sound proofing with a dropped ceiling
« on: December 28, 2004, 05:36:20 AM »
I have a dropped ceiling in my basement apartment. The ceiling tiles are accoustic 2' x 4'. The basement apartment is about 735 sq ft. Iwould like to make the basement quieter for overnight guests - I live upstairs. Part of my floors are laminate the others are carpeted.

My question is: Is it possible to adhesive the wedge tiles you have to the back of the current ceiling tiles and will this help reduce the noise transmitted between the my floor and the apartment ceiling?

We do have a melamine tile that can be adhered to your existing tiles.
Also you can use Cotton fiber insulation and put it on top of your drop ceiling to help absorb noise.
