Soundproofing Ceilings with PhoneStar

The PhoneStar acoustic insulation board offers excellent ceiling soundproofing for timber joist, CLT and concrete ceilings. It is suitable for various types of projects, including new constructions, conversions, refurbishments and remedial situations. The PhoneStar soundproofing boards are only 15mm thick and are affixed to the underside of timber joists or concrete ceilings. This installation helps reduce airborne sounds such as TV noise, conversations and music, as well as impact sounds such as footsteps or furniture being moved on the floor above.

In addition to its soundproofing benefits, PhoneStar also possesses exceptional thermal mass properties. This means it can absorb and store heat, gradually releasing it throughout the day and night, resulting in a more comfortable temperature within the building. Furthermore, PhoneStar sound insulation is manufactured entirely from natural materials, offering additional health and well-being advantages. In addition, PhoneStar is environmentally friendly and safely allows moisture and condensation to pass through it. This product bears the CE marking and has undergone rigorous testing to ensure its acoustic performance and structural capabilities, making it suitable for soundproofing ceiling projects.

Flanking Noise

All acoustic ceilings and floors are susceptible to Flanking Noise that may transmit through flanking walls, particularly lightweight block walls. Treatment with PhoneStar acoustic insulation may, or may not, be required for these walls. For wall treatments, please refer to the section on Soundproofing Walls. Flanking noise might not always be noticeable, but it is important to be aware of it. Additionally, it is worth noting that eliminating certain structural noises (e.g. doors banging upstairs) can be challenging when soundproofing ceilings, as the vibrations occur throughout the entire building structure, not just the separating floor. Using foam strips around the inner door frame is the recommended solution in order to solve this issue.
