What is soundproofing?

Soundproofing is the process of making a house, space, room or an enclosed space resistant to the passage of sound waves. The purpose of soundproofing is to block external noises from entering and keeping internal noises from escaping to the outside. There are many types of soundproofing methods but mainly 4 primary types that would cover most of an area include:

1) Absorption: Adding Class A absorption materials such as fibreglass, foam and denim that absorb sound waves and eventually reduce noise

2) Damping: Removing vibrational energy from a structure before it builds up and emits sound waves.

3) Decoupling: Blocking sound transmission between two structures in direct contact with each other by creating separation between the structures.

4) Filling gaps: Filling up air gaps in a structure so sound waves cannot easily pass through.

Beyond Sound works with many types of soundproofing methods and installations which are listed below:

Home Soundproofing

Homes need a lot of noise reduction and soundproofing so that homeowners can live peacefully in some peace given the fast pace of life these days. Barring the hustle and bustle of fast-paced city life relaxing in the suburbs with soundproofing homes would be a dream for every person who works for hours. Providing a noise-free environment and installing soundproofing and sound absorption materials at home is essential to having a peaceful and harmonious house. Soundproofing techniques at homes include:

•  Installing wooden panels and pillars on walls, ceilings and floors of a home

•  Mounting custom-made acoustic panels on walls and ceilings also, helps in reducing noise by controlling and absorbing echo, vibration and resonance of sound

•  Wall padding is another soundproofing technique that helps in not spreading and reflecting home sounds to neighbours or adjacent surrounding areas from TV, audio systems, phones or any other electronic devices.

•  Doors, windows, vents and balconies can be sealed and closed gaps under these structures so that sound does not enter from outside. Door and window sweeps, and automatic draught excluders are used to fill the gaps.

•  Baffles are mostly mounted from ceilings at homes and hospitality venues such as hotels and restaurants for noise reduction and more as an interior design.

•  Movies, documentaries and talk shows can be watched in the comfort of homes with the installation of soundproof audio systems at home theatres. Home theatres can be created and designed with sound absorption and soundproofing methods so neighbours won’t be disturbed or any sound distortion from outside could affect the home theatre.

•  Denim insulation is another option that is mostly used for attics, walls, ceilings and floors. Denim insulation is also considered Class A soundproof material along with fiberglass and mineral wool. It is known to be 30% more effective in reducing noise compared to other insulators and insulation materials.

•  A soundproofing mat placed on floors proves quite effective at decoupling stud work by blocking excess airborne sound. It can help muffle sounds such as music, footsteps and voices which could bother people in a building who live in flats

•  Damping is used for any spaces that vibrate and cause noise, mostly metal surfaces such as roof outlines and pipelines in a house or a building with several flats. Metal surfaces and outlines usually vibrate with environmental changes such as heat and rain which causes noise and eventually converts to heat. Damping is also pretty common for cladding panels and studio walls.

Soundproofing at Offices/Workspace/Businesses: To increase work productivity and efficiency at work and offices, working in a quiet, peaceful space and surrounding area is essential. Noise reduction is of utmost importance in such spaces for high efficiency and productive end results. Noise at a workplace can cause disturbance to one’s ear, and stress and anxiety increase which affects work detrimentally. Communication such as work calls, and calls with clients can also be affected negatively because of noise. The key to every successful business and office space is communication. This is why Beyond Sound is there to facilitate soundproofing to workspaces and business owners. Soundproofing methods in offices include sound absorption through acoustic panels and soundproof materials that could reduce noise and reflect the noise to an end zone including ceilings, walls and floors.

Many businesses require warehouses and many business owners own more than 1 warehouse in several locations. Warehouses have a lot of noise issues. The hard surfaces such as floors and walls create echo and pile on top of each other into a mass sonic wave, which makes reducing sound a crucial step in warehouses and businesses. Installing acoustic panels and baffles, mostly made of foam panels on floors and walls will be cost-effective. Since they are lightweight, a lot of panels will not required on a large scale, a few will do the work of covering the whole area of a warehouse. Thus, soundproofing can create an amicable environment for employees, workers and agents by providing noise-free communication and work will be productive.

Another step in soundproofing at businesses, warehouses and industries/offices would be to incorporate acoustical doors and windows and provide seals on door and window seals. Making sure to provide sound absorption materials to the exterior surfaces plays a huge role in not releasing sound to neighbouring surroundings and the environment.

Hospitality Industry and Venues

There are many different types of sound insulation products that Beyond Sound provides for hospitality industries. These materials include MLV (Mass Loaded Vinyl), denim, and acoustic panels. MLV is used in studs, joints and edges of pillars which are required in abundance in hospitality venues like hotels, restaurants, bars, resorts and more. Many art and recreation places such as museums, indoor gyms, tennis courts, spas and swimming pools use an immense amount of baffles for structural design and sound absorption.

Recording, Music And Television Studios

Soundproofing is a must in music and television studios. Providing acoustic panels in studios is required for free-flowing and soundproof recording whether it is to record flawless singing, music, acting, dramatization, voiceovers and hosting. At times, most studios work outdoors and professionally, some many hosts and podcasters record at home and broadcast from home, so soundproofing their homes is also a service Beyond Sound provides.
