GREEN GLUE for sound reduction and noise control.

VISCO-ELASTIC GREEN GLUE ADHESIVE REVOLUTIONIZES SOUNDPROOFING!

Our green glue vs that other runny thin stuff!  (Better called “Green Glop!”.)

While it’s not a soundproofing paint, it’s even better!  (Yes, we Do have a soundproofing paint)!

Big 29 OZ tubes of Green glue make it easy to use

We were the first Western Region distributors for GREEN GLUE! We stock massive quantities of it and sell it in odd lots (Tubes) so you don’t have to buy more than you need!

For existing walls, just apply Green Glue to some new sheets of drywall and stick it up on the wall, fasten in a few places, tape off and paint or wallpaper! For bare studding or ceiling joists, for double drywalling, use MLV.  Apply padding tape to the studs before hanging the sheets for even more enhanced sound control! Easy to use, for small jobs it comes in caulk-type 29 oz. tubes or in buckets for large jobs.  A case of 12 covers about 190 Sq. Ft.  (A wall 24′ long and 8′ high).  Dollar for dollar delivered, the best value in soundproofing products!

Priced too low to show here!  Call for best price.

The Ultimate in a Sound Damping Coating!Almost like a soundproofing sound deadening paint!  (See the Video!)

Use this acoustic treatment to block and dampen sound!

Super Soundproofing Co™, (San Marcos, Ca.) master distributors, is introducing Noxudol 3101, a patented water-based soundproofing sound insulation and deadening compound. Along with being water-based, it absorbs noise and vibration, is sprayable, nontoxic, dries hard. It works really well for damping resonance in aluminum, steel, fiberglass and poly-glass. It is nonabrasive, anti-corrosive, protects against condensation and is ideal for automotive, industrial and railway applications.  Plus – the flame-retardant properties are awesome!

While not a sound proofing paint, it’s pretty close!  (It’s thicker, but can be sprayed). For sound barrier, use MLV.

Sound deadening with Noxudol 3101Reference object – Djupviks ShipyardBefore: Usually, they glued 1,5 mm aluminium plate with 1 mm glue on the inside of the hull. This required 1 working hour per sqm. All the aluminium plates had to be cut to the exactly right size. The weight per sqm was 5 kg.Today: All vertical places, which need sound damping, included the frame ribs, are treated with Noxudol 3101. Up to 5 kg/sqm can be applied without exceeding the cost for the material of the old system. However, Noxudol 3100€™s unique sound damping properties and the possibility to treat 100 % of all vertical surfaces and frame ribs, reduce the requirement of material to about 2 kg/sqm (about 3 litre/sqm wet material). They apply up to 3 kg/sqm on surfaces where extra sound damping is required.

Result:
– Less working hour to sound damping one sqm. Up to 80% reduction.
– Reduced material cost.
– Less weight. Up to 50% reduction.
– Environmentally harmless product.
– Contains no solvent or other dangerous materials.
– Better sound damping results.

Certifications
– Lloyd Certificate of Fire Approval
– Bureau Veritas Certificate of Type Approval
– Smoke generation 3101 ISO 5659-2 (1994)
– Spread of flame 3101 IMO Resolution A.653(16)
– Noxudol 3101 F1 Class
– Noxudol 3101 M1 Class
– DIN 54837 Adtranz Nox 3100
– Burning rate 3100 Volvo STD 5031,1
Notes on application:  To obtain proper results of sound deadening, the material needs to be built up on the surface it is applied to, with a number of coats, drying somewhat between coats, (It dries quickly),  increasing the thickness to 3/16th to 1/4″.  It can be sprayed with our special sound control spraygun!Not available in spray cans.It will dry hard and firm with a beige color.

How to use Soundproofing Paint!

Use for autobody sound control and undercoating.  Pickup bed coating!  Computer side panels. Reduce noise in washing machines or dryers by painting the back sides.  Soundproofing built-in light or recessed  fixtures.

Noxudol 999:   Aircraft firewalls and engine mounts! (See this Video!  It increases the resistance to fire of in-flight conditions). Paint your plywood shear walls.

GET INFO ON INTERIOR WINDOWS!

