Soundproof party walls against loud neighbour noise using the Noisestop Silent Panel. Our premium slim soundproofing wall panel is suitable on brick party walls and internal stud walls. Soundproof walls against high airborne noise levels apply directly onto the wall to block noise transfer between rooms. Ensure the very best level of soundproofing using a single stand-alone solution.
The Noisestop Silent Panel soundproofs rooms without losing valuable living space.
Apply the Noisestop Silent Panel directly onto the wall that requires soundproofing; this type of installation means you reduce space loss. Installation of the panels is simple and can be carried out by homeowners as well as professional tradespeople.
Don’t be subjected to listening to the neighbour’s television or conversation. Apply the Noisestop Silent Panel to your walls to alleviate the stress that a noisy neighbour can cause.
Noisestop Silent Panels Specifications
- Panel thickness 30mm
- Panel size 1200mm x 1200mm (1.44sqm)
- Weight 40kg (27.8km/m²)
- Fire rating 30 minutes
- Noise reduction 52dB
- Reduce airborne sounds through your walls (loud voices and dogs barking)
- Apply directly onto solid walls or stud walls
- Skim directly onto the panels, alternatively tape and fill the tapered edge
Noise reduction and decibels – A three dB increase is equivalent to halving the level of sound. The higher the value for the airborne sound the better the product performs. The lower the stated figure for impact sound the better the product performs. Read the decibels explained guide for more help.
Composition of the Noisestop Silent Panel 30mm
- 15mm soundblock plasterboard, tapered edge. Ready to plaster skim or tape and fill the tapered edge
- 5kg/m² mass loaded vinyl barrier mat, soundproofing qualities similar to lead
- 8mm acoustic grade closed-cell foam
- 10kg/m² mass loaded vinyl barrier mat, soundproofing qualities similar to lead
The Noisestop Silent Panel comes pre-laminated, combining the four elements listed.
The composition of our soundproofing wall panel ensures it will block the most common domestic sounds from transferring between rooms. Apply onto the surface of your walls, either fixing directly into solid walls, alternatively upgrade stud walls by applying the panels over the existing plasterboard.
Fitting Noisestop Silent Panels
NOTE: When the panels are installed, the plasterboard layer faces into the room, the acoustic membrane on the back of the board goes onto the wall.
- Ensure the surface you are applying the panels is in good condition, make good any remedial work to the existing wall to ensure it is flat and secure before you attach the panels
- Remove skirting boards, coving and extend electrical outlets, wall linings such as wallpaper do not need to be removed before the installation
- Begin by installing the first row of panels; use 2-3mm packers or equivalent between the floor and the boards; this will support them and ensure they are isolated from the floor.
- Apply the Noisestop Silent Panel to the walls using nine hammer fixings per board. The composition of the panel will absorb any potential noise transfer across the fixings
- Use acoustic sealant between each panel as you put them together
- Leave a 2-3mm gap around the perimeter of the wall to reduce flanking sound transmission, apply an acoustic sealant to fill the gap once the installation is complete
- Cut the panels using a hand saw or circular saw
- Skim plaster or tape and fill the tapered edge
- Upon completion of the soundproofing, reinstate the skirting and coving
- If you are reinstating electrical outlets, use acoustic putty pads inside recessed back boxes
NOTE ON FLANKING SOUND – Before installing any soundproofing system, you should consider any flanking paths for the sound. These are areas around the wall where sound will bypass the soundproofing and enter the room. The most common flanking course for sounds would be above or below the wall, which would be through a floor or ceiling cavity. If these areas are constructed from timber joists, you should consider filling the void above or below the area with DFM acoustic insulation to stop potential flanking noise.

Make sure you are getting the right soundproofing for your needs. Understanding the most common types of noise and how to stop them will help you decide the right solution.
Different Types of Sound
- Airborne sounds – Conversation, TV noise and radios are examples of airborne sound. The best way to stop airborne sounds is to add mass/density to the walls or ceilings.
- Impact/vibration sounds – Footfall and moving furniture across a floor are examples of impact sounds. The best way to reduce these sounds is to create separation.
In summary, the best way to reduce airborne sounds is by increasing the mass of the area you would like to soundproof. Reducing impact/vibration sounds is achieved by creating separation within the structure.
Reducing Impact and Airborne Sounds
By following some of these steps, you will ensure you get the best level of soundproofing for your room.
- Mass/Density – Increasing the mass and density of the area you are soundproofing will block airborne sounds from transferring between rooms. You will increase the mass of walls and ceilings using materials such as soundproof panels or high-density acoustic insulation slabs.
- Separation – Incorporating separation within the structure will reduce vibration and impact sounds transferring between rooms. Achieve separation by building independent stud walls and ceilings. If you don’t have the space in the room, you can use acoustic clips and resilient channels to decouple the wall and ceiling.
- Absorption – Use materials that are going to absorb sounds. Acoustic insulation is suitable for sound absorption as it converts the sound waves into heat as it passes through the insulation. Dense mass loaded barriers will also dampen and absorb sound.
