In accordance with the laws of physics, the noise of the hardest extinguished when passing through the multi-layer structure.However, the arrangement of the multi-layer sound-absorbing structure inevitably leads to a reduction in floor space.

The thicker the layer will be soundproof, is the quieter the room.But too carried away

too, do not need to - try to find a middle ground.

Basic information about the soundproofing wall

Basics soundproofing walls

There are several methods to improve the sound insulation performance of walls and partitions.You can do the following:

  • quality plaster surface;
  • mount multi-layer structure consisting of a frame, special sound-proof linings, noise insulation core material and gypsum boards;
  • ready to install panels for sound insulation.

Check out the features of each method and choose the appropriate option.

materials for soundproofing




significant amount of noise enters the room through the pores in the material production of the walls, cracks, chips and other defects.Your task - to get rid of all these drawbacks.

qualitatively plastered wall, you will immediately solve two important tasks: improve sound insulation and create the perfect base for arranging finishing.




most popular and one of the easiest methods of arrangement of additional sound insulation.Based on the use of special sound-proof materials together with finishing lining sheets of plasterboard.

Before attaching drywall is still strongly recommended to seal the material surface defects with the help of plaster.

Plasterboard is mounted on a special frame.In the framework of the cell fit into sound-proof material.

maturing sound waves most effectively manage materials and porous fibrous structure.Therefore, the cell frame is best filling materials such as mineral fiber boards or conventional.

They are sold in rolls.When mounting frame for fixing plasterboard always keep in mind the width of the roll, so that later you can effortlessly put sound-proof material in the base of the cell.

For maximum effect, create a design in a small air gap.For this to construct a frame made of slats or bars with a thickness slightly greater than the thickness of the sound-proofing material.

At the end of the construction is sheathed gypsum boards.For fixing screws are typically used.




also a number of effective and popular methods of improving sound insulation properties of buildings include the installation of special plates.In today's market presents a plurality of plates of brands and varieties.

Plates are made withusing compression methods at elevated temperatures.Different materials can be built on products.Most often it is stone wool and wood chips.

panel fixing special dowels are used.After the installation work the joints are subject to mandatory treatment of plaster.To ensure the most effective sound insulation panels must be attached not only to the walls, and the floor and ceiling.

Sound-absorbing materials


material has several advantages, among which deserve special attention the following points:

  • small weight that allows you to perform installation work alone;
  • ease of assembly and installation;
  • resistance to aggressive external influences;
  • during operation is formed dirt and dust;
  • ease of processing.

addition to protection from noise, such plates will further contribute to maintaining the heat in the room, which also applies to the number of their advantages.

The only disadvantage of the material is its relatively high cost, but it is justified.For comparison, a special plate has approximately twice higher sound insulating properties compared with the construction of plasterboard.

Guidelines for sound insulation walls

Guide soundproofing walls

The guide describes a method for soundproofing walls with the help of multilayer structures made of soundproofing material, gypsum boards and related accessories.This is the best option for the beginner with an average budget.

Soundproofing walls should be integrated, then the effects will be most noticeable.

Start by finding all sorts of holes and cracks in the walls.Zashpaklyuyte defects found.

take into account the fact that the sockets are also among the main sources of noise, especially in multi-panel houses.Therefore, before proceeding to the arrangement of sound insulation, you must properly prepare the socket.

Disconnect the power supply of an apartment or house.In addition, check the power outlet on the absence of voltage using a special tester.Making sure that there are no current, disassemble socket and remove it from the hole.

Check outlet

outlet Check

Fill the opening with mineral wool or foam rubber, seal the plaster or other suitable material is a mixture of fast setting, and then return back to the socket.With such a simple decoration sound insulating properties of the outlet will be significantly increased.

Organize sealing and sound insulation of heating pipes in the places of their connection with the walls.Do not ignore it, and the others mentioned additional activities.Even little things can significantly improve the sound insulation of walls, and the work is very easy: you only need to seal the joints between walls and heating pipes with an elastic sealant.

Use it elastic means - such material, in contrast to their counterparts stiff, normally carries temperature changes.

Then you can proceed to the main stage of the work.

first step

Collect crate of metal sheets.

Please use the guide profile.Pre-fix in place the profile wall mounting special noise insulation tape.The ribbon will be further improved sound insulation.

Attach the profile to the first floor, then to the ceiling and then to walls.In places pairing profiles fasten them with screws.

The same procedure prepare the rack profile.It must be installed in the previously fixed guide profile at 600 mm (standard value, otherwise refer to the size of the selected noise insulation material).

Fastening profiles to the wall

Fastening profiles to the wall

Check the evenness of the installation frame element level or plumb.Finally, fasten the rack profile with rails with self-tapping screws.Surface profiles okleyte sound insulating tape to prevent loss of noise insulation properties in areas of contact with the frame with sheets of drywall.

may prefer other soundproof materials in its sole discretion, if desired.

third step

Proceed to fixing plasterboard sheets.For fixing drywall using self-tapping screws or a length of 2.5 cm.

fourth step

Carefully seal the space joints putty sheets.The gaps between the surfaces of the room and sheets of skin filled with an elastic sealant.

This soundproofing walls is prepared.At the end you will handle the plasterboard lining primer and perform finishing the chosen material.

Successful work!
