Installation Overview

Tips

  • Install SONOpan directly to any surface. Drywall seams should be offset to improve soundproofing results
  • For best results, use a circular saw to cut panels
  • Secure panels with drywall screws and washers if necessary
  • If applying SONOpan directly to wood, 7/16 crown staples or plastic cap nails may be substituted for drywall screws for a faster install

Pro Tips

Acoustical Sealant

Sound can travel through small openings, so apply an acoustical sealant to the perimeter of each SONOpan panel and to the perimeter of walls and ceilings.

Seal in any gaps with acoustical caulking.

Use Insulation

Always use insulation when possible. Whether fibreglass, wool batt or cellulose, insulation plays a key role in the soundproofing assembly

Protect from Elements

Ensure SONOpan is protected from elements during installation until the project is complete

Box In Electrical

Box in electrical outlets and pot lights with SONOpan & acoustical sealant for optimal sound blocking and soundproofing.

Outlets

NEVER install electrical outlets back to back. Maintain 30” spacing between outlets.
