A good night's sleep from noise issues

Sound Solutions help a couple with noise issues into their master bedroom

When Lindsey Walker and Andre Matula moved into their traditional, red brick town house in Stratford-Upon-Avon fifteen years ago, they could not have predicted how much external noise from their neighbours would impact their lives. They needed a solution or a good night’s sleep would be a thing of the past.

Their period property was formally a pub known as The Gay Dog. Due to the age and style of the property, Lindsey and Andre were experiencing issues with noise coming from the adjoining property, particularly through the wall and the floor in their master bedroom.

Andre explains: “We looked around to see what products were available on the market which would help to deaden the sound. That’s when we came across British Gypsum’s Sound Solutions range. What particularly caught our attention was that Sound Solutions products have been awarded a Quiet Mark by the Noise Abatement Society, reassuring us the solution would be effective.

What particularly caught our attention was that Sound Solutions products have been awarded a Quiet Mark by the Noise Abatement Society, reassuring us the solution would be effective.

“After speaking with an installer about the range, they recommended we opt for a system called ‘Low Space Liner’. We chose this solution as it could be fitted retrospectively with minimal impact on the existing room space.”

Low Space Liner, was installed using GypLyner metal channels which were attached to the existing wall. 25mm Isover APR 1200 acoustic insulation was then installed between the channels. The  GypLyner metal framing was  then lined with a double layer of 15mm Gyproc SoundBloc a specialist acoustic plasterboard. The wall was then finished using a finish  plaster skim.

Andre continues: “We were also impressed with the installation time. We were expecting the entire process to take two or three days however, we were pleasantly surprised when the project was completed in just one day.”

With Sound Solutions now in place, Lindsey and Andre have noticed that the noise travelling through the bedroom wall has been significantly reduced and are happy with the result.

Lindsey adds: “The solution has improved the level of sound between the two buildings dramatically. The main source of noise actually came from the kitchen next door and was the area that caused most concern. Since the renovation the noise is less intrusive and we can enjoy our weekend lie-ins.”