Interior windows are fitted to the inside frame of your existing windows and held in place with magnets, providing excellent sound reduction.  Please give us some info on how to contact you about how the windows are fitted and to discuss your needs.  Indicate if you feel competent to measure them and install them or need someone to come out and do it. It’s best to have one of our experts call you.  (We pay for the call that way!).

Making Clear Interior Windows for SOUNDPROOFING


PRINTED VERSION

Low-cost Interior (Secondary) Windows for Soundproofing and reducing sound passing through existing windows.

 

For maximum sound reduction, the plastic acrylic panels should be thick and heavy, at least 1/4″ thick.  They should be readily removable.  They should not yellow from UV (Ultra Violet) sun rays over time.  They should be relatively inexpensive to buy and make.  They must fit well to eliminate sound leaks.

To overcome these and other shortcomings and still be able to have a reasonably cost effective product, we introduce:

MAGNETSEAL FRAMING for acrylic panels..

Start by taking your window measurements top, bottom and sides – for the plastic panel you need. (Which you can obtain locally from any plastics outlet.  (Look in the Yellow Pages under Plastic Suppliers). Have them cut your plastic 1/4″ or 3/8″ thick panel to size.  You need to decide whether to fit the flat sheet inside the edge frame of your window or over the face of the frame.  We recommend fitting over the entire wall opening because it will give a little more dead air space, which is what makes these types of windows work so well. Fitting to the inside opening may be more difficult than you imagine, especially if the opening is not square.  Only an inch or so oversize  of the opening is needed.

Take your acrylic edge measurements and add them together to order enough steel “Mounting Frame” and our special “peel off adhesive backed” 1″ wide Magnetic Tape for the job.  To install a 1/4″ or 3/8″ acrylic (Plexiglas) panel in your window you will need 4 “L” shaped metal trim pieces and enough magnetic tape for attachment to around the edges of your acrylic panels.  The  trim and the tape are sold by the foot, so you only have to buy what you need.

Window Magnet Seal

To install your window: Flush or Recessed?

Apply tape tape strips all around the acrylic edges as shown.

Attach the “L” shaped metal mounting trim to the window frame edges using screws, double sided tape or adhesive – if the new window is wider and taller and to be mounted over the face of the  opening, attach the trim angle over and around, covering the entire frame opening.

*

If Recessed, (This is harder to do) attach with the one leg of the “L” facing toward the existing window, just recessed enough for the new plastic panel to be  flush with the opening frame as shown.

 

Magna-Seal Magna-Seal Window

Tips:

  • Make sure the magnetic tape does not have any gaps in the butt edges where it mates with other strips of tape at the corners.  These gaps will leak sound.
  • See that your “L” shaped trim is flat and square (not twisted or distorted) with the magnetic tape for maximum attachment strength.  Caulk the corners if there is any gap. The “L” trim goes around the entire perimeter of the window frame, not just in the corners as is shown for clarity in the drawings. If your windows has a “sill” to support the new window pane, you’ll not need tape and “L” channet for the bottom edge.  If no sill a few pane support screws should be added to prevent the pane from sliding down.
  • If there are any gaps that could leak sound, fill with caulk.
  • To quickly remove a flush window, use a bit of sticky tape.

Notes: If you desire a window that will not yellow or pass UV in the very long term, ask for Museum grade acrylic.  It will not yellow or pass UV for 20 years or more.  (Regular acrylic will last 7- 10 or more years, depending on climate and UV present).  Another of the advantages of using acrylic is that you can get it with tinting!

It’s best not to use polycarbonate or Lexan because it’s unbreakable and may delay in an emergency.

Tips on your existing windows: They must not pass any air through any gaps or crevices. Caulk or otherwise seal them off.  If need be, use some of our black foam, closed cell tape to make a gasket where they close.

If you have steel frames, (not aluminum!), you can use the magnetic tape without buying our metal framing stock. The plastic sheet will have to fit over and on the face on your frame.  If you want to mount this way, you don’t need the “L” frame, just use the magnetic tape, but you may not have much  essential air space.

You’ll need the small screws we supply to attach the L” shaped metal mounting frame, use the sheet metal type to attach to a metal frame (You’ll need to drill small pilot holes), and the supplied wood screws if PVC or wood.  Construction adhesive can also be used.  Double sided tape could be used with a small window, depending on the durability of the tape.  Do not attach the “L”  with the screws on the face where the plastic sheet goes!

