sound insulation walls

Sound insulation walls. Noise Isolating walls. ¿Loud music, traffic sounds, noises from neighbors, or machinery?

Living with noise can affect your health. Noise can prevent rest and generate stress. Espaciohogar we tell more on video walls with insulation.

If you are thinking about isolating your house against noise or temperature we will summarize the most effective materials for insulation walls.

noise pollution

Sometimes when the noise is constant one comes to feel that invade your privacy, if he noise difficulty sleeping, reading or concentrating. Live bearing noises influences our mood. Excessive noise has a name, noise pollution. It refers to excessive and troublesome caused by human activities, industry, transport, construction noise.

The concept of pollutant focuses on the harmful effects of certain noise levels. An annoying sound can produce physiological and psychological effects on people. Be exposed to constant noise can affect our hearing and the incidence of psychological disorders.

In Spain the level of acoustic comfort is set at 55 dBA above this level the sound is annoying for rest or communication. And, in a world where there is increasing raises his voice and increasingly amplifier products sound are built, we need at home are materials that contrarrestren this isolating situation, not only the noise from the street, but also of those who can produce our neighbors themselves.

Insulation in walls

Today you can find different materials to isolate walls, You can do it yourself, so we will propose a series of materials, some easier to get and cheaper than others, as well as in terms of placement and uses. We can actually find a number of materials and do not have to be corrosive or harmful to the environment, so take note because surely here are some where you had even fallen.

Materials with thermal and acoustic insulating properties

Fiberglass

It is a mineral product with a prose structure makes the air is inside, and therefore functions as acoustic insulation and heat due to the heat (hot air) is trapped inside the fiber, thereby preventing heat conduction allowing denominate insulation. It can be used on walls, ceilings, walls, attics. wall It sold in panels with Kraft paper. It is a material easy to install and withstands high temperatures.

Fiberglass consists of small filaments of glass, very, very fine, and that is why it is also known by the name of Pele's hair. As we said, this is a highly insulating material, and therefore should not miss on our list of must when we want to isolate the walls of our house or local.

Fiberglass competes with carbon fiber, is that, although the latter is cheaper, is not as strong as fiberglass, so, depending on what you need, it will take one or the other.

Where is it used? In different types of products ranging from surfboards to automotive body, through bows and crossbows, hockey sticks, bats tents, And even in ferrules!

Rockwool

It is a mineral fiber material made from basalt rocks, its structure brake air movements. Able to create a thermal and acoustic barrier. It can be used in partitions, walls,  walls, ceilings, attics. It is easy to install, durable and fire resistant.

Cork

A natural and organic product. His form in cells confers great power heat insulating acoustic and. Cork is extremely durable and waterproof.

Where does the cork? Cork is simply the insulating layer that protects the cork from extreme weather conditions, such as high temperatures, low humidity (which may eventually become dry), and even can protect them from fires that are caused spontaneously due to the same extreme weather conditions.

Therefore, this material is, for many years, essential, both well for its resistance and its usability and natural condition. As stated above, it is a product as environmentally friendly, and that is completely biodegradable and its production does not involve any pollution, so it is one of the most environmentally friendly materials with the environment we can use.

Moreover, in its many applications, among which we can highlight its role in situations need for waterproofing, thermal insulation, can not putrefy (and therefore is incorruptible the different agents rotting materials such as wood), it is lightweight and is present in different professional fields, such as footwear, automotive, bottling process, the manufacture of furniture, and even ceramic industry and glass lay hold of this material. However, all these roles played by the cork, what matters most is its high insulation capacity, and especially sound.

Wood fiber panels

ecological and recyclable material, the wood comes from sustainable forest exploitation. Thanks to its porous structure prevents the cold wall, moisture regulating and capable of absolution the sound waves. Improved damping impact noise. It is a durable material. It is used to insulate walls, ceilings and attics.

Acoustic isolation

Polyurethane sheet

Open pore structure ensures a good level of acoustic insulation impact noise. It is suitable for walls, floors, ceilings and attic. The plates usually have 2 x1.

Acoustic panel napa

Formed by a layer of "nappa" polyester adhered. Achieves a good result, the average thickness is 40 mm

Basotec pyramidal

Made of flexible polyurethane foam. It is very lightweight, elastic and flexible. Their open cell structure formed from the melamine resin Basotec make an insulating material for sound and vibration. It is not flammable, this material is widely used to insulate thermally and acoustically buildings, trains or cars.
