Whether it’s noisy neighbours down below, the rumble of tube trains underfoot, or machines reverberating in your apartment block, we know that noise pollution can be more than just a nuisance. With our customisable soundproof floor systems we can design a solution to return silence to your home.
Our floor soundproofing systems work by dampening and dissipating sound waves, minimising their impact on your property. We achieve this by using:
Fit either under or on top of your flooring, we choose a specialised acoustic matting depending on your room type and noise disturbance.
By creating a floating floor and employing premium isolating materials, we create cavities across which sound cannot travel.
How to Choose a Floor Soundproofing Solution
As soundproofing experts, we’re here to offer you advice on the best soundproofing system for your floor. Here’s what we will need to know in order to best help you:
- How high can your floor be raised?
- Is your floor surface carpet, laminate, concrete, etc.?
- What is the nature of your noise complaint?
- Do you know the structure underneath your floor?

Along with barking dogs and loud music, noisy neighbours are the biggest source of noise complaints in the UK. The majority of these disturbances are conducted through the air and enter your property through air gaps in the structure of your building, with even the smallest holes greatly increasing the transmission of airborne noise pollution through your floor.
To combat these sorts of complaints we will need to conduct a sound survey to understand the frequency range of the noise source. In most cases the infiltration of airborne noise is due to poor workmanship and insufficient acoustic materials. As such, the solution may be to simply plug the gaps, however, many airborne noise disturbances will flank your floor and travel through gaps in the wall or through the biggest weak point – your windows.
Structure-borne noise disturbances tend to be on the lower end of the frequency range and mostly take the form of thumping from machines, or the rumble of trains or heavy vehicles. Unlike airborne noise disturbances, these sources will reverberate through the materials in your building to enter your property.
Untreated floors can be a good conductor of structure-borne noise complaints. In severe situations we recommend installing floating floors (and, if appropriate, ceilings) to isolate your rooms from the rest of the property and prevent noise transmission.
Remember, soundproofing your home is only as effective as your weakest link. If you’re suffering from noise pollution and are considering soundproofing walls in your property, you may also want to consider:
