SOUNDPROOFING WALLS

Earlier houses and flats may have been created with party walls that have little or no sound insulation so normal noise levels can be clearly heard from the other side. Neighbours do not have to be noisy to be a problem and it this type of noise that the new noise regulations seek to address. So normal levels of radio noise and speech should not be heard and hopefully, the following solutions will help you to soundproof your Party wall. Each solution has been combined to help with different levels of noise coming through the Party walls. Your solution will depend on your volume being heard and also how much wall space can be used for the Party wall soundproofing.

Things you should know when considering to soundproof your wall:

  • When soundproofing the party wall, you may in some cases need to soundproof the chimney breast as well.
  • Flanking noise may sometimes play a role with the noise through the party wall – noise coming in via another area.

*Results may vary due to flanking noise and/or structural noise
