How to Soundproof Domestic Floors

Acoustic Floor Soundproofing Systems


Even in new build houses and flats, that are built using the correct materials and methods, loud noise produced by music and shouting etc may still be heard and can be particularly worse in the evening when normal daytime background noises have stopped and the ambient background noise is therefore much less.

These solutions are designed to reduce airborne noise and/or impact noise through floors subject to any flanking noise issues that may be present. Flanking noise is where sound by-passes the treated floor and travels perhaps around the sides and down the adjoining walls.

If you are suffering from noise problems travelling through a floor we offer four basic solutions. Click on the links to see more detail as well as enhancement options:-
