Enjoy the sounds of silence with Sound Insuation
Unless you reside in a secluded area, you’re exposed to constant noise-related activity that goes on throughout the day and night. It is almost impossible to escape the noise pollution that originates either inside or outside of your home of office. Since spray foam insulation serves as a barrier to sounds, it’s often used as Sound Insulation to reduce noise levels.
There are two main noise types, airborne and flanking noise.
- Airborne relates to talking, television, stereos, vacuum cleaners, washing machines, lawn mowers, motorcycles, trains, and airplanes, just to name a few.
- Flanking noises are the sounds that originate within the walls, such as those that are plumbing related.
By filling and sealing every crevice and crack that can serve as a conduit through which sound travels, spray foam insulation serves as Sound Insulation and a barrier to these noises and reduces sound transfer through a building’s floor, walls and roof. The open-cell foam spray has natural sound-absorbing properties which helps soundproof, so the sounds of running water, toilets flushing, water softener operation or walking with hard-soled shoes or high heels, are muffled. This ability to control sound is a highly desirable feature, particularly in multi-unit dwellings, including condos, apartments, town houses and attached or semi-attached residences, resulting in fewer complaints about next-door or an upper floor noises.
