New Ceiling Soundproofing Assemblies

BEST New Ceiling Soundproofing Assembly

This assembly is perfect for ceilings in condominiums and apartments. Use this assembly to reduce airborne and structural borne noise transfer between two rooms separated by a ceiling/floor assembly. This type of construction is a good solution for a variety of spaces from bedrooms to mechanical/machinery rooms. If you have an apartment, condominium or hotel that does not have an existing ceiling with soundproofing, this new ceiling soundproof assembly is exactly what you need. These assemblies are specifically for soundproofing a new ceiling, not soundproofing an existing ceiling. We offer a separate assembly for existing ceiling soundproofing that you can find by clicking the link below. Poor sound control from your ceiling can quickly ruin a person’s experience. If you are putting ceilings in hotel rooms, for example, it’s important to keep good soundproofing in mind. A hotel without soundproofing material in the ceilings will often generate complaints from people staying below noisy occupants. An apartment or condominium without an adequately soundproofed ceiling can be equally frustrating for tenants below.

GOOD New Ceiling Soundproofing Assembly

This assembly will improve the noise blocking performance of a newly constructed ceiling. Use this assembly to reduce minimal amounts of airborne noise transfer between two rooms separated by a ceiling/floor assembly. This type of construction will reduce sounds like people talking and TV/Stereo at low volumes. This type of construction can also reduce loud footsteps and the sound of people practicing musical instruments. No matter what kind of building you are constructing, it is always in your interest to make sure you have adequate soundproofing. Failure to soundproof the ceiling may mean poor sound control in a room, even if you have taken steps to soundproof the walls. The result can be fewer tenants in your building or fewer guests in your hotel. If you are constructing an industrial facility, putting in new ceiling soundproofing can protect workers on the lower level from the sounds of any machinery on the upper level, reducing risk of a workplace hearing injury and potentially improving morale. The benefits of new ceiling soundproofing far outweigh the costs. See Existing Ceiling Soundproofing Assemblies Back to How to Soundproof a Ceiling

I just wanted to let you know that in the end, sealing the air spaces on this door worked just fine and took care of the problem.

I really appreciate you taking so much time to share your expertise with me, and in particular recommending I try the simpler solution before investing in more expensive noise barriers. That is a big credit to you and your business.
