In a kit you will receive cut parts of different exclusive soundproofing materials depending on your specific vehicle type. All parts are numbered which coincides with a fitting/instruction guide explaining where that part goes. If necessary the parts will have an adhesive layer which you simply peel the backing paper off to adhere.
Noisekiller kits are unique in that not one material simply covers the whole vehicle. Materials have been specially designed dependant on various factors to reduce the different types of unwanted vehicle noises. In a full kit you would normally receive at least 3 different types of soundproofing material.
No, we can supply part kits for different areas e.g. engine bay only, but the best sound proofing result is gained by fitting a full kit. You also receive a saving when purchasing a full kit as opposed to buying each section individually.
Our professional experienced installers can fit kits in 2 to 3 hours, so if you add 2 more hours max to fit yourself that would be ample.
Some vehicles have a black cover clipped onto the bonnet lid. This cover isn’t soundproofing and is designed to stop your bonnet lid from discolouring. Our NoiseKiller Vibrasorb material adheres to the single skin areas on your bonnet lid. You can then replace this black cover afterwards if you wish.
No extra adhesives/fixings are needed when you purchase a kit. If any part is designed to be stuck, it will have a strong adhesive layer.
An engine blanket is a product designed to get as close as possible to the noise source (i.e. the engine!) to reduce the sound immediately. It comprises of a layer of lead, inside two layers of open cell acoustic foam with a high temperature fortaglass outer material capable of withstanding temperatures of up to 350⁰. Brass eyelets are inserted in all four corners and releasable cable ties supplied for fixing in position.
NO, you do not enclose the engine inside a blanket. The Blanket is designed to be carefully positioned to deflect and absorb different noises above the engine and behind (bulkhead area) only. Once fitted, there is still plenty of air flow around the engine and the blanket does not restrict any of the engines cooling systems.
As manufactures strive to offer better fuel economy cars are being made lighter by using thinner metal in particular under the spare wheel and rear wheel arches. Thinner metal creates more vibrations than the older steel meaning more noise. Also as most cars are now mainly hatchback types this means the noise enters the interior of your vehicle rather than being contained in the boot area as was the case in older model boot type cars.
We can either offer a “cut, design and fit”, or alternatively, suggest which materials you will require and supply the correct amounts for you to cut and shape yourself.
NK don’t fit door pads on a factory fit or mobile fit unless other than older vans/motorhomes with manual window operation. Automatic windows in newer cars have numerous wires in this area and its too risky to fit the pads carefully. Some vehicles are also double skinned around the doors meaning you cant fit any material in this area anyway. We supply the door pads in a kit as a foc extra in case you want to ask your service guys to fit them or another expert at getting the door card off safely.
Most of our materials come in either 1m x 1.2m (half a sheet), or 2m x 1.2m (full sheet) sizes. All materials can easily be cut to shape using a Sharp Stanley knife on a firm surface.
The ultimate material for this area is the NoiseKiller Lead Sandwich. This material is best fitted when the engine is not in the vehicle for access purposes. NoiseKiller Barrier Mat is another option and can be used slightly easier when the engine is in situ.
Marine Ply allows most sound to transmit straight through, therefore it is essential that the best blocking material is used (lead!) By sandwiching the lead inside two layers of open cell acoustic foam ensures once blocked, the airborne sounds are then absorbed.
Yes certainly, we can design and manufacture many different types of soundproofing solutions.
Yes all our soundproofing solutions can be supplied with the correct fire and Health & Safety at work documents.
WD-40’s air to inhibitor ratio is embarrassing compared to CorrosionX.
No its an excellent lubricant! As well as being a rust preventer, Corrosion Inhibitor, wet protector and metal cleaner!
All our welding blankets/curtains are manufactured using Weldstop™ material and the maximum temperature is up to 1500⁰
All NK Thermal Fire Blankets and containers fully conform to the requirements of BS EN 1869:1997 and are manufactured under the trademark COVERSAFE.
Yes pretty much! The Clutch Claw will fit virtually all LCVs, (Ford Transits, Fiat Ducato’s, Peugeot Boxers etc.) Land Rover’s, 4 x 4s and cars that have at least 75mm of pedal bar showing below the dash.
Yes any lock can be made keyed alike to fit all your required security posts.
The outside is approx. 310 wide x 400 length. Inside is designed to fit A4 sized documents (approx. 3 magazines will fit inside).
Certainly! Any special size can be made to suit your requirement. Prices will have to be quoted to spec but can be based on the current small and large options.
Noise can be measured when the noise source is at a constant level, and thus measurements can be taken before and after sound proofing has been completed. However when the source of the noise can be increased or decreased e.g. a car – then the readings taken cannot apply to all the various speeds the car can be driven at, also differing road surfaces can alter noise levels.
Yes each of our products has been tested in a standard noise situation and the results can be found on our materials page.
Yes, NoiseKiller materials applied to walls in domestic situations have thermal properties as well as noise reduction. In Land Rover Sound Proofing using NoiseKiller on the sides and roof helps reduce condensation. When converting a van to a living vehicle then using the correct materials will give both thermal and noise protection.
Stocked items* will normally be despatched in 1-2 days of cleared payment. Main Land UK Items will be sent using City Link next day service (Max. Parcel weight is 30kg)
(* = Stocked items include all materials, engine blankets, liquid, corrosion X, clutch claws and security posts)
Soundproofing Kits can take up to 7-10 working days dependant on the work load at time of order.
However, we try wherever possible to work around your schedule, and if you’re in a hurry for the goods please mention when ordering and we can see what can be done.
Noisy Neighbours No More
Up to 100% could be as little as 1% ! No one can guarantee a noise reduction as there are uncontrollable factors (i.e. you can never control how loud a neighbour may increase the volume button on a stereo) We can assess, explain and estimate a reduction you will be likely to receive as each job is different.
You will only lose 41mm or less that 1 3/4” (10mm soundproofing material + 18mm batten + 12.5 acoustic plasterboard)
It normally takes us a one day to complete one wall (up to approx. 10 square meters or 107.5 square feet)
No, the last thing we would want is for your neighbour to know what we are doing so all work is undertaken with that discretion in mind. We also dont have any marked vans!
The certificate is another con some other companies provide. There are no British standards for this type of bespoke work. You can purely show your invoice to any future buyers of your property as proof of the work done.
All our products have been tested and we can present to you a live demo of our system that highlights the noise reduction. We also have 10 years experience and customer testimonials to show previous happy customers.
No, our material will adhere over the top so there’s no need to waste time stripping wall paper.
