Full Car Soundproofing Kits covers the following areas:
All engine bay parts use our waterproof Noise Killer Vibrasorb material. This is self adhesive with a damping sheet to reduce bonnet vibrations and an open cell Class “0” acoustic foam to absorb engine noise. The foil facing gives a wipe clean maintenance surface which also protects the bonnet lid against heat discolouring.
Interior of Vehicle
Noise Killer Sound Barrier are used under the carpets in the front and rear footwells inside the vehicle and along the side of the transmission tunnel. These pads help to reduce road and transmission noise as well as under body vibrations. A pad is placed under the rear seat to reduce exhaust noise and vibrations. NoiseKiller Barrier mat is provided in a rectangle pad form for the outer skin of the door card from the inside (these pads aren’t fitted by NK in any installation but are provided foc for the out and out enthusiast who wants to attempt this tricky area).
Noise Killer Barrier Mat is adhered to the rear wheel arches, the rear wings behind the trim, under the spare wheel, and the side walls of the spare wheel well.
A Noise Killer Sound Barrier is placed under the boot carpet to reduce the road and exhaust noises and body vibrations.
YOU WILL BE ASKED ABOUT YOUR VEHICLES MAKE/MODEL/YEAR WHEN IN THE PAYMENT CART.
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.
Stocked items* will normally be despatched in 1-2 days of cleared payment. Main Land UK Items will be sent using UK Mail next day service (Max. Parcel weight is 30kg)
(* = Stocked items include all materials, engine blankets, corrosion X, clutch claws and security posts)
Soundproofing Kits can take up to 7-10 working days dependent 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.
NK don’t fit door pads on a factory fit or mobile fit 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 d.i.y 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.
