Solutions to Soundproof Stud Walls
Stud Wall Soundproofing Solutions
Browse a range of solutions to soundproof stud walls, including slim direct to wall panels up to complete stud wall soundproofing kits
Choosing the right solutions to soundproof stud walls depends on the type of sounds you are trying to stop. Only trying to block airborne sounds such as conversation or TV noise, you can apply a direct to wall panel solution to the stud wall. Soundproof a stud wall against higher airborne noise levels and impact/vibration sounds with a combination of products. A soundproofing system will reduce higher noise levels than the slim direct to wall panels.
These stud wall soundproofing solutions are used in homes and workplaces to stop unwanted sounds.
Soundproofing Systems for Stud Walls
Soundproofing systems block higher noise levels including vibration and impact sounds as well as the lower bass type noises.
Soundproof systems are the best solutions to soundproof stud walls. A complete soundproofing system will stop airborne and vibration noise through an existing stud wall. Reduce unwanted noise by adding mass/density and creating isolation by decoupling the stud frame from the soundproof boards. The range of solutions includes the materials you will need to soundproof internal stud walls in your home or workplace.
Direct to Wall Panels to Soundproof Stud Walls
Applying soundproof panels directly on to your walls will reduce clear conversation and TV noise
These direct to wall soundproofing panels are a great solution to upgrade existing stud walls that require an additional level of sound insulation. Looking for a solution to soundproof your stud walls without compromising living space? Direct to wall panels will reduce airborne sounds from transferring between rooms. By adding mass and absorption to the stud walls, soundproof panels will block unwanted sounds, which will increase privacy in your home or workplace.
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.
