Ceiling System 2

Ceiling System 2 is our most popular ceiling soundproofing solution that offers excellent airborne and impact sound reduction. With only minimal loss of ceiling height this system offers excellent sound insulation with minimal loss of ceiling height. Ceiling System 2 achieves the high levels of noise reduction due to the combination of materials and how they are installed on to the ceiling. The layer of 100mm DFM acoustic insulation blocks and absorbs airborne sound transfer through the ceiling.

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 12.5mm acoustic plasterboard and a 10kg mass vinyl sheet, the resultant panel blocks sound and reduces vibration through the plasterboard. When the full solution is combined both impact and airborne sound are greatly reduced.

  • Noise reduction against airborne and impact sound
  • 56dB reduction for airborne sound
  • 30 minute fire protection
  • DIY soundproofing solution
  • Part E compliant for separating floors

Fitting Ceiling System 2

This soundproof ceiling solution utilises the existing ceiling joists. Before you begin installing this solution you should remove the existing ceiling. Once the ceiling joists have been exposed you can begin the installation.

  • Insulate the cavity between the existing joists with the 100mm acoustic insulation. Ensure no gaps are left and the whole area has been filled
  • 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 System2  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 2.

Step 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.

Fit the soundbreaker bars to the underside of the ceiling joists at 300-350mm centres. Screw the soundbreaker bars into the joists 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 3.

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 4.

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

We will then contact you once the order is just about ready to be despatched to confirm a suitable delivery date. If you would like to discuss delivery times with us please call 01423 339163.

How will my order be delivered?

The majority of orders we despatch are sent on pallets. We use a network of pallet distribution companies across the UK. All our pallet deliveries are kerbside deliveries. This means the pallet will be delivered as near to the delivery address as possible. Pallets are unloaded form the vehicles with a pallet truck. If it is possible the pallets can be dropped on driveways if they are accessible with the pallet truck.

Pallet deliveries are normally made on 7.5 tonne vehicles that are similar in size to bin lorries. Occasionally larger vehicles are used. If you know of any reason why it might be difficult to deliver to your address with this type of vehicle please let us so we can pass the information on to the delivery company. Typical delivery problems can include parking restrictions, access issues for certain size vehicles, low bridges and overhanging trees. Call 01423 339163 if you are unsure.

Unfortunately the delivery drivers will not bring the goods into your property or unload the individual items from the pallets.

Many of our items are heavy and often require two people to carry them safely.

All orders sent on pallets are wrapped and secured to the pallet to protect them while in transit. Once you have received your order we would recommend storing the materials inside. If you are planning on leaving your goods outside you should use additional covering to protect them from any adverse weather conditions.

Damaged or missing items

In the unfortunate event that items are damaged or missing when your order arrives you should sign damaged or missing items on the drivers paperwork. Call 01423339163 to let us know of the issue to allow us to quickly rectify the problem.

We might ask for a picture of the damage, this is to speed up the process of arranging a suitable solution.

To enable us to quickly resolve any issues with your delivery it is important that you sign for your delivery when it arrives.


Can I return items from my order? Yes you can return unused items from your order that are in a salable condition. We can arrange to collect any unused materials and have them brought back to us. We would refund the cost of the items returned back to us less the shipping cost incurred by the company collecting the items. The cost to return the goods would be confirmed at the point of arranging the return. The refund would be paid once the goods have been brought back and have been checked at our warehouse.

Alternatively you can arrange to return the materials back to us and we would issue a refund once they have been received.

Special delivery note if you order soundbreaker bars as part of a wall or ceiling kit

If you order a wall or ceiling soundproofing kit that include soundbreaker bars these will be delivered separately from the pallet. we are not able to despatch the bars with the pallet. The soundbreaker bars are too long to go with the pallet so they will be delivered separately. No additional charges are incurred for the separate deliveries. We try to ensure the pallet and the bars arrive on the same day, occasionally this might not happen. Normally both deliveries are made within 24 hours of each other.

*All prices displayed are exclusive of VAT @ 20%. This will be added at the end of the checkout process before you confirm your order.

If you require any additional information regarding deliveries please give us a call 01423 339163, alternatively get in touch via our contacts page.
