My wife and I would hugely recommend Quietco to any potential customer. The standard of workmanship on our apartment in Moreton-in-Marsh was superb, and the sound-proofing really has worked. We had to vacate the apartment for 2 weeks, and thus the whole exercise took much planning, and Quietco and Jim were simply remarkable in their time-keeping, attention to detail, and professionalism. My wife and I have been deeply impressed by this company.
Prof. A Oswald, Moreton-in-Marsh
We would like to stress our total satisfaction with all aspects of your work which has achieved the desired level of soundproofing in our apartment. Your attention to the maintenance of the highest level of cleanliness in all the general access areas within the building was noted and praised by many residents. The whole project progressed smoothly and on plan and the standard of finish to the final plastering rated among the best we have experienced. We would not hesitate to recommend Quietco.

Airborne noise reduction 50% Impact noise reduction 30%
50mm space loss

TPS50C

What it does

Reduces sound such as road traffic noise, TV, conversation and general airborne noise from transmitting up through the ceiling, providing the most cost effective and basic ceiling sound proofing when treating the noise at source.

Soundproofing ceiling with TPS50C

Where it works best

Installed directly to the joists below; it is a great choice for those customers that no longer want to hear the road noise, or those customers with flats with access to the ceiling below or the considerate neighbour that wants privacy by reducing the noise transmitting through the ceilings. To meet current approved Part E of the Building Regulations, this system should be used in conjunction with TPSE. For more commerical ceiling sound proofing see our office soundproofing site.

Airborne noise reduction 65%+
Impact noise reduction 45%

TPS65C

What it does

Reduces sound travelling through the ceiling from the room below using a series of interlocking specialist ceiling sound proofing layers. It has a unique resilient layer installed between the joists for minimal space loss.

Ceiling soundproofing with TPS65C

Where it works best

The TPS65C ceiling sound proofing system is best suited for customer who want the maximum reduction in noise from below with the least amount of ceiling height loss. It is a great choice for those customers with loft conversions, cottages, basement ceilings and flats with wooden joists construction where space loss must be kept to a minimum.

Airborne noise reduction 70%
Impact noise reduction 65%+
85mm space loss

TPS70C

What it does

Reduces sound transmitting through the ceiling from the room below, using a combination of interlocking layers and a unique resilient bar system that offers superior isolation. TPS70C is able to give great impact noise reductions at only 85mm space loss.

Where it works best

The TPS70C ceiling system is best suited for customers with concrete ceilings, steel beams, block and beam or any unique ceiling structures where isolation is important. It is a great choice for customers who are the considerate noise maker, or where high levels of soundproofing are required with a relatively small amount of space. TPS70C will barrier most airborne noises in a residential flat.

TPS80C

What it does

Reduces sound from the floor above travelling through the existing ceiling. The independent ceiling sound proofing frame is isolated from the conflicting ceiling so noise finds it difficult to transmit into the new ceiling.

Where it works best

The TPS80C is best suited for customers who demand a high level of airborne noise improvement through the ceiling and where space loss is less of a concern. It is a great choice for those customers with high ceilings in apartments and flats where there is no access to the floors above.

Recognised by, Rockwool, and the National Federation of Roofing Contractors (NFRC) for its 0% condensation risk assessment the TPS80C is the preferred choice for any soundproof garage conversion, soundproof garden studio or any building with a roof that requires a good level of room soundproofing.

Frequently Asked Questions

A: If you are hearing impact noise such as footsteps and footfall, creaking floorboards, doors slamming, plug sockets and light switches, the soundproofing needs to be treated from above. We need to install a resilient layer between the neighbours floor joists and their floor boards. This means pulling up your neighbours flat floor and installing a floating floor isolated from the structure. Heavy duty underlay from specialist acoustic suppliers installed under the carpet will not solve the problem and more often makes creaking floor boards and similar noises worse. If you are experiencing loud music, TV, conversation, radio, alarm clocks and video games, then we can install a ceiling system such as TPS70C to your ceiling, offering a human perceived noise improvement of 70%. However if your walls are plaster-boarded, these will have to be treated as well in order to get the full integrity out of your ceiling investment.

A: We offer soundproofing for houses that suffer with road noise, this normally involves work to the loft, the window walls and secondary glazing.Upgrading to triple glazing alone will not necessarily do anything especially if the window reveals are plasterboard.

A: This noise can be reduced by 80% with some of our systems. We have a range of floor systems designed to absorb and reflect this kind of noise. Although better to treat the noise at source by treating the ceilings below if possible.

A: Flanking areas are those areas of your property where sound can transmit indirectly or by going around rather than directly through the main conflicting wall or floor.Even if the main conflicting surface has been soundproofed to a high standard, sound can still transmit through the flanking areas.Some flanking paths can be lounder than the direct paths. Examples of flanking areas for a party wall would be: the floor, ceiling, window wall, RSJ entering the party wall, stud walls, chimneys stacks, bay window ceilings.
