Imagine one is studying for the exam next day and in the other room, younger brother is listening to music in a marginally raised volume? Ok! What if there is a meeting going on in the boardroom, million dollar related discussions are being discussed there and the printing machine right next to the wall of the boardroom is hindering the discussion? This is annoying and wrong at the same time, true! To stop/prevent one’s sound from being transmitted to the other room is quite difficult, but now in 2018 ‘sound insulation technology’ is there to save the day. Now, no matter where you are studying or planning your meeting if want it to be suitable and peaceful. Total two kinds of sound insulation can be witnessed one is airborne sound insulation and the other one is impact sound insulation.
This insulation has now been used in recording studios as well, instead of using super dense sound proofing foam Acoustic Panels, they use sound insulation installation in Melbourne (although it doesn’t solve the purpose 100% like normal sound proofing foam does). Considering easy to install normal sound proofing makes it a good choice for studio audience, actually it is also a professional product for noise reduction so it will always be the first choice for professional recording studios.
Sound transfer classification which is usually called as STC gives the calculation of how much sound a material like insulation can resist. Generally STC of approx. 50 or more means one wants to block around 60% or more noise between the rooms. No matter one wants to reduce noise among floors, ceiling or between walls sound insulation is an amazing tool to deal with it, furthermore another mechanism when constructing a new building fire and smoke proofing act even as sound absorption as well mostly airborne noises. There are two products if one research it, Rockwool comfortbatt and Rockwell safe n sound both are sound insulation latter is used for internal crawlspaces, attics and walls and the first one is usually used for the external of walls, attics and crawlspaces. In order to calculate one can used the Rockwool’s calculator on the official website which will allow its clients to know every important calculation about the sound insulation
Other than sound insulation there are certain other tips which one can adapt to make any space sound proof for example: Seal the windows, thin and tiny spaces cumulatively creates a lot of noise and allow enough space to external noises. Look around for cracks and other gaps which may create unwanted noises in a quiet space, use thick rugs and underpads in order to reduce the tempo of the sound like they do it in sound studios. They can easily use soft furnishings to help suppress the sound. Yes! Other than natural waterfall, birds humming sound or any other pleasing sound could be wanted anywhere but not unwanted sounds like (traffic, chatting and any other noise etc.) could be and should be stopped by sound insulation for sure.
