If you are upgrading your ceiling with beautiful and affordable metal ceiling tiles, good for you! You probably already know that tin ceiling tiles are a great-looking way to decorate your ceiling. While you’re upgrading, though, you may wish to consider other improvements you could make. If your ceiling is a drop ceiling or if you are using deep drop tiles, soundproofing insulation is something you surely will wish to consider. For example, Metal Ceiling Express offers a 3/8” SuperSoundproofing Thermal Insulator at a great price. But why invest in soundproofing technology for your project in the first place?
1. Reduce Upstairs Traffic Noise
Whether you have some upstairs neighbors with a heavy tread, or whether your kids are constantly running around on the floor above, many people know what it’s like to hear that constant noise coming down through the ceiling. Metal Ceiling Express’s soundproofing insulator reduces that noise by a great deal, providing that extra layer of vibration resistance needed to muffle even the heaviest footfall. In your home, it can bring an added peace of mind and a level of tranquility to a room. If you are rehabbing a rental property, the quiet can be a great selling point to a potential renter.
2. Dampen Sound From Within
Sound travels both ways, and soundproofing a ceiling not only keeps unwanted noise from upstairs muffled, but keeps the room sounds from getting out, as well. If you are a quiet, studious type, this might not be too important, but if your room tends to get noisy you might be thankful knowing that the noise is being contained. Utilizing the four principles of good soundproofing – decoupling, absorption, mass, and damping – Metal Ceiling Express’s insulation ensures that the noise belonging outside is kept outside, and that which belongs inside is kept in. You may not be able to bring your rock band in for a practice without disturbing someone, but the levels are noticeable.
3. Muffle Reverb
An especially salient point in a larger room, or a room with tile or hardwood floors, or any type of room that lends itself to loud reverb – soundproofing your metal ceiling tiles will go a surprisingly long way toward reducing the reverb levels. If you have ever been in a high school cafeteria, you probably know the importance of reverb dampening.
