In order to contain a noise within a space the type and quality of the barriers that surround the space governs the amount of noise emanating from the space.
Traditional plasterboard and studs as well as masonry walls may not be adequate enough to be effective.
In most cases simple adding more plasterboard to stud systems is not cost effective and certainly in the case with masonry walls even less cost effective.
Creating better isolation between components within the wall systems can achieve better more cost effective solutions.
Barrierboard and Soundbreak are products that can create the necessary isolation.
In conjunction with both plasterboard, studs and masonry there are systems developed to improve the noise resistive requirements to meet most applications for both new and existing walls.
