Reduce Noise

How Icynene Spray Foam Insulation Can Help

  • Minimal spaces where sound can travel
  • Great sound-dampening qualities

Whether you just want a little peace and quiet or total soundproofing, insulation needs to address two main kinds of noise – airborne noise and flanking noise. Icynene spray foam insulation reduces the transmission of both by sealing gaps and holes through which airborne sound moves within a home. This is especially true of light density, open-cell Icynene spray foam insulation, due to its natural sound-absorbing properties.

Airborne Noise Reduction with Icynene Spray Foam Insulation

Airborne noise includes things like talking, stereos and televisions. Icynene spray foam insulation dramatically reduces the transmission of airborne noise by sealing the cracks and crevices air would otherwise pass through.

You can reduce sound from:

Indoor noise:

  • Home theaters
  • Playrooms
  • Workshops
  • Laundry rooms
  • Wood and tile floors

Outdoor noise:

  • Traffic and street sounds
  • Playgrounds
  • Airplanes

Flanking Noise Reduction with Icynene Spray Foam Insulation

Flanking noise includes sounds originating within the walls, like plumbing runs. Open-cell Icynene spray foam insulation muffles this sound especially well by sealing all the way around the source. The lack of air gaps prevents airborne transmission of the sound waves.

Reduce noise:

  • Around plumbing runs – e.g. showers and toilet flushing
  • Great for main floor bathrooms near gathering areas such as kitchens and great rooms
