The easy DIY solution to your noisy neighbour problems: Acoustic Putty Pads.
Three simple steps to a quieter life:
- Remove the face plate from your socket or switch
- Push the acoustic putty into the back and sides of the box

Note: we've shown the fascia removed from the wiring just to give you a clear image. You can leave the fascia attached to the wiring, just hanging, for ease of installation.
Our intumescent, mouldable acoustic putty pads are designed to easily fit socket boxes to reduce sound travel through dry walls. The pads also provide fire resistance while maintaining the acoustic integrity of the wall. The strong malleable putty avoids accidental tearing or puncturing while offering flexibility during fitting.

Speedline Acoustic Putty Pads are a quick and easy soundproofing solution that, because they are manufactured from an intumescent material, also provide up to two hours of fire resistance.
