What is a soundproofing barrier?
Noise barrier or sound barrier products add mass to a wall, ceiling, floor, or enclosure serving as a highly effective soundproofing solution - at an affordable price. SoundAway Soundproofing Barriers are typically installed directly on the studs or joists to reduce noise transmission between the source of the sound and the destination.
What is STC?
Sound Transmission Class (STC) is a rating assigned to a material or an assembly of materials representing the transmission loss or reduction in sound between the source and the target. A standardized test, performed in an acoustics lab, measures the transmission loss between a Sound Source and a Target room. Measurements are taken over a range of 8 different frequencies ranging between 125Hz and 4000Hz. These frequencies cover the speech range.
