Room to room: Noise-generating media rooms, workshops, laundries, and children’s bedrooms and playrooms; offices and conference rooms.
Outside in: Dogs barking, traffic and industrial noises, trains and airplanes.
Easy to afford SOUNDSTOP® adds great sale/resale value to single and multi-family home owners. Multifamily home owners benefit from SOUNDSTOP® by significantly deadening noise transfer through neighbors’ shared walls and corridors.
Nationally available SOUNDSTOP® achieves STC ratings of 42 and better when installed behind drywall.
SOUNDSTOP® is your earth friendly choice. The 1/2” x 4’ x 8’ or 9’ square edged fiberboard sheets are made of organic materials including hardwood fibers.
Check with code officials in your area. SOUNDSTOP® must be installed behind drywall.
By simply installing SOUNDSTOP® on both sides of a standard wall partition, you are able to achieve Sound Transmission Class Ratings (STC) of 50; that’s 15 points higher than your standard wall partition. Adding an inch of SOUNDSTOP® not only achieves high STC Ratings but will also add to the resale value of a home.
