Soundproofing & Noise Reduction for Floors

Soundproof Floors

True soundproofing between floors involves incorporating an isolation barrier into the floor design either during original construction or adding it in after. For this type of soundproofing between floors, you need a product like the sound isolation product Peacemaker®. Installed directly on top of flooring joist or between layers of subflooring, Peacemaker Soundproofing Underlayment is designed to isolate or float rigid structures such as floor or floor/ceiling assemblies to separate the source of impact noise from the building structure.
