Noisestop Tip – When installing soundproofing on a party wall, try to attach your new walls to the floor, ceiling and return walls. Reducing contact points between the party wall and the new soundproof wall reduces the chance of sound transfer between the existing wall and the new wall.
Reduce flanking noise when soundproofing a party wall
When 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 soundproofing a wall, you should consider reducing the chance of sound transferring through floor cavities between the floor joists.
If your floor joists are shared with a neighbouring property, it is easy or sounds to transfer through the floor. If you soundproof a party wall, you should check to see 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 floor joists will be running into the wall. Increasing 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 80kg/m³ would be a suitable density of slab to use. Fit the slabs against the wall, coming back into the room approximately 600mm, or the width of a slab.
