Home Gym & Noisy Shed

Hi All

Finally got the shed up and finalised through the council just before Christmas . Under Oz new pool reg's some of my budget had to go to a new pool fence .I bought the glass fence kit from Frameless direct .

I'm looking at reducing some the noise/music level's coming out of the shed . Don't have the budget for complete sound proofing .looking at adding mass to the internal wall's.

The internal walls and ceiling joist will be isolated from the shed wall's & roof using steel studs & Joist. Concrete floor covered with 10mm pure rubber interlocking tiles 20kg/m2 .

Plaster wall combo options & area @ 122m2 .

2 layers of FireSheild 16mm , 26kg/m2 $2032.52 + Green Glue $2359.50 = $4392.02

3 layers of FireSheild 16mm , 39kg/m2 = $3048.78

External Shed dimensions, 8.5m L x 5.2m W x Roof Skillion 5 degrees 3m up to 3.44m

Theres 2 roller doors which will have bi-folds or stacker doors fitted on the outside latter on . Before framing starts I need to fit a therma barrier on the inside . The walss already have a 5mm honeycome barrier but its not enough .

  • Steel frame & joist render

    First job is to create a thermal barrier so its comfortable to be in the shed . I ended up going with DOW Tuff-R 25.4mm PIR board . This will be screwed/glued & taped in between the walls 65mm hat channels & colourbond walls using 40mm spacers. It will be screwed to the under side of the roof hat channels .Walls 40mm air cavity .ceiling 65mm air cavity. Walls/roof should calc out to a R4.5 combined with wall batts . http://msdssearch.dow.com/PublishedL...romPage=GetDoc Thermostruct supplied the DOW Tuff-R and will be suppling the Bradfords Soundscreen http://www.thermostruct.com.au/

    Ceiling joist are manufactered by http://www.spantec.com.au/ B150-12 , 5.1m long & bearer B200-16 3.5m long .

    Steel wall studs by https://www.rondo.com.au/ Waiting to hear back from a very helpful Rondo rep on what size wall ,either 64mm 1.15mbt or 76mm bmt ? bmt is base metal thickness

  • Hmm, nice work Mal! You'd make a great advisor to my partners neighbour, who's set up a commercial sheet metal factory in his garage.

  • Crikey :notworthy:

    The mind boggle at what full soundproofing would be. But I have a dumb question [cough] - how is that steel studs and joists provide sound isolation? I thought they would just transmit sound? :-P

    Steel studs are less able to transfer sound due to flex . But it all depends on gauge . The steel joist allowed me to go with a smaller dimensional size over timber & cheaper per L/M .

    Timber studs with resilient channel on timber studs should work out the same .

    All depends who's take on it you read http://www.soundproofingcompany.com/soundproofing-solutions/soundproofing-walls/

    Thinking of running 2 ethernet lines out to the shed ?

  • No need, unless you are worried about geckos eating through one of them.

  • Haven't done much ,due to a family illness . Fitted the sliding stacker doors ,bought 3mm alloy angle & flat bar to make new trims to go around the doors . IMG20180519162713

    Also built a concrete retaining wall . The sleepers are 2400mm x 200mm x 80mm the steel H sections are 100uc gal . IMG20180525132123 IMG20180525132146

    Need the wall up before the ag concrete goes down

    Cheers
