Increasing demands on urban living means that residential properties are increasingly located in the same property as other commercial types such as gyms, retail and even bars and clubs – this is where acoustic independent ceilings are more effective. There are often stringent regulations in place for these multi-purpose builds which we can help investigate for you.
It is important early on in the design process to make sure independent ceilings are factored in as this minimises failure in acoustic performance at the testing phase, the potential of flanking transmission through neglecting specific areas of focus as well as potential costly remedial works if the incorrect product or system is installed, all of which are important for passing Part E Building Regulations. All materials are suited for installation as a retrofit to improve already existing properties.
We have a range of high performing and reliable soundproofing materials to help drastically improve airborne and impact reduction, especially where low frequency and excessive noise issues are concerned. Our MuteRange contains variations of our MuteClip™ that can be used to soundproof a wide range of ceilings, from homes to studio builds by decoupling from the structure, this would also achieve a high reduction for impact and vibration reduction. Our MuteClip LP™ is a low profile upgrade to help reduce headheight loss of the introduction of a new independent ceiling without compromising performance, and our MuteClip XP™ is our extended profile variant that accommodates differing ceiling or joist heights without any need for major construction work.

Our Akustik Range (coming soon, please do call us on 01937 588 226 for more information) is used when a specific natural low frequency is required, we have an abundance of data to help you with these requirements.
