If you are a member of a band or specialise in playing a certain instrument you will be aware that it requires practice, practice and more practice. However, finding a suitable location to practice in can be difficult as you have to be able to find somewhere that is not going to disturb others. If this were not an issue you would probably prefer to perform such activity in your own home. Well, sound will not be a problem when you purchase relevant soundproof products from Acoustic Supplies.
The garage area is usually a perfect place in which to play all your favourite songs if it is currently unused or redundant. Although, the noise created cannot be completely eliminated, soundproofing will make a…
Any considerate homeowner should be respectful of those around them. You have a responsibility to keep levels of sound down to a minimum as no-one wants to be subject to excess levels of noise. It can sometimes be difficult to keep quiet in the home, but instead of just accepting this, you should take some form of action to ensure that sound does not get out of control.

Pretty much every home in the UK is affected by noise in some way. Many of us choose to live in a quiet area of the country, but it is near impossible to get away from the sound of traffic or noisy neighbours. We also all live in homes of different ages. Some live in period properties, while others may live in a new-build. Acoustic Supplies can inform you that the age of a home makes no difference when you want to soundproof it.
Soundproofing can be as effective in a new home as it would be in an old home. The purpose of it is to reduce the amount of noise that you can hear from the outdoors or next door, whilst also cutting…
When moving to a new property, as well as ensuring that you find the best possible home for you and your family, you also need to consider the local neighbourhood. Being in a prime location is useful, but you also need to think about levels of noise around your new home. If you can hear your next door neighbours when in the home, it is also likely that they will be able to hear you too. If you are considerate you will not want to disturb them, nor will you want to be interrupted by them.
On such occasions you need to think about a form of sound reduction as you don’t want to get off on the wrong foot with your…
One thing you cannot compensate for when moving to a brand new property is the amount of noise that you will hear.

Sound reduction can be achieved when you purchase a set of sound barriers from Acoustic Supplies for the perimeters of your home. We have a range of barriers available that have different weights and densities and you can choose a relevant barrier depending on how much…
There is nothing as annoying as going home to rest, only to be disturbed by noises from the outdoors. There are so many different sources of noise and many different areas in the home where it can filter through and cause you a headache. However, one of the most commonly unreliable areas is the doors that you currently have installed. This not only applies to homes, but can also be relevant in offices, nightclubs, cinemas, theatres, the list goes on…
Soundproof doors are designed to block out and absorb noise from the outdoors, helping to improve sound absorption and noise insulation. There are usually two types of door you can choose between, timber and steel. Both will usually also prove to be…
The pub is a British institution. Public houses have been around for hundreds of years, but in recent times there has been an increasing number of pubs shut down either because of financial reasons or because they have been causing excessive levels of sound. Many establishments such as this rely on the money they bring in from live music in order to survive and if you get on the wrong side of those who live close-by, it could be the end of your venue.
Acoustic Supplies wants to help preserve as many pubs as possible by offering them a whole host of soundproofing solutions. Noise insulation can be achieved in some way with each and every one of them and…
The population is constantly increasing and not surprisingly this means that noise levels are now at their highest ever point.

The roads of the UK are getting busier and busier as the number of people driving cars continues to increase. Not only does this have implications as far as air pollution is concerned, but if you live near a major road or motorway it can also give you a real headache as far as noise pollution is concerned. Being woken up first thing in the morning or being kept up late at night by outdoor noise is enough to drive anyone crazy and could even affect your health. Acoustic Supplies does not want this to happen, hence why we recommend that such homes invest in soundproof materials.
If you live in a densely populated neighbourhood, soundproofing could be a real saviour. It may…
