Noisestop Acoustic Panel is our highest performing stand alone direct to wall soundproofing panel. At only 22.5mm thick it is one o the thinnest wall soundproofing solutions available. The high performance against airborne noise and the minimal space loss in the room means the Noisestop Acoustic Panel is an ideal solution for noisy neighbours. Soundproof rooms without compromising space in your home and at work. The panel comprises of acoustic plasterboard, which is denser than standard plasterboard, the density blocks airborne sounds. The back off the boards have a triple laminated layer comprising of two layers of 2.5mm mass loaded vinyl, which add mass to the board and reduce vibration o the plasterboard. The reduction in vibration increases the over all reduction of sound. The centre of the triple laminated layer is a 5mm acoustic foam, this foam core absorbs sound as it passes through the panel. This combination of materials ensure sound is absorbed, blocked and vibration is reduced, ensuring high levels of airborne sound are reduced.
- DIY soundprooing
- Thin soundprooing solution or walls, can be applied to ceilings
- 30 minute fire rating
- 50dB reduction
- Noisy neighbour solution
- Part E compliant for separating walls
- Bond directly to walls using Smart Tack Adhesive
An ideal solution or separating walls to comply with Part E Building Regulations. This panel is suitable or use in rooms that require higher levels of sound insulation like studios and home cinemas, use with acoustic insulation and soundbreaker bars to form acoustic walls and ceilings. Apply over plasterboard ceilings to reduce airborne sound between floors, or as part of a ceiling soundproofing system.
Fitting Noisestop Acoustic Panels
The Noisestop Acoustic Panel is applied directly on to the walls surface using adhesive. If you prefer the panels can be fixed to a wall using screws and plugs. The laminated layer on the back of these boards will reduce sound transfer through the screws. These boards can also be used to upgrade acoustic wall systems by fitting them to studs or soundbreaker bars. If you are soundproofing ceilings use these panels over an existing ceiling, or as part of a new acoustic ceiling.
- Apply directly on to walls using Smart Tack Adhesive
- Screw panels on to stud frames, soundbreaker bars or ceiling joists
- Plaster directly on to the panel
- Tapered edges mean you can tape and fill the edges as an alternative to plastering
Install the panels directly on to walls with Smart Tack Adhesive. Spray both surfaces, the back of the board and the wall it is being applied. If you would prefer to use mechanical fixings you can use 9 screws per board to fit them to walls. The panels are easy to cut, use a hand saw or a circular saw to cut the panels to shape. Apply acoustic sealant to the edge of each board, apply a bead of sealant to each edge and around the perimeter of the wall. The panels can be plastered, or alternatively tape and fill the tapered edges prior to decorating.
Fitting these panels as part of wall and ceiling soundproofing systems will require screwing them into stud frames, soundbreaker bars or ceiling joists. You do not have to pre-drill these panels before fitting them to any of these surfaces. Screw through the panel, take care not to over tighten the screws. When applying the boards to ceilings they will require additional fixings, use 16 screws per board for ceilings. Plaster skim or tape and fill the tapered edge of the panels prior to decorating.
Noisestop Tip – Apply the acoustic sealant to the edge of each board as you install them before you put the next one up. By applying the sealant as you go you will ensure a really good acoustic seal at the end. Once you have finished you can go round filling any small areas that require filling.

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 you soundproof 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 80k/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.
