Where Do You Use Fiberglass Sound Insulation?
Anywhere that you would install fiberglass insulation where you also need sound control is a good place for fiberglass soundproofing barriers. This includes:
- HVAC: For quieting noisy vents and air ducts.
- Pipes: To block the noise of rushing water through pipes.
- Ceiling: Tile toppers for a ceiling soundproofing option.

Is Fiberglass Good for Soundproofing?
While fiberglass insulation will not magically make all outside noise disappear, it is an effective soundproofing tool that can noticeably reduce any sound pollution. It’s important to note that any doors, windows and other features that cannot be insulated will continue to let in sound as usual.
To put the soundproofing qualities of fiberglass to scale, you can consider its Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC) rating. NRC values generally range between 0 and 1 — the higher the number, the better the material’s sound absorption qualities. Typical fiberglass insulation usually receives an NRC rating between 0.90 and 0.95. This rating is very high, making fiberglass an excellent choice for noise reduction in schools, private residences, offices, commercial buildings and more.
Install fiberglass in all interior walls, ceilings and flooring where possible to maximize its soundproofing effects. When you choose Soundproof Cow, you can use our easy-to-install fiberglass blanket to help soundproof your home or business by adhering it wherever you need it. Use it to cover noisy machines, or hang it on a shared wall to prevent noise from bleeding through.
How Does Fiberglass Insulation Work?
Fiberglass insulation helps soundproof rooms by absorbing sound. Thermal insulation blocks the transfer of cold, heat and sound by trapping sound waves and temperatures in the insulation and stopping them from passing through. This property makes it an excellent and simple soundproofing tool.
Sound pollution can enter in two forms — through the air and by direct impact — and fiberglass insulation can counter both types. Sounds you hear when you’re at home, TV noise and cars passing by are referred to as airborne noise pollution. Your washing machine or somebody else’s footsteps create physical vibrations, resulting in impact noise. Fiberglass insulation works to absorb both types of sound pollution, significantly reducing their effects.
The thicker and more dense the insulation, the better the fiberglass can absorb sound and temperatures. Fiberglass is an efficient sound barrier that can greatly reduce noise’s ability to enter or exit a space.
At Soundproof Cow, we offer fiberglass soundproofing barriers reinforced with additional sound dampening technology for a compact and highly effective soundproofing solution. Our Quiet Barrier™ soundproofing material helps reduce noise further and creates a more versatile product.
