Our busy schedules mean we are subjected to noise in our workplaces and in our homes. Constantly being surrounded by noise can cause stress and anxiety. That is why we have developed a range of soundproofing products to restore peace. The Noisestop 1+ Panel offers a soundproof solution for low-level background noises applied to ceilings and walls. Once this panel is combined with other acoustic products and incorporated into a soundproof system, you will get increased levels of sound insulation for the very best possible levels of noise reduction.

We incorporate the Noisestop 1+ Panel within most of our soundproofing systems for walls and ceilings.

This panel is the best choice for combining materials in a soundproofing system for your walls and ceilings. When integrating soundproofing products into a system, you don’t need the thickest or the heaviest products; these tend to be more expensive. The most important consideration is how it works alongside the other materials. It is the combination of soundproof materials that is important rather than any single product. We chose to use this panel in our systems because it is the slimmest, economical to purchase and offers the same performance when combined into a system as the more expensive stand-alone soundproofing panels.

Noisestop 1+ Panel Specifications

  • Panel thickness 18mm
  • Panel size 1200mm x 1200mm (1.44sqm)
  • Noise reduction 42dB
  • Weight 27kg (18.75kg/m²)
  • Fire rating 30 minutes
  • Reduce airborne sounds through your walls (muffled conversation, background TV noise)
  • Apply directly onto solid walls, stud walls and ceilings
  • Skim directly onto the panels, alternatively tape and fill the tapered edge

Composition of the Noisestop 1+ Panel

  • 12.5mm soundblock plasterboard, tapered edge. Ready to plaster skim or tape and fill the tapered edge
  • 10kg/m² mass loaded vinyl barrier mat, soundproofing qualities similar to lead

The Noisestop 1+ Panel comes pre-laminated, combining the soundproof membrane and the acoustic plasterboard. Because the product is already bonded it makes for a much easier and quicker installation rather than having to apply the membrane separately as with other systems.

The product’s composition ensures it will block airborne sound. For the best results, combine with other soundproofing products to form a soundproofing system. For the best levels of sound reduction, use a combination of materials that incorporate the Noisestop 1+ Panel.

Fitting Noisestop 1+ Panel

This image shows the Noisestop 1+ panel as part of a wall soundproofing system combing, acoustic insulation, and hangers. This is the best way to use the Noisestop 1+ Panel when installed as part of a complete system.

wall system 1


NOTE: When the panel is installed, the plasterboard layer faces into the room, and the acoustic membrane on the back of the board goes onto the wall or ceiling. This panel is best suited for use with acoustic hangers, soundbreaker bars or timber and metal stud frames to form an acoustic system for walls and ceilings.

The Noisestop 1+ Panel works best when installed as part of a complete system for walls or ceilings.

  • 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.
  • Fix the panels to acoustic hangers, stud frames or ceiling joists using standard dry-wall screws. You should use Hammer Fixings, nine per board to fit the boards directly onto solid walls; alternatively, use the Smart Tack adhesive for flat finished walls, one tin per five boards.
  • 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, it is important to 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 path for sounds would be above or below the wall, this would be through a floor or ceiling cavity. If these areas are constructed from timber joists, you should consider filling the cavities above or below the area with DFM acoustic insulation to stop potential flanking noise.

Wall and Ceiling Soundproofing

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.

    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 from 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 know 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 coverage 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 driver’s 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 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 will issue a refund once they have been received.

    *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.

    How do you cut the boards to fit?

    Answer: The soundproof boards are easy to cut using a sharp stanley knife or a hand saw. You can use jigsaws and circular saws if you have them. You do not need any special cutting tools.

    How do you attach the boards to the Soundbreaker Bars?

    Answer: The boards are screwed straight on to the bars, there is no pre-drilling required. Once you have fixed the bars in place screw through the boards into the bars. The wide corrugated fixing area on the bar acts as the stud frame holding the boards in place. The panels can be fitted to bars on walls and ceilings in this way. You can use dry wall screws or any universal type screw to attach the boards.

    What is the best way of finishing these soundproof panels?

    Answer: All the soundproof panels in the Noisestop range come with an acoustic plasterboard outer face which has a tapered edge. The boards can either be plastered or the edge can be taped and filled ready to decorate.

    Can I attach things on to the wall afterwards?

    Answer: Once you have completed the work you can treat the wall as you would any other wall. Try to avoid too many fixing going through the wall as this may cause sound transfer. Suitable plugs and screws should be used to fix to the wall, we would recommend plasterboard plugs be used for hanging lightweight items.

    Can I stick these boards directly on to the wall?

    Answer: If you are looking for a thin soundproofing solution you can use an adhesive to stick these panels to your walls. We recommend the Smart tack adhesive for this type of installation.

    What do you use these soundproof panels for?

    Answer: This type of panel can be used as a stand alone product to stop low levels of airborne sound transfer. These boards are widely used in our wall and ceiling soundproofing kits as part of a combination of products to build acoustic walls and ceilings. Combine these panels with DFM acoustic insulation, Soundbreaker Bars and acoustic sealants for the best results.
