Motor vehicle soundproofing

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.

 

SoundBlocker Membrane Sound Barrier Mat

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.
