High density AMW and Sound Plasterboards Solution

This solution proves very effective where airborne noise is the main issue. As all the works goes underneath of the floorboards, there is no rise in the level of the floors after the soundproofing has been done.

  • lift up the existing floorboards.
  • fill the cavity between the joists with high density acoustic mineral wool 100mm (RS60)
  • attach batons on the side of the joists which act as support for the plasterboards.
  • cut to size and fit 19mm soundplank plasterboard
  • cut to size and fit 12.5mm soundshield plasterboard
  • seal all joints with acoustic mastic
  • re-lay the floorboards back.

SIF Underfloor Hangers Solution

This is a very good solution for both impact and airborne noise, that allows the keeping of the original wooden floorboards. Due to the amount of sound insulation that goes under the floorboards the level is raised by 7mm.

  • lift up the existing floorboards.
  • fill the cavity between the joists with high density acoustic mineral wool 100mm (RS60)
  • cut and fit SIF Underfloor Hangers on top of the existing joists
  • cut to size and fit 19mm soundplank plasterboard between the SIF hangers
  • re-lay the floorboards back

Resilient joists hoods

These special hoods can be added to the first 2 solutions to aid with reducing the impact noise.

Karma Floor

We supply and fit Karma Floor, which can be used to replace the old floor, which also improves the level of the soundproofing, mainly impact noise.

Sound deck (various sizes)

We supply and fit Sound deck flooring, which is laid on top of the existing floor, to improve the impact noise.

Sound barrier mats solutions

We are offering the following sound barrier mats, which are fitted on top of the floorboards, underneath the existing carpet.

  1. Sound barrier mats
  2. Soundproofing mats
  3. Acoustic underlay
  4. Impact reduction mats

There are a number of optional upgrades that can be added to the
above solutions, depending on the noise transference and the layout of the property. Please get in touch for more details
