Room without 4 walls
« on: August 06, 2005, 06:41:11 AM »
My friend and I just converted the living room of a one bedroom apartment into a 2 bedroom by putting up a wall down the center of the living room.  Unfortunately, we were not allowed to put up a full wall since in case of a fire, the sprinkler (now located in the 2nd bedroom) would not be able to reach the other room.  The wall only goes up to 7 feet, the ceiling is about 9 feet.  Can anyone suggest a way to put something temporary up in this space so that I can have some privacy?  Is there a curtain that can be put on a track along the ceiling?  Or could I possibly get those glass brick/blocks and stack them on the top?    Of course my budget is also somewhat limited, but I would love to hear any and all suggestions :-)

Take a look at the curtains and drapes page then scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page.  There you will find a mounting kit that that is used to hand strips of clear MLV.  Overlap the MLV 100% to get the maximum results.

Jill, glass blocks make an excellent soundproofing wall or window, however, you may be surprised at their cost- as much as $15 each- check, some Home Depots have them.

Used glass blocks may be had far cheaper- check Ebay!

Another solution is that of using a Closed Cell Foam that is 2" thick. I t can be used to helpp fill the open space above the wall that you described.

Take a look at:/

This approach has worked well in a simialr situation concerning a corporate board room.
