A client in Cumbria was so impressed with the performance of our SoundBlocker Membrane sound barrier mat that he has ordered 18 more rolls to upgrade the soundproofing of the ceilings in the rest of his property. At only 1mm thick, SoundBlocker Membrane is designed to be sandwiched between two layers of high density Acoustic Plasterboard to break up and decouple the mass of the plasterboard with a product with a much higher mass. This sandwich of unequal layers will perform far better acoustically and will be more efficient at stopping noise penetration from above and below. Because SoundBlocker Membrane is so thin, it can be difficult to fix to the ceiling so we advise that it is glued to the second layer of plasterboard using our Sta-Stuk aerosol contact adhesive then screw the treated sheet of acoustic plasterboard up as one but you will need help because the panel will be so much heavier.

The M20AD system of soundproofing a party wall has been ordered for use to upgrade the soundproofing of more party walls in Braintree. The popular Thin Wall soundproofing system is preferred because it takes up minimal space at only 45 to 50mm overall thickness depending on the thickness of Acoustic Plasterboard and yet can help reduce normal noise levels from neighbours that you would not normally expect to hear.. Provided there are no flanking noise issues where sound can flank around the wall the M20AD solution will be in excess of the minimum Building Regulation requirements of 43dB for any existing wall that is being upgraded. M20AD when tested on a single skin masonry brick wall returned an airborne soundproofing value of 48dB. M20AD is produced using recycled vehicle tyres and to our knowledge, is the most effective soundproofing treatment at minimum thickness. For more information on M20AD go to the domestic section of our web site www.keepitquiet.co.uk
When upgrading the soundproofing of a wall or soundproofing a ceiling, you will almost certainly require plasterboard and the best plasterboard to use is high density Acoustic Plasterboard. This is because it has a higher mass then normal plasterboard and double thickness of this is required on ceilings and stud partitions alike. A double thickness is also required in our Thin Wall Soundproofing system that replaces the thicker stud partitions. For more information on these products, go to www.keepitquiet.co.uk
