Sound Proof Insulating Liner is best suited to rooms where you want to absorb the noise within it. For example, noise could be entering the room through an open window, single glazed window or from a source within it (eg; vacuum cleaner). In such cases, internal application of the Sound Proof Insulating Liner will help absorb sound and stop it bouncing around as well as reduce the noise escaping through surfaces into other rooms. In an incidence of noise problems from an adjoining room it can be used to best effect by using it in the room that is generating the noise, not in the room adjacent.
Sound Proof Insulating Liner is a ‘Paste the Wall Product Only’. We recommend the adhesive should be applied with a roller directly on to the wall.
