Quiet Solution Ships 1,000,000th QuietRock Panel to Joie de Vivre Hotels

SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Quiet Solution, the market and technology leader in soundproof drywall, announced today that it has shipped over 1,000,000 panels of QuietRock® soundproof drywall. QuietRock delivers high performance noise reduction at the lowest total cost which has helped Quiet Solution attain the leadership position in the industry with over 90% of product sales every year since the company pioneered the soundproof drywall category in 2002.

Joie de Vivre’s 197-room boutique Citizen Hotel in downtown Sacramento purchased the one-millionth panel. “QuietRock helps us deliver a quiet, restful, luxury experience,” said Brian Larson, managing director, the Citizen Hotel. “Soundproofing with QuietRock was less expensive than any other approach we looked at when you include materials and labor, and it will help us finish the project on time and on budget.”

Joie de Vivre used a variety of QuietRock panels at the Citizen, including QuietRock 525 and the new QuietRock DensArmor Plus 528, a highly mold- and moisture-resistant panel made in partnership with Georgia-Pacific. “QuietRock 525 allowed us to use fewer layers of gypsum board, while maintaining the desired STC ratings, thereby reducing labor costs. QuietRock 528 was ideal for sound walls that required a tile backer board,” said Todd Browning, district manager of Boyett Construction, Inc. of Rocklin, California. Using fewer layers also means the project uses less material and less energy – important green building objectives.

The project’s architect, Gary Murakami of VITAE Architecture, said “using QuietRock is a no-brainer.”

Acoustical Materials Services (AMS), one of Quiet Solution’s many authorized product dealers, is supplying QuietRock for the project. “Demand for effective – and cost-effective – soundproofing is soaring,” said Tom Fischbeck, vice president of sales, AMS. “We’re seeing fast growth in QuietRock sales on both commercial and residential projects.”

“The quest for quiet is stronger than ever,” said Steve Weiss, vice president of marketing, Quiet Solution. “We continue to be encouraged by the strong demand for our soundproofing solutions, and it’s an honor to be ringing in the one-millionth panel milestone with Joie de Vivre.”

Quiet Solution has 23 filed patents and produces over 25 Quiet®-brand products.

    Hi Dave, I've been a fan of your blog for awhile ever since I started researching soundproofing solutions and subscribed to your blog. I own a duplex and the bedrooms have a common wall. The noise was such a problem that I'm actually leaving one unit empty until I fix this problem. The walls are plaster and I was looking for something easy but really effective at soundproofing. I was thinking about putting a layer of quite rock on the wall of the empty unit and using green glue with it as well. Do you think this would be an effective solution or overkill? I assume this would be more economical than tearing down the wall and rebuilding it with quiet rock. What do you think? Thank-you

  2. I do not think you would see that much gain in STC with the products combined. Let say you QuietRock has a STC 52 and the Green Glue Wall has an STC 52. An example, If you combine the two you would not get an STC of 104, more like an STC of 56. Is it worth the extra cost for the a few extra points. You can also call the Green Glue company to see what they think at (866) 435-8893

    Hello Dave. We have a large game room below an open living room space. The living room has wood floors over a wood sub floor, and footsteps are really loud if you are standing below in the game room. I am interested in what would be the best soundproofing for the price, and I am currently considering Quiet Rock and/or Quiet Batt for the ceiling. Thanks in advance for your response.

  5. It is always best to soundproof from above. If that is not possible you could put wood or drywall with a layer of green glue directly up against the subfloor. The more layers the better, they seal it up with some QuietRock or 2 layers of drywall with green glue in between. Remember noise will still travel down the walls.
