Sound Proofing AutoCalc
When properly noise isolating a room, there is simply no halfway measure that will provide you with a proper solution. The DreamScreen ProSilence line of items are designed for and used by professional studios, but works just as well for home cinema setups. The concept of decoupling the walls, ceiling and floors is core to the ProSilence.
The below calculations include all critical components required for building a studio grade sound proofed room, including the recommended double layer of gypsum in both walls and ceiling as well as Green Glue between the layers for maximum performance.
In addition to the below components you´ll need a noise reducing door, but as doors differ in almost every country this is the only vital component you need to find elsewhere in addition to the standard wooden studs (48x30, 48x36 or 48x48mm) and chipboards for the flooring.
The suggested ventilation unit, the TwinFresh, is really a brilliant piece of gear, avoiding the use of existing ventilation system that can potentially allow noise to travel inside your home. Instead, this fan is directed to the outside of your home, and can be installed in multiplies depending on the size of your room (the suggested amounts are calculated automatically). More info in this video >>.
As prioritized when developing all our concepts, emphasis is placed on allowing our customers to easily install the products themselves. Installing the clips + studs as well as the U-boats is a highly manageable task for many DIY cinema builders out there.
We´ll ship these items by pallet to most European countries, shipping is calculated after you have placed the system in your shopping cart and continued to the next page.
These YouTube videos show a project from our main distributor in Norway, AVshop, building one of their showrooms using clips, U-boats and fiber gypsum. Some of these instructions are not applicable to other setups, for example the attachment of clips directly to an existing plasterboard (must be attached to the studs to avoid triple leaf, read more about this on the ProSilence Clip product info >>). However, the basics are covered although we will certainly make out a new, updated and official instructions video shortly.
