Re: Smoke-proofing and sound-proofing from neighbours in condo

Sell! Really they built a ton of shit in that city; unfortunately it seems your unit happens to be one.

Go to a home improvement store and get some light switch draft gaskets (a thin foam gasket the same size as a typical cover plate) it should seal out much of the smoke. You could also pick up a small back of fibreglass insulation and stuff it into the opening, it might reduce some of the sound, though the entire wall should have been done (and built as a fire wall).

EDIT the wall might last 30 min, but the plastic cover plates sure as hell are not durring a fire.
