Sound Proof Drywall Presentation: Turn noise into heat, which you can't hear. Great for bedrooms, nanny/granny suites, boardrooms and offices, let alone demising walls between neighbours!

This presentation shows how sound engineered wall panels stop sound by the use of visco-elastic polymers – which convert sound waves. Yes, they changes noise into heat.

Sounds unbelievable, but that’s science hard at work. This product has millions of square feet of installation behind it, is lab tested and field certified.

This technology not only allows for the easiest manner in which to reach building code STC ratings, but is cheaper than all other methods and it doesn’t fail.

Sound Proof Drywall Presentation: Turn noise into heat, which you can't hear. Great for bedrooms, nanny/granny suites, boardrooms and offices, let alone demising walls between neighbours!

  1. 1. The Fundamentals of Sound and Noise How to get rid of your Neighbour! Presented by SoundProofDrywall.ca
  2. 2. Let’s Learn, Have Fun & Get Quiet• My hope is to be informative and interesting to you.• My purpose is to help you be a better, more informed consumer when you need a sound blocking solution. “Why talk about NOISE?” you might ask. Because from the CEO who wants to hold a confidential meeting, to the home owner who wants privacy in the bedroom, you are all constantly affected by too much sound. It’s a difficult problem to fix!
  3. 3. So, WHAT’S happening? In today’s environment, with Green Initiatives, LEED and sustainability, more is being done with less, including in building design, where you are living in a more where walls are thinner and… eventually, your privacy is compromised!
  4. 4. Not to mention… The technological advances of music players and home entertainment systems, you can now “live the experience” in the privacy of your own home. Combined, these changes cause serious conflicts! In a culture where you don’t even want to see your neighbour, much less hear them, you suddenly find yourself…LIVING with them!
  5. 5. VERY interesting, but so what? It’s a big issue in that noise is the #2 litigation issue in residential and multifamily construction Mold and moisture is #1 Foundation settling is #3 Why are there so many “Noise” issues? Due to no design #1 [no thought] Due to poor design #2 [bad thought] Due to failed design #3 [poor execution] Payout settlements average $US32K per unit!!
  6. 6. And this affects me HOW exactly?•Do you live in a noisy condo today?•Will you buy a noisy IN eed Help! house one day?•Are your bedroom walls paper-thin?•Can you hear the others?• Or can they hear you?
  7. 7. STC’s vs. dB’s you say! …what? The professional call them STC’s [Sound Transmission Class] But the rest of the world calls them decibels [dB’s] ~~ But one thing everyone agrees on ~~ “The more you can’t hear them, the better off we will all be!”
  8. 8. Let’s get a sense of dB LEVELS Reduction  Noise Level [Subjective]  Typical Sounds dB needed to  produce quiet Typical wall gives  only about 30 dB of sound  Very quiet  Breathing 10 BLOCKING Whispering 20 Pleasantly quiet Quiet library 30 Quiet home 40 0 Normal Conversation at 3‐5‘ Normal noise level General office building interior 50 20 Active bedrooms/offices  50+ 20+ Loud noise level Vacuum cleaner 70 40 A decent argument Noisy office; typical factory interior Rail car 80 50 Home theatre, normal operation A nasty argument  Diesel locomotive 90 60 Home theatre, loud sequences Hearing loss if sustained Near a jackhammer 100 70 Car going around curve squeal Locomotive horn Typical Home theatres Rock concert speakers  110 80 Near a jet engine 120 90 THX Home Theatre peaks Pain threshold  Cannon explosion 140 110
  9. 9. Sound & Noise: in BASIC termsSound and noise consist of: Loudness [volume of dB’s] Frequency [high=alarm system; or low=base]And can be controlled through: Absorbing [use finishes] Blocking [use mass and space]
  10. 10. Two main types of NOISE CONTROLSound BLOCKING: stopping sound from getting to theother room There are new ways of improving your results!Sound ABSORPTION: reducing the “pitch” or reflectioninside a room
  11. 11. INTERESTING Sound Facts Sound is airborne acoustic energy. Although energy never disappears, by modifying its form you can manage it. With its visco elastic polymers, engineered sound proofing drywall does just that - by converting acoustic energy into heat. And you can’t hear heat!
  12. 12. That’s RIGHT!
  13. 13. But what is the REAL difference?Actual FeelsChange Like2 dB Not noticeable3 dB 19% quieter: barely noticeable6 dB 34% quieter: noticeable no impact10 dB 50% quieter: clear difference; not enough15-20 dB 75-87% quieter: huge difference
  14. 14. So what ‘s the PLAN next time?Next time you have a NOISE-related issue: Don’t add extra layers of drywall to the wall Don’t tear down the wall to rebuild it Don’t moving away [to another problem?] Don’t kill someone [jail is noisy as well] Don’t kill yourself [peace at last but enjoyable?… think not] And don’t ignore the problem [typical answer] Just simply think Quiet...
