Techniques we employ
This material, commonly called Studio Foam, has a distinctive wedge or pyramid shape that is highly effective at absorbing sound. They attach to walls as panels, hang from ceilings as baffles, or sit in corners as bass traps.
Sound insulation are batts made of mineral wool, rock wool, and fiberglass, designed to fit in between the studs of walls. The batts fit snugly between studs to take up airspace that can transmit sound.
These are decorative versions of sound insulation and sound absorbing foam. They can come in many appealing colors, patterns, and fabrics to serve a dual purpose in the home and workplace.
Acoustical fabrics are thicker and heavier than other fabrics and used in theater curtains, blackout curtains, and studio blankets.
Materials like Mass Loaded Vinyl (MLV) is a dense rubber like material, used in many different situations such as car soundproofing, machinery, appliances, and as an underlayment. The mass of the material acts as a sound barrier.
Soundproofing a hardwood or tile floor requires the decoupling of the flooring surface and the subfloor to reduce the noise transmission. Cork, felt, and polymers are commonly used as underlayment materials.
This group includes anything used in the structure of a building, such as soundproof windows, soundproof walls, doors, and decoupling products used to install them.
Acoustic insulation throughout the spectrum of modern society.
Noise pollution isn't exclusive to city residence. The competing sounds of more people in a smaller space, noise pollution can also be found in suburban neighbourhoods. Individual homes and offices operate at levels that can have a negative impact on your health and productivity.
The combination of modern design and busy lifestyles create potent mix of bustling environments. Open plan living, tall ceilings, lots of glass and hard floors cause sound to echo and do little to prevent noise transfer -both from outside sources but in particular between the rooms in the house itself.
The issue of noise pollution has become a growing concern as our cities develop, national studies have found that city dwellers are more prone to experience stress, anxiety, sleep deprivation all as a result of the lack of quiet environments.
Ascot London’s applied to acoustic ecology studies have found the importance of applying our focussed attention to specific acoustic concerns while staying connected to all knowledge about the acoustic environment.
