In the world of acoustics and soundproofing, specialists play a vital role.
Coming in during the last stages of construction or renovation, you bring your acoustical expertise to address a specific challenge or to generally reduce noise in a defined space. Often the problem is, that space is essentially a finished room or building. The walls are framed, the floors are in place, and most of the heavy lifting is done - this is the point at which the specialist is expected to advise on what soundproofing products a contractor should use.
You know that's not the way to get the best results. If you're brought in to soundproof a room that's essentially already built, you're very limited in what you can achieve. You need to get in front of the contractors – and ideally the architects – from the very beginning, so that you can recommend a solution from a wider breadth of soundproofing options and end up with a far better end result.
As a specialist in acoustics, you're most likely familiar with the Green Glue name. Understanding how the Green Glue products work as a complete system, though, will enable you to work through and offer solutions to a wider range of problems that contractors face in construction and renovation.
Green Glue's Noiseproofing System consists of four components: Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound, Clips, Sealant, and Joist Tape. When these technologies are incorporated systematically into a new building or home design, they substantially reduce noise transmission between rooms, improving quality of life along with property values.
