Hi, anyone recommend suitable sound insulation to go in Ist floor
6inch joist void - kitchen below, w/proof plasterboard onto bottom of
joists and w/resist chipfloorboarding on top. Bathroom above so
looking for something w/proof and 2inchs thick, also I heard there is
a product to lay between joist top and floorboard which cuts down
mechanical noise transfer. Any info would be great.
We have a floor that the building regulations required to be
soundproofed. It involved special chipboard flooring with a thin layer
of sponge on the underneath to reduce echoes, a strip of some sort of
bubble wrap roung the edges going up behind the skirting, a special
type of acoustic rockwool between the rafters and two layers of
acoustic plasterboard on the ceiling below. It works very well, you
can't hear the TV in the room below.
