What Is the Best Insulation for Soundproofing?
Cotton insulation is the most effective for soundproofing. Soundproofing insulation should absorb and dissipate sound energy, making cotton’s softness ideal for limiting unwanted noise.
As a fibrous, porous material, cotton can absorb a significant amount of sound energy. When a sound wave reaches the cotton insulation, it bounces between the various fibers and pores, causing friction. As a result, the sound wave loses energy, much of which converts into heat. The heat dissipates inside the insulation, leaving little sound energy to reflect.
Our insulation features recycled cotton fibers for premier sound absorption. This material holds a noise reduction coefficient (NRC) rating of .95, meaning it absorbs 95% of the sound energy that reaches it. With added benefits like a Class A™ flammability rating, simple installation and skin-safe handling, our insulation is the best choice for your home.
How Thick Should Soundproof Insulation Be?
Thickness is an important quality for sound-deadening insulation. Thick material provides more space for sound energy, resulting in greater absorption.
Balancing thickness with density is essential for optimal performance. If the density is too high, the insulation will not welcome enough of the sound wave’s energy. Instead, it will reflect frequencies toward the source. However, density is essential for blocking sound and preventing transmission. The right balance of thickness and density allows soundproofing insulation to reduce echoing effectively.
How Effective Is Sound-Dampening Insulation at Reducing Noise?
Soundproofing insulation specializes in echo reduction to deaden sound.
When sound reaches an insulated wall, the energy that passes through the surface to the insulation converts into heat. The heat then dissipates across the insulation.
Our soundproofing insulation has a .95 NRC rating, meaning it stops 95% of the sound energy it interacts with from echoing. It also reduces sound transmission so that less noise travels between rooms.
