Which Quiet Barrier™ soundproofing product is right for me?
Quiet Barrier™ can be added to a variety of common wall / ceiling constructions to improve the sound blocking performance of the structure. Choose the right Quiet Barrier™ product based on the type of noise you are trying to prevent from entering or leaving the space. Quiet Barrier™ products perform well when trying to deter common noises with average decibel levels. These noises can be generated from voices, TV’s and stereos. If noise levels are higher than usual, typically from loud stereo systems, home theater or recording studio environments, then other products used in conjunction with Quiet Barrier™ may be necessary.
If you are trying to prevent common conversations or voices from entering or leaving a space, then choose Quiet Barrier™ MD. If you are trying to prevent TV and stereo noise from entering or leaving a space, then choose Quiet Barrier™HD.
How Quiet Barrier™ works:
Quiet Barrier™ products block the transmission of noise from one area to the next. The “noise source” hits the barrier and is reflected back into the room or space of origin. See figure 1. Typically, the noise is not muffled or absorbed in any way, which means that the decibel level within the source room remains the same or is increased. The difference between the source noise and the transmitted noise is the sound transmission loss.
