Product Overview

This product is applied before drywall, it is a light duty residential solution for blocking sound between rooms. Once mineral wool insulation is in place (purchase separately) - peel off protective film from tape at top of roll (make sure not to pull off the adhesive when removing the protective film) and press in place. It will hold in place while you add staples or self tapping screws (metal studs). This product works in commercial jobs only when metal studs are used. Quiet Wall is made from EVA Vinyl which is a safe plastic used in medical devices and food packaging. Laboratory test results show that Quiet Wall blocks airborne noise (voices and music) better than other equivalent mass loaded vinyl. Since 2010 more than 7 million square feet of EVA acoustic material has been installed in homes and businesses.

Questions & Answers

Is this supposed to be installed on the noisy side of a wall, or the quiet side? Or does it matter?

Asked by Mike January 5, 2021
1
Answer

It shouldn't matter, especially if you add fiber batting as further noise reduction. But I found that the noise-suppressing fiberglass insulation is far more effective and much easier to install than this stuff.

What is the STC sound reduction rating of this material?

Asked by Josh June 1, 2020
1
Answer

The STC sound reduction rating on this material is 21. The Quiet Wall Commercial product has an STC sound reduction rating of 26.

can i use this under carpet in upper apartments units to stop noise.

Answers

You can put it there, but it won't do you any good for noise reduction. It's useless.

does this off-gas like normal mass-loaded vinyl? I think EVA products are not supposed to.

Asked by Jake February 25, 2020
1
Answer

There are no VOC's in the Quiet Wall. Quiet Wall will not off-gas like PVC or rubber compounds that contain petroleum distillates. EVA is a naturally soft product and does not require VOC's to make it soft.

Could this be used on basement ceiling beneath drywall? I have an old house with lots of small gaps that allow noise

It's too damned heavy to install overhead. Also it would sag a lot, putting too much pressure on your drywall ceiling.

Asked by David February 14, 2020
1
Answer

The material is an impermeable vapor barrier. If there is a vapor barrier on the warm (interior) side of the wall adding the Quietwall to the cold side of the wall will trap moisture between the 2 vapor barriers and cause a condensation problem. The only time it should be used on the cold (exterior) side of the wall is if there is no vapor barrier on the other side of the wall

Asked by Oliver January 17, 2020

Answers

Yes, but it won't be as effective, if you're going to put another layer of drywall anyways, why not just remove the existing drywall and add this. When it's sandwiched between sheets of drywall, it will not be as effective, right up against studs filled with acoustic insulation is what you need to get the best results. Some sound will still travel through, but it will be great at blocking conversation and normal household levels of noises, if it's going in a home theater the the louder the sound the more sound that will leave the room.

What tape style that used in this sound barrier

Asked by Stanley December 16, 2019

Answers

I used FLEX TAPE, it worked just fine to stick to the rubber. But the rubber noise barrier is useless.

Can this be used like a wrap before siding is put on a house?

Asked by Pam November 21, 2019
2
Answers

It is designed to be used on the interior side of the exterior wall because it is an impermeable vapor barrier and can trap moisture in the wall cavity if it is placed on the exterior side of the wall.

Asked by Levi November 18, 2019

Answers

There will still be noise traveling from the inside of the duct, it won't be that effective, just use fiberglass insulation around the ducts. If there is noise from the HVAC equipment, this will not solve that issue, the noise from HVAC equipment is most likely because your ducting is undersized, then the only solution is new ductwork. It sounds like you're describing sound coming from within the duct, and wrapping the outside will do very little if anything to stop the sound waves bouncing off the interior walls of rigid ductwork.

Don't waste your time and money. This product does practically nothing to reduce noise levels coming through a wall. I spent quite a lot of time and money on this stuff, and it proved to be useless. First I installed fiberglass insulation which is supposed to be a sound barrier as well. Next I hung this rubber sheet from floor to ceiling, using galvanized roofing nails (the recommended staples didn't go through). Then I installed drywall on both sides of my new wall, taped & floated with joint compound, primed and painted. Even with all those layers, I can still hear my little dog sniffing at me through the wall. I would return it for a refund, but that would mean tearing my wall apart and practically rebuilding the entire thing. If you do decide to waste your time and money on this, be sure to have two friends help lift this stuff while you nail it onto your frames. It's quite heavy and will rip holes if you try to do it yourself.

Not a review, just a tip to help when installing.
When installing this to block noise this is very important to know. Anywhere at all that is not air tight will let sound get through. If you have outlets, switches or lights, they have to be air tight. If you have a crawl space, sound will travel under the floor. If you have a second floor and you do not seal in between the floor, sound will come through. Any spot that sound can get through, it will. Then you will think it is the product and it is not. It is the installation. This is not going to block everything, but if the whole project is done correctly, it will absolutely do its job.
