Soundstop panels are our most popular party wall soundproofing product (see case studies) due to the ease of fitting and quality of the final result achieved. If you wish to calculate or buy the materials just click on the blue calculator icon below: When soundproofing a wall it is necessary to improve three basic components.
The soundstop panels improves each of these elements. - We offer two versions of the panel solution the second adding some more mass to give extra performance.
SoundStop noise insulation panels take advantage of advances in acoustic control technology to strike a highly effective balance between increasing the mass of the transmission wall and introducing a dampening air spring element of acoustic mineral wool. Soundstop panels come in boards which are 2.4m x0.9m they are just 52mm ( 2inches) thick.
*The SoundStop panels can be upgraded from providing 13db increased acoustic protection to 16 db increased acoustic protection through the addition of a 15mm layer of SoundBloc plaster board. This is added by simply gluing it to the sound panels. Fitting Instructions
If you are thinking of refitting electrical sockets back into the wall. You might be advised to line your electrical boxes with acoustic putty.
We are often asked what is the final finish and do I need a plasterer? We provide all the materials necessary to achieve a smooth decorate-able finish. Please see video below on dry-lining. The wall you end with will be similar in appearance to the video. We supply the finishing compound that allows you to achieve a smooth wall without plastering. All items are automatically added when you press the blue calculator.
The SoundStop panels themselves are a uniquely bonded gypsum and acoustic mineral wool product, which provide different degrees of soundproofing performance. They have been tested to exacting standards (BS EN ISO 140) and conform to all UK Health and Safety regulations. The best results for soundstop panels are achieved with solid brick party walls. Breeze block walls may suffer from flanking transmission problems so any soundproofing treatments require an assessment of this possible difficulty Flanking Transmission problems.
A note on fireplaces: We are frequently asked whether it is necessary to run wall soundproofing around the chimney breast on a party wall? While there is no definitive answer on this question, we are of the opinion that soundproofing the alcoves either side is usually sufficient. This is because chimneys are typically constructed to be fire and smoke proof and are at least of double brick construction, whereas the walls either side, the alcoves, maybe poorly constructed and of single brick. Of course there are exceptions, but in the majority of cases you can reduce your labour and time considerably by just doing the alcoves. Due to the acoustic nature of stud walls and timber framed walls we would recommend a different set of treatments when upgrading these walls as described in solution 5 stud wall soundproofing. Example results based on typical party wall construction of 100mm brick wall (45-47db)
|Increase in acoustic privacy|
|52mm Soundstop panels||13db|
|52mm Soundstop panels plus 15mm SoundBloc plasterboard||16db|
So for example after fitting 52mm panels your wall could have a 60 db rating, which is an excellent level of acoustic privacy. Remember these are average figures across a range of frequencies. In practice all sound proofing works better at higher frequencies. Our solution is designed to be fitted to just your side of the wall. If you can install to the other side (the neighbours side) of the wall you will experience an even greater acoustic privacy. See our case studies
