Introduction to Soundproofing Your Ceilings in Brighton

When soundproofing ceilings the most common noise issues relate to impact noise and in some cases airborne noise. If you have sound problems from above, one or both these may be causing you trouble.

Impact Noise

This occurs when one object collides with another. The resonant sound can be heard from the floor above you and sometimes through an adjoining wall. Kitchen wall cupboards and adjacent staircases can exacerbate impact noise trouble. These structural factors carry the sound but something still has to cause it. Footsteps above, a chair being moved, a table leg dragging, something dropped onto a wooden or tiled floor, all of these set the sound in motion. By the time it reaches you it could be a problem – a major problem if occurring over time as impact noise travels freely through a structure.

Reducing Impact

Noise with ceiling soundproofing prevention is the best means of combatting impact noise. At Brighton Soundproofing we would like to stop it before it happens. This means working directly with the source of the noise, usually the floor. New developments in noise solutions continually provide fresh approaches. The installation of an Independent Ceiling Solution is a modern, effective way of dealing with the problem of impact noise, but we do have many other effective ceiling solutions.

Airborne Noise

Sound waves travel freely through the air until they reach part of a building that they cause to vibrate. These vibrations travel through that part of the building and are radiated out of the other side. Typical airborne transmission sources are neighbours talking, audio from televisions, computer sound and radio transmissions.

Reducing Airborne Noise

The utilisation of mass and absorption techniques is one of the best ways to treat airborne noise. At Brighton Soundproofing we like to use products such as Rockwool slabs that we install between empty cavities in joists or stud walls to absorb all types of airborne noise. Products such as Tecsound membranes and Sound Matting’s mass loaded vinyl can also be added to increase mass, thus allowing less noise to transmit through an area.
