Soundproofing your vinyl flooring

  Soundproofing vinyl flooring is on of the most efficient ways to reduce impact noise in your home. It also prevents noise coming from floors below and vice versa. In this article by Insulation Bee , we’ll be going through everything you need to know about soundproofing your vinyl flooring and its benefits. Acoustic Flooring Sound is sent by waves that travel through the air and are received through electrical signals to our brain. Sound waves can occur through many ways for example, objects dropping onto your vinyl flooring and residents trampling upon it. This is something known as impact sound and to reduce it you’re required to apply soundproofing Underlay, we’ll speak about it below. Underlay Underlay is a resilient layer that can be used under most Floor finishes.

Underlay for your vinyl flooring will have exceptionally good insulating qualit

Acoustic Mineral Wool

  Noise affects residents wellbeing and has important concerns on their health. Acoustic Mineral Wool Insulation of buildings eliminates the disturbance caused by common impact noise as well as airborne noise, i mproving the sound insulation  of buildings. What is Acoustic Mineral Wool? Acoustic Mineral Wool is specifically designed to be more effective than many other methods of sound control and is the best solution when looking for an effective acoustic insulation to give added soundproofing control when installed between the joists of floors and into stud partitions. Acoustic Mineral Wool is the preferred environmentally friendly sound absorber generally used in buildings and throughout the industry to give acoustic, thermal and fire insulation. Mineral wool, is  melted down rocks  that are aired and spun until it becomes fiber strands, which are then compressed into thick, dense slabs. Ideally used for its sound deadening and acoustic properties. Mineral Wool fibers trap air
  One of the more common complaints about houses with poor build quality is noise transfer, both from outside sources but in particular between the rooms in the house itself. Poor acoustics is something that could, and should, be considered at the design stage of a project. Sound transmission between homes, is a major problem in the UK which requires serious consideration from both architects and builders. Noise nuisance can be a serious cause of stress, and if not remedied it can affect our health and wellbeing as well as influencing everyday life.   What Does Soundproofing Do? To soundproof a home means to lower the intrusion of external noise, while also insulating it so noise cannot escape the space. In many cases acoustic insulation is used to prevent any noise from outside interfering with the residents within. This could be anything from voices, nearby building works or high levels of traffic noise. It also ensures neighbours and outside parties are not disturbed by the

Soundproofing floors from Noisy Neighbours below

  Separating floors are designed to limit or insulate against airborne sound, such as from speakers and impact sounds such as footsteps. The heavier the floor, the less sound is transmitted. Mass is designed into floors by using concrete or adding layers of dense material to the steel floor structure. The physical separation of a floor reduces the transmission of sound through a structure. The installation of a floating floor, which incorporates resilient layers and uses soft or acoustic floor coverings, is the best option for achieving the perfect soundproofing seal.   What is Acoustic Underlay? Acoustic underlay is specifically designed to help reduce airborne and impact sound within a floor system. It’s used in concrete floors and is great way of reducing impact sound with minimal fuss when it comes to installation. Acoustic underlay is essentially a rubber resilient layer that is traditionally installed underneath the final floor, the flooring from the structure of the buil

Soundproofing Flooring

  Stopping sound from entering your property is not always easy to diagnose. Sound travels quickly and manages to make its way into the structure quite easily. It is after all a form of energy, and quite simply, an invisible invader which is difficult to predict and control. However, with soundproofing materials and methods that are most suitable for your particular case, you should be able to significantly reduce sound transmission, and make your home far more peaceful and quieter than before.   What Does Soundproofing Mean? Soundproofing is interjecting sound waves before they reach the location you plan to soundproof. Soundproofing is done by setting up absorbing material or reducing it. Sounds travel through vibrations to stop them in their tracks, you have to put the material in front of it to absorb or break the vibration.   The two common types of noise are: Airborne sound  – such as sound from electronics, cookers, cars, and general speech, these become structural

Soundproofing Under Floor Heating

  Underfloor Heating systems are becoming the most popular form of heating within buildings. UFH systems provide extra space and evenly distributed heat when compared to traditional radiators. Underfloor heating provides increased heating efficiency. Underfloor heating run at much lower temperatures than other heating systems due to the increased surface area of a floor. But how good are they at Soundproofing? People who have installed a heating floor system in a room in their home can no longer live without it. Often installed with ceramic tiles, this type of heating system is comfortable for the feet and offers extra soundproofing benefits and its use of electricity is highly efficient saving you in bill costs.   Is Underfloor Heating soundproof? If it's installed professionally, like most things in a building, it should be good. But like radiators you may experience issues if air enters the system, which can generate noise.  Noise can also be produced if the clips are n
