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 INDEPENDENT SYSTEM

Our entry level independent 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 and metal cross members span the room.
• Acoustic insulation is fitted into the frame.
• Timber battons are attached to the cross members.
• Two layers of acoustic boards are then fitted to battons.
• The perimeter and acoustic 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 £175 inc VAT per square metre.

Soundproofing Ceilings - Acoustic Shield 5

INDEPENDENT ACOUSTIC SHIELD 5 SYSTEM

     

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 Independent Soundproofing Ceiling System, the Acoustic Shield 5 Independent 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!

Soundproofing Ceilings - Maxi System

 INDEPENDENT ACOUSTIC SHIELD 10 SYSTEM

 This is rapidly becoming our best selling system as it has greatly 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 other Ceiling Systems, the Acoustic Shield 10 Independent Soundproofing Ceiling System includes the added layer of an acoustic 10kg shield sandwiched between the acoustic boards to create a more effective sound blocking barrier between source noises.

• A metal frame is attached to the walls and metal cross members span the room.
• Acoustic insulation is fitted into the frame.
• Timber battons are attached to the cross members.                                                                                                                                • Two layers of acoustic boards are then fitted to battons.

Soundproofing Ceilings - Standard

INDEPENDENT ACOUSTIC MAXI SYSTEM

This system is suitable for more extreme noise problems in restricted access areas. In addition to reducing noise in general, it also helps to reduce lower frequency sounds such as bass sounds, musical instruments and barking dogs. This is our top of the range system for reduction in airborne sound across low, mid and higher frequencies.

• A metal frame is attached to the walls and metal cross members span the room                                                               • Acoustic insulation is fitted into 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 150mm (6”), though we recommend a little more if you have the space.

• Costs from £280 inc VAT per square metre.
