Soundproof a Room Stage3 Part 3

Soundproof Garage fan install soundproof room ventilation airIsolate fan mounting

 

Unfortunately, I discovered (after the ceiling of the practice room had been put up), that the foam used to provide vibration insulation was too dense. A significant level of vibration was being transmitted into the frame of the room: so I had to think of an alternative solution.

Fan isolated from the ceiling rafters using an inflated bicycle inner tube

I had a look around in my shed to see what was readily available, and I found a bicycle inner tube (by the way, I've never seen this method in any acoustics text book!) So I figured that if I placed the inner tube in between the fan platform and the rafters, and then inflated it, it would provide a very good level of vibration insulation.


This method, even if it is somewhat unconventional, actually works very well!
