REFLEXOR is a flexible 1.7 mm thick thermo-acoustic membrane for walls and ceilings. REFLEXOR provides a continuous sound barrier, sealing each room with precision. REFLEXOR is often used when space is an issue in a condo project.
Composed of acoustic polyester fibres and a reflective metallic film, REFLEXOR is also a powerful vapour barrier and blocks the transmission of odours, smoke, carbon monoxide, and the development of mould.
When soundproofing your basement rental from the rest of your home, take note that flanking noise (from along the areas floor and wall meet) need to be sealed. Sound can travel in these areas to all parts of your home.
When soundproofing your basement, remember to take into account the impact sound and vibration of foot traffic. We provide acoustic underlays that will solve this issue.
I have noisy neighbours. What is the first step toward soundproofing my home?
Start by determining the level of soundproofing that you require, and your budget. We offer a wide range of solutions. Our Exceptional Soundproofing solutions, (either SONOPAN or REFLEXOR), are simple, cost-effective solutions for mild noise control. When your noisy neighbours are extreme, use our Extreme Soundproofing solution which combines SONOPAN with REFLEXOR.
How does sound travel between rooms?
Sound transmission paths between two units include both direct transmission through the separating assembly (ex: sound leaks or direct transmission through materials) and flanking transmission through adjacent wall and floor assemblies. It’s crucial to ensure there are no openings between two rooms (seal all openings) and to use materials with different densities to achieve the best soundproofing performance possible.
Are there standards for sound transmission (STC) for walls and ceilings in my Condo/Townhome?
The Canadian Building Code requires a minimum STC level of 50 between units. Check with your condo board to find out if your requirements are higher.
