How to soundproof apartment

Soundproofing, in many apartments, is the right thing. However, probably, everyone who solved the problem of sound insulation of his own apartment, it is known that it is not enough just to purchase the material, revet the walls with this material and there will be no problems. The sound spreads through many, quite technical holes, even through sockets. Therefore, sound insulation, even premises, is not that of a whole apartment, it is a set of measures that also require a number of different factors to be taken into account.

In addition, the complexity of dealing with noise effects, both external and internal, in high-rise buildings is also caused by the location and construction of the house itself.

The most effective is sound insulation, which is located on the side of the noise source, to protect the apartment, for example, from loud sounds, it is better to use a material that has sound absorbing properties. Moreover, it is more efficient to isolate the neighboring apartment, rather than its own wall. Also, if at you, or at neighbors the floor squeaks from above, it is necessary to isolate not the ceiling, but the floor, either at you or at the neighbors.
Such a problem is explained by the fact that the sound coming from the noise source, reaching the walls and floors, is spreading, already inside all these building structures. That is why the sound insulation of the ceiling, or walls, the problem is not solved. There is an option to convince the neighbors to install sound insulation on their part. You can even share the costs, or if you strongly interfere, then take the cost yourself. In the event that this did not work out, there remains the option called “room in room”.

We should not forget that an important parameter for thermal insulation is not only its reliability, but also environmental friendliness. Even high-quality, but low-ecological sound insulation does more harm than good. So, you should carefully choose the soundproofing material.

What is a “room in a room”?

Demonstrate the effect of “room in the room” can be an example made from noise absorbing materials booths. The silence inside such a booth is almost complete. But, these are special booths, or rooms, like recording rooms. More difficult to isolate the apartment. Of the unpleasant moments can be noted the loss of space inside the insulated room. The sound is extinguished due to the thickness of the material, and many of the relatively inexpensive materials to quench the sound, such as mineral wool, membranes, mats, are soft and need to be covered with a layer of drywall.

Of the rigid panels should be noted “Fonstar”, produced by the German company “Wolf-Bavaria”, with a thickness of twelve millimeters, these panels provide better sound insulation for floors, walls and ceilings than many of the analogues. The panels are effective against both airborne and impact noise. Resistance to thirty-six dtsb for airborne noise, and thirty three dtsb for shock noise, respectively.