* Why not just use glass?  Of course glass can be used and may even be cheaper.  But consider this:

The chance of breakage is far greater when installing and especially when removing the panes from the frame for cleaning, etc.  For this reason, use safety glass as it has a plastic center/filler which reduces (but doesn’t eliminate) the hazard of shatter and splinter effect if broken.  If it falls out and breaks, it will be finished – not like plastic. 

* IMPORTANT:  Keep the heat build-up in mind in the windows airspace that might occur if the window is facing the sun- your blinds, curtain, etc may get fried if they are inside the enclosure.  Window tint on the existing window might be in order if that could be an issue.

VERSATILE SOUNDPROOFING SOUNDCLIP For MOUNTING DRYWALL


NEW! SOUND ISOLATION  DRYWALL CLIP AERO-SUPPORT (AS-1) Drywall mounting hardware reduces wall “build-out”.

Resiliently mounted wall Gypsum board (Drywall/ Sheetrock/ Wallboard) is now a industry standard for  reducing   sound transfer between walls in rooms.  The AS-1 Sound Isolation Mounting Clip (SIMC) is used with Furring Channel (DWFC) in order to mount these drywall panels.  This clip has several molded neoprene grommets that provides high sound insulation between the panel and the framing.  Slots and holes in the flanges can mount the DWFC in a variety of positions, eliminating the need for costly special brackets or time consuming furring-out blocks.

Shown Installed on a stud or joist.

SSP Aero Support Clip (AS-1)

Mounting Horizonally

Shown mounting horizontally or vertically as needed. SSP Aero Support Clip (AS-1)

For existing wallboard, a slot is cut to insert the unused leg then mounted &  fastened over the stud. Call us to discuss what to do about the “Resonant Chamber” created.

 

 

Build out of the clip/channel assembly can be less than 1/4″ over the face of the DWFC past the framing member.   (see below) or built out even more as desired to straighten uneven framing.

MLV may be  placed over clips with sound isolation tape installed.

The rubber mounting grommets used are unique “Pull-Down” units designed to lock the clip in place by compressing the rubber.  Depending on the application, not all three grommets are needed.

It mounts with  drywall screws (or other fasteners appropriate to the material to which it’s mounted), providing a low-profile sound control system that is low-cost and simple to implement.

One mount is used for every four to eight sq. ft. of wallboard area.  A typical 8′ wall  would have AS-1 clips  mounted to the studs in three horizontal rows  with fasteners, one row a few inches from the top and another few inches from the bottom and another in the middle.     2″  Neoprene 3/8″ thick  Vibration pads are spaced every 2′ on the floor to support the edge of the new drywall panels.  The drywall panels are then attached to the DWFC  vertically with drywall screws in the normal manner.  A gap must be provided where the walls meet the ceiling and other walls and sealed with a full load of acoustical caulk. Since the full weight of the drywall is not hanging from the DWFC, but is simply balanced there, (supported by the Neoprene pads),  the loading on the clips rubber mountings is much less, improving the sound reduction dramatically.

The gap at the floor is sealed either with lots of caulk and/or with  “Backer Square” to reduce the amount of caulk needed to seal the gap left by the vibration pad.  Adding one layer of 5/8″ Fire Code Drywall in this manner will double or triple the sound reduction of the existing wall.  More sound reduction would be obtained by adding more sound control elements into the project.  (Green Glue, etc).

These clips can be used to add a floating wall to a  wall where the existing drywall needn’t be removed.

Ceilings would be  similar to the above. However, due the fact we have not completed testing on the load handling capabilities of the clips, we don’t recommend using them for hanging ceilings at this time.

How to select a soundproofing supplier

How to select soundproofing suppliers!

When we put up this website in 1998, we were the only company specializing in sound control materials, even though there were several companies selling professional sound studio acoustical materials.

These established companies, observing our success over the years, began adding sound control sections to their websites to take advantage of the growing awareness of noise pollution by homeowners and the general public.  They began to actually talk sound control with customers, breaking their long standing rules of only dealing with noise control professionals.  Unfortunately, much of the info they give is couched in specialized, engineering terms and may not be very practical in the field. Do you really care about “Sabins”, “NRC” and “IIC” terms?

Recently, there has been a explosion of companies wishing to “cash in” on the soundproofing phenomenon and have studied ours and other websites and now try to “talk the talk” by selling the same or similar materials.  Some have even copied the information from our website virtually word-for-word!  (Even with our spelling errors!).

