The best way to tighten up a room’s sound and make it more soundproof in the process is to design it right, build it tight and make the partitions as dense as possible.

Rockwool Insulation is made of slag, which is a recycledsteel product, and rock, a trap rock mined in Texas…those are the only raw materials in rockwool insulation. “Coke” which is a recycled material from coal is used to make the heat hotter in the manufacturing process, in order to save energy.
Rockwool is the safest insulation on the market today, it also has one of the best thermal insulating properties as well as a superior sound control while not supporting mold or mildew. Other similar products on the market are either all chemical, or have chemicals added to them to keep them fire retardant.
Rockwool Thermafiber products have a higher melt point than glass fiber products, offering extra fire protection. These sound attenuation fire blankets have high density to reduce noise. Stud blankets go into cavities of metal-stud or wood-stud walls, insulated exterior wall furring applications and curtain walls. Z-Furring Blankets are for use with USG Z-Furring channels in exterior applications. Fire Safety FS25 Blankets give additional fire protection.
When this product is installed in stud cavities, the Superior Sound Attenuation Ratings have improved by as much as 11 points in some cases. These blankets are also effective in reducing low-frequency sound levels from machinery, mechanical equipment and music.
