How Celebs create the perfect sleep chamber. A few celebrities mastered their perfect sleeping environment.
The rapper Enimen uses tin foil to cover the windows in his bedroom. He also likes to fall asleep to the sound of white noise playing on the television.
Actor Tom Cruise built a "snoratorium" in the back of his house. This sound-proof chamber allows him to snore as loud as he wants. (his girlfriends would be very thankful)
Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps sleeps in a unique environment. His sleep chamber uses air like the latitudes at 8000-9000 feet. This forces his body to work hard and provides more oxygen to his muscles (his body never gets a break!)

Fremantle Float..... It's likely to be the most relaxing thing you've ever experienced. Before Xmas Quash soundproofed the doors in the lovely Fremantle Float. Then we were lucky enough to go and experience the float ourselves. What a beautiful experience of inner peace. Give them a call and try it out.

I wanted the best way to tell my neighbour that he tried it with his late night party. So I wrote him a letter and baked him a cake. While a noisy neighbour will typically bring out the worst in us (there’s a reason so many sitcoms feature characters banging a ceiling with a broomstick), writer Candice Marie Benbow took the high road — and it paid off. She recently shared on Twitter an image of a letter she penned to her downstairs neighbour,Tommy, who had a tendency to blast music until four in the morning. “We haven’t formally met and I hate we’re doing so under these circumstances,” the letter begins. She goes on to explain that she expects him to come home and blast music, and she is somewhat appreciative of his dedication to “throwback” classics. Other times, she Googles lyrics and adds it to her own playlist. “To be fair, you’ve helped me catch a vibe.” However, when the loud music continued well into the morning hours, she wrote “Last night … Fam, you tried it. You really, really did.” Although Benbow was complaining about the outlandish choice of loud techno music to lull one to sleep (or rev up the party), she chose to approach it with kindness, instead of passive-aggressiveness like many are wont to do. And the updates did not disappoint. So why does Benbow’s neighbour Tommy blast his music daily in the first place? He’s a music video producer. “EVERYTHING makes sense now,” she tweeted. On top of that, Benbow learned that Tommy was experiencing his first holiday without his daughter, who died in a car accident. “It was a sweet and gentle reminder that we never know what folks are going through and it is always best to lead with kindness. When we can extend grace, we really should,” she wrote. Aww, let’s get this movie made! ... See MoreSee Less
Blue Oval says prototype kennel uses the same Ford noise-cancelling tech that was developed for the Endura SUV. Ford has switched from car-making to creating an innovative noise-cancelling dog kennel that will ensure your pooch has a peaceful New Year’s Eve. Designed specifically for the 45 per cent of all dogs that have been scientifically proven to show signs of stress and anxiety when they hear fireworks, the new Ford dog kennel is claimed to use technology originally created for cars like the Edge/Endura SUV that went on sale in Australia this month. The quiet kennel works by using noise-cancelling technology, sound-proofing and an automatic door. ... See MoreSee Less
White, Pink, and Brown Noise: What’s the difference?
If you’re someone who has trouble sleeping, somebody has probably already suggested white noise to you. For better or worse, our brains continue to process sensory stimuli when we’re asleep, meaning that our partner’s snoring, dog’s barking, and even our leaky sinks can easily make us casualties of restless nights. The reason why noises wake us up at night is not exactly because of the noise itself, but rather the sudden change in noise. White noise works by masking these changes and allowing our brains the benefit of a more consistent sonic environment. White noise, probably the most familiar of these, sounds like a radio tuned to an unused frequency. Similar to the way white light contains all the wavelengths of the visible spectrum at equal intensity, white noise has equal power across all frequencies audible to the human ear. Pink noise is white noise, but with reduced higher frequencies. It resembles the sounds of steady rainfall or wind and is often considered to be more soothing than white noise, which some people find unpleasant. Several studies on pink noise have shown that sleeping with it can improve our memories the following day, and potentially even long-term. Brown noise lowers the higher frequencies even more. It’s a bit “rougher” than pink noise and resembles the roar of a river current or strong wind. Common benefits associated with brown noise are relaxation, improved focus, and of course, sleep improvement. ... See MoreSee Less
AIRCRAFT NOISE POLLUTION Living beneath a flight path is truly bothersome. Whether it’s keeping you awake at night, or annoying you throughout the day, you could set your watch to the sounds of jet engines blaring overhead – but why would you want to? THE HEALTH EFFECTS Living too close a proximity to a runway can lead to serious damage to your hearing over the course of even a few hours, let alone a few months. Additionally, excessive exposure to noise pollution from aircraft has been proven to cause hypertension and significantly increase your chance of developing cardiovascular diseases, as well as decreased productivity and impaired learning.
This has been proven to have an impact on children, whose memory and capacity to learn can be hampered by continuous exposure to disturbing noise levels. WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT HOW SOUNDPROOF WINDOWS ARE DESIGNED TO COMBAT NOISE COMPLAINTS? CALL QUASH TODAY ... See MoreSee Less
