Soundproofing floors - let the neighbors live separate lives !

Soundproof Materials

There are several materials with which is created between the floors soundproofing:

  • foamed polystyrene boards.The main advantages of this material is its low cost and self-extinguishing in fire (if you add special additives).In addition, it is water-resistant, environmentally friendly and does not deform over time.
  • Glass wool and rock wool.The advantage of wool - high sound absorption and fire resistance.Using wool must do waterproofing layer as it absorbs moisture.The disadvantage is that over time, it is crushed, leading to deterioration of insulation.
  • crosslinked penopropilena.It has excellent performance to reduce impact noise.Furthermore, it is also environmentally friendly and has a low weight.
  • cross-linked polyethylene foam.It is the most preferred material for soundproofing.It does not require a waterproofing layer.It is also lightweight, flexible and environmentally friendly.
  • crosslinked gas-filled foam.Not withstand heavy loads for a long time.The air exits from the cells gradually, and it is blown off turns into a conventional film in which no sound insulating properties.Therefore, it can not be used in the floor screed.

choose the way of sound insulation slabs

Soundproofing floor decks in two ways - the implementation of a false ceiling or a floating floor.Floating floor - a screed of cement-sand mixture, concrete, plaster or other materials.It is placed on a layer of soundproofing material, but it must be elastic.Screed generally has a thickness of 50-80 millimeter and soundproof layer - from 3 to 50 mm.In addition, the screed should not be in contact with the wall, so you need to build resilient gaskets, as a limiter.

Suspended ceiling made of plasterboard.A layer of soundproofing material is mounted between the ceiling and plasterboard, which is mounted on a metal frame.

Soundproofing floor decks is carried out it is not very difficult, even with their own hands.For soundproofing floor needed: sound-insulating material (eg, cotton), lighthouses, screed.Starting to do screed, keep in mind that it should be floating.It has this name, because it will be on the sound insulating layer and not touch the walls.

How is soundproofing floors in the home?

So, you must first remove the floor.If they were made of wood, then remove all of the board, and if the concrete, remove the linoleum.Gender clean from dirt, dust and other debris.The pits, holes and bumps seal the special repair mortar.Now you need to put on the edges of anti-vibration pads, but their height should be slightly above the screed.Then they fixed liquid nails.

then exposed lighthouses, but you must advance to make the necessary measurements of the level.Expose them as accurately as possible, because that is what they will be laid material. threaded wool is necessary so that lighthouses pierce through it.

Next candy hidden under the main floor covering.It may be, for example, parquet, plank when stacked directly on cotton.If you want to lay chipboard, it needs to make the guide.And if you are going to make a concrete floor, you need a coupler.To do this, dissolve the cement-sand mixture with water at a ratio of 1 to 3. The solution is supposed to be almost dry.

first made two-centimetric layer on top of wool.Then put the grid, and then filled with a solution of 2 cm. Now it must be leveled on the perimeter, focusing on lighthouses.Then they are removed, and the mixture is dry.After drying, the floor should overwrite.That's all insulation slabs ready.It remains only to lay linoleum.
