If you can hear noise coming up from the room / property below, and only have access to your floor. What options do you have do reduce the level of noise transmission?

Perhaps you live in a flat or apartment and you can hear noise from the property below – maybe music, the TV or just people moving around, talking and going about their business. Since you only have access to your side of the floor, you're going to need to soundproof your floor to minimise the airborne noise coming from below. So, what are your soundproofing options to minimise this kind of airborne noise from below?

Acoustilay Acoustic Underlay timber flooring soundproofing

Luckily for you, soundproofing experts Sound Reduction Systems (SRS) has a range of solutions for soundproofing floors from airborne noise. Acoustic flooring soundproofing solutions for your property include market leading proprietary underlay system, Acoustilay 15, and acoustic flooring overlay board, Maxideck.

On timber floors we recommend as heavy a product as possible, within reason of course. Acoustilay 15 provides great all round sound insulation in residential properties where more effective airborne noise insulation is required. 

Maxideck Sound Proofing for floors

Maxideck is also an extremely high-performance, timber-based acoustic flooring that is simply laid over existing floorboards as a floating floor system. There is a greater amount of work to install Maxideck compared with Acoustilay 15 but the results achieved should be higher, due to the higher mass of Maxideck at 27kg/m2.


Can’t find your construction here?

If none of the above fits the issues you're having with soundproofing floors from airborne noise from below, or maybe you have a more bespoke or specialised construction, don't worry. At SRS Ltd, we've got vast experience in these sort of ‘bespoke’ applications. Just drop an email to one of our technical team outlining your situation and we'll send you a bespoke specification. Or give us a call on 01204 380074 – we're always happy to chat about soundproofing.


Please note that acoustic problems can have many different causes. We have highlighted the most common, based on over 25 years experience in the industry, but it always best to talk to an advisor before purchase.
