So, you want to soundproof a wall? When researching information on how soundproof a wall you are likely confronted by a confusing array of acoustic materials and soundproof panels with wildly varying performance statistics. Below we try to make the process very simple. If you would prefer you can start with our beginners wall soundproofing guide. Otherwise the process below will hopefully guide you through in a logical way, a process of soundproofing a room from unwanted external noise.

Wall Soundproofing

When it comes to soundproofing walls the choices fall into two broad categories. Solutions that are stick on and therefore slim line solutions and those that involve creating a stud structure. In performance terms the latter provide greater protection in general but at the loss of more room space.

You can either jump straight into the wall soundproofing solutions by looking at "Our Solutions" on the right hand side of this page, or we can help you choose which type is most suitable for you by following the steps below.
What's best for you?
Step
1
Decide Type
Start Here
Decide how much room space you can afford to lose. The stick on solutions are around 50mm (2 inches) thick. In general they are a little easier to install, very much a DIY job as they involve cutting and gluing skills.

The independent walls involve the erection of a stud structure which can be done in wood or metal, while being more labour intensive and more space consuming they do offer better acoustic protection.
