It is essential when building or renovating a house to carry out either sound insulation or sound insulation. When one or the other of these two arrangements is made, the interior comfort of the house is not affected by noises of various origins. Many people confuse these two forms of insulation. Don’t they have differences? This is what Isolabec Multi Concept will demonstrate in the details to follow.

Sound insulation: what is it?

Installing a sound insulation system is like putting in place devices that significantly reduce noise from outside a home. It can also be noises generated within a room of the house. The goal in this case is to prevent the transmission of noise from one room to another.

Sound insulation has as its unit of measurement the dB(A). Outside noise has an impact. The latter must not exceed 35 dB(A). It is on this condition guaranteed by sound insulation, that the occupants of a house will not be bothered by external noises.

Setting up sound insulation is like making the whole house waterproof in relation to sound. For this purpose, special attention is paid to windows and other glazed exits. By way of illustration, by installing double or triple glazing, we manage to prevent external sounds from spreading in the house (or room). Of course, it is important that the thickness of the glazing is not too high. For this, the experts of Isolabec Multi Concept use the principle of mass-spring-mass.

To install the sound insulation system on the walls, professionals use suitable materials. Here, on the other hand, the thickness is quite important. Due to the greater importance of their mass, stones to a large extent prevent noise from passing through the walls. It creates a phonic inertia that eliminates the vibrations related to sound.

Sound insulation: what is it?

Sound insulation is a correction of the propagation of sound inside the sound. It allows to have an excellent sound in the house. In this way, the sounds produced inside a room will be limited in their propagation. To this end, Isolabec Multi Concept reduces the time it takes for sound to be broadcast on the walls of the various obstacles it encounters. As a result, noise reverberation is reduced.

In other words, sound insulation consists of correcting a noise nuisance. The success of this operation is noted by a significant decrease in the echo produced in the isolated house (or room). It also prevents airborne noise from spreading from one room to another in the house. As an example of airborne noise, there is the sound of television. Experts in sound insulation pay particular attention to doors as well as partitions. For greater efficiency, double partitioning is carried out based on the mass-spring-mass law.

Sound and acoustic insulation: the difference

Referring to the different definitions of the two processes, the difference lies in the origins of the noises whose propagation is to be avoided (or reduced). In fact, in the case of sound insulation, the noise to prevent the spread comes from outside the house. On the other hand, in the case of sound insulation, it is a question of reducing the internal propagation of noise produced in the house.

When the sound insulation of your home is well done, your neighbors will not hear the noises that will be produced in your home. In the case of sound insulation, you will not be affected by the noises produced outside. Your comfort inside the house is largely optimized.

To whom to entrust the acoustic and sound insulation of your home?

Whether it is sound insulation or sound insulation , the objective is that the installed device is efficient. And for this objective to be effective, it is essential to entrust this work to professionals. Poorly performed soundproofing can generate sleep disorders.

With more than 30 years of activity, our company Isolabec Multi Concept , provides many services including sound and acoustic insulation of houses. We operate in Montreal, Laval and Longueuil. For a certain efficiency of our interventions in terms of soundproofing, we use the best materials on the market. These materials include:

  • insulating wool;
  • cellulose;
  • resilient bars.

All these materials, which are both efficient and affordable, are suitable for housing, shops and offices.
