CEILINGS

A guide to domestic ceiling soundproofing

Option 1:
Clip and furring channel system

This system is ideally suited to ceilings with cavities and timber joists. 

The current ceilings will be removed and waste disposed.

  • Remove existing ceiling and dispose of waste (if requested).

  • Fill cavity with 100mm 60kg mineral wool insulation.

  • Fix clip and furring channels at 400mm centers across ceiling joists.

  • Fix first layer of 15mm SoundBloc plasterboard to furring channels.

  • Seal all gaps with acoustic sealant

  • Adhere Tecsound membrane over entirety of boarded area.

  • Fix second layer of 15mm SoundBloc plasterboard to furring channels.

  • Plaster finish (if requested).

  • Approx 7cm loss of space

  • Construct independent timber frame ceiling. (Depth dependant on room length and width)

  • Fill cavity with 100mm 60kg mineral wool insulation.

  • Fix clip and furring channels at 400mm centers across ceiling joists.

  • Fix first layer of 15mm SoundBloc plasterboard to furring channels.

  • Seal all gaps with acoustic sealant

  • Adhere Tecsound membrane over entirety of boarded area.

  • Fix second layer of 15mm SoundBloc plasterboard to furring channels.

  • Plaster finish (if requested).

  • Approx 7cm loss of space
