Impact traveling through concrete floor to adjoining condo
« on: September 19, 2013, 08:17:45 PM »
Hi folks!

I just finished a new commercial studio and we installed some enormous double walls (13 ft tall) to block sound to the adjoining residential condos in the same building. The walls do a  great job of blocking music and sound but to my chagrin we now have complaints of impact (dancing from our first event) traveling to the adjoining condo! This is a huge bummer since we spent some 6K on the wall in that direction, and the floor is concrete but should not be changed (it's good a for a photo studio).  Any ideas for temporary flooring solutions that can be rolled up or any other ideas to help remove the impact noise? The neighbor on that side is highly sound sensitive and we've had to knock down sound below 45dB to keep him happy, but the principal commercial purpose of the studio is as both a photography studio and an event space. If we can't hold events that involve dancing, it will kill our ability to make the studio financially sustainable!

Thanks for your help!

your going to have to decouple from the structure in order to reduce impact issues. Give me a call direct, we have a couple options for you.
