Domestic Soundproofing Installers in Sussex
When we think about ways we could transform our homes, we tend to focus on light quality, space, textures or colour. Talking to our clients in Sussex though, a major issue that impacts on their quality of life is sound leakage and acoustics.
- Sound Leakage – This describes the issue of being able to hear your neighbours talking, or playing music. Equally it could be internal leakage with sound bleeding from room to room. This isn’t to do with people playing their music too loud; it’s about normal living sounds encroaching on your home. It occurs most often in older houses, as newer builds are subject to soundproofing building regs.
- Acoustic Bounce – Ever sat in a busy restaurant and found it difficult to hear what the people at your table are saying? If so, you’ve experienced acoustic bounce, and it can happen in domestic as well as public spaces. Sound waves bounce off plaster causing a slight echo which creates a distortion. Acoustic bounce reduces the sound quality of music, conversation and TV.
Soundproofing Walls – Airborne Noise
StanLil Contractors is an experienced soundproofing installation company that cares about improving the quality of life for its clients in Sussex. If you’re bothered by hearing your neighbours talking, or playing music, our recommendation would be the installation of acoustic plasterboard. This is 12.5mm plasterboard, made of higher density material in order to reduce noise transmission through walls or ceilings.
Whilst acoustic plasterboard will considerably improve your domestic sound insulation, it won’t cut out external sounds completely. For total insulation, we would suggest the combined use of acoustic plasterboard with DFM acoustic insulation, Soundbreaker Bars and Barrier Shield.
Acoustic Works – Sound Bounce
Synthetic acoustic plaster absorbs sound energy rather than reflecting it. Noise reverberation is reduced, diminishing the overall noise level, obliterating echo and counteracting distortion. The effect is a clear, crisp sound quality which enhances the pleasure of listening to music or talking with friends. Acoustic plaster looks just like traditional plaster, except that it improves your environment sound quality.
Sound can also be improved through the use of acoustic sprays. This is a sophistical acoustic plaster spray which offers a range of finishes and colours. It can be sprayed on to virtually any material and provides excellent sound absorption.
