We live in a very dynamic world. We want to take advantage of all possible options for entertainment, living outdoors, and that’s why we are a noisy community. But at home we like to enjoy our privacy and our silence. We don’t want to be disturbed by outside noise. For this reason, we can differentiate between two types of noise that can be combated, airborne noise and impact noise. That is why we are making more and more houses with a good acoustic isolation.
Depending on our needs, we can insulate ceilings, walls or floors. Thus avoiding noise from outside or inside the building. We explain how to improve the acoustic insulation in the house according to the characteristics of each place. First of all, it should be noted that the permissible decibel level in homes in Spain is a matter that depends directly on each city council. This noise is converted into a vibration that is “transmitted” through the internal structure of the building. To combat noise pollution, we can use many different materials. Basically, the existing wall panel will be used, adding a acoustic isolation between the two sections. Below we will analyze the various acoustic insulation capacities of homes.
You must take into account the specifications of each material to assess which is the most suitable in each case; The materials commonly used in noise processing are: Polyurethane insulation panel that can be used in floors, walls and ceilings. This type of panel has a sound-absorbing variant, which is the traditional alternative used to isolate noisy buildings such as gyms, cinemas, etc. The same happens with fiberglass, which is used especially indicated for the acoustic isolation and thermal of corrugated sheet metal roofs. It is mainly used on walls, facades and ceilings, as long as its density is not too high. Rock wool is recommended for acoustic and thermal insulation. It can be used both on walls and ceilings, as long as its density allows it.
Polyurethane foam injection. It is used for thermal and acoustic insulation of exterior façade walls. The polyester sheet is used on surfaces such as facades, walls and floors.
As you can see, there are many options acoustic isolation at home that we can employ in our homes. If you find the slightest noise from your neighbors: music, pets, crying of small children… don’t wait any longer and live in peace. For this, we recommend a qualified renovation company to find the best acoustic insulation specialist to help you improve your daily life, such as Aislafast, who can advise you on what type of material suits your needs.
