Overview: 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
Kinetics Noise Control is committed to help building professionals meet the exacting requirements of LEED certification. Many of our products can help contribute to LEED credits. Information based on LEED - NC v2.2 and LEED for schools 2007.
The perfect solution for reverberant noise problems, our acoustical panels offer superior performance in both wall and ceiling applications. Our selection of acoustical wall and ceiling panels offer a variety of options allowing you to design for the desired appearance and acoustics.
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.
Kinetics fabric faced or vinyl baffles, and HardSide and Appliqué Acoustical Cloud Panels offer unique ceiling suspended solutions to reverberant noise problems. We offer the perfect economical and acoustic solution for gymnasiums, arenas, natatoriums, multi-purpose, and other large or high ceiling spaces.
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.
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.
Reduce 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 spectrum
Designed 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.
