Sound Issues - Noise proof your walls

Noise Solutions for your Home

If you are building or extending a home or planning a renovation, think carefully about noise control. Gyprock has designed wall and ceiling products and systems that allow you to control noise transfer within your home and block unwanted noise from outside.

With some basic understanding of building acoustics and careful consideration of the room use and layout of your home or extension, you can quiet zones where you need them and keep noise where it belongs.

Unwanted noise can be an issue in any room in a home but these are the more typical situations that need to be considered:

  • Homes under flight paths or near busy roads
  • Between floors of multi-storey homes
  • Home theatres and entertainment rooms
  • Other special purpose rooms with high noise levels
  • Rooms adjoining kitchens, laundries & garages
  • Large open plan areas
  • Rooms with a high level of hard floor coverings