Because they have very little in the way of costly overhead, (working from apartments, garages or cheap offices), they try to sell product for a few pennies cheaper than established reliable companies.  This article is to help the user try to differentiate between their hype and the real tested resources of practical sound control advisors and reliable suppliers.

Points to consider before buying sound control materials from ANYONE! (This applies to dealing with contractors, too!)

  • Are they established and reliable?  (Or just out for a quick profit?) You can tell if they don’t answer their “Office”  phone and ask you to leave a call-back number.
  • Do they just simply agree with your plan or idea and not offer constructive alternatives or criticism to make sure you get the proper materials and install it correctly?
  • Will they just sell you whatever kind of material you want without any kind of comment as to whether it will do the job?
  • Are their “Technical Experts” commission salesmen?
  • Do they hype their material, offering glowing testimonials?
  • Do they offer to guarantee results, but have onerous return policies? (Tell you anything to make the sale).
  • Do they actually STOCK material or are they just “Drop Shippers”?
  • Are they a VERIFIED member of the Better Business Bureau?  (BBS symbols must be clickable).
  • Do they have a outstanding privacy policy?  (Some don’t even have one or a “canned” one forced on them by a web hosting service! Or don’t even know what it means!) Is it hidden? Is the type big enough to read?  Does it actually offer privacy?
  • Do they have phony “Trust” and “Award” emblems on their site that do not work for verification?  (Not clickable, or send you around their own site).
  • Do they wildly extol their own wonderful virtues of integrity and conscientiousness to allay your fears? (To make a sale, they’ll even tell you they are devout Christians and call you “Brother”!)
  • Do they give themselves impressive meaningless titles, such as “Soundproofing Director” or “Sound Conditioning Expert”?
  • Do they make ridiculous claims as to their qualifications?  (One of our former employees was asked some questions about sound control by a newspaper, who then mentioned our company and his name in a general article.  He quit and started his own business around the corner from us in competition with us, calling himself the “Doctor of Soundproofing, ADVISOR to the New York Times”! (And several other newspapers who carried the article about us).
  • Do they knock their competitors with sincere sounding criticism of them or their products “for the protection of the public”?
  • Do they offer products with characteristics that cannot meet specifications?  (For instance: “Rubber Expanded Foam”- FAA Approved for Aircraft). Or “Closed Cell Foam” (Just cheap ineffective neoprene).
  • Do they offer cheap products that sound and seem the same as other sound control products but are not?  (Neoprene: “Same as mass loaded vinyl”).
  • Do they offer products with low quoted prices on the site, but wildly differ when the order  is placed?
  • Do they hit you with exorbitant shipping and handling charges?
  • Do they offer low prices and then hit you with a “Order Processing Fee”?  (This fee is proportional to how bad you want it!).
  • Do they try to add a charge for using a credit card instead of a money order?  Or give you a discount for cash. because they can’t qualify for a credit card merchant account and thusly a shopping cart?  (Or use some other persons merchants account).
  • Will they  give you specifications of  their products and the Materials Safety Data sheets (MSDS)?
  • Will they sell you flammable packing material or mattress foam as acoustic products?
  • Do they give you copies of their own approvals and lab burn tests? Or “Computer Generated”?  (Or fake copies of ours?)
  • Do they meet shipping deadlines or do you have to keep calling?
  • Will they cheerfully accept back your unused product for credit?
  • Will you have to worry that you’ll not even receive your order, nor your money back?  (Or the correct materials for the job).
  • If you have problems will they help you or your installer or just blow you off?
  • Will you have to contact us after buying from them to find out where you went wrong?

We offer free, informed, practical and impartial advice.  While some people have taken our time, information and detailed instructions and shopped elsewhere for materials, they are in the minority.  (Probably it was these competitors calling us for help!  We are the ones they turn to!)

If you like what we do and the way we do it, please patronize us and become one of our many loyal customers!  (You won’t be sorry!)

Some would say you’d have to be nuts to deal with anyone but us!

Dealing with someone else?  Make sure you haven’t been “Doctored”!  Call us for a second opinion!

Careful attention to certain details (not mentioned on the site), could mean the difference between success and failure of your sound reduction project!  (You’ll get these vital details when you become our customer!)

