Dance Studio above me!
« on: June 23, 2006, 09:20:18 PM »
Hi
A dance studio has moved in above my office and we are looking for a way to reduce the noise from the little kids, they sound like a marching army!!

This is a small block wall commercial building with steel joists and a concrete floor.  They put down some kind of absorbing dance floor but its like a rubble from up there.

We have acustic ceilings down here.

do you have any suggestions?  Hopefully something to lay on the concrete floor and then the dance floor laid on top.

Thanks!!

You are dealing with "IMPACT" sound from above. Very hard to deal with - Impact soundproofing would have to have been done prior to the wooden flooring being installed in order to help you below.  Adding a new soundproof ceiling system below can be very expensive and labor intensive. These are the only true ways we know of dealing with the "Dance Studio" above your location.
