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.

 

Anti-Vibration Mats for Isolating Washing Machine Noise

Our Anti-Vibration mats have been hugely popular for reducing structure borne noise from noisy vibrating equipment and machinery such as domestic washing machines and treadmills among other machinery that is not too heavy.  Until now the AV mats have been 20mm thick but have now been improved using a more resilient EPDM rubber that is softer and therefore acoustically more efficient.  This has meant that we have been able to reduce the thickness of the Anti-Vibration mats from 20mm down to 10mm with increased performance.  Because the thicker Anti-Vibration mats often could not be used due to limited space, the thinner 10mm Anti-Vibration mats can now be used in many more locations where space is more limited.

The Anti-Vibration mats are designed to isolate and absorb the noise and vibration from being transmitted into the floor where the equipment is sited so transmission of this noise is less likely to penetrate to other parts of the building.  Anti-Vibration mats are more often used to isolate washing machines from the floor in flats where noise nuisance to neighbours beneath can be more of a problem.
