Space saving soundproofing in London & across the UK
43% of Londoners live in flats. That’s nearly 3.5m people in London alone that potentially have noisy upstairs neighbours impacting their lives and in some cases their health too. When noise from above is a problem, the simplest solution is to create an isolated, soundproof ceiling using Oscar Iso-Mount acoustic hangers, which work by absorbing the vibrations that cause the transfer of unwanted noise between floors.
Oscar Iso-Mounts are specially designed to be as non-obtrusive and space saving as possible. The acoustic hangers are height adjustable so can be used across uneven joists to allow for a flat finish with minimum height loss (as little as 6mm). Once installation is complete, it appears no different to a normal plastered ceiling.
Perfect for soundproofing in London in flats, apartments and house conversions, the entire installation process is carried out from the room below, with no work required to the floor above.
Class leading soundproofing in London
Building Regulations Document E sets minimum standards for residential soundproofing in buildings throughout England and Wales. While these stringent regulations are great for ensuring new builds and conversions comply, the standards sadly do not apply to existing dwellings, leaving hundreds of thousands of properties with poor sound insulation. Your upstairs neighbours may not even be especially noisy, but due to the way most homes have been built, poor sound insulation and how sound travels between floors, you can still hear them.
The Iso-Mount range is not only compliant, but exceeds the requirements set in Document E for airborne and impact sound making it the ideal soundproofing solution for your home.
