Description

Wall System 2 is a slim soundproofing solution that offers good noise reduction against airborne sounds through solid party walls. Increase the sound absorption of party walls with the combination of materials supplied with this soundproofing system. Acoustic insulation inside the stud frame absorbs sound that would typically pass through the wall. The Noisestop 1+ Panel is a soundproof board that comprises a 10kg mass loaded vinyl and acoustic plasterboard. This combination makes it the best panel to combine with other products to form a complete soundproof system.

Soundproof systems will effectively block higher levels of noise than any individual soundproofing product. Combining various products into soundproof systems ensures a higher reduction across a broader range of frequencies; this ultimately stops higher levels of airborne sounds and vibration.

Wall System 2 Specifications

  • System thickness 43mm (including the stud frame)
  • Fire rating 30 minutes
  • Noise reduction 54dB
  • Reduce airborne sounds through your walls
  • Apply onto solid party walls
  • Part E compliant solution for separating walls

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.

Wall System 2 is used in a variety of applications to reduce the passage of sound. Soundproof rooms that are limited in the amount of space they can afford to lose, a noisy neighbour solution. Suitable for use when looking to soundproof offices and commercial buildings requiring additional sound insulation levels.

Composition of Wall System 2

  • Install Wall System 2 onto a stud frame. If you are building a new stud wall, isolate the top and bottom with isolation Strips (not included with the kit)
  • Fill the cavity of the stud frame with the DFM acoustic insulation slabs to reduce sound resonating inside the void
  • Screw the Noisestop 1+ Panel to the stud frame to further increase the mass and density of the acoustic wall; the 10kg mass loaded vinyl membrane is pre-bonded to the acoustic plasterboard, further increasing the sound dampening performance
  • Acoustic sealant is applied between each panel and to the perimeter of the wall to ensure an airtight seal

Combining soundproofing materials to create a soundproofing system is the best way to soundproof a room. Take a look at the individual components supplied when you buy this solution.

Fitting Wall System 2

Wall System 2 Soundproofing

 

  • Install a stud frame if one is not already in place
  • Fill inside the cavity between each stud with the DFM acoustic insulation slabs. Ensure the slabs are packed tightly between the studs
  • Attach the Noisestop 1+ Panel to the stud frame with screws. Leave a 2-3mm gap around the perimeter of the wall to avoid noise transfer. Apply a bead of acoustic sealant to each joint and the edge of the wall
  • If you are reinstating electrical outlets, use acoustic putty pads inside the back boxes

NOTE ON FLANKING SOUND – Prior to 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.

Home Wall Soundproofing

Make sure you are getting the right home 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 home.

  • 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.

    Wall System 2 Soundproofing
    Wall System 2

    Thin wall soundproofing system at only 43mm this solution offers great soundproofing with limited space loss

    Wall System 2 provides soundproofing for domestic party walls as well as forming an acoustic wall to be used as an internal lining to improve the sound insulation of existing walls.

    Fitting Wall System 2

    Wall System 2 is one of the thinnest wall soundproofing systems available. This solution combines thin high density soundproof products to reduce airborne sound through party walls. System 2 is based on using 25mm battens fixed directly to the wall. The soundproofing is then installed as detailed. Fitting Wall System 2 reduces good levels of airborne sound and with space loss to the room of less than 50mm is one of the thinnest solutions for noisy neighbours.

    Wall preparation

    Before you begin installing the new acoustic wall you should remove all wall decorations, skirting boards, coving and picture rails. Electrical outlets should be removed prior to any work, extend electrical cable as required to reinstate once the work is complete. All decorative features that have been removed can be reinstated once the wall is finished.

    Step 1.

    Installing the frame

    To ensure space loss to the room is kept to a minimum the battening should be fixed to the wall being soundproofed. The 25mm frame should be fixed to the wall using a strong no nails adhesive or mechanically fixed with nails or screws. Always ensure the batten is well secured to the wall before commencing the installation.

    Step 2.

    Insulating the stud frame

    The new stud frames should be filled with the DFM acoustic insulation. The stud frame should be filled with no gaps between the insulation or the insulation and the stud work.

    Acoustic insulation can be cut with a hand saw or an old bread knife. Measure the opening between the studs and cut the insulation approximately 5mm wider. Cutting the slabs wider than the opening will mean the slabs will friction fit between the studs. You shouldn’t need to use fixing to hold the slabs in place; if necessary a screw or nail can be fastened into the side of the stud to hold the insulation in place.

    Step 3.

    Fitting the soundproof panels

    The soundproof panels are fastened to the stud work using dry wall or universal screws. You will not need to drill the panels before you attach them. Screw straight through the panel into the timber frame. Do not over tighten the screws, they should be flush or just below the surface of the plasterboard face.

    NOTE: the panels are fitted with the blue face of the acoustic plasterboard facing into the room. The mass loaded barrier mat on the back of the board faces into the wall.

     When you reach the edges of the wall you will need to cut the soundproof boards. All Noisestop soundproof panels can be cut with a Stanley knife or hand saw. If you have power tools they can be cut with circular saws or a jigsaw.

    It is important to ensure that every edge of the panels is well fitted and sealed. Do not leave gaps between the boards; ensure they are butted up together. Use AC50 acoustic sealant along the edges of each panel as you install them. Once you’ve fitted the first board run a bead of sealant along the edge and then push the next panel up to the board. This will guarantee each panel has been sealed along the edge with acoustic sealant. Once you have fitted all the boards you can go round the wall making sure any gaps have been filled with the acoustic sealant.

    Step 4.

    Finishing you wall

    Because all the soundproof panels in the Noisestop range are manufactured with a 12.5mm acoustic plasterboard with tapered edges you can chose to finish the panels in two different ways. Because these panels are plasterboard you can plaster skim straight on to the face of the panels using multi skim thin coat plaster. Alternatively the tapered edge along two edges of the panel can be taped, filled and sanded.

    Reinstate your wall furniture as necessary. Electrical points can be fitted back into the wall. To avoid cutting out sections of the wall we would recommend surface mounted sockets. Always ensure that any areas that have been removed are sealed with acoustic sealant.

    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.
