Soundproofing Products to Shout About Monday 1 October 2007 PDF Print Sound Service (Oxford) Ltd is pleased to announce the release of their new product line. The information below outlines the new items and their main benefits. Acoustic Quilt Our Acoustic Quilt consists of a laminate of 25mm Acoustic Fibreglass, 2Kg acoustic membrane and 25mm Acoustic Fibreglass. The Acoustic Quilt performs approx 4 times better than Acoustic Grade Mineral Wool as it has a barrier layer sandwiched in the middle which blocks airborne sound better than lead. The Acoustic Quilt exceeds the new Document E Resistance to the Passage of Sound' making it an attractive product for soundproofing modern building techniques. Acoustic Quilt can up rate a typical 12.5mm partition by up to 16dB! Acoustic Quilt can up rate a typical floor section by up to 13dB! Environmental Information. The quilting used in this product is a glass mineral wool product, manufactured from silica sand, the Earth's most abundant naturally occurring mineral. Glass mineral wool is one of the most environmentally friendly insulation materials. Inorganic and completely inert, over 70% of the raw material used in production are recycled. This process does not include the use of CFC's, HCFC's or other environmentally damaging gases.

Work on soundproofing a ceiling can now be carried out by a single person as the roll is simple to work with making for a quick, easy, home improvement product. The Acoustic Membrane easily folds and bends round corners and edges to protect against flanking sound. Not only is this soundproofing membrane versatile it boasts a very high Performance noise reduction of (22dB Rw) for minimal thickness and is well in excess of Part E of the Building Sound Regulations when used in conjunction with other materials. The Acoustic Membrane Complies with BSEN ISO 140.

Each ceiling is subject to fire regulations and where applicable the ceiling construction needs to be fire rated. However, once a hole has been made in the ceiling for a down lighter, the integrity of the construction and its ability to perform in a fire can be reduced significantly. To combat this we have introduced an Acoustic Fire Hood to maximum protection for holes created by the introduction of a down lighter and to allow for maximum ease of fitting. In a fire situation the Acoustic Fire Hood cover expands internally to fill all the available space with a highly insulating fire resistant char. Thus, the fire is unable to penetrate the hole and the cover is able to give additional insulation protection to the ceiling void to reduce the chance of heat build up and ignition of flammable materials such as accumulated dust and insulation. These Acoustic Fire Hoods are available in many sizes to suit the cut out space.

When you walk on these surfaces a large amount of impact as well as airborne noise is created (due to the hard surface) this can often be a nuisance to the people living below. The Acoustic Laminate Underlay is made up of a 4.2mm layer of high density resilient rubber sponge with a foil faced moisture barrier laminated to one side. It can be easily cut with a knife or scissors and if used in conjunction with our soundproofing mats it will provide both impact AND airborne noise reduction through the floor with minimal height rise. Acoustic Performance Weighted Impact Sound Improvement Index (Delta Lw) 27dB!! This is a substantial improvement in impact noise transfer over not having an acoustic underlay and if soundproofing mats are used in conjunction in addition, this figure will be even higher. Sone wood/laminate flooring test Drum sound emission (Overall loudness) Typical 2.5mm PE Foam=77 Sone - this product tested at only 53 Sone!! (Sone is a Drum Sound test and SONE is a measurement of perceived loudness, scaled for human auditory sensitivities. The result of this test is simply shown as a SONE rating.)

In 1986 they formed a strong partnership and sole UK distribution deal with Isolgomma Insulation based in Italy. This range of products is very popular and many meet the new Part E building requirements. These products are also referred to, in the UK, as Acousticel. Their two most popular products are, Acousticel R-10 A recycled rubber sound proofing for floors engineered to reduce impact noise through a timber separated floor and specifically designed to help bring a timber suspended floor into Part E compliance for separating floors between new flats. Independently tested, this acoustic insulation is the popular choice for all flat conversions and complies with the latest Building Regulation requirements. This unique resilient mat is also ideal for soundproofing a floor in existing flats, homes and a wide variety of other domestic uses and should be used to create an independent floating floor to reduce impact and airborne noise nuisance. Acousticel M-20 Wall Soundproofing M20AD is designed to absorb and reduce the amount of airborne noise which penetrates poorly insulated party walls. Easy to fit, this 20mm thick insulation is simply glued to the existing wall with two layers of 12.5mm plasterboard bonded on top and is an easy solution if you are disturbed by noise from your neighbours. It is ideal for insulating walls separating stairs and hallways where space is at a premium. Particularly useful for meeting Part E building regulations for airborne noise control through a wall. A soundproofed wall using M-20 has a sound insulation value of 48dB DnT,W+Ctr which is approx. an 87% reduction in sound transmission and complies with the requirements of the latest Approved Document E Building Regulations. It is therefore, ideal for insulating walls separating stairs and hallways where space is at a premium.
