Sound Proofing Windows in Leased Office Space (Australia)
« on: December 20, 2011, 02:32:03 AM »

Hello,

We recently leased some office space that we are planning to use to shoot video tutorials. Unfortunately the office is above a road and we want to be able to dampen the noise as much as possible (there are two large windows facing the road that seem to let the most noise in)

From spending some time reading around this forum, it seems that foam plugs may be our best option (given its a leased space, and these are removable).

I just wanted to confirm a couple of things, before I go off, and start putting some foam plugs together.

1) It seems 1 1/2" or 2" SSP Mats have been recommended frequently - are these sold in Australia, or is there another alternative to these? Or do I need to order it from overseas?
2) When cutting the the board, and fitting the foam mat to the board - should the foam go around the edges of the board to better 'plug' the board into the window?

Thanks in advance for your help!
