We are always looking for the best ways to describe to you the world of soundproofing through introducing guides that range from the basic principles of sound, how to best soundproof surfaces and what to look for, and how to understand acoustic test data, and this is only naming a few! We want to help you come to the right decision, so whether this is through the use of our guides or talking to a member of our team - we are here to help!
A combination of the following will always result in a much improved acoustic performance.
F Ball Trowels are used in conjunction with Styccobond Adhesives and our MuteMat® OSF range, and although adhesive does not provide any immediate soundproofing benefit, its role in the system is still important. When you install a wooden flooring for example or composite flooring, made up of many layers, moisture over time will begin to warp the flooring. When the flooring warps it lends itself to 'slapping' against the flooring, causing a form of impact noise that is difficult to reduce without replacing. Adhesive helps to reduce this warping and to keep all composite levels in-check and to satisfy Building Control requirements.

This product is part of the following systems:
Soundproofing products act as a barrier to decrease sound leaving or entering a room or workspace. Sound absorbers absorb the sound within a room and assist to reduce room reverberation etc. Absorbers do not prevent the sound leaving the space but will reduce it. If you are wanting to soundproof a room you would have to buy soundproofing products. It may also be worthwhile to think about some absorbers inside the room to help reduce the sound before it hits the soundproofing.
A sound barrier is a sound blocker and usually includes insulation with a high mass, which then reduces the amount of sound that can pass through it. A standard domestic door is a good example of a noise barrier when it is closed as it reduces the sound of external noise. Sound waves flow like water and air so it is impracticable to use a sound barrier such as a fence or screen to stop noise but they are effective when used to reduce noise immediately on the other side of them. From distances farther away the noise reduction will be less efficient.
