Sound Insulation for Walls

Insulating partition wall between homes
In order to acoustically separate two rooms, homes for instance, the partition wall must always be insulated. The correct way of insulation is to place a construction that functions as a barrier between the sound source and the receiver, i.e. the side that experiences the nuisance. Such a construction can consist of a floating wall or a floating ceiling. This construction reduces the radiation of sound, which in turn reduces the nuisance resulting from airborne noise.

By using the Akoestikon Acoustic Studs you can create a decoupled wall or ceiling in the room where you experience the nuisance. A product video, manual and explanation can be found on the  productpage.

Insulating system wall or plaster wall
Light partition walls that devides rooms or houses, made of plasterboard for example, are best insulated by doubling their mass (weight). You can carry out the insulation process by using Isomat KE14. Equip the side of the Isomat Isomat KE that contains jute with Stauf glue and mount it to the wall, avoiding entrapment of air bubbles. Screw or nail the Isomat plate onto the wall at the corners. Finish the Isomat with plasterboard or plywood. This way of insulating is very effective with this type of wall and is relatively inexpensive and easy to carry out. (This is the same insulation method used for wooden subfloors). Repeat this principle on both sides of the wall to achieve an optimal result. Make sure that the wall is properly connected to the architectural ceiling, especially in rooms with a drop system ceiling.

Flanking sound and end result
At first glance, most of the nuisance seems to come through the partition wall, but noise can also enter through other construction parts such as walls, ceiling or floor, which are connected to the partition wall. This flanking sound largely determines the end result of the insulation materials used. It is therefore possible that you have to provide several wall or ceiling parts with Akoestikon Acousic Studs system.
