Kinetics also develops custom products for customer's individual needs. With state-of-the-art engineering, Kinetics provides the optimum solution to the client's sound and vibration problems.
The key to Kinetics' successful problem-solving ability is largely due to their highly skilled professionals in the fields of physics, engineering and architecture.
Vibration Isolation: Floor Mounted Isolation, Suspended Vibration Isolation, Precision Vibration Isolation, Rooftop Equipment Isolation Curbs.
Architectural Noise Separation and Sound Isolation: Floating Floor Systems, Wall Isolation Systems, Sound Rated Floor Systems, Ceiling Isolation Systems.
Industrial Systems: Noise levels have been reduced by 30 decibels by the application of products such as Curtains, Barriers, Baffles and Damping Materials.
Precision Isolation: Protect sensitive equipment such as Robotic workstations, simulation and test equipment from vibration-hostile environments.
Geometric Ceiling and Wall Sound Diffusers: Kinetics Geometric Sound Diffusers are utilized where sound quality and consistency within a room are critical to its function. The barrel or pyramidal shape helps break up direct line of sight sound reflections and disburses them more evenly throughout the listening area. Geometric Diffusers are commonly used in conjunction with Kinetics acoustical panels. The combination of sound diffusion and absorption greatly improves the room acoustics.
Acoustical Wall and Ceiling Panels: Design Series 90 features a unique, patented, honeycomb core which traps sound in thousands of acoustically engineered air cells.
Seismic Restraints: Floor Mounted Seismic Restraints and Cable Restraints
Home Theater: Use Pressure Zone Home Theate Absorption Kits, and Hardside Custom Cut Panels to ensure a quality home theater experience
Pro Theater: Cinema Series and Hardside Acoustical Panels can provide the perfect pro theater setup.
Vibron Products Group
