Sound insulation for the wall - when the neighbor is too loud

Many people know it: Thin walls like made of paper, through which every noise booms as loudly as if it came from your own apartment. Whether it's movement in the stairwell, conversations in the neighboring apartment, or even a musical instrument blaring into yours from a surrounding apartment - all of this can disrupt your concentration as well as simply interrupt your relaxation within your own four walls. Continuous noise can even cause sleep deprivation. Generally, however, such a situation hits the mind, causes stress and prevents the much-needed peace and quiet in your private life. The solution: effective sound insulation on the wall facing the neighbor, the stairwell or, of course, the outside to reduce street noise with the help of our SilentFiber sound insulation panels. And the best part is that you can easily install the sustainable hemp panels yourself. Simply glue them to the wall and cover them with heavy plasterboard, for example. This is how they "cushion" the sound.

To buy the hemp panels in a bundle for 129.90 euros each. Per bundle you get ten panels (60 x 80 centimeters). To make the sound insulation on your wall as uncomplicated as possible, we also have the right installation tool for you on offer.

Step by step installation instructions of the sound insulation panel

Especially in large houses with many parties, there is always something going on. If the insulation is poor, you will hear more from your neighbors than you would like. Even within your own four walls, the background noise caused by your housemates can quickly become a stress factor. Both often lead to sleepless nights or regularly recurring interruptions of restful sleep. But not only that, relaxing in the evening or concentrated work in the home office is almost impossible due to noise pollution. Overall, poor sound insulation reduces the feel-good atmosphere as well as the quality of life in one's own home. Disturbing noises can also become a burden for children, because the background noise is a distraction during schoolwork. A particular burden arises for people who work in shifts. At recurring intervals or even permanently, they are dependent on sleeping during the day and recovering for the coming night shift. Regardless of which situation of this applies to you, this constant stress can have significant health consequences. Did you know that frequent lack of sleep can raise blood sugar and weaken the immune system? The cardiovascular system can also be damaged by constant noise.

Therefore, invest in good sound insulation - our solutions for soundproofing a wall are available at fair prices and, if desired, with suitable installation materials.

What makes hemp so special in sound insulation?

You wonder why the natural product hemp, of all things, should be such a fantastic solution for sound insulation on your wall? Sound insulation only works if the sound waves created cannot propagate undisturbed through a room. This means that the reverberation from a sound source must be attenuated. This can be achieved with materials installed in or on the wall, which absorb the waves and thus cushion the resulting noise. One of these materials can be hemp. This is because these natural fibers contain a large number of small cavities in which the sound energy is refracted and thanks to which the sound insulation of the wall - to the neighbor or to the outside - reduces noise.

Advantages of hemp panels for sound insulation on the wall

There are many factors in favor of soundproofing your wall with the help of our hemp panels:

  • The effect of noise reduction is clearly perceptible.
  • They contribute to thermal insulation and can help save heating costs - a topic that could hardly be more topical right now.
  • The panels for sound insulation - for example, on the wall to the neighbor - can be easily and quickly installed even by laymen.
  • They can be easily installed both in new construction and as part of a renovation.
  • Hemp panels are an ecological, sustainable product, as the hemp straw used is a waste product of the hemp industry. We produce regionally and emission-free in Austria. With our panels for soundproofing your wall, you are not only doing something good for your ears, but also for the environment.

Frequently asked questions

No, this will not achieve the desired effect. In sound engineering, we distinguish between ACOUSTIC PANELS and SOUND PROTECTION PANELS. Acoustic panels "only" reduce the echo within a room. This means that they improve the acoustics inside a room, rather than isolating it from outside noise. For real and effective soundproofing, you need to install our hemp soundproofing panels on the wall facing the neighbor or the street.
Depending on the structure and substrate, an improvement of 5-10 decibels can be achieved. That doesn't sound like much of an effect to you? An improvement of 10 decibels corresponds to a reduction of the perceived volume by 50 percent - you hear your neighbor only half as loud - that already sounds much better, doesn't it?
If you want to use sound insulation to make the wall facing the neighbor more soundproof, thus reducing the noise level in your apartment, the only option is to install the panels on exactly this wall facing the other apartment. If, on the other hand, you want to soundproof certain rooms in your own home, the wall side does not matter. As a small tip from practice: choose the room with the fewest wires in the wall. This will make installation the quickest and easiest.
The plasterboard you use for sealing our hemp boards should be as heavy as possible and is normally available in DIY stores. Knauf Silentboard or Knauf Diamant are particularly suitable in combination with the SilentFiber sound insulation boards.
Essentially, you only need to make sure that the boards with which you clad our sound insulation are heavy or have a high density - so OSB boards are also suitable. You can even enhance them afterwards with wood facing or other materials visible in the room.

In such cases, it is a good idea to attach the sound insulation panels to the wall using a tile adhesive or a facade adhesive to achieve suitable sound insulation. To do this, apply a thin layer of the adhesive to both the panel and the wall before carefully pressing on the sound insulation. The mineral adhesive must dry for 2-3 days before you can glue the plasterboard.

Assembly instructions

In principle, the type of substrate of your wall to be insulated is unimportant for the installation of our panels, but they are the easiest to attach to flat walls. Even without previous craftsmanship and certain tools, their installation is in the highest degree uncomplicated. Your project "soundproofing of the wall" can therefore be implemented quickly and easily. Possible substrates for our sound insulation panels can be, for example, brick, wood chip masonry, concrete, solid wood/CLT (cross laminated timber), wooden studs and drywall. Depending on the type of substrate you have, we recommend the following aids for even easier application:

- Brick and wood chip mantle block: Flex tile adhesive
- Concrete and drywall: "Hemp Quick & Easy" special adhesive
- Wood substrate: hemp screws

Then you have the option to choose different surfaces, which will be applied over the hemp soundproof panels: For example, plasterboard, gypsum fiberboard, clay building panels and decorative plaster. Thus, you are free to choose what best complements, contrasts or rounds off your interior style.
