Soundproofing your music room is vital if you're a budding musician and want to practise without the worry of disturbing the rest of the household, or even neighbours. You might also be a music teacher, working from a converted garage or spare room, with music constantly seeping from your walls and disturbing the neighbours.
Whether you're a classical violinist or the next Black Sabbath, soundproofing your music room will mean hassle-free harmonies. At Sound Reduction Systems (SRS), we've been at the forefront of high-performance, practical materials and installations that have soundproofed music rooms for 25 years. With our experience and knowledge, you'll get the best acoustic solution for your needs.
SRS soundproofing for music rooms
Unless you live in a stately home, chances are that your music room isn't bespoke. It might be your garage or a spare bedroom. If you play a cello, flute, drums or guitar in there, you're going to be a nuisance to the rest of the family and possibly to neighbours. Luckily, soundproofing your music room needn't be as expensive as you might imagine.
The perfect solution when soundproofing for walls and ceilings of your music room is SRS's Maxiboard. Maxiboard is a wall and ceiling soundproofing system that's separate from the wall. The Maxiboard sits on resilient bars to create a semi-independent, dense skin on the workshop wall or ceiling. Best of all, because it sits only 6cms away from the wall, you lose little of your valuable space.
Maxiboard is a highly effective soundproofing system for music rooms, and it's very simple and quick to install. You can use Maxiboard to soundproof everything from a single wall to the entire room, including the ceiling, so that you get to practise your music in a soundproof box.
Soundproofing music-room floors
If you want to go further and ensure that your music room is completely soundproofed, at SRS, we have more products that can help. If your music room is on the first floor, it can help to soundproof the floor. With Acoustilay, the original acoustic underlay, you can effectively reduce impact and airborne noise. It's quick and simple to install and adds little to the floor build-up. Acoustilay is compatible with a wide range of floor finishes.
Internal music-room acoustic panels
You can soundproof your music room, but you should also consider internal acoustics. That's because, when you perform on a stage, you'll get very different acoustics from those you get in your makeshift music room. That's because of the smaller size of the room and because of the surface finishes used. Thankfully, with SRS's Sonata acoustic panels, you can make your music room more absorbent, reduce reverberation and improve the acoustics. Sonata panels are simple and quick to install onto walls or ceilings. Sonata absorbent panels come in a range of sizes, thicknesses and colours to suit every music room.
Our professional, Institute of Acoustics registered technical department is on hand to give advice on all of our high performance acoustic products. We're delighted to offer advice on any noise problem, be it a sound insulation or sound absorption issue.
