The problem

Are you a home or business owner who needs ceiling soundproofing? Do you want to live or work in an environment that is free from the sound of footsteps above you – the sound of neighbours dropping the remote in the apartment above, or the sound of a baby crying..? If so, we may be your knights in shining armour.

Sources of Noise that Ceiling Soundproofing can remedy

At City Insulation we have a range of soundproofing solutions that guarantee a more peaceful life…

Below is a list of common airborne and impact noises that we can remedy with ceiling soundproofing (along with walls if required):

  • People walking on floors with hard soled shoes (impact)
  • Baby’s crying (airborne)
  • Music (impact & airborne)
  • TV’s / surround sound blaring out (impact & airborne)
  • General conversation (airborne)
  • Chairs scraping (impact)
  • Feet tapping (impact)

As the world becomes a busier place, so too is the amount of noise we have in our lives.

Sprayfoam ceiling soundproofing

We offer another exceptional soundproofing solution that comes in the form of Polyurethane sprayfoam ceiling insulation. This is a product that works very well at reducing airborne and impact noise and can be incorporated in many of the above systems.

We only use Icynene sprayfoam, which is a non-toxic open cell sprayfoam that sticks to walls and expands creating a flexible and airtight seal against the wall. The sound wave dampening qualies of this sprayfoam are second to none. Beware of imitations that will leave your property smelling of disgusting chemicals and having little performance on airborne and impact noise reduction.

Ceiling soundproofing systems

Ceiling Soundproofing Systems

Thankfully, there are a number of different systems that City Insulation can offer on a fixed price per metre to remedy such scenarios. We work on both domestic and commercial properties in and around the UK to give those that occupy them more peace in their lives. Depending on how precious you are about losing space and the amount of noise reduction you require, we have a system to meet your every need:

Effective for reducing airborne and impact noise with little loss of ceiling height. The old ceiling is removed and resilient bars are attached to the ceiling joists to dissipate the sound waves coming down from above. 100mm of acoustic rockwool is placed between the ceiling joists and then two layers of acoustic plasterboard are added to finish off, sealing the first layer with acoustic mastic.

Ceiling height loss = ~31 – 38mm

Airborne sound reduction (SRI) = ~ 15-17db

Impact sound reduction (SRI) = ~ 18-20db.

Very effective for reducing airborne and impact noise with a small amount of ceiling height loss. It is also one of the cleanest systems as it leaves the existing ceiling intact, which acts as the first buffer layer for the noise. Hangers are fixed to the existing ceiling joists and through these timber batons are placed to form the basis of the suspended ceiling. 50-100mm (depending on height loss restrictions) Acoustic rockwool is placed in between the batons. Resilient bars are then attached to the batons and two layers of acoustic plasterboard are added to finish off, sealing the first layer with acoustic mastic.

Celing height loss = ~100 – 150mm

Airborne sound reduction (SRI) = ~ 17-19db

Impact sound reduction (SRI) = ~ 21-23db.

Extremely effective in treating impact noise but will reduce the ceiling height by approximately 150mm. No mess as the existing ceiling remains. A gap is left between the old ceiling and new timber frame is installed with batons. 100mm acoustic rockwool is placed between the batons. Resilient bars are fixed to the batons and then two layers of acoustic plasterboard are added to finish off, sealing the first layer with acoustic mastic.

Ceiling height loss = 165 – 175mm

Airborne sound reduction (SRI) = ~ 13-15db

Impact sound reduction (SRI) = ~ 25-27db

Extremely effective for both impact and airborne noise pollution with as little as 100mm of ceiling lost. The original ceiling is removed and 100mm of acoustic rockwool is placed between the original floor joists that are exposed. A full timber substrate is hung from the floor joists using iso hangers in which batons are placed forming the basis of the hung ceiling. 50mm acoustic rockwool is placed in between these batons for a further layer of soundproofing insulation. Resilient bars are added to the underside of the batons to attach two layers of acoustic plasterboard to finish off, sealing the first layer with acoustic mastic.

Celing height loss = 100mm

Airborne sound reduction (SRI) = ~ 30-32db

Impact sound reduction (SRI) = ~ 29-31db.

Extremely effective for both impact and airborne noise reduction with approximately 165mm of ceiling height lost, this is our most effective solution at reducing airborne and impact noise coming through a ceiling. 100mm of acoustic rockwool is inserted in between existing ceiling joists to sop the speaker box effect created by the void between the floorboards and the old ceiling. A completely independent timber frame is then put in place with a gap between the floor joists and the new framework. 100mm rockwool is inserted in between the batons on the timber substrate, resilient bars fixed to the batons and then two layers of acoustic plasterboard to finish off, sealing the first layer with acoustic mastic.

Floor height gain = 100mm

Airborne sound reduction (SRI) = ~ 31-32db

Impact sound reduction (SRI) = ~ 30-31db.
