Improve the acoustic performance of your walls
The first step is to select the most appropriate lining to add to your wall, this will depend on how much space you are willing to lose from your room - there is a performance trade-off between space and acoustic performance gain.
Good performance can be achieved for normal sound insulation problems by adding a 50mm lining but if you have a low frequency bass noise problem you should be using an acoustic lining with at least a 75mm cavity. For the ultimate performance gain you should select a high performance lining system and maximise the cavity depth.
- Panel Liner - Easy installation – panel based system which minimises the loss of floor space and is relatively easy to install
- Low Space Liner - when the space you have a available in the room is limited cavity depth can be as little as 25mm
- High Performance Liner - when you want to maximise the improvement and floor space is not an issue – the larger your cavity depth the more performance you achieve minimum cavity depth with this system 50mm.
Note - The High Performance Liner system offers the highest level of performance and the larger the cavity the higher the acoustic performance particularly with the low frequency noise.
