JCW Weight Enhanced Soundproofing Barrier Mat is a thin, highly effective soundproofing mat designed to block and attenuate the transmission of airborne noise through stud partitions, floors with timber joists and ceilings. The mat is easy to install and lightweight to handle.
Available in 4 different weights per square metre (3kgs/m2, 5kgs/m2, 7.5kgs/m2 and 10kgs/m2) in individual sheet or continuous roll options (see chart below), JCW Weight Enhanced Soundproofing Barrier Mat is one of our most regularly recommended and used soundproofing products because it is so versatile.
