Where Multi-use application on walls, floors and ceilings. Used as a standalone for the damping of vibration in metal structures and use in many of our acoustic systems.
Tecsound is a flexible, easy to handle and high performing acoustic matting for all your soundproofing needs. it is a feature in many of our acoustic systems and is suited for timber and concrete structures with particular focus on the 'muting' vibration in metal structures. Learn more below.
There are long-term health effects that are now being connected with the exposure to noise, maintaining health and wellbeing is important in both homes and workplaces. With this in mind, it is important to find the right solution, one that can bring peace and quiet to your environment.
Tecsound S100 is a visco-elastic membrane, and this means it is both a viscous material, part way between a solid and a liquid, having elastic properties, meaning that it returns to its original form when stress is within its limits, like pulling an elastic band, if you pull it too hard it will break.
Tecsounds sweet spot for damping or ‘muting’ vibration does not often go into these ‘stresses’ in the majority of projects that need control over vibration.
- 4m x 1.2m x 5mm (4.8m2).
- A visco-elastic membrane for damping vibration.
- High mass for resisting airborne noise.
- Self-adhesive application to a wide range of surfaces.
- Easy to cut to size
For soundproofing, these are both effective for the damping of vibration, and because of its high mass, will reduce airborne noise too. To achieve the best possible solution on soundproofing projects, you will need to incorporate them into ‘Systems’, and it is here you will find Tecsound in a range of options. Each offers ways of increasing acoustic performance, for example, by fitting them alongside acoustic cradles to create a fully floating floor, by adding them to joist structures alongside sound insulation for a vast improvement for airborne and impact noise or use in concrete buildings as a standalone for impact reduction.
Tecsound S100 is a single ply material, one that is primarily designed to be installed within acoustic systems, or used to be directly applied to metal cladding to dampen vibration. Our acoustic test data and performance is based on an acoustic curtain, where Tecsound separates two rooms and then measures its performance. When factored into a ‘System’ this will change as you cannot add dB levels together, you can learn more on our ‘Science of Soundproofing’ page.
Tecsound S100 is a self-adhesive material, and when Tecsound arrives, you will find two sheets attached as you roll it out. One of them is a polypropylene fleece that helps increase the tear strength of the Tecsound, do not tear this off, the other is the removable protective covering to expose the adhesive, this is easy to peel off compared to the protective fleece. If you are unsure, peel a little off the corner to reveal the adhesive side.
You will want to install Tecsound over the joins of acoustic plasterboard and not meet them up to create an airtight system, the lesser joins, the better. With this in mind, when cutting Tecsound you will want to keep them as generous as possible without being challenging to manage, it is easy to cut with a new Stanley blade, and you will want to have at least two people during the installation.
