bathroom vibration and tiles.
« on: August 18, 2010, 03:42:26 PM »
Hi all

I am looking for a way to stop vibration noise in bathrooms that will not add too much to the walls.As far as I understand adding mass to the wall will reduce normal sound but if the walls are not decoupled vibration noise will just travel through the timber studs.I have used resilient bars before but in a bathroom they will take up too much space.Do rubber products stop vibration noise? Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

No, it will not perform..the first time you drive a screw through the drywall and back into a stud you have just created the direct path...You must decouple to reduce structure borne noise/vibration.
You can do a double layer of drywall with green glue sandwiched in between but it will not deliver the same results as decoupling with channel.
