    Acoustic stud wall

    A sound-insulating stud wall is an additional wall added to an existing wall to reduce sound transmission. This solution helps to reduce noise from neighbours such as conversations, TV noise, etc., on the other side of a wall.

    What is an acoustic stud wall?

    An acoustic stud wall is an additional wall added to an existing wall with the aim of reducing sound transmission. These claddings are typically installed on the inside of an existing wall and are designed with materials that absorb, isolate, or block sound.

    The main function of an acoustic stud wall is to reduce noise pollution. This can be noise from outside, such as traffic, neighbours or industrial noise, or sound from adjacent rooms, such as conversations, music or TV noise. By adding an extra layer of insulation between the existing wall and the acoustic studd wall, sound transmission is reduced and a quieter and more comfortable environment can be created.

    Such a wall solution not only has acoustic properties but also serves as thermal insulation. Especially in older houses or with thin partition walls, such as plasterboard walls, this type of wall is often used.

    In general, adding a soundproofing stud wall to an existing wall can significantly help reduce noise pollution and create a more comfortable and peaceful living environment.

    Sound insulation value of an acoustic stud wall

    The sound insulation value of an acoustic stud wall partly depends on the sound insulation value of the existing wall. This value can reach an Rw of 41-44dB, which stands for weighted airborne sound insulation. This indicates how much sound in decibels is blocked. With sound insulation from 40dB, a normal conversation is barely audible, and a conversation with raised voices is not easily understandable.

    Thermal insulation stud wall

    In addition to sound insulation, a stud wall can also serve as thermal insulation. By adding insulation material between the existing wall and the stud wall, heat loss can be reduced, and the energy efficiency of a building can be improved.

    Acoustic insulation for a stud wall

    If you want to build a wall yourself using battens, cavity insulation, and plasterboard, it is important to mount the battens without contact. This can be done using vibration isolation strips, such as EASYbond or Cyclin edge strips.

    We also offer various materials that are suitable for cavity insulation, which are placed between the studs. For the insulation of insulation walls, you can, for example, choose Cyclin Puur, EASYpol polyester wool, and Ecosorb.

    These materials are sustainable and offer excellent alternatives to the well-known glass wool and stone wool panels.
