Soundproofing Walls - Standard

STANDARD WALL SOUNDPROOFING

Our entry level soundproofing system works well to reduce sound levels through your walls.

• A metal frame is attached to the adjacent walls, floor and ceiling with a space between the existing wall and the new sound reduction wall system.
• Acoustic insulation is fitted into the frame.
• Acoustic bars are then attached to 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 wall.
• New isolated skirting is fitted.
• The wall is now ready to decorate.
• We can also deal with any electrical sockets, television points, phone sockets, internet points, radiators and coving/cornice.
• Minimum loss of space is 125mm (5”). 150mm (6”) is the normal loss, though we recommend a little more if you have the space.
• Costs from £200 inc VAT per square metre.

Soundproofing Walls - Acoustic Shield 5

 

ACOUSTIC SHIELD 5

     

This is our most popular system. As well as reducing noise in general, it helps to reduce lower frequency sounds such as deep voices and bass sounds.
It is similar in construction to our Standard soundproofing wall system, with the additional layer of an acoustic shield laminated between the acoustic boards to create a more effective sound blocking barrier between source noises. A winner every time!

Soundproofing Walls - Maxi System

 

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.

• Specialist premium acoustic composite boards with overlap joints are glued and screwed together to create a monolithic wall. These boards area made from gypsum and cement held together by a polymeric core, and are only 17mm thick. When cutting this premium acoustic board we use a high end dust extraction system fitted to a specialist saw to minimize 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 wall.
• New isolated skirting is fitted.
• The wall is now ready to decorate.
• We can also deal with any electrical sockets, television points, phone sockets, internet points, radiators and coving/cornice.

Wall Soundproofing FAQs

Below are a range of FAQs commonly asked about Soundproofing of walls, both domestic and commercial.

 

How much space is used on a wall in order to achieve noise reduction?

On a single wall, approximately 160mm (6 ¼”) is required. In most cases, the change in room size is not noticed. We can do a slimline system if required. However, we have found that the thicker system is preferable.

 

How long does it take to soundproof a typical wall?

To soundproof a wall, it will take around 2.5 days.

 

How will the acoustic wall panels affect my laminated or hardwood floors?

We are able to expertly cut the floors back to meet the new wall system. The floor will finish neatly with your wall.

 

After the soundproofing system has been installed, how is the wall finished?

A skim of plaster is expertly applied, ready for a fresh coat of paint or wallpaper.

 

How much will it cost to soundproof my wall?

To supply and fit a typical wall, it will cost approximately £2700.00 Inc. VAT, depending on which system is used.

 

How long after the soundproofing system has been fitted can I paint or wallpaper the wall or walls?

Please allow for three days until the newly fitted soundproofed wall has completed dried.

 

Can you install the soundproofing to the underside of the cornice?

At soundproofing4U, we have found that sealing the entire wall is far more effective in maximising the sound reduction. We will install a new plaster cornice or cove. We can template your existing cornice/coving to exactly match if required.
