Adding thick layers to reduce noise

The first step in soundproofing a room is simply to add material between the source of the noise and the outside. The idea will be to muffle the noise by adding mass to the walls.

Sound insulation foam is therefore ideal for reducing noise pollution by absorbing noise. In this register, Serenata has developed AcouPlast ® , a polyethylene sound absorber with open cells. This soundproofing foam will add thickness to your partitions to absorb noise, while resistant to water and humidity.
