Soundproofing Walls FAQs
The best way to soundproof walls is to use a combination of products in a soundproof system.
Adding mass and density, decoupling the existing structure from the new and increasing the sound absorption capability of the wall ensures the highest noise reduction.
The Acousticlip System is the best solution for soundproofing stud walls. The AcoustiClip Stud Wall System combines all the elements required to soundproof your walls successfully, making it our recommended stud wall soundproofing solution.
Wall soundproofing really will stop noise coming through your walls from your neighbour. Stopping every noise type and level is impossible, but you can significantly reduce unwanted sounds using the correct solution.
Our most popular solution is the Acousticlip Direct to Wall System.
If you require soundproofing and space loss to be kept to a minimum, then the best product is the Noisestop Silent Panel.
Competent DIYers can install all of our wall soundproofing solutions. We recommend using local tradespeople if you do not want to fit the soundproofing yourself. Local builders, joiners and plasterers would be the most suitable tradespeople to contact. We can provide full-fitting guides for all our soundproofing solutions.
We recommend soundproofing the alcove areas. You should be able to leave the chimney breast as this area tends to have additional layers of brick which add mass to the area.
Our soundproof products and soundproofing systems are finished with acoustic plasterboard. Once the soundproofing is installed, you can bring the wall up to decorative standards without adding additional boarding. The most common method to finish the walls is to have them plastered. Alternatively, you can tape and join the edges along the tapered edge of the boards before decorating. This means you don’t need a plasterer to skim your wall. Once brought up to decorative standard you can use lining paper or paint to decorate the panels.
Yes, you can reinstate electrical outlets to your soundproofed wall. Use acoustic putty pads inside electrical back boxes to ensure the acoustic integrity of the wall. If you are extending wires through the wall for lights, then we recommend sealing the hole using an acoustic sealant.
Lightweight fittings can be secured into the soundproofing. Pictures and mirrors can be attached to the soundproofing.

Essential Soundproofing Rules
Achieve the very best wall soundproofing results by following these essential soundproofing rules. These are adding mass/density to the area, isolating or decoupling the new structure from the existing and increasing sound absorption. These rules of soundproofing apply whether you are attempting to soundproof a stud wall or solid brick walls. Increasing mass makes it harder for the sound to transfer. The variety of high-mass products will block a great range of sounds. Decoupling the structure will reduce sound as it vibrates through a solid structure. Increasing absorption allows the wall to absorb the sound energy. These soundproofing principles are built into the design and specification of our wall soundproofing products and systems.
Adding mass/density to an area blocks sound transfer. Using materials with different densities will reduce a greater range of frequencies.
Creating isolation or decoupling the existing structure from the new enhances sound insulation.
Increase sound absorption with materials that absorb sound waves and reduce the energy that carries the sound.
