Can anyone recommend what I can put down on the floor between two flats in
order to reduce sound levels? At the moment sound carries between the two
flats and I believe there's some sort of 'sound' board I can put down. I'm
also thinking of putting a laminate floor down in some rooms and I'm worried
that this will make the carrying of sound problem worse.
The Hampton Court fire revealed that Sir Christopher Wren had used
crushed shells for this purpose 300+ years ago. I stand to be corrected
but would guess that shells have a fairly porous surface which probably
does a much better job of soaking up sound than mineral wool does.
