Soundproof a Room Stage 2 Part 4

rockwool slab insulation soundproof drummer studioThe type of insulation used was slabs of 75mm Rockwool RWA45 (45 kgm-3).

These were fixed to the wall by using short lengths of metal strapping to act as washers. These were placed onto 100mm screws with a Rawlplug on the end. The Rockwool slab was then offered up to the wall, a hole drilled through it into the garage wall, and then the screw with the strapping washer pushed through the Rockwool into the hole and screwed into place.

Each Rockwool slab was held in place with four screws.
