Icynene Open Cell Spray Foam The Most Effective Sound Proofing Solution
The Icynene Spray Foam Insulation System is a series of soft, flexible spray foam insulation products that delivers unbeatable sound proofing benefits when compared to other home insulation products.
Icynene is the most efficient and sustainable insulation solution on the market.
Controlling Sound Leakage With Icynene
Sound travels through buildings via the air within the building or the building fabric itself – or sometimes both. People talking in an adjacent room, flat above, outside traffic or loud music being played is sound being carried through the air. If you stop air leakage you reduce the sound transmission through that air.
Icynene has excellent air sealing properties and therefore reduces air borne sound.
Impact noise is different – when a door is slammed or children are running about above you then this sound is transferred through the building fabric itself – this is a much harder problem to solve.
Icynene is used extensively as an acoustic insulation for the construction of home cinemas, music rooms, playrooms and day to day living. Every home now a days likes their own quiet space.
If you are building a new house, consideration should also be given to insulating soil waste pipes to avoid hearing toilets being flushed.
How Effective Has Icynene Been?
In 2016 JSJ was approached by a member of The Scottish Parliament. We were asked to be involved in a pilot scheme to reduce the noise within people’s properties due to airplanes flying above.
Sound testing was professionally carried out before and after we insulated in between the rafters in the roof using 125mm of Icynene’s open cell spray foam.
Subsequent reports showed that the Decibel’s where then reduced by 13db.
This was a fantastic result for the homeowner, who now lives comfortable within her home.
