Soundproofing a building has many benefits, especially when the environment is sound-sensitive and that acoustics have to be taken into account to make sure that the sound is properly contained and expressed with clarity. Here are some classic examples of environments that benefit from acoustic soundproofing:


Schools have various different rooms with different requirements for acoustics. For example, the assembly hall will require good acoustics so that whoever’s speaking can be heard, whereas a music room would require soundproofing to prevent disruptions to other classes.


If you work in a large building and use different meeting rooms, soundproofing can reduce the amount of reverberation passing through the walls, which could lead to disruptions in important meetings.


Home is meant to be a haven but we’ve all had to deal with noisy neighbours at some point in our lives. If you can hear literally every word coming through your neighbours’ wall then you’ve got a serious privacy problem that can negatively impact your life in ways you might not have expected.


Factories can be loud places thanks to the clanking of machinery and much more. Soundproofing such an environment can contribute to a more peaceful space and prevent disruptions or distractions. A quieter working environment is generally better for productivity whilst reducing stress, work-related headaches and so on.

Why Soundproofing?

There are plenty of other reasons to invest in soundproofing, the least not being that a bit more peace and quiet can never go amiss! Generally, soundproofing has more benefits than simply keeping things quieter; it also leads to improved sound quality and reduced reverberation, meaning that you can hear what you’re supposed to hear without worrying about distracting external noise.

Acara Concepts are soundproofing stockists that sell solutions to retailers in the form of high quality soundproofing boards to be used for a variety of buildings and sound requirements. Whether you want to soundproof a home, a school or an office building they will have the solution to help you do it.

Previously branded as Phonewell, PhoneStar is known for its versatility and high-performance, effectively making the process of soundproofing easier and more efficient. PhoneStar soundproofing boards are certified to reduce airborne sound by an incredible 36 Decibels, and that’s just on their own. Used for soundproofing ceilings and floors, PhoneStar boards can produce even better results.

How does PhoneStar work?

PhoneStar boards are dense and with high mass. They are also soft thanks to the design, which involves an engineered, fluted cardboard carcass filled with a loose quartz sand filling. These characteristics are critical in the reduction of sound.

PhoneStar is also easy to install which would explain its popularity. For instance, it is easy to cut and fill with simple butt joints, and as well as offering excellent soundproofing properties the product also has great thermal mass that would be ideal for use with underfloor heating systems.
