Sound Service (Oxford) Ltd has recently added an
award winning Acoustic Membrane to its extensive range of
The 1.2mm thick nano vacuumed rubber membrane blocks airborne noise in a similar way to lead. The Acoustic Membrane has won many awards including the “European Merit Award Winner for Research & Technology” 1999 - 2001.
The thinness of this product provides minimum loss of room space with maximum noise reduction. The membrane only weighs 2Kg/ m² and is easy to handle and carry.
“Before the introduction of the Acoustic Membrane our customers were using our heavy Soundproofing Mat on the ceiling. Although the products perform the same way, the Acoustic Membrane is so much lighter and easier to work with. It can even be pre stuck and overlapped to plasterboard before it is offered up to the ceiling.” Outlines Stephen Backhouse from the companies Technical Team.
The Acoustic Membrane should be sandwiched between two layers of plasterboard and has revolutionised the way a ceiling is soundproofed. Work can now be carried out by a single person as the roll is simple to work with making for a quick, easy, home improvement product.
The membrane easily folds and bends round corners and edges to protect against flanking sound. This has meant that it is being specified for use between fabric and other materials to help reduce noise between working areas.
Not only is it versatile it boasts a very high Performance noise reduction of (22dB Rw) for minimal thickness and is well in excess of Part E of the Building Sound Regulations when used in conjunction with other materials.
