  • Nightmare with soundproofing

    Hi I have moved into my new property . A victorian semi detached maisonette in Islington London. I have spent the last three nights kept awake by the comings and goings of the neighbours. I did some internet research and the seems to be sooo many solutions out there. I have a bit of space to lose and came across a product called genie clips and wondered if any body had any experience with these. Also there was a rubber stick on mat advertised by a few sites. Any body got any useful suggestions please.

    Hi gowman, I've used the genie clip system in my flat in Brighton and had excellent results. We built a new timber frame away from the wall and then attached the genie clips + the furring strips. We were also advised to add a membrane called Tecsound 50 which seems to really add value to the whole system. Will attach link to the company we used and very helpful they are to.

      Blowing insulation should help you with this. Insulation into the interior spaces of existing walls can make them more soundproof, reducing the amount of noise seeping into a room. genie clips system is also good to go.

        Hi gowman, I see that ronan1 also thinks the genie clips should be good idea and reading more up on them they're saying that like for like comparison with the resilient bar system , the genie clips out perform them by around 7db. I found them a very easy system to put up as well and very solid finish at the end. . This page https://www.soundstop.co.uk/soundpro...-solution2.php. shows a good like for like comparison with the resilient bars. The only fiddly thing was that the metal furring strips were a little narrow.

          Genie clips works well but have you tried any acoustic insulation products, I live in Australia had this one installed to my home it absorbs most of the noise very well
