Once upon a time - not so very long ago - absolute quiet was a concept everyone understood and could even experience daily. Nowadays, noise has become part of our life. We would like to block it, but traffic outside, cars honking, people talking, loud music playing, machines causing vibrations have become an inescapable nuisance.
Don’t take our word for it, but even inside your house, you're always confronted with noise. Take a seat, relax for a moment, and listen. Don't count the sounds which come from outside your house, but concentrate on what else you hear.
Combine all these noises, and you may realise that sound dampening individual rooms of your house may not be such a bad idea.
Luckily, effective sound dampening isn't difficult.
While outside, you may constantly be threatened by ever-increasing noise pollution, at least when you're cosily at home, you can enjoy the blessed silence.
Tip: Acoustic design will achieve its optimum and most cost effective potential when it is considered early in concept or masterplanning stage. The sooner an acoustic engineer is engaged, the higher your chances of avoiding costly retrofit solutions.
