SOUNDPROOFING CEILINGS

SOUNDPROOFING CEILINGS

There are a number of different systems on the market, some better than others. We have found over the years that the soundproofing systems below meet the criteria for superior sound reduction, on budget, with quick install and little or no mess. We also have other ceiling soundproofing systems that we can deploy depending on the situation.

Soundproofing Ceilings - Standard

STANDARD

Our entry level system works well to reduce airborne noise and some impact sounds coming through the ceiling. We find this system works well to reduce everyday noise.

• A metal frame is attached to the walls with acoustic hangers attached to the ceiling and the metal frames.
• Acoustic insulation is fitted above the frame.
• Acoustic bars are attached below the frame.
• Two layers of acoustic boards are then fitted to the acoustic bars.
• The perimeter and boards are sealed using acoustic sealant.
• Our award winning plasterer then skims the ceiling.
• A new light pendant is fitted.
• The ceiling is now ready to decorate.
• Minimum loss of height 150mm (6”), though we recommend a little more if you have the space.
• Costs from £105 +VAT per square metre.

Soundproofing Ceilings - Acoustic Shield 5

ACOUSTIC SHIELD 5

     

This is our most popular system as it has improved reduction of airborne and impact sounds, and also works well against lower frequency sounds such as deep voices and bass sounds.
Similar in construction to our Standard soundproofing ceiling system, the Acoustic Shield 5 soundproofing ceiling system includes the added layer of an acoustic shield sandwiched between the acoustic boards to create a more effective sound blocking barrier between source noises. A winner every time!

• A metal frame is attached to the walls with acoustic hangers attached to the ceiling and the metal frames.
• Acoustic insulation is fitted above the frame.
• Acoustic bars are attached below the frame.
• Two layers of acoustic boards are then fitted to the acoustic bars.
• The acoustic shield 5 (AS5) is fitted between the two boards.
• The perimeter and boards are sealed using acoustic sealant.
• Our award winning plasterer then skims the ceiling.
• A new light pendant is fitted.
• The ceiling is now ready to decorate.
• Minimum loss of height 150mm (6”), though we recommend a little more if you have the space.
• Costs from £165 +VAT per square metre.

Soundproofing Ceilings - Maxi System

MAXI SYSTEM

This is our top of the range system, working well to reduce impact and airborne sound across low, mid and higher frequencies.


• A metal frame is attached to the walls with acoustic hangers attached to the ceiling and the metal frames.
• Acoustic insulation is fitted above the frame.
• Specialist premium acoustic composite boards with overlap joints are glued and screwed together to create a monolithic ceiling. These boards are made from gypsum and cement held together by a polymeric core, and are only 17mm thick. When cutting these boards we use a high end dust extraction system fitted to a specialist saw to minimise dust on the job.
• The boards are attached to the frame and sheeted over with a regular acoustic board to give maximum sound reduction.
• The perimeters are sealed using acoustic sealant.
• Our award winning plasterer then skims the ceiling.
• A new light pendant is fitted.
• The ceiling is now ready to decorate.
• Minimum loss of height 125mm (5”), though we recommend a little more if you have the space.
• Costs from £215 +VAT per square metre.
