Best Way to Soundproof a Ceiling Cavity

The video below shows you the best way to soundproof airborne noise transmission in a suspended ceiling cavity between two (office) rooms.

Why Loaded Vinyl is Not the Best Way

  • Loaded vinyl or any sound barriers must be perfectly sealed to work but the cavity ceiling is usually full of pipes, wires and ducts making the work too difficult to seal allowing too much noise going through the gaps, most of the time it is a waste of money.

Why Sound Absorbers Are The Best Option

  • Easy to install between wires, pipes and ducts.
  • Doesn't need to be perfectly sealed, sound get absorbed while traveling through gaps.
  • Ideal product to be used as acoustic ducts, because it allows airflow to go freely through but absorbs the sound on it's way.

Which Absorber To Use

  • I recommend high density polyester batts because it is not itchy and does not attract mould or bugs.It is allergy free
  • It is recyclable
  • It will last the life time of the building
  • It can be re-used 

Any Questions?
