    This guide will take you through the process of soundproofing a wall using MUTE SYSTEM™, including installation steps and additional accessories to improve soundproofing performance.


    Step 1: Assess the Wall and Determine Requirements

    Before installing MUTE SYSTEM™, assess the wall to understand the noise sources, such as external traffic, neighbors, or machinery. Evaluate the desired sound reduction level based on the specific requirements of the room. This will help determine the appropriate thickness and specifications of MUTE panels needed.

    Step 2: Measure and Order MUTE SYSTEM™

    Measure the dimensions of the wall(s) that need soundproofing. Use the measurements to determine the quantity of MUTE panels required. Choose the thickness option (23 mm, 33 mm, or 63 mm) based on the desired sound reduction level.

    Step 3: Prepare the Work Area

    Clear the wall of any obstructions, such as furniture or wall décor. Ensure the work area is clean and free from dust or debris that could compromise the installation process.

    Step 4: Gather the Necessary Tools and Accessories

    To install MUTE SYSTEM™, gather the following tools: tape measure, drill with appropriate drill bits, screwdriver, level, gloves, and safety goggles. Additionally, consider purchasing the accessories offered by DECIBEL to further enhance soundproofing performance.

    Step 5: Installation of MUTE SYSTEM™

    Follow these steps for a proper installation of MUTE SYSTEM™:

    ☑️ Attach the anti-vibration DClox™ fastening elements to the existing wall surface at regular intervals as recommended by DECIBEL. Ensure they are fixed securely and evenly across the wall.
    ☑️ Apply a sound and vibration-insulating sealant, provided by DECIBEL, around the perimeter of each MUTE panel before installation. This additional step helps to further reduce sound transmission.
    ☑️ Place the MUTE panels against the DClox™ fastening elements, ensuring they are securely attached and aligned properly. Use a level to ensure the panels are straight and level.
    ☑️ Secure the panels with the necessary screws provided, following the instructions provided by DECIBEL. Be cautious not to overtighten the screws, as this may affect the soundproofing performance.
    ☑️ Repeat the process until all panels are installed, creating a fully soundproofed wall.

      Step 6: Additional Accessories for Improved Soundproofing

      DECIBEL offers various accessories to enhance the soundproofing performance of MUTE SYSTEM™. Consider using the following:

      ☑️ Sound and Vibro Insulating DCvisco Membrane: Place this membrane between the existing wall and MUTE panels to add an additional 3 dB of sound reduction.
      ☑️ Sound and Vibro Isolating DCstrip Tape: Apply this tape around the perimeter of each MUTE panel to further reduce sound transmission, contributing an additional 2 dB of sound reduction.

        Step 7: Seek Expert Advice if Required
