Choosing Wall Soundproofing

When it comes to soundproofing walls the choices fall into two broad categories: solutions that are stick-on and therefore slim-line; and those that involve creating a deeper stud structure, but offer better soundproofing.

Wanting to control the amount of echo or background noise within the room? Then take a look at our range of acoustic panels.

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, and can very much be a DIY job, only involving 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.
