From your bedroom, you can often hear internal and external noise from home theatre systems, the kitchen, laundry, traffic and neighbours. Certain rooms such as the master bedroom should be isolated from the intrusion of noise. Noise control is a two-way street; sometimes you want to stop noise reaching you and other times you want to prevent sounds you make from disturbing others.

For more peace and quiet and privacy and potentially to increase the resale value of your home, incorporate a GIB Noise Control® System using GIB Noiseline®. A GIB Noise Control® System is a combination of products and building practices that work together to reduce (not eliminate) noise. It works by trying to stop sound waves or vibrations from passing through walls, ceilings, windows or doors.

Tips for your project

  • When building, try to avoid locating the bedrooms next to main noise sources. Think about placing en-suites and wardrobes in between areas for maximum separation. 
  • While renovating, after removing old linings, it’s the perfect time to add extra power points, light switches and insulation which in older homes are often minimal.
  • For new or existing homes, we strongly recommend installing smoke detectors.
