MuteBarrier™ 5kg system is ideal for floor soundproofing projects that require a very slim profile, one that does not compromise limited floor height, but yet still provides the reduction of airborne noise that is ideal for background noise issues in all homes and workplaces. Our MuteBarrier™ 5kg is heavy, and this 'heaviness' translates to having strong acoustic qualities for airborne noise. This system provides noise control for both home and workplace There is also Acoustic Mineral Wool to fit between the joists, at no less than 45kg per m3, and use of Isolation Strips to provide a floating floor function. It is all these materials combined that make it ideal for those looking to achieve the best floor soundproofing possible, to reduce muffled conversation and the light use of electrical items, microwaves or televisions, nothing with substantial low-frequencies. Although these are noise issues commonly associated with what you find at home, especially in dense-living, multiple dwellings, these disturbances are similar to those you hear in the workplace. 



  • Incredibly slimline soundproofing system for reducing airborne noise
  • System thickness from structural boards 2mm 
  • Up to 44dB for airborne (where a higher number is desired)
  • Straightforward to install, often loose laid and requires no adhesive



Combining essential soundproofing materials.


  • MuteBarrier™ 5kg - a layer of 5kg per m2 Mass Loaded Vinyl (a high mass for reducing airborne sound)
  • Acoustic Mineral Wool 45kg or 60kg per m3 - (essential for reducing resonance between joists, and to minimise sound 'flanking' into other rooms)
  • Isolation Strip P8 - is a deviated, rubbed crumber material to separate from joists (to achieve the best performance against impact and low-frequency noise)

How to Install

  • Acoustic Mineral Wool fitted between joists in which it's depth dictates thickness needed, you will want to leave at least a 10mm air gap - DO NOT COMPRESS
  • Isolation Strips self-adhered to top of joists, make sure these are as dust free as possible
  • Perimeter detail installed, dependent on your floor finish above this would be Perimeter Flanking Band for hard finishes
  • Subfloor installed, preferably a tongue and groove flooring as this would provide an airtight seal
  • MuteBarrier™ 5kg installed, taping together joins



Alternatively, we provide Acoustic Installation across the UK to fit all of our systems - they come with a wealth of experience in the field so you can feel comfortable that the right installation methods are being carried out.

All of our systems contain a high level of mass. If there are any structural concerns, you will want to consult a Structural Engineer to discuss your requirements.

*Our Typical Performance Results and Noise Reduction Guidance are provided to indicate the results that have been achieved in previous tests but are not guaranteed to a specific site as multiple factors can affect this.

*Our guide price includes all acoustic materials and ancillaries required

We endeavour to display the most up to date testing and to manage expectation as best as possible. Please do contact us to discuss your requirements.
