Guide for sound insulation in wood frame construction
J. D. Quirt
by Institute for Research in Construction, National Research Council Canada in Ottawa
Written in English
This Guide addresses flanking transmission of sound through wood framed construction. Continuous structural elements and connections at the junctions of partition walls and floors provide transmission paths that by-pass the separating partition between two noise-sensitive spaces. Flanking transmission is sound transmission between two rooms by paths other than directly through the nominally separating wall or floor assembly. Flanking exists in all buildings and its importance in determining the apparent sound insulation (that perceived by the occupants) depends on of the construction details of the walls, the floors and their junctions.

Advanced Framing Construction Guide, Form M, explains several advanced framing techniques and includes illustrated construction details. Download > Case Study: Advanced Framing Boosts Energy Performance, Form T, describes how a Pennsylvania builder gained a competitive advantage by adopting advanced framing techniques. Figure 4 provides construction details for framing sound insulation walls at ceilings and floor attachments. Doors Where optimum noise control is desired, solid wood core doors should be used. Door tops and sides should be gasketed with a soft-type weather stripping. Use of threshold closures at the bottom of the door or air sealsFile Size: 1MB.
Wood Frame Construction: Ceilings. Spring isolation hangers. These are best for lower frequency noise control. Secured to wood-frame construction (e.g., joists, trusses), a typical hanger incorporates a one-inch-rated deflection spring in series with a neoprene cup, and will typically support two or more layers of gypsum board. Leaf spring hanger. Design of Wood Framing General This chapter addresses elements of above-grade structural systems in residential construction. As discussed in Chapter 1, the residential construction material most commonly used above grade in the United States is light-frame wood; therefore, this chapter focuses on structural design that specifies standard.
1) Add Insulation: Install fiberglass in between the studs (R Insulation Batts for a 2x4" Framing and R Insulation Batts for 2x6" Framing). 2) Install Resilient Sound Clips on the face of the studs using the following guide: Whisper Clips Installation Guide. In this excerpt from Graphic Guide to Frame Construction, author Rob Thallon provides a visual guide to the information you'll need for constructing headers, window and door openings, wall intersections, corners, rake and cantilevered walls, along with insulation : Rob Thallon.

Choosing the right insulation for timber frame construction is important to achieve the best thermal performance and moisture control of the building. The type of insulation required depends on the area of the building and the space available.
wood-frame assemblies (e.g., batt insulation in a floor cavity), this method is much less common in mass timber floor/ceiling assemblies. That said, several acoustically-tested mass timber floor assemblies include wood sleepers on top of the panels and noise barriers such as sand or batt insulation between the sleepers.

An Architect’s Guide to Soundproofing. -up is particularly important if you’ve specified the use of sound isolation rails or decoupling the drywall from the framing as a way to dampen sound.
It’s common for contractors to screw drywall to the framing and to the noise dampeners, which defeats the purpose of decoupling the drywall.Sound Attenuation Batt Insulation Product Data Sheet Description Sound Attenuation Batts (SAB’s) are unfaced, lightweight, fl exible fi berglass insulation batts, designed to deliver noise control in metal stud wall cavities of interior partitions.
