  • Soundproofing in Music Halls

    In my last semester of college I was required to take a music class in order to fulfill all of the university's requirements. This was the first class I had ever taken in the performing arts center building so I didn't really know what to expect. In this facility there were many practicing rooms for musicians as well as dance halls, classrooms and a theater. Needless to say there was a lot of noise constantly being produced from this building. Our classroom was right across the hall from various practice...

  • The Regulation of Sound

    In a previous post I described how my roommates and I soundproofed our house for a party. We made makeshift sound barriers out of cardboard boxes and they worked quite nicely. Apart from being a courteous neighbor, we did this to stay within the noise regulations of the area. We didn't want to exceed the noise limit, inviting the local law enforcement to shut the going away party down. The scope and nature of noise abatement laws vary according to jurisdiction. I'm not sure about the specifications of the noise...

  • Keeping the Noise to a Minimum

    In a modern suburban neighborhood, where houses are mere feet apart and all of the lawns intersect with one another, keeping the noise to a minimum can be a problem. The sound of children playing next door filters unhindered through the window, and the basketball game blaring from the other neighbors television set only adds to the noise. In situations like these, the only thing to do is purchase soundproofing products to lessen the noise and improve your style of living. Soundproofing for the average American does not need to...

  • Sound Insulation: Let's Make Music

    Imagine you are entering a sound booth to record a song that you have slaved over to perfect, and now every note is right. As soon as you belt out every word into the microphone a big time producer will be sweeping your single into every store and radio station in the nation and you will be a huge star. Now imagine that as you ready yourself for the first verse to escape your lips, the hammering of the office being redecorated next door fills the sound booth instead of...

  • "Green" Acoustic Panels

    The universal trend in today's society is to steer towards greener technologies and ways of life in all aspects of living. We are encouraged to find alternate transportation to work, choose reusable over plastic at the grocery store, wash our laundry in cold water, and recycle, recycle, recycle. Many companies and products are shifting their internal focus onto becoming more environmentally friendly in multiple aspects of their business as well. For example, various water bottle manufacturers are advertising that their water bottles are made from recycled materials, and that their...

Industry Information

Sound Insulation

Sound insulation, also known as acoustic insulation, is used for blocking unwanted or high levels of noise in certain spaces. Used in most recently constructed building interiors, sound insulation can take many forms but its main purpose is to absorb sound waves and energy so that it does not travel through a surface, or reverberate back into a space as noise pollution.

In buildings such as theaters, music and performance halls, recording studios, open plan offices and manufacturing facilities, noise can prove to be a disturbing, and often hazardous, factor. Therefore, controlling the levels of noise with sound insulation, as well as restricting it spreading further is an important feature of a building’s design. In conventional buildings, the noise transmitting through a wall or floor, which is energy, vibrates through any common surface including brick, concrete and drywall. Hard or flat surfaces transmit sounds and noise effectively and due to the rigid nature of buildings means that sounds, both airborne and structural, can travel further than might be anticipated. In buildings such as residential or office multi-storey buildings, or medical facilities and libraries etc where unwanted sounds could disrupt activities, sound insulation is important. There are a variety of soundproofing materials that can be used for sound insulation including: fiberglass, foam, rubber, aluminum composite, glass wool & polyethylene. Because of the flexible nature of these materials, they can be attached to any surface in any environment.

Acoustical insulation is designed and works similarly to soundproofing methods such as acoustic foam: it absorbs the frequencies transmitted by sound waves. Though sound insulation has the same general outcome of absorbing sound waves, different types of sound insulation achieve this in ways designed to meet different applications such as acoustic curtains, ceilings, floors and panels. For example, mineral wool has unique physical and chemical properties which are major factors in the utility of the material. The fibers in the wool are non-combustible and have melting temperatures in excess of 1800-2000 Fahrenheit. This is an important component of mineral wool, since the sound waves are converted to heat as it vibrates. Mineral wool acts as a sound insulator when sound waves passing through mineral wool are continually being broken up by the individual fibers. Another very effective form of sound insulation is dB-Bloc. This insulator is a thin mass loaded vinyl sound barrier material, designed to layer behind drywall and other finished wall or ceiling surfaces. The material combats against the bleed of noise transmitting through a common surface. Other acoustic insulation materials in similar applications include foam, fiberglass and rubber.
