Sound Absorption

Sound Absorption is the product of sound absorption coefficient and surface area of a material, the units are Sabins. Sound energy is 'absorbed' by the different media that sound waves encounter, along their transmission path, from the source to the receiver.

SoundProof Atlanta offers a variety of products in order to address your sound absorption needs while matching the décor within your space.

Absorption Soundproofing Products:

  • Standard Foam Acoustic Panels
  • Fiberglass Acoustical Panels
  • Custom Color-Coated Foam Acoustical Panels (Available in any Sherwin-Williams color)
  • Custom Fabric Panels (Ask about our wide variety of fabric colors and textures!)
  • Fabric-Covered Walls
  • Ceiling Baffles and Clouds
  • Custom Acoustical Assemblies

Sound Blocking

Sound blocking or soundproofing uses insulating materials to prevent or "block" sound waves from intruding or escaping a space. The physical act of blocking sound requires the use of heavy, dense materials of sufficient mass that can reflect sound, thus containing it in one space and/or preventing it from getting into another space.

SoundProof Atlanta utilizes several products in order to block sound from entering or escaping a room:

  • Mass Loaded Acoustical Material (Suitable for walls, ceilings, and floors)
  • Acoustical Drop Ceiling Tiles
  • Custom Wall Assemblies


Sound absorption products are given an NRC (Noise Reduction Coefficient) rating, while sound blocking (or soundproofing) materials are given an STC (Sound Transmission Class).

While both acoustic products reduce unwanted sound, they accomplish sound reduction by different means and can be used in combination in order to achieve the desired effect.

What makes SoundProof Atlanta different from other soundproofing options?

We provide tasteful soundproofing solutions. We assess your specific situation, find the issues, research the solution, supply the materials, and finally, do the installation. We are unique in our industry because we are with you from start to finish. Most soundproofing companies provide only one or some of these services.

Can I just soundproof my space on my own (DIY)?

50% of the job of soundproofing is the proper selection of materials. Individuals are able, online, to see the wide range of soundproofing product options and to purchase them. Since the selection of the correct materials for your specific situation is so important, it can be tricky for an individual without soundproofing experience to make the best choices.

We do have customers contact us for recommendations for soundproof windows who will choose to purchase the products from us and do the installation themselves. Soundproof Atlanta will sell products alone without the installation service to customers who make such a request. We will be happy to make a recommendation to a customer for the best soundproofing materials for their situation in order for them to take on the project themselves.

However, the other 50% of the job of soundproofing is the proper installation, attention to detail, and making sure that everything is put in correctly. Not only that, but we have access to industry-specific soundproofing computer software that we utilize to ensure that you get the best results based on the specifics of your case for our installers to use when we provide the installation for you, so you can get the most out of your investment and have the peace and quiet you deserve in your home or business.

What is the hardest noise to stop?

The hardest noises to stop are the deep, low vibration sounds that come from things like large trucks, motorcycles, and airplanes. This is a common issue that we face. It is very difficult, but it is solvable! The other difficult noise to tackle is ceiling footfall and noise heard from below. Once again, a solvable issue, but one of a soundproof company’s greatest challenges.

How should I choose a soundproofing professional?

There are a few key things to consider when choosing a room soundproofing professional:
- Look for experience.
- Ask for references.
- Ask to see examples of their work.
- Someone who has a background in sciences (physics) and construction.
- Someone who lives to serve others with their knowledge, skills, and abilities in their business.

What Products and Services does SoundProof Atlanta offer?

We offer a variety of custom products depending on the specific, unique needs of every client and situation. We procure products and materials made in the U.S.A.

The services we provide depend on what the specific soundproofing needs are. We can provide an acoustical study to evaluate the situation and choose the best solution. We can also do a complete buildout (turn-key) or we can provide consultation and project management to assist your team in implementation of the acoustical solutions.

What is included in a paid site assessment?

Our team of acoustical consultants will tour your space and talk through the intended usage and any current issues. They will identify problem areas within your space and ascertain the most effective treatment options. Photos and acoustical measurements will be taken, and a written report will be provided for you to review. Further in-depth acoustical analyses are also available upon request.

How much noise reduction can I expect from an acoustical window install?

The windows we most commonly use are rated at STC-34. Assuming that the noise is not entering through any other gaps in siding or doors, you can expect around a 34 decibel reduction in noise once they are properly installed and sealed. This generally results in the offending noise seeming to sound as if it were far in the distance, resulting in a much more pleasant interior environment. For special applications, we also offer custom solutions including higher STC ratings, tinting/frosting, and greater impact resistance, etc.

What is the average lead time for a typical project?

If your project only calls for standard color and size/shape panels, we can often complete the installation within 2-3 weeks. Depending on the style and level of custom work, this lead time can extend up to 8 weeks while waiting for custom-ordered materials to be fabricated. Residential windows require 6-8 weeks from the date of ordering currently. Note: These are average lead times that are subject to change due to industry delays.

What areas do you travel to/work in?

While we are based in Atlanta, we have completed installs all over the Southeast US, including all of Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Tennessee, and South Carolina. If your acoustical project is located in these states or anywhere nearby, don’t hesitate to reach out and we would be happy to discuss options for working together.
