We have many enquiries from people that want to soundproof their garage or shed so that little Johnny can bang away on his drums away from the earshot of their parents and neighbours. Thinking of the soundproofing before installing the drum kit is always the best thing to do and it is not a difficult task for any body used to handling small tools such as a saw, hammer and screwdriver (powered is best). All that has to be done is build a room within a room which is the basis of soundproofing any room. For better results, a room within a room within a room will do the trick but usually garages and sheds are not big enough so we will leave that concept of soundproofing to the likes of bigger studios such as within the BBC.
There is an article on our web site that describes in detail all that is needed to soundproof a garage or shed and takes you through a step by step instruction with photographs. To view this simply click on this link Soundproofing a Garage or Shed to take you there. If the link does not work then simply copy and paste it into your browser address bar. Once the soundproofing has been completed, sound absorption will be required within the room to absorb the reverberant noise otherwise the reverberation will amplify and distort the music being played and without it, the musician(s) will not be able to appreciate the true tone of the music produced. For more information on the sound absorbers we offer for studios click on the next link Studio Acoustic Products then scroll to the bottom of the page. The article and web pages describe all of the products required to achieve effective soundproofing and all of the products are also listed on our web site along with current prices.

Although most cars today are produced with more efficient soundproofing sometimes, for the more discerning car owner or owners of commercial vehicles, more soundproofing is required and this is where we can help. Among our wide range of soundproofing materials is our 13mm thick SAPT220 sound barrier mat and this mat is used to reduce noise penetration through the vehicle bulkhead, transmission hump and floor of the vehicle throughout. The SAPT220 sound barrier mat comprises a flexible, heavy soundproofing mat bonded to a layer of sound absorbing foam and the product is installed with the foam side against the substrate for maximum sound loss performance. Noise from the engine bay will also be reduced if the product is applied over all of the bulkhead and to do this it would normally be installed from inside the car and up under the dashboard as far as possible. If space allows, another layer can be installed on the top part of the bulkhead but from inside the engine bay. Further noise from the engine bay can be reduced if an effective, sound absorbing under bonnet pad is fitted. Most modern vehicles already have one of these but if it is missing or becomes damaged, it can be replaced with either our 12mm or 25mm fire resistant, self-adhesive, black sound absorbing foam. Once fitted this will help absorb the engine noise and reduce the noise from amplifying when it bounces off all the hard surfaces within the engine bay. As well as supplying soundproofing for cars and vans, we can also supply sound absorbing foam for the inside of panel vans and motor caravans so for more information and prices for these soundproofing and sound absorbing products, go to our web site www.keepitquiet.co.uk.
