The soundproof carpet base can reduce air noise, such as when talking, listening to music or watching a television. This is achieved through the use of high-mass materials that are effective at reflecting sound. Therefore, the reflected sound cannot travel through the material to the next room. That's why it's good to know that the right base coat can reduce noise in your home and soften the sound of your steps.
Basically, there are two types of sound insulation, the most common is Transit Sound, which reduces the noise of steps when entering the room below. Less common is the drum sound, which actually calms your steps in the room you're in. ImpactoMat 5 is a cost-effective, ultra-thin system that helps reduce unwanted impact noise on concrete floors. It is commonly used in multi-level concrete buildings, such as offices, apartments, hotels, and commercial premises.
ImpactoMat is incredibly easy to install by simply attaching to the concrete subfloor. The bottom layer will reduce airborne noises, but it won't stop them. To completely stop airborne noise, you need a solid material. But that solid material would make the carpet uncomfortably hard.
The Noisestop Acoustic Underlay acoustic layer is a solution for overlapping floors that reduces airborne noise and impact noise through wood and concrete floors. A versatile product that is suitable for use in domestic and commercial situations. Easy to install and compatible with a wide range of floor finishes. The Noisestop lower layers guarantee excellent performance against common household noises, such as the noise of conversations and television, due to the large mass.
The 9 mm polyethylene foam layer absorbs impact sounds, such as footsteps, general movement or falling objects. It is recommended to use each of the following acoustic mats, as they have a minimum thickness of 8 mm and reduce noise by a minimum of 40 decibels (dB). In the case of carpets, you need a product that is soft but doesn't hit rock bottom, as is the case with most acoustic base coats on the market. This combination of acoustic bases allows you to achieve much better results with the finest soundproofing products.
If you're looking for ways to reduce noise in your home or office space, acoustic underlay may be just what you need. Acoustic underlay is designed to absorb sound waves and prevent them from traveling through walls or floors. It's an effective way to reduce noise from conversations, music, television and other sources. The Noisestop Acoustic Underlay is an excellent choice for reducing both airborne and impact sounds with a reduction of 48 dB for sounds suspended in the air and 46 dB for impact sounds.
It's easy to install and compatible with a wide range of floor finishes. Floorscan Acoustics is one of the largest independent insulation providers offering acoustic solutions for residential and commercial projects. There is no doubt that companies that sell carpet coverings with soundproofing properties indicate a figure in dB. However, this figure only shows how much noise emitted by the air is blocked on a concrete floor, of which the carpet covering represents only 5%.
This, together with the MuteMat range, offers the combination of highest-performing acoustic bases and, at the same time, keeps the accumulation as thin as possible. The science behind acoustic foundations can be complicated, but the main factors for reducing sound come down to three components: mass, damping and decoupling. The MuteMat 3 is one of the best acoustic coatings available on the market today that helps reduce both impact and airborne sound while complying with construction regulations of part E without needing any other material. All of these acoustic layers and mats mentioned above can easily place a carpet directly on them for maximum soundproofing benefits.
In conclusion, acoustic underlay can be an effective way to reduce noise in your home or office space by absorbing sound waves and preventing them from traveling through walls or floors. It's easy to install and compatible with a wide range of floor finishes while providing excellent performance against common household noises such as conversations and television due to its large mass absorption capabilities.
