Earlier properties may have been created with Party Walls that have little or no sound insulation at all so normal noise levels can be clearly heard from either side through the Walls.
Neighbours do not have to be noisy for there to be a problem . In most cases the issue is with the single brick construction of the Party Wall and also the age of the property itself.
Over the years we have designed a number of new Wall Soundproofing Solutions to combat most airborne noise transmission.
When considering Soundproofing a Party wall you will need to consider the following:
- How much wall space can you afford to lose
- What volumes of noise is been transmitted through the walls
- If you have a Party wall with a chimney breast, is the chimney breast wall also a issue ( Most cases it is)
- Is ” Flanking Noise” also present
If you need any help in determining what solution would be best for your property. Please don’t hesitate to contact us and let our team design the perfect solution for you.
