Acoustic Infill for Walls and Joists

  1. Our SoundBlocker Quilt is designed as a superior alternative of soundproofing when used as the acoustic infill in lightweight partitioning and timber joisted ceilings and floors.  The usual mineral wool that is used will absorb the reverberant sound that resonates within the cavities of stud walls and joists and should be used as part of an overall upgrade of the soundproofing when applicable.  The mineral wool option will not be compromised is there are gaps and it is important not to use too high a density or fit it tightly.  A density of between 40 to 60kg/m3will give the best results and it should be fitted loosely within the cavity.   Best results will also be obtained if clad with a double thickness of high density acoustic plasterboard decoupled with resilient bars and a floating floor (if applicable).As an alternative we can now offer the more efficient SoundBlocker Quilt that incorporates an acoustic membrane sandwiched within the product.  The product is also produced with the more environmentally friendly sheep’s wool that is kinder to the skin when handling.  Unlike the mineral wool acoustic infill, the SoundBlocker Quilt has to be fixed tightly to the sides of the stud or joists to reduce sound leakage around the product.  Fixed in this way the quilt will act as a soundproofing material as well as a sound absorber so is up to four times more efficient at soundproofing a structure than normal mineral wool.  When SoundBlocker Quilt is used as part of an overall soundproofing upgrade of a stud wall or timber joists, superior results will always be achieved.  For more information on our soundproofing products, go to www.soundservice.co.uk or call us on 01993704981
