QuietStuf Acoustic Insulation

QuietStuf batts are an acoustic insulation designed to significantly reduce noise transfer between walls, ceilings and floors.  Acoustic insulation in your home or work place can help to reduce stress levels and increase your peace of mind.  The products are made from 100% polyester fibre, without the need for any binding agents, resulting in an acoustic product that is durable over time, easy to handle and safe for your health.  As well as providing acoustic insulation, QuietStuf provides excellent thermal insulation, further increasing your comfort levels by either retaining warmth or coolness in your home.

Application
QuietStuf batts should be used in any construction cavity where noise reduction is desired from one side to the other of the cavity.

Where to Use - Examples of areas for sound treatment:

  • Internal Walls    Home Theatre
  • External Walls    Between adjoining bedrooms
  • Ceilings    Laundry
  • Between Floors    Ceilings - Aircraft Noise
  • Between floors in your home (noise transfer from upstairs)
  • External walls to reduce: road noise, mower noise etc

Depending on the wall or construction system QuietStuf batts can decrease noise transfer by up to 8 decibels.  In most cases this will prevent normal television, bathroom or domestic sounds being transmitted through walls.
