Sound-proofing an office or studio space – how we do it


sound-proofing using acoustic floors, doors & ceiling panels.

Sound-proofing with acoustic floors and ceilings are constructed using standard stud/ track or wood with resilient crossbars and acoustic plasterboard panels.


The important bit is that we also ensure that metal on metal is separated using rubber gaskets/strips. It is also constructed to make a ‘box’ within a ‘box.

The doors are usually 50mm solid 1-hour fire doors with a double glazed vision panel (6mm toughened glass with a 10mm air gap).

On larger windows we also angle the glass against each other to ensure that the noise waves are re-directed.
In addition, all our acoustic doors have acoustic seals fitted to all edges including the base.

Door frames are split vertically and joined with acoustic foam.
