Home Soundproofing Solutions

The most common kind of noise problem in the domestic sector is unwanted sound coming through a seperating wall or floor/ceilling construction from a neighbouring property. At best, this kind of noise problem will cause annoyance and ruin the enjoyment of the property, but in extreme cases it can lead to stress, the deterioration of neighbour relationships, and health issues.  Our range of high performance domestic soundproofing products can assist with noisy neighbour problems.

A word of caution - Please be careful when researching acoustic products online.  There are a number of ways of rating sound insulation performance and it is important to compare like for like. Laboratory measurements and ratings of sound insulation performance, taken under ideal conditions will always give an apparently better result than measurements taken on site under 'real world' conditions. The overall performance given by any home soundproofing products will depend on site conditions and installation standards.
