Soundproofing Floors with PhoneStar

The PhoneStar sound attenuation board provides excellent floor soundproofing for both timber and concrete floors. It can be used in various types of projects, including new builds, conversions, refurbishments or remedial situations. The PhoneStar boards are 15mm thick and are simply laid floating over the floorboards or concrete floor. This helps reduce airborne sound such as talking, TV noise, and music, as well as impact sound such as footstep noise or items dropping on the floor above. Additionally, there are further improvements that can be made on the ceiling side of the floor structure to enhance the soundproofing results.

PhoneStar also has great thermal mass properties, which means it can store heat and gradually release it throughout the day and night, resulting in a more consistent temperature in the building. Apart from its soundproofing benefits, PhoneStar acoustic insulation is made entirely from natural materials, offering additional health and well-being advantages. It is environmentally friendly and allows moisture and condensation to pass through without causing damage. This product is CE-marked and has undergone rigorous testing for both acoustic performance and structural capabilities, making it suitable for soundproofing floor projects.

Flanking Noise

All acoustic floors and ceilings are susceptible to Flanking Noise through flanking walls, especially lightweight block walls. These walls may or may not require treatment with PhoneStar acoustic insulation. For wall treatments, please refer to the section on Soundproofing Walls. Flanking noise may not always be noticeable, but it’s important to be aware of it. Also, please note that when soundproofing floors, eliminating certain structural noises (e.g. doors banging downstairs) can be challenging because the entire building structure is vibrating, not just the separating floor. The best solution for this is to use foam strips around the inner door frame.
