Sorbothane Vibration Isolation Circular Pad / Discs

Product Review (submitted on December 11, 2017):
Used these to isolate the garage door opener and reduce noise transmitted into the rest of the house. Works pretty well for that...when we had the house built I didn't know much about sound reduction strategies, but since I have become more aware of how important they are to a house. I didn't know this when we built, but a lot of noises in the home are transmitted through the structure, not through the air. Reducing unnecessary noise makes the house seem more solid, and just make the place more comfortable. My home office is directly above the garage. The doors make a moderate amount of noise as originally installed, and this reduces the noise to a much more tolerable level. I punched a hole into each and slipped them between the angle iron holder the opener and the ceiling, and another over the lag bolt head before replacing the bolt. There is still a little bit of noise transmitted to the house framing through the bolt, but much less than before. I'm thinking about adding more to the garage door track to see what while happen. Not that the noise is a huge problem, but now I want to see how quiet things can be made if I go all out.
