For almost 50 years, Kinetics Noise Control has been designing products to control sound and vibration. Established in 1958 as engineers focusing on sound and vibration control, Kinetics pioneered development of pre-compressed, molded fiberglass pad isolators that would be incorporated into an innovative new floor isolation system.
Since the company's inception, Kinetics has focused on engineering some of the most innovative products to address vibration, noise control, and seismic issues over a wide range of applications.
Noteworthy projects that have involved Kinetics products and designs include:
• Albert Hall (London): Acoustic Panel Retrofit
• Dallas Convention Center (TX): Whole Building Isolation above active rail lines
• H&H Ballroom (Oscar Award Theater) (CA): Acoustic Noise Separation - Floor Isolation
• New York Mercantile Exchange (NY): Interior Acoustic Treatment
• NPR Washington Studios (DC): Acoustic Separation - Floor/Wall Isolation
• Walt Disney Memorial Concert Hall (CA): Seismically Rated Interior Acoustic Envelope
• Washington Subway system (DC): Track Bed Isolation

Interior Finish Acoustical Products
PRODUCTTRADE NAMEDESCRIPTIONCONTENTMatch your interior design with superior acoustics that block and absorb noise using our sound absorptive or reflective wall and ceiling panels, and our acoustical diffusers, baffles and cloud panels.The traditional acoustical wall panel, HardSide offers design versatility. A variety of shaped edges and panel thicknesses allow you to design for the desired appearance and acoustics. The perfect solution for many reverberant noise problems this panel offers superior performance in both wall and ceiling applications.Designed for large spaces requiring improved sound directivity, strength, and timing of reflections from the ceiling area, Ovation Reflector Panels create superior acoustics in auditoriums, lecture halls, and performing arts centers.The shaped surfaces of Kinetics' Geometric Diffusers break up direct sound reflections and disburse them evenly throughout the listening space. Kinetics' Geometric Diffusers are perfect for band and choral rehearsal rooms and performance spaces.These attractive panels are designed using quadratic theory to create a series of channels of varying depths in the sound reflecting hardwood surfaces. The result is acoustical diffusion in high frequencies and control of unwanted flutter echo.PAB baffles are constructed from a 1-1/2 in. thick fiberglass core encased in a rigid, lightweight PVC frame. The fiberglass provides exceptional sound absorption while the spline-and-groove fabric attachment at the frame allows for easy replacement of the fabric covering, if damaged. Fully tailored corners give this baffle an attractive finished look.
PRODUCTTRADE NAMEDESCRIPTIONCONTENTAchieve substantial noise reduction in airborne and structure borne sound with Kinetics sound tested and field proven isolation systems for Walls, Ceilings, and Structural Elements.Kinetics concrete floating floor systems, high performance floated wood and composite floor systems, and continuous sound control underlayments minimize airborne and impact-generated sound transmission through a floor/ceiling assembly. Our sound control isolation systems building code requirements for IIC (Impact Insulation Class) and STC (Sound Transmission Class) and minimize occupant complaints.Improve the Sound Transmission Loss (TL) of your floor/ceiling system for airborne or floor impact-generated noise with Kinetics Sound Control Ceilings. Our IsoMax Isolation Clips or spring, neoprene or fiberglass hangers support steel grid and gypsum board ceilings to help achieve complete acoustical privacy.Achieve higher STC (Sound Transmission Class) ratings, then typical stud wall construction, in a single-wall assembly with Kinetics contractor friendly, resilient isolation elements.Kinetics highly effective, low profile, sound control isolation clip is cost efficient, and quick and easy to install with standard drywall furring channels. The IsoMax design also eliminates the common problem of hard attaching that occurs in resilient channel installation.
Industrial/Environmental Noise Control
PRODUCTTRADE NAMEDESCRIPTIONCONTENTReduce noise levels, control airborne noise and structure-borne vibration within manufacturing utility and waste water treatment facilities through the use of curtains, barriers, baffles and vibration isolation.Modular reinforced limp mass vinyl panels or vinyl and quilted fiberglass composites designed to contain noise or to act as a movable barrier between noisy and quiet areas. Our systems incorporate a self-supporting track that allows the curtain to open for access at virtually any point along the enclosure.Highly efficient, highly durable Kinetics sound absorbers are functional and aesthetically pleasing. Kinetics sound absorbers are used to control reverberant noise problems and lower reflected sound over a broad frequency spectrumDesigned for indoor or outdoor use, Kinetics Barrier Materials are used for enclosing noise sources or lagged to piping, ductwork or equipment housings reducing sound transmission. Kinetics Model KNM-10OALQ pipe/duct lag material meets Class 1 requirements for smoke development and flame spread when properly installed.To meet safety and economic requirements and to help solve many in-plant noise problems, we manufacture a complete line of acoustical panels that can be quickly and easily assembled to provide complete or partial enclosures for noisy equipment or to provide a quiet office in a manufacturing area.Unwanted noise can cause stress related illness and severe noise can cause hearing damage. To help combat these problems, Kinetics manufactures a complete line of acoustical panels called Noiseblock Barrier Panels. These panels can be quickly and easily assembled to provide complete or partial walls for utilities, transportation/highways, cooling towers, chillers, condensers, rooftop equipment and residential noise barriers.
