reduce noise level

I am looking for something to apply to the inside of my office door that is no longer used to block sound coming in from the factory. Would a thicker piece of blue board act as a sound (noise) blocker? Bill

Noise enters because of vibration, and the air waves passing through materials. Only way, would to build a box inside of the room. Placing foam board on the door is not going to do anything, especially in a factory. Every office that I have been in, inside a manufacturing plant, you can still hear the noise from the floor.


Ren: Now listen, Cadet. I've got a job for you. See this button? Ren: Don't touch it! It's the History Eraser button, you fool! Stimpy: So what'll happen? Ren: That's just it. We don't know. Maybe something bad, maybe something good. I guess we'll never know, 'cause you're going to guard it. You won't touch it, will you?
