Effectiveness of Latex Sound Proof Wall Liner
Latex Sound Proof Wall Liner deadens sound, particularly those noises in the lower frequency ranges, and helps you create a tranquil, peaceful space that is shielded from irritating sound pollution such as noisy neighbours, busy main roads and the blare of aircraft overhead.
It is particularly effective when used as a barrier to prevent sounds entering your home or office, for example from noisy neighbours or traffic noise. If in contrast you want to stop sound escaping from a particularly noisy area (such as a teenagers bedroom) and polluting other spaces, we recommend using our Sound Proof Insulating Liner instead.
Helping to reduce unwanted noises by as much as -
30% Reduction at 1000 Hz - Talking
60% Reduction at 2000 Hz - TV's / Radios
75% Reduction at 3000 Hz - Vacuum Cleaners, Lorries on the Road
Preparation & Use
Saarpor Latex Sound Proof Wall Liner is as quick and easy to install as wallpaper making it perfect the perfect DIY noise insulation solution. It is hung using the “paste the wall” method, which is when the paste is applied directly to walls rather than the product itself (see below for the full hanging instructions).
Because Latex Sound Proof Wall Liner is laminated with a thick non-woven polyester, it can be painted or papered onto directly, but for a professional finish we recommend lining over the top with an additional layer of non-woven lining paper.
Important - If you are planning to hang lining paper or Wallpaper on top of Latex Sound Proof Wall Liner, we strongly recommend that you use a non-woven lining paper such as Wallrock Fibreliner or Wallrock Fibreliner Plus.
Traditional lining paper shrinks and expands when pasted and can cause lifting on the joints. In contrast, non-woven lining paper is dimensionally stable and ensures a perfect finish.
Do not use Vinyl Wallpapers over Latex Sound Proof Wall Liner as they reflect sound and cancel out any noise insulation benefits.
Latex Sound Proof Wall Liner Disclaimer
As a company who prides itself on customer satisfaction we make every effort to ensure that we represent the effectiveness of our products as accurately as possible. In light of this, please be aware that the noise reduction figures stated on our website for our Sound Insulation Liner and Latex Sound Proof Liner products are the maximum amounts of noise reduction achieved when they were tested by the manufacturer on buildings with standard wall construction.
Sound transference is a complex subject and the actual amount of sound insulation homes will benefit from after installing these products will depend on a variety of factors such as the type of wall construction of both internal and external walls (breeze block walls are particularly difficult to acoustically insulate), the size and number of windows in the room and the type of floor/ceiling construction.
Sound is also transmitted via resonance effects from interconnecting structures such as joists under floors and above ceilings and not necessarily through the wall itself
For certain applications you may wish to seek advice from a sound proofing specialist to ascertain the best sound proofing solution for your home.

The ideal surface for application of wallcoverings is one that is 'slightly absorbent' and not glossy. This allows the adhesive to form a good bond with the surface.
Remove any loose or flaking paint, clean walls and allow to dry. If applying over wallpaper remove any loose wallpaper first. We recommend that ALL surfaces are lightly sanded and ‘Sized’ with a PVA or Flake Adhesive. New plaster should also be ‘Sized’.
The surface is now ready to be painted or wallpapered. If applying printed or textured wallpaper directly on to the surface you should ensure that it is a ‘Paste-the-Wall’ or ‘Non-Woven paper’, if not then we would recommend using Wallrock Fibreliner, Fibreliner Plus or Wallrock Premium first, for a superior textured finish try our Wallrock Texture or Trend.
Traditional lining paper shrinks and expands when pasted and can cause lifting on the joints. In contrast, non-woven lining paper is dimensionally stable and ensures a perfect finish for painting or wallpapering over.
For perfect results you must use 'Wallrock Thermal Liner Adhesive'. We cannot unfortunately accept responsibility for adhesion problems when an adhesive other than Wallrock Thermal Liner Adhesive has being used. If in doubt test hang a piece or consult your supplier.
Every effort is made to ensure each roll is in perfect condition, but faults can occur from time to time. Before hanging check that each roll is undamaged, we recommend that after hanging no more than 2 lengths that the result is inspected before continuing. We cannot accept claims for consequential loss in respect of visible defects apparent prior/after hanging.
Should a fault occur we will require all roll labels and original receipt, please contact us as soon as possible either by email or telephone our contact number is 0161 724 9085.
What side of the roll should be applied to the wall?
Always apply the cream foam side to the wall leaving the ruff hard surface facing outwards.
How much adhesive will 1 roll use?
On average, flat surfaces 4kg, damaged and textured surfaces 6kg. *Typical coverage may vary depending on application*. We recommend the use of Wallrock Thermal Liner Adhesive only.
What area does 1 roll cover?
The roll size is 10m x 50cm and covers 5 Square Metres – to find out how many rolls you need please use our wallpaper calculator in the top navigation.
What is the thickness of Latex Sound Proof Wall Liner?
Latex Sound Proof Wall Liner is 5mm thick.
Do I paste the wall or the paper?
Latex Sound Proof Wall Liner is a 'Paste the Wall Product Only'. We recommend the adhesive should be applied with a roller directly onto the wall.
My problem is that I would like to reduce the noise coming from next door?
Latex Sound Proof Wall Liner is better at absorbing noise entering the room through walls and ceilings - so if you have a problem with noisy neighbours and there is no chance of your neighbour doing anything himself to isolate the source, then this is the best product to use.
How do I tackle external corners?
Well you have 2 options, Latex Sound Proof will bend around the corner but this will give you a rounded corner, alternatively you can cut and butt joint at the corner, this option is best if you are applying a Wallrock Lining Paper or Wallrock Textured paper on top as it will hide the joint.
Can I hang Latex Sound Proof on ceilings?
Yes, but before applying you must lightly sand the ceiling and size with a PVA or Flake Adhesive, this will form a good surface for the Thermal Liner Adhesive to adhere to.
When applying the paper it keeps springing back off the wall, especially near to the end of the roll?
The roll is tightly wound up during manufacturer, we therefore recommend that they are opened and left on their ends to unravel naturally for approx. 24 hours before hanging.
Is it ok to put more than one layer on?
Yes, just make sure that the first layer has dried out completely before applying another layer; you must use the Wallrock Thermal Liner Adhesive.
Can I paint directly on to the Latex Sound Proof Wall Liner?
Yes, but the surface paper has a ruff textured finish, for a smooth finish use Wallrock Fibreliner, Fibreliner Plus or Wallrock Premium.
Why do you recommend lining over the top of Latex Sound Proof?
Two main reasons,
Important - If you are planning to hang lining paper on top of Latex Sound Proof, we strongly recommend that you use a non-woven lining paper such as Wallrock Fibreliner Plus, Wallrock Fibreliner or Wallrock premium.
Traditional lining paper shrinks and expands when pasted and can cause lifting on the joints In contrast; non-woven lining paper is dimensionally stable and ensures a perfect finish.
Do we need to take off the existing Wallpaper?
No, if the existing wallpaper is firmly stuck to the wall then Latex Sound Proof Wall Liner should cover it, however if it has a deep pattern (more than 3mm) or is a Vinyl based paper we would recommend that it is taken off before applying the :Latex Sound Proof Wall Liner.
Does it really work?
Yes, it is made from specially developed sound absorbing foam and laminated with a thick lining paper. The Latex structure acts like a sponge, reducing echo and deadening noise, and is particularly effective in combating high frequency sounds.
