"Soundshield" is by Knauf. Density info is:
12.5mm = 12kg/m2
15mm = 13.8kg/m2

Anything above 10kg/m2 works well for acoustic treatments.

Question
Which side of a stud partition?
I'm thinking of using the acoustic board on a stud partition wall to make an ensuite in my bedroom. Is the board best on the inside (ensuite) or the outside (bedroom). If inside, can it take ceramic tiles direct?

We suggest fitting the soundboard on the outer wall, just because you will require a moisture resistant Plasterboard in your ensuite for obvious reasons.

We would recommend using either our Mositureshield Tapered Edge (Product Code 190540) or any of our Aquapanels (Product Codes 224658 and 220561) Both listed above are designed to be used in area where there is more than the usual level of humidity.

Question
What level of sound reduction should I expect from adding 2 x layers directly to an existing brick party wall?
Due to limited space (~28mm) between the wall and window, I don't have the option of using resiliant bar or building a room within a room etc.

If I add 2 x layers of Soundshield board directly to the wall, what level of sound attenuation would I expect?

Also, could I simply bond these boards to the wall using 'No More Nails' or similar? The wall already has a layer of plasterboard, skimmed over, I believe.

Yes it will transfer sound through the wall. I recently soundproofed a wall with Wicks High Density wall Insulation and screwed lots of screws to the wall and then put up ordinary plasterboard. It hasn't made any difference in that particular room infact probably made it worse. However, the other walls in the house I used it on its worked to some extent. (can hear shouting but not the general conservations and TV. Can hear loud music and bangs and running up and down) - I blame the terraced houses that were poorly built.

We would not suggest using the 'Dot and Dab' method. We would suggest removing the old plaster or using a mechanical method of fixing such as plasterboard screws.
