Soundproof Floors 

Impact and Noise Insulation

Impact noise is a major problem with floors even where carpet is installed. This can be a noise problem particularly in residential units as overhead footsteps are transmitted as noise to the unit below.

There are various soundproofing methods to significantly reduce this impact noise and the selection of sound proof materials depends on the type of floor - slate, timber, tiles, carpet etc.

Acoustic underlay can be installed at build stage when planning a new home or commercial building or as a retro-fit solution.  

How to Soundproof your Floors

To successfully soundproof a floor you need to add a layer of acoustic underlay to isolate and block both the impact and airborne noise.  This result cannot be achieved with all impact noise products.  Very few are able to do both.  

Depending on your subfloor type (eg Timber or Concrete) and the finished floor material (eg Tiles, Hardwood, Floating timber or Carpet) our solution will vary.  If you can advise us of both, we can recommend the best options to minimise noise transfer via the floor.

Please note it is very important that you do not allow Hardwood or Tiles to touch the wall or skirting boards in the final installation as this will allow noise to structurally transmit down the walls.

Double Glazing Specialist

Installing a secondary retro-fit acoustic window or door will provide significant noise reduction to your home, office or commercial application. Traditional double glazing, or refitting thicker glass, will not give you the same level of noise reduction as a secondary system.  Science explains why - it is all about the air gap! Without an air gap, optimally 100mm overall, noise cannot effectively be broken down and reduced.
