    Anyone used These things before and do they make a worthwhile difference to soundproofing?


    Would you also soundproofing between the joists also for extra effect or is that an unecessary expense?

    Funny I was looking at some new properties a local builder has just done.

    Halfway through the build the BCO wanted improved soundproofing as they had done tests on the first few houses and they thought the soundproofing was borderline.

    The builder installed these bars ( or something similar)on the other properties - amazingly they were even worse for soundproofing - although BCO did pass them they were both surprised at the poor test results.

    I suspect there is a lot more to soundproofing than just fitting some bars...

    alot of sound proofing is good construction. If you make sure all gaps are filled ans when insulating make sure it is 100% filled and cut in well. And dont just cut sockets in without maintaining the soundproofing behind them. Remeber to leave a gap al the way around the pboard and fill with acoustic sealant
