Ceiling System 1

Ceiling System 1 is a high performing ceiling soundproofing solution that offers excellent airborne and impact sound reduction. With only 80mm of ceiling height loss this system offers excellent sound insulation with minimal loss of ceiling height. Ceiling System 1 achieves high levels of noise reduction due to the combination of materials and how they are installed on to the ceiling. The system combines two layers of insulation to increase airborne sound reduction.

Separation which is key to ceiling soundproofing is created by fitting the soundbreaker bars, acoustic hangers that reduce vibration through the buildings structure.

The final layer of boards is applied fixed directly into the soundbreaker bars. The Noisestop 1+ panels supplied as part of this solution combine acoustic plasterboard with high mass loaded vinyl sheeting. The resultant panel blocks sound and reduces vibration through the plasterboard.

  • Noise reduction against airborne and impact sound
  • 57dB reduction for airborne sound
  • 52dB reduction for impact sound
  • 30 minute fire protection
  • DIY ceiling soundproofing solution
  • Part E compliant for separating floors

Fitting Ceiling System 1

This soundproof ceiling solution uses the existing ceiling joists. Before you begin installing this solution you should remove the existing ceiling. An alternative method to installing this system would require insulating from the floor above.

If you don’t want to remove your ceilings you can remove the floorboards and access the cavity between the joists from above. Whichever option you choose follow these guidelines for fitting this system.

  • Insulate the cavity between the existing joists with the 100mm DFM acoustic insulation. Ensure no gaps are left and the whole area has been filled
  • Fix a counter batten to the underside of the ceiling joists, this will allow for the additional 50mm DFM acoustic insulation. If you have removed the ceilings fix straight into the exposed ceiling joists at right angles. If the ceiling is still up you will have to locate the joists and then fix the timber battens in place.
  • Fit the soundbreaker bars to the stud frame at 400mm centres using screws. More information on fitting soundbreaker bars is available here. Acoustic hangers will reduce vibration through the ceilings structure
  • Screw the Noisestop 1+ panels to the soundbreaker bars, no need to pre-drill any holes. Soundproof panels with high density barriers will block sound and reduce vibration
  • Apply AC50 acoustic sealant to the edge of each of the panels. Use the acoustic sealant around the perimeter of the ceiling to ensure the whole area is acoustically sealed

Ceiling preparation

Before work can commence on installing Ceiling System1 the existing plasterboard must be removed. Once the ceiling has been removed you will be left with exposed ceiling joists, you are now ready to fit Ceiling System 1.


Infill the existing ceiling joists with the 100mm acoustic insulation slabs between the ceiling joists. Using a long serrated knife or an old bread knife to cut the insulation slabs slightly larger then the

Opening between the joists, this will allow you to push the slabs between the joists to friction fit in place. Cover the whole ceiling area ensuring no gaps are left between the insulation, and between the insulation and the joists.

Step 2.

Once you have insulated between the joists you can now attach the battens to the underside of the joists. The battens are fixed perpendicular to the ceiling joists, Fix the battening in place with screws. Leave a gap of 590mm between each batten, this will allow for full slabs of the 50mm insulation to be inserted inside the battening. Completely fill the new battening with the 50mm acoustic insulation ensuring no gaps are left.

Step 3.

Fit the soundbreaker bars into the new battens at 300-350mm centres. Screw the soundbreaker bars into the battens using the pre-drilled holes that run along the edge of the bars, use dry wall or universal screws for this. The wider corrugated section o the bars should be facing down into the room when they are attached.

Step 4.

Fit the soundproof panels to the soundbreaker bars using dry wall or universal screws. The panels are fixed into the bars by screwing them into the corrugated section of the soundbreaker bar, you will not need to pre-drill any holes to fasten the boarding in place. You should have four bars per board to fix into. When you fit each board ensure they are tightly butted together, apply a bead of acoustic sealant along the edge of the boards to ensure they are acoustically sealed. You can also apply

sealant once you have installed all of the boards around the perimeter of the ceiling and between the edges of the panels to fill any small holes that might be left.

Allow a small gap around the edge of the ceiling, between the panels and the walls. This will reduce sound vibration through the walls and ceilings. Use the acoustic sealant to fill around the edge of the ceiling.

Step 5.

Finish off your ceiling with either a plaster skim or taping and filling the tapered edge of the panels.
