Soundproofing Timber Ceilings FAQs

The best method of soundproofing a ceiling is to use a combination of products in a soundproof system.

Soundproof systems will add mass, increase sound absorption and decouple the existing structure from the new.

We recommend using the AcoustiClip system to soundproof your ceilings. The combination of materials supplied with the AcoustiClip Timber Ceiling System comprises all the required products to sound insulate the ceiling against impact and airborne sounds effectively.

The best-performing timber joist ceiling solution is the Acousticlip Timber Joist System.

The product combinations supplied with this system achieve a high level of noise reduction against airborne and impact sounds.

Timber joist ceilings will benefit from the AcoustiClip’s decoupling effect and the increased mass/density and sound absorption of soundproof panels and acoustic insulation.

The best-performing sound insulation system for concrete ceilings is the Acousticlip Concrete Ceiling System.

The product combinations supplied with this system achieve a high level of noise reduction against airborne and impact sounds.

Concrete ceilings will benefit from the AcoustiClip’s decoupling effect and the increased mass/density and sound absorption of soundproof panels and acoustic insulation.

Unless you have very high ceilings, you will probably need to remove the plasterboard or lathe and plaster to soundproof your ceiling effectively.

Removing the existing ceiling will allow you to use acoustic insulation inside the ceiling joist, which is a great way to add mass. Using the AcoustiClip system, you will decouple the ceiling, which isolates the joist from the new ceiling.

Removing the ceiling means you can use the AcoustiClip Timber Ceiling System, our recommended solution.

If you are using downlighters in your ceiling, you should fit acoustic/fire hoods over the lights to ensure the acoustic integrity of the ceiling.

Stopping impact sound through the floor above is difficult to stop from below. In an ideal world, you would soundproof the floors to stop the impact sound. If you can’t access the floor, the best solution is to install a ceiling isolated from the existing.

If you have very high ceilings, you could install a completely new ceiling with joists without connection to the existing ceiling. If this option does not apply, you must use a system that isolates the new ceiling even if it is in contact with the joist.

The best solution for achieving isolation is to use The AcoustiClip Timber Ceiling System.
