To reduce sound transmission through walls, the best solution would be facing skeleton, coated gypsum boards.Furthermore, the plate is placed under the absorbent material.Do not skimp and do not buy a heater instead.So buy one of such materials as mineralovolokonnye boards, cellulose or basalt wool mats of coconut fiber, cork agglomerates, foamed glass.They perfectly reflect the sound, only the thickness of the whole structure should be at least 40-50 mm.It is not a pity, but will lose centimeters of living space.
If no such desire, use acoustic plaster - an interesting new solution.First, the wall is applied to the base layer
thickness of 8-20 mm, which will not only drown out the sound, and lined the walls, and then 2-3 mm topcoat that decorate the room.
To hear the neighbors below, make a "floating floor.To do this, lay a screed special insulator impact noise and then follow the screed.As an insulator used agglomerate cork, coconut fiber mats, sheets penopropilena, glass fiber mats or fiberglass.
to the ceiling, use the technology of acoustic ceiling, which employ a slab of fiberglass or mineral fiber sound absorption is 70-95%.You can make a suspended ceiling of microperforated vinyl.
order not to hear the noise of the street, set the window frames, which should be double-glazed windows with thick glasses and a large distance between them.Slopes must be separated, you can opt for this wall panel.
As strange as it sounds, but the sound can come even from electrical outlets.If you put your ear to the wall outlet, you can hear the neighbors, then remove it in the hole insert mineral wool or asbestos cloth and seal the whole solution, and only then install the outlet.
Tip 2: How to insulate an apartment
virtually all the old apartment panel houses there is a problem of sound insulation.It is understandable, because the Soviet architects and designers living wonder about the level of noise.Their main task was to provide housing for citizens.Soundproofed apartment you can do it yourself.
First you need to pay special attention to the joints between walls and floor slab.This problem can be attributed to the subject of substandard work builders.Some time later, at the junction of the overlap floor to the walls certainly are formed deep cracks.It is through them can take a lot of noise from neighboring apartments.To solve this problem, you must do the dismantling of all the baseboards.After that, the floor along the walls is necessary to cut down the seam width of about 3-5 cm and depth to the base screed, and then close it to fill with cement mortar.Once the cement is dry, it is necessary to handle joint silicone sealant.In the end, skirting installed in its place.
If all the work is carried out efficiently, the problems with soundproofing in this place is no longer there.If you can not gouge joint in the screed, it is necessary to try to fill out as carefully as possible hermetic seal between the edge of the parquet flooring and the wall.
Most noise comes into the room through the window.The solution is standard - you just need to replace old wooden windows with modern metal-plastic.However, if you do not want to replace or opportunities that old box you just need to upgrade.In most cases, the effect of such modernization superior effect after replacing windows.
First you need to replace the glass on thicker.Before installing the new glass, you need to flap around the perimeter fluff transparent silicone sealant.The edges of the glass during the installation should be tightly pressed into the silicone.After that, with the help of glazing beads can be attached to the glass.On the contour of the porch, you can stick an ordinary rubber seal.Be sure to take care of finishing slopes.For this purpose, it is not recommended to use a gypsum board that can resonate.It will significantly reduce the sound insulation window.
