When is a Sound Proofed Garden Room not a Soundproof Garden Room?


Soundproofed rooms are visually pretty indistinguishable from our normal garden rooms, it is what goes on inside, hidden within the panels that makes the difference. It's the layers fitted to the inside of the room that makes them soundproof.

So you cannot tell from outside, (unless you know a few subtle tell-tale signs) whether the photos of our rooms are examples of normal rooms or soundproofed rooms.

Of course, there is one blatant and definite way to distinguish between one of our soundproofed studios and a competitor's soundproofed studio, a way which nobody can argue with, and that is a DB meter.

This means that if you are looking for a soundproofed garden studio, and they are expensive, then you must do your due diligence and get it right. Test them with a CD or MP3 you really like (Dire Straits or Wiley - depending on your taste!) and "pump up the volume" to the max, close the doors and walk ten paces away. 

Even better, ask us for the nearest soundproofed garden room to you of the same db suppression spec as you want, and not only go and test that, but also ask the owner what we are like to deal with too. We have many customers all over the Uk so there is always a soundproofed garden room not too far away. Because your a local, they are always happy to help, since we only ask if they are on the doorstep of a potential customer.

Simply measure the sound left at 10 meters away (we use that as a datum since a neighbour is rarely closer than that) and that will give you your answer.

Choose your supplier based upon that. From that point onwards, we look forward to suppling your guaranteed soundproofed extra room.
