    zoundblock for soundproofing?

    This stuff is made by siam cement and we are thinking of using it in conjunction with a stud wall to try and cut the noise from next door in the bedroom. Think you can get it at Home Mart etc but wondered if anyone has used it or if there is something more effective

    I've seen this used in Thailand



    Seriously.

    I don't know how effective they were. Cheap though, so long as you like eggs.

    Actually it's pretty effective in reducing the resonance to less than 1sec.

    It works excellently. Not pretty though

    Blackmarket Records in London used to have a small room selling tunes in their basement. Walk down the stairs and the volume was incredible. Ground floor - couldn't hear a thing. All thanks to egg boxes.

    Yep, it isn't the most pretty material to use but it's cheap and effective.

    To get a good sound proof structure you need materials to block both the high and low frequency sound, effectively meaning you need light materials (insulation) for high frequency and heavy materials (for example concrete) for low frequency.

    For temperature insulation yes, but not for sound insulation.

    Actually it's vailable for sound insulation, it just depends on the frequency of the sound.

    What frequencies do rock wool insulate against?

    Treble rather than bass I'd assume?

    Rock wool is very good for sound insulation , I have built loads of timber framed houses and we use it in party walls along with 4 layers of plasterboard and it works fine .

    Materials such as Rockwool would be used to insulate against high frequency sound. Materials that can vibrate easily are good to insulate these higher frequencies.

    Usually high frequency sound is not the issue for people, but the low frequency (deep low bass) is the problem. One of the ways to counter that is using heavy materials such as concrete.



    Where do you keep all the eggs?
    You can offer them to some Hindu god or spirit? Of you can ask your wife to make a lot of "Thai pa-lo" food
