Re: please help, noise reduction.

You could also hang a sound curtain in front of the door. We've done that on ships to isolate equipment sound from the user.'

And is he talking about a 50% reduction in decibles or a 50% reduction in the volume of the sound? For every 3db of reduction of decibles the volume decreases by half so going from 100db to 50db is a bunch of noise reduction.

yes ill have a look at that and see if it would work, good idea!

well i didn't initially realize that an decibels don't work in linear improvements such as 20cm is 10cm more than 10cm. It works in powers of 10 so 20db is 10x louder than 10db. That being said this is the claim on the website...

"Our IsoMax Clip system offers the industries highest performing soundproofing system, designed to reduce sound transmition and vibrations through walls and ceilings. Offering higher dB levels than standard resilient bars. Attaching the IsoMax Clip to timber joists, simply and easily secures the furring channel and decouples the new high mass ceiling layers from the structure, resulting in up to 49dB airborne and 55db impact sound reduction ."

which i think backs up his claim of reducing the decibels by half. It isn't something i'm experienced in though so i could be mislead.

my thinking is it cant make it any worse lol

sound proof underlay and carpet (with a vinyl covering round the cage) will replace the laminate aswell

Re: please help, noise reduction.

I was in a similar situation when I got married and had a newborn.

I have 2 conures, a grey and a ringneck for over 6 years. I ended having a 12x10 fully insulated shed in my back yard with a dedicated 30amp circuit and running water build to house them. I used sound proof insulation and 5/8" thick drywall with waterproof paint. Storm proof door and double pane windows on all sides of the structure for plenty of natural light.

Now they can scream their little heads off and no one can hear them in the house. I usually spend 3-4 hours a day in there with them playing and giving them attention. They love it there and the people in my house love the quiet.

I've even added a TV and mini fridge with a lazy boy to make it my man cave. It actually has worked out really good for me. Just me and my birds...and my beer.

That was the only thing that worked for me where I could keep my feathered kids and my families sanity.

Re: please help, noise reduction.

Soft items will absorb the sound... pillows, curtains, carpets and upholstered furniture. Plants are also good at reducing the noise.
