Soundproof floors with an acoustic barrier mat

Barrier Shield can be used in many different applications as a sound insulation mat. It is suitable for use as a floor soundproof underlay. Lay over timber floors to reduce airborne sound transfer through the floor. Quick and easy to fit making these soundproof mats will increase the sound insulation of domestic floors. Combine with acoustic insulation for even higher levels of soundproofing.

Soundproof Walls and Ceilings

When you combine Barrier Shield with acoustic plasterboard you will also increase the sound insulation performance of the plasterboard. Making it suitable for use on walls and ceilings. Rooms that require additional levels of soundproofing like studios and home cinemas should consider this type of soundproof matting as part of an acoustic system.

The best method of soundproofing enclosures

Due to its versatility and flexibility barrier Shield is used to soundproof enclosures. line the inside of any enclosure made of light weight materials such as ply or MDF to reduce airborne sound escaping. The best method of soundproofing enclosures is to combine it with an acoustic grade foam, eggbox foam would be a suitable acoustic foam to combine with the Barrier Shield. The acoustic foam absorbs sound as it bounces around inside the enclosure.

Installing Barrier Shield

Installing the product is very simple. Use a sharp knife or heavy duty scissors to cut the sheets to size. If you are laying them over a floor they can be loose laid in a brick bond pattern. Tape the edges down with a heavy duty duct tape.

Fitting the sheets to walls and ceilings you should use clout nails with a large head. Hang the sheets as an acoustic curtain to stud frames before you fit the plasterboard.

You should use a strong contact adhesive to stick the sheets to enclosures. The Smart Tack Adhesive will stick Barrier Shield to most flat surfaces.

Noisestop Barrier Shield

Barrier Shield soundproof matsMass loaded barrier membrane that has multiple uses, soundproofing for walls, floors, ceilings and enclosures.

Noisestop Systems Barrier Shield is a versatile high density soundproof mat with a variety of applications. The matting is used to add mass and density to the area that it is applied. Combine with sheet materials such as plasterboard to form an effective sound barrier for walls and ceilings. Barrier Shield will reduce airborne sound transfer when laid over timber floors. Increase the mass of the lining when building a soundproof enclosure by applying Barrier Shield to the enclosure.

  • Weight 5kg and 10kg
  • Sheets 1200mm x 1200mm
  • Coverage 1.44 sqm

Barrier Shield mats are easy to handle and can be cut to any shape with a sharp knife or a heavy duty pair of scissors. Depending on the type of installation you are doing the mats can be fixed to most substrates with a strong spray adhesive, we recommend using Smart Tack adhesive. The mats can also be fixed in place using nails or heavy duty staples.

Fitting Barrier Shield to soundproof walls and ceilings

Improve the sound insulation of walls and ceilings with Barrier Shield. The mats can be applied to wall and ceiling solutions in a number of ways. To increase the sound insulation of stud walls apply the matting directly to the stud frame by nailing the acoustic barrier to the framework. This way the matting will act as an acoustic curtain to block sound that would normally transfer through light weight stud walls.

Apply Barrier Shield to the back of sheet materials such as plasterboard. The product will increase the mass and density of the panels. By applying it to the back of plasterboards it will reduce vibration of the board, stopping sound transferring. Attach the mats with a spray adhesive to hold them in place before you fit the boards.

Combine Barrier Shield with acoustic insulation slabs, acoustic plasterboard and soundbreaker bars to construct acoustic systems to soundproof walls and ceilings.

Fitting Barrier Shield to floors

Lay Barrier Shield across timber sub floors to increase the level of sound insulation with this type of floor construction. Sheets should be butted together ensuring no gaps are left. Install the mats right up to the edge of the room, the whole floor area should be covered. The mats do not require fixing to the sub floor. If you are converting a property or carrying out work that has to meet Building Regulation Part ‘e’ you will have to glue the sheets down. Fix the mats to the sub floor with a floor grade adhesive or a spray adhesive.

Soundproof enclosures with Barrier Shield

Soundproof an enclosure by applying the mats to the surface of the enclosures. For the best level of soundproofing for enclosures use the mats combined with the acoustic grade eggbox foam.

Use an adhesive to bond the Barrier Shield to the inside of the enclosure. Use Smart Tack adhesive to bond the material as this has excellent adhesion strength. Once the enclosure has bee lined with the mats fix the eggbox foam over the mats. The build up of the enclosure should be, the enclosure on the outside, the barrier mats applied to the inside of the enclosure and the eggbox foam over the barrier mats.

Combining the two materials to the inside of the enclosure will increase the mass of the enclosure and absorb sound as it reverberates inside. This method of soundproofing is used for household pumps and cab be scaled up to larger pieces of machinery.
