Sustainable Soundproofing To Shout About Wednesday 26 September 2007 PDF Print We’re all becoming more environmentally aware with eco-friendly versions of everything from light bulbs to wall paint. But, when it comes to the very fabric of your home, it’s often too late and too expensive to opt for green building materials, right? Wrong says soundproofing and sound absorption specialists, Sound Service (Oxford) Ltd. With hundreds of soundproofing solutions available in the current market place for commercial and domestic use, Sound Service (Oxford) Ltd manufacture from sustainable materials such as recycled rubber where possible. “Very often, homeowners and tenants want to do their bit for the environment but can’t find a way that fits in with their budget and domestic requirements,” said Tom Sykes, Development Manager. “Even in new builds, it’s hard to incorporate eco-friendly materials into things such as walls and floors. 50 % of our soundproofing products are made from recycled or sustainable materials making practical home improvement more socially responsible.” According to World Health statistics, half of the UK population is currently being exposed to more than the recommend levels of noise pollution, making soundproofing materials an excellent starting point for those wanting to go green in their home. Noise pollution doesn’t just come from noisy industrial equipment, airplanes and trains but from everyday activities such as loud music, shouting, home improvements and cars. Soundproofing products can stop this noise seeping out into the surrounding environment, reducing noise pollution levels. Even noisy neighbours can be given the green treatment with a recycled rubber Acousticel wall panel. Designed to upgrade the sound insulation properties of party walls in the home and all types of domestic properties, the rubber mats are an environmentally friendly way to insulate a noisy neighbour with a minimum loss of room space. In addition to sourcing suppliers committed to a more sustainable manufacturing process, Sound Service (Oxford) Ltd are implementing a green office policy, making more use of recycled products.
