Soundproofing is any means of reducing the sound pressure with respect to a specified sound source and receptor. There are several basic approaches to reducing sound: increasing the distance between source and receiver, using noise barriers to reflect or absorb the energy of the sound waves, using damping structures such as sound baffles.
First Step: Isolating the ceiling or walls. The GenieClip RST, LB, LB3 is engineered for superior acoustical performance in reducing the transmission of airborne and impact sound through wall and floor/ceiling assemblies.
Second Step: Dampen the ceiling or walls. Like cracks in armor, the best soundproofing strategy will fail if there are cracks and other gaps in a wall, floor or ceiling that are left uncovered.
Third Step: Adding weight, and thickness to the system lessens the amount of sound traveling through the system, thus reducing the ambient noise level outside.