If you find a lower price somewhere else- Beware! There’s a reason!

Tip! Check their Delivered Price!

Since we ship in large volume, we get a far better shipping rate from our freight companies than others and pass that along to you!

We can ship from our bonded warehouses near you, saving you big money!

Beware of this offer: “XXXX stocks the largest selection of products in strategic locations across the country. You benefit from lower shipping costs knowing we will source your order from the best location possible”.

Ear Muffs & Headsets for Noise Reduction and even for Sleeping.

Sound Blocking EAR MUFFS, HEADSETS & SOUNDPROOFING HEARING PROTECTION

While noise keeping you awake may seem to be a simple problem, the solutions are not simple!

Sleeping with headsets? You bet! Want to block traffic noise or reduce your partners snoring?  

Sound Blocking Totally Guaranteed!

Need help getting to sleep, or sleeping?

Some of this may be hard to believe:

Why don’t earplugs alone work well?  Earplugs don’t cover the mastoid bone behind your ear as well as headsets do.  That’s also why “Lightweight” or cheap smaller headsets don’t work well.  We’ve been asked: “What if I wear both”?  The answer is that while there will be some improvement over headsets alone, it will not be very great, but really well worth it.  We give you a free set of earplugs with each headset and you can get more from your local drugstore, if need be.

Most of these professional units we sell have a special liquid ear seal for maximum noise reduction and are made with premium components for long life.

Fitting Instructions:

  1. Pull the cups outward and position so that the cushions fully enclose the ears and seal tightly against the head.
  2. Adjust the height of each cup equally on both sides while holding headband on crown of head creating a snug and comfortable fit.
  3. Proper Fit:  With ear muffs over both ears while in a noisy environment, place the palms of your hands on both cups and push cushions towards head.  If there is a perceptible difference in the noise level, ear muffs are probably not fitted properly.

The headband will take a set.  If proper fit is not obtained, repeat fitting instructions.  ie:  if they are too tight, spread them out – too loose, compress the headband.

Notice:  Noise reduction is adversely affected by anything that impairs the seal of the ear muff cushions,  like hair, glasses, earpiece cords, etc. Yes, soundblocking headsets (ear muffs),  really work and here’s what we’ve  learned about sleeping with them and some suggestions.

Use the type that’s adjustable, usually the headband that goes around the back of the neck or under the chin is best for sleeping. Then, find a quiet place to put on the headset and stay there a few minutes first to accustom your hearing level to the quiet, otherwise your body may “turn up your ear volume” trying to make up for the unaccustomed quietness.   The bathroom works good for this. Then put on the headset.

Two pillows may be needed to block your head/headset properly when lying in bed. Very soft “malleable” pillows, not rubberery are best. If you can find a “horseshoe” pillow, it may help to position the headset better.

Wearing headsets throughout the night may not work for some people.  Use them to get to get to sleep and pull them off later if they become uncomfortable.  Keep them handy (always put them in the same place to avoid searching in your bed for them!) if you need to put them back on.

TIPS:   If the headset headband is too tight, loosen by spreading out by hand.  If too loose, tighten by clamping head banding together. Make sure your hair doesn’t interfere with the earmuff seal.  If you wish to wear an earpiece to listen to the radio, etc, use a flat cord not a round one so as to not interfere with the seal. Wearing these at night takes some “getting used to”.  Give them the old college try.  If you can make them work (as hundreds here have done), you can save yourself untold aggravation, expense, etc!

We now have reusable earplugs on cords to help in not losing them at night Inquire!

Totally Guaranteed! Because not everyone may be able to use them, we waive our normal 25% restocking charge if you wish return them.  (Shipping not refundable). You’re not stuck!

But Wait!  There’s more: SPECIAL OFFER-  FREE EARPLUGS with EACH HEADSET!

Regular industrial hearing protection ear muffs don’t attenuate the voice range by much- because speech communication is important for safety in industrial conditions.  (Like- “Hey, BOB, WATCH OUT!)  For sleep and ordinary noise reduction, this is a real disadvantage.  Since we can’t modify them, we provide you with special noise reduction pads that fit inside the ear cups to increase the attenuation and widen the speech blocking range and a set of earplugs.

If you decide to return the earmuffs, the sound blocking earplugs are yours to keep.
