|| Noise Proof Walls
What are “noise proof walls?”
Noise proof walls are walls designed to block external sound from
entering a room and internal sound from exiting a room. Noise proof
walls are made up of proprietary soundproofing materials such as
sound-engineered drywall and adhesive that work together to block
the travel of sound. Noise proof walls are also referred to as “soundproof
walls” or “sound engineered walls,” and are increasingly
common in luxury single-family residences, duplexes, and multi-family
residences like apartments and condominiums wherein tenants share
common walls and ceilings.
How do noise proof walls block sound?
Sound is energy that travels through by way of vibration through
a solid, liquid, or gas. Noise proof walls block sound by obstructing
the path the sound wave must travel in order to become audible on
the other side of the wall. This is accomplished by absorbing and/or
slowing down the vibrations of the sound wave in a process called
“dampening.” Dampening is achieved by increasing the
density of the wall and thereby obstructing the ability of sound
wave to travel, also known as “disconnecting” the wall.
How can I create a noise proof wall in my
If you want to noise proof an existing wall in your home, in most
cases you can use soundproof drywall, also known as “sound-engineered
drywall.” The great thing about most soundproof drywall is
that it can be applied directly over existing drywall on either
side of the wall, and even to the ceiling. As long as the existing
walls are in relatively good condition, there is no need to take
them down – you don’t even need to remove the paint.
Soundproof drywall is a great, cost-effective way to upgrade the
acoustics of your home, office, or studio without taking on a complicated
