Are you jolted by the sound of neighbors or cohabitants that constantly seem to encroach on your privacy? Or are you a night owl, making noise at times that others do not appreciate? Interior noise can ruin the peace of sleep or your ability to concentrate when working. Whether it’s music, the rumble from a home theater system or conversations that are always a bit too loud, Green Glue Noiseproofing compound is meant to make your space feel more secluded.
You might be as quiet as a mouse, but the world outside is a noisy place. Traffic, a passing jet plane, or the blare from your neighbor’s lawn mower. A lot of the most bothersome noise occurs at low frequencies – the type most difficult to isolate.
Impact noise occurs when an object collides with another object. You usually hear it from the floor above you; examples include a chair sliding across a tile floor, a falling object hitting the floor, or footsteps. Impact noise travels freely through a structure and through air pockets.
Understanding the benefits of noiseproofing is easy when you exist in a place that has properly sound proofed through damping. Put simply, damping is about reducing or eliminating stored energy created by sound. If you put up a wall between two rooms and the wall has no damping, sound in one room will simply pass through the wall and enter the next room as sound. To achieve isolated sound, apply the best damping on the market.
Damping first works by reducing the vibration caused by sound, known as resonance, and then by dissipating this vibration as it travels through a structures. At most frequencies, a wall’s mass offers resistance to airborne sound, and the heavier the wall the more difficult it is for sound to vibrate the wall’s surface. At some frequencies, however, it is difficult to prevent sound from vibrating surfaces. These frequencies are called resonant points.
If a structure has low damping, sound vibration can travel across it for great distances. In fact, poor damping of common building materials like drywall or wood is largely responsible for the noise problems that homeowners experience.
Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound dampens a wall structure by reducing the energy transfer of noise between one room and another. The Compound significantly reduces structure-borne sound and also reduces flanking noise.
In a world where we are constantly distracted and forced to multi-task, it’s no wonder that most of us treat unwanted noise as a form of pollution. Soundproofing is one of the most rewarding investments you can make to improve interior environment. Unwanted noise is everywhere, from footsteps stomping across the floor above, a television blaring in the next room, or traffic whizzing by your house.
By reducing the noise intruding on your life, soundproofing lets you enjoy the benefits of quieter living and reduced fatigue and stress. It also raises the value of your investment. Best of all, soundproofing can be managed on a budget. Using Green Glue is one of the easiest ways to improve your quality of life, while raising your property values.
There is no need to rip out walls or make structural changes to install Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound. The compound can be added on top of existing walls with the addition of a new layer of drywall. Apply the Green Glue to this new drywall and you have added STC rating with minimal effort and expense.
There’s nothing like starting from scratch to design the best soundproofing system for your new home or business. Incorporating a soundproofing strategy at the design stage will maximize effectiveness in your larger plan.

Many home buyers consider a multi-family home a good investment, particularly if they are buying a home for the first time. Recent reports indicate that multi-family homes are on the rise, especially as metro-area sprawl increases as do commute times.
Living in close proximity to others, of course, exposes you to unwanted noise. If good fences make good neighbours, the same holds true for effective soundproofing: the less you hear your neighbours, the better you’ll get along.
Green Glue products offer simple and economical solutions to keep out unwanted noise and improve your quality of life—or your tenants while keeping your neighbours happy.
Ever been to a multiplex theater where you could hear the sounds and booms from the movie playing in the auditorium next to you? That’s a sign of poor soundproofing. The same thing can happen in your home if you don’t use the right materials and designs. Home theater sound systems include powerful subwoofers and high-wattage speakers that create a lot of noise.
Much of this noise occurs at low frequencies, which can be particularly hard to dampen. The Green Glue Company offers soundproofing solutions designed to isolate those low frequencies commonly found with entertainment systems. So, you can turn up the volume on the latest action film without disturbing your family upstairs.
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that 24 percent of the working population works from their home office at least part of the time.

It can also prevent noise from the school auditorium and gymnasium from interrupting the critical learning taking place. Installing the Green Noiseproofing System can be managed cost-effectively to any school building or renovation project.
Soundproofing is an important consideration for any commercial retail and office project. Whether it is a multi-storied office building, a strip mall with individual retail stores, or something in between, the last thing individual businesses want is noisy neighbors.
The Green Glue Noiseproofing System is an easy and cost-effective way to incorporate soundproofing into any commercial project. One layer of Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound between two layers of drywall can markedly reduce noise transmission. There’s no need to add notable amounts of mass to walls for effective noise abatement when you use Green Glue technologies. Using fewer building materials reduces costs and increases the square footage you can use for office and retail space.
Numerous machines, large assemblies and conveyors are humming to the point of a full cacophony of noise creates a detrimental environment for your ability to hear or think.. It’s important to create spaces in the workplace that protect workers from these loud noises so that they work more comfortably and productively.

If you’ve watched a movie recently at your neighbourhood multiplex and heard noises from the theatre next to you, you know all too well that poor soundproofing can ruin a night of entertainment. Modern surround-sound speaker systems are able to blast music and other sounds at high decibels. While this enhances the audience experience, it creates a challenge for designers and architects who need to isolate the noise from an auditorium. Many of these blasting sounds occur at low bass frequencies that are especially hard to contain.
Theatre designers often rely on using heavy mass like concrete and thick THX-certified soundproof drywall to prevent noise transmitting between auditoriums, but sounds can still seep through portals and air pockets in walls, floors and ceilings. Incorporating the Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound’s viscoelastic properties are designed to dampen even low bass frequencies, preventing them from transmitting noise between walls.
Green Glue technologies can make a big difference. They offer renovators and builders an entertaining soundproofing solution, with no added drama. They can be easily integrated into any project with minimal additional labour, time, and cost.
While budgets are tight, numerous government building projects that require superior soundproofing, from court rooms to libraries. For military and homeland security projects in particular, superior noise abatement is critical depending on the application.
The Green Glue Company can offer a solution. Green Glue is designed to be used with common building materials and seamlessly integrate into any room. The Green Glue Noiseproofing System also help achieve LEED Certification by increasing a space’s STC rating. Independent testing data can also be easily furnished to satisfy governmental requirements for audits. Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound has been validated for use in any fire rated assembly according to the International Building Code, and it has been independently tested by Underwriters Laboratories for fire safety and environmental impact.
