Soundproofing for your walls and don’t be disturbed by noisy neighbours
One of the more common enquiries we receive is ‘what should I use to soundproof a wall?’ Wall soundproofing solutions come in two categories, thin acoustic wall panels or acoustic wall kits combining soundproof materials.
Use soundproof wall panels to soundproof walls in rooms that have a limited amount of space. Sound insulate walls with this type of panel to stop mid-range noise, conversation, TV’s and radios. Reduce day to day noise from a neighbouring property using thin direct to wall panels.

How to improve the sound insulation between floors
Improving the sound insulation between floors will depend on if you can soundproof your floor, ceiling or both. If you live in a flat, you will probably only be able to soundproof the ceiling. If you are soundproofing your home, you will have access to the floor and ceiling. Noisestop Systems provide a variety of products to increase the sound insulation between floors from above or below.
Soundproofing a floor to stop impact sound is best done from above. Laying acoustic flooring over the floor will offer the best results for the sound of footfall or furniture being moved across the floor. If you want to go further, installing acoustic floating floors offers the very best solution for soundproofing between floors.

To ensure you get the most out of your ceiling soundproofing, increase the insulation and create separation. Ceiling voids should be insulated with acoustic insulation, DFM slabs 100mm/80kg/m³. These are a great choice for domestic ceiling soundproofing. Use Soundbreaker bars to isolate the ceiling from the joists. Choose from our range of soundproof panels to finish the ceiling.
