Green Glue Company raises prices once again!

Filed under: Soundproofing — admin @ 4:06 pm

Once again the Green Glue company has raised prices by 10% on all their products including Green Glue Tubes, Green Glue Buckets, Green Glue Sealant and Green Glue Noiseproofing Clips. It is unfortunate that the Green Glue Company has not done any innovation to their product line in years other than raising prices. Putting that gripe aside the Green Glue Product is still a great product that we continue to utilize in almost all soundproofing projects. It is high quality and high performance. Best of all being that our president was trained by the co-founder of the Green Glue product his knowledge of the product and application is 2nd to none.

It has been awhile…..

It’s been a while since we last blogged and were glad to be back!

By now you are sure to have seen our updated website clear and concise and by now you are aware of our popular You tube channel. Additionally we have added lots of new products so browse around and take a look. One particular product which i am very excited to bring to your attention is the LED surface mounted lights. Soundproofing ceilings always had to compromise when we wanted to install recessed lights as those would be cutting a hole right thru the soundproofing. Not anymore! With these lights you get a similar, and some may say nicer, look than a recessed light without compromising the soundproofing. Why is that? Because these are installed using a simple junction box, also known as a “J box” which can be wrapped in an acoustical putty pad, additionally you do not need to cut more than a hole for the wires to go in and out while the light itself is fastened to the surface of the finished soundproofed ceiling.

Concrete Ceilings/Floors

Surprisingly to many people concrete is not soundproof (or at least not as soundproof as people believe it to be).

So you want to decouple the ceiling however just adding resilient sound clips with drywall is not enough as you will not have the basic component of insulation there. Therefore we suggest that you first fur out the ceiling to allow for at least 2 inches of mineral wool and then add your resilient sound clips to the furring strips. This will also make for a much easier installation of the clips rather than having to fasten them to concrete especially if you are using our highly recommended Whisper Clips that require two screws per clip.

Fans are located at top and bottom of the enclosure to ensure that air movement thru out the Acoustirack enclosure keeps cool. The patented Active Noise Control from Silentium ensures that the noise of the fans and the noise that can pass through the fan openings are not heard.

sound3Your basement can benefit from soundproofing. Although you are probably not thinking about it, your basement can create a lot of noise. This is the area of the house that usually has the washer, dryer, boiler and other appliances. You may also use the basement as a man cave or entertainment room. You can take steps to soundproof the basement and reduce the amount of noise that travels from it.

One of the simplest ways to make a basement soundproof is to install and use the right materials during the construction process. You also want to check the blueprint for your house.

Air Conditioner Soundproofing

Filed under: Soundproofing Appliances — Deborah Dera @ 7:23 am

air conditionerA noisy air conditioner can quickly ruin a fun summer day or night. It is an annoying sound that can also scare pets and drive children crazy. However, air conditioners are a requirement in some locations because of the heat. During the spring and summer, the noise coming from air conditioners drives many people to ask about soundproofing.

Despite manufacturers’ claims that modern air conditioners are less noisy, the owners know the truth. They are still loud and can be heard all over the house. Your closed windows can block some of the sound, but you are confronted by the noise the minute you walk into your yard. In addition, your neighbors can hear it and may be annoyed by it. Soundproofing can help you keep the peace with your neighbors. (more…)
