as the wall, the chances are your joists will be running into the wall. This will increase the chance of flanking sound transferring between the properties.

The easiest way to reduce flanking sound through your floors is to insulate between the floor joists. Remove a few floorboards up against the wall and fill the cavity against the wall with acoustic insulation. A slab with a density of 60kg/m³ would be suitable. Fit the slabs against the wall, coming back into the room approximately 600mm, or the width of a slab.
