Wall System 2
The Wall System 2 is our thinnest party wall soundproofing kit. The combination of soundproofing products adhere to an existing wall to achieve good levels of sound insulation, whilst keeping space loss in the room under 50mm. Products included in this system are:
This acoustic wall comprises of 25mm acoustic insulation which will block and absorb sound waves, therefore reducing airborne sound through the wall.
The layer of Noisestop 1+ panels combine mass and density to block airborne sound, the combination of acoustic plasterboard and the mass vinyl backing will reduce airborne sound and vibration of the plasterboard.
AC50 acoustic sealants are used to seal the edges of the boards and around the perimeter of the wall. Using acoustic sealant will ensure no small gaps are left between the boards for sound to escape.
Installing this wall soundproofing system yourself is straightforward. We’ve created a helpful installation guide for the Wall System 2 and you are welcome to get in touch with any questions you have.

Reduce Flanking Noise
When you are considering any form of wall soundproofing you should take into account flanking sound. Sound travels around a building through any cavities it can find. One of the easiest ways for sound to pass through is between floor cavities. Sound transferring through these areas is flanking sound. When soundproofing a wall you should consider reducing the chance of sound transferring through floor cavities between the floor joists.
If your floor joists are shared with a neighbouring property it is easy or sound to transfer through the floor. If you are soundproofing a party wall you should check to see if floor joists are going through to your neighbours property. Do this by checking which way your floorboards are running. If they run in the same direction as the wall the chances are you floor joists will be running into the wall, this will increase the chance of flanking sound transferring between the properties.
The easiest way to reduce flanking sound through your floors is to insulate between the floor joists. Remove a few floor boards up against the wall and fill the cavity against the wall with acoustic insulation 80kg/m³ would be a suitable density of slab to use. Fit the slabs against the wall, coming back into the room approximately 600mm, or the width off a slab.
