i'm interested in sound treatment. i see two
* isolation: extend the walls to reach the
ceiling. how to deal with pipes on the ceiling
and lights and power tracks? i say dismantle
lights and power tracks so there's no "train"
running through the dirty workshop space and
build the extensions up to the ceiling itself,
cutting around things that are tight to the
ceiling (e.g. electrical conduit, emergency
sprinkler pipes, probably good to install
dedicated pipes for data and possibly other
cables such as audio, 12VDC power...).
* baffling: install some kind(s) of sound
absorbant thing-ums to walls and ceilings to
reduce the resonance of banging and crashing
and buzzing and roaring.
-- easiest is probably to address very high
-- more difficult to address low-frequency
stuff, as low frequencies tend to propagate
mechanically (e.g. hammer stroke on anvil
travels through table legs through floor
throughout the rest of the space: attenuation
is partly a matter of breaking that path,
probably some kind of spongey thing between the
anvil base and the table top, maybe also some
kind of spongey thing between the table bottom
and the floor--i guess this example is isolation
rather than baffling).
i'm also interested in experimenting with
baffling in the main space to see if baffling
alone can help reduce sound transmission
between various areas of the main space.
