Acoustic Insulation for NZ Homes
Installing acoustic insulation in your home can absorb as much as 75% of the sound. This helps to soundproof the home or room to acceptable levels. We sell well known brands in such as Knauf Earthwool Glasswool, Bradford Gold and GreenStuf Polyester. Knauf Earthwool Internal Wall (acoustic) insulation segments are available in Basic Performance (11kg/m³), Ultra Performance (14kg/m³) and High Density (18kg/m³, 20kg/m³ and 27kg/m³) sound absorbing performance levels.
Consider underfloor soundproofing as well as internal walls
While many home owners agree that installing insulation in their internal walls is non negotiable, many do not consider the sound that will inevitably travel between floors in a multi storey house. Think long term, especially if your sleeping areas are directly above your living and entertainment areas, and include underfloor soundproofing in your budget.
Difference between thermal and acoustic insulation
Both acoustic and bulk (thermal) insulation have thermal insulation qualities. Acoustic insulation is however much more dense, which gives it more effective soundproofing properties. Acoustic insulation can be used to create quiet zones within your home or to block out the sound of a busy road.
