    Step 1: Assess the Wall and Determine Requirements

    Before installing MUTE SYSTEM™, examine the wall. Do this to understand the noise sources, like traffic, neighbors, or machines. Evaluate the needed sound reduction level. Base it on the room's specific requirements. 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. Make sure the work area is clean. It should be free from dust or debris. These could mess up the installation.

    Step 4: Gather the Necessary Tools and Accessories

    To install MUTE SYSTEM™, you need these tools. You need a tape measure, drill with 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™ fasteners to the wall surface. Put them at regular intervals as DECIBEL recommends. Ensure they are fixed securely and evenly across the wall.
    ☑️ Use a sound and vibration-insulating sealant from DECIBEL. Put it around the edge of each MUTE panel before installation. This additional step helps to further reduce sound transmission.
    ☑️ Place the MUTE panels against the DClox™ fasteners. Make sure they are securely attached and aligned. Use a level to ensure the panels are straight and level.
    ☑️ Screw the panels in with the provided screws. Follow the instructions from DECIBEL. Be cautious not to tighten the screws too much. This may affect the soundproofing.
    ☑️ 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:

      ☑️ Place this membrane between the existing wall and MUTE panels. It adds 3 dB of sound reduction.
      ☑️ Sound and Vibro Isolating DCstrip Tape: Apply it around the edge of each MUTE panel. It reduces sound more, adding 2 dB of sound reduction.
