Times are hard for many British businesses meaning company owners rely on having a reliable workforce to ensure their firm is kept afloat and demand for its products/services remain suitably high. In order to do this, you need suitable premises from which to work from and should equip staff with the necessary tools they need to do their job proficiently.
But there is one other key element that workers often require to carry out their duties successfully and that is a little bit of peace and quiet. Noise from both inside and outside the building can have a detrimental effect on the performance levels of employees such is the potential distraction it poses.
The way we communicate with one another has changed massively over the past few decades. The introduction of the desktop computer, followed by the development of laptops, tablets, mobile phones etc. has completely transformed our lives and how we live them.
Because of these advancements it means that many people no longer need to travel into the office to touch base with their colleagues. As a consequence, working from home has grown in popularity.
However, working from your own personal residence can have its drawbacks depending on where you live and the types of neighbours you have. If you live in a generally noisy area you may find it extremely difficult trying to bury…
Winter is in theory behind us, and we’re slowly coming into the spring and summer months. This means late night BBQ’s next door, maybe their children in the garden all hours of the day.

If the noise from your neighbours is starting to impact on your life and make you stressed and depressed. Then the team at Acoustic Supplies is there to help you get the right product for your home.
It’s common to think that soundproofing is for recording studios and music venues, but it’s becoming more common…
Britons get so little time to relax nowadays that it can be extremely annoying when your neighbour/s blatantly disregard your home life by causing excess noise. It can leave you in something of a quandary as whilst you want the noise to go away, you will not want to upset your neighbours in your efforts to ask them to quieten down.
One thing you can very rarely compensate for when buying a home is surrounding noise. When living close to a nearby major road it will obviously result in noise at certain times of the day, but it is difficult to judge whether noisy neighbours will be a problem after a couple of viewings.
Here are a few different ways of tackling all your noise-related…
When buying your first property or when looking to relocate, there are many different considerations that need to be made to ensure that you find that dream home.
Firstly, the area you move to needs to be nearby your place of work, local schools and major transport links. The house itself needs to be able to comfortably accommodate your entire family and perhaps have a garden, garage etc.
However, there is one consideration that you can never usually compensate for when you move into a brand new home and that is the noise levels that surround it.
Only after completing your move will you be able to gauge whether noise is going to cause you a serious issue and if it does then you need…
Barely a day goes by without someone in the UK falling foul of the law due to causing noise-related issues. The authorities have clamped down on noisy neighbours in recent years due to a vast rise in complaints from householders which should serve as a warning to anyone with little regard for those they live amongst.
You could be putting personal possessions at risk if you fail to adhere to noise laws. It isn’t unusual for the police to permanently remove noise generated devices e.g. stereos, TV, radios, which can cost you money and cause you huge embarrassment in the local neighbourhood.
It may be the case that you aren’t aware of the problems caused when you switch on electrical equipment and you would hope…
Noise in the home can be an on-going nightmare. Settling down to watch your favourite shows or turning in for the night can easily be spoilt by inconsiderate neighbours whose only agenda appears to be making as much noise as is humanly possible. Of course, not all areas suffer with these problems, but large parts of the UK do and JCW are here to help them.
When you buy a JCW product you can rest assured that have purchased an item that has been specifically designed to absorb or deflect away…
At times it almost feels as though it is virtually impossible to get away from excess noise. Even when you close the front door of your home and lock yourself away from the outside world, noise can often sneak its way into your property as generated by those living next to you or close by. And it always seems to happen at the most inopportune moments; when going to bed last thing at night or trying to find some peace and quiet after a long day at work.
Sometimes noise is simply out of your control. It may drive you up the wall and leave you tearing your hair out but neither of those happenings are going to solve the issue. You need to think…
The level of noise complaints in the UK has been rising over the past few years for a variety of reasons not least due to the growing population and increase in homes being built in close proximity to each other. As the nation continues to expand and effectively shrink, so too will the number of homeowners suffering from noise disruption in the home. As the problem becomes more common place there will be an increasing demand for solutions. Currently the best solution to dealing with noise pollution is to install soundproofing products which work towards mitigating the levels of disruption felt in the home. This article will look closely at several key soundproofing products and explain how their use can help the level…
