CAD20 SOUNDPROOFING WALL PANELS
CAD20-WP (Part Code A370) panel insulation is specifically designed
to absorb and reduce airborne noise through party walls. It is extremely
effective when applied to single skin walls such as breeze, brick or studwork partitioning. These panels are ideal
for improving the soundproofing performance of domestic party walls and lightweight stud partitions. It is easy to install and
can produce excellent results for a minimal 50mm of space.
It is essential that there are no holes in the existing wall. The most common source of noise leakage is where the flooring and ceiling joists are fixed. The wall should be as airtight as is physically possible.
If any party walls to be treated are directly under the roof the loft must be checked to ensure that the dividing wall continues through to the roof. If it does not, the wall should be constructed up to the roof. Care must be taken to ensure an airtight seal exists between the roof and the wall. This is best achieved with flexible mastic sealant.
A further improvement in sound insulation can be gained by boarding out the loft with 22mm T&G Floor Grade Chipboard after 200mm fibreglass quilt installed.
Installation for Walls
The insulation is simply bonded onto the wall with our adhesive and the plasterboard is bonded to the panels in the same way.
Where neccessary, the insulation is easily cut with a sharp knife or jig-saw.
Once applied it should be left overnight for the adhesive to cure. It may be neccessary to support the insulation during this time.
When the insulation is securely stuck, two layers of 12.5mm plasterboard should be glued on top with the same adhesive.
A small gap should be left around the edges of the plasterboard to avoid bridging the resilient layer. This gap should be filled with flexible mastic sealant and a plaster skim coat applied to finish off the plasterboard.
Even greater noise reduction can be obtained if the treatment is applied to BOTH sides of the wall.
This product and method is not suitable for loud music and cinema noise coming through a wall.
This optional 45mm deep acoustic flanking strip is ideal for keeping the plasterboard from touching the floor/wall/ceiling. Any excess can be cut away before applying the acoustic sealant. In many instances it can be pulled out after the plasterboard adhesive has dried.
