soundproofing projects Do I need to soundproof my chimney breast?
We are of the opinion that soundproofing the alcoves either side is usually sufficient. Chimneys are typically constructed to be fire and smoke proof and are of double brick construction, whereas the walls either side, may be poorly constructed and of single brick. There are exceptions, but in the majority of cases you can reduce your labour and time considerably by just doing the alcoves.

What about skirting and powerpoints?
To deliver a good acoustic seal these will need moving forward to the top surface of the product you select. There's more information in our installation guide downloads. You'll find links to our installation guides provided in each product information panel when you use the solution search above.
sound insulation answers How do clients decide on the right product?
Which solution our clients end up selecting tends to be determined by balancing out the factors of price, how extreme the initial problem is, how easy an installation they prefer and what loss of room space they can accomodate. Our solution search (above) will give you a full comparison of all of the products that we stock.

What is your best selling product?
Our best seller is the Sound Stop panel option. Perhaps the most common mistake as soon as the statistics are laid out is to forget that the decibel scale is not linear. On a typical installation, the Sound Stop panel options will cut down neighbour noise to 3 times quieter and boost the homeowner's SRI to on or around the comfortable -50db mark. The effectiveness and simplicity of installation for this option are the deciding factors that make it our clients' preffered product.
