Industrial Facilities - The first and most important reason to control these noisy environments is for the safety of the workers and management at the sites. If workers misinterpret a directive, or are unsure of directions, an injury is imminent.
The next issue is productivity; it is medically proven that the human body is adversely affected by long durations of extreme sound pressure or noise. Our nervous systems cannot handle the stress this type of fatigue causes. If a worker is stressed, or fatigued, he is more likely to make a mistake or not work up to his full potential.
The third area of concern is surrounding residential areas. The noise from a facility twenty-four hours a day could and would drive someone crazy. If the noise level is too high in surrounding communities, they will complain and get the government involved. If this happens, it may also cause shut downs, and lack of productivity. At the end of the day, all of the above scenarios spell loss of revenue!
Acoustiblok is a U.L. Classified (UL # CLBV.R21490), viscoelastic polymer that comes in two forms. The first is Blok16, a 1/8th" thick sheet with a weight of 1 pound per square foot. The second is Blok32, a 1/4" thick sheet with a weight of 2 pounds per square foot. Both are made from recycled plastics and non-toxic minerals that are mixed and pressed into a membrane sheet.
These sheets are then trimmed to a standard size of 54" wide x 30' long and rolled up for easy transportation. The rolls weigh roughly 135 pounds each at this size. You can also order longer rolls ranging from 60' long (at 270 lbs.), to 350' long (at 1,575 lbs.), should you have a project with a larger area in need of treatment.
AcoustiFence is a flexible material. This yields coincidental gains in attenuation at those specific frequencies where rigid barriers have strong deficiencies. As a result you will see much higher levels of performance using Acoustifence than you would using typical construction materials. This also means that Acoustifence is a great solution compared to a wooden fence or any other type of reflective barrier.
Our patented All Weather Sound Panels® give you high sound transmission loss coupled with high sound absorption, all in a weather resistant package. We engineered these incredibly durable and easily maintained panels specifically to resist the most rigorous industrial uses and outdoor environments.
The panels present an amazing profile of just 2". We produce them in four standard rectangular sizes, but can custom make them in any size, provided the shape is square or rectangular.
QuietFiber is specifically engineered to tackle the frequencies of sound that are critical for noise reduction. QuietFiber's Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC), ranges from 1.0- 1.25 depending on the version (Q2, Q4 or Q6). An NRC rating of 1.0 or higher means there are no reflections off of the material.
Any material with an NRC that is greater than 0.50 is considered to be sound absorbing. If the NRC is less than 0.20, the material is considered to be sound reflecting. If the material has an NRC rating of say 0.60, it would have about 40% reflections off of the material. As a result, NRC materials are typically used for reflection control in spaces with high Reflection or Reverb Times (RT's).
QC-2 is the model for our "Quiet-Cloud". We have created a high performance, sustainable and versatile solution for reflection build-up and reflection control. A sound panel that can withstand harsh environments while absorbing more sound/noise than most commercial and residential sound panels.
A reflective space can increase the overall volume of noise in that space exponentially! If a sound or noise is created in a space with lots of parallel-hard surfaces, the sound will linger for long periods of time. The problem is that if the sound or noise has a lot of intensity and goes on for long periods of time, sound/noise levels will get louder then the original source of the sound/noise itself. The only way to prevent this is to install materials that can absorb the sound/noise on the hard surfaces of the space. This brings us to our Quiet-Cloud, (QC-2).
Until the release of Acoustiblok Wallcover (AWC), there was no simple do-it-yourself (DIY) noise deadening or sound isolation solution with high performance that could be applied on top of an existing wall. AWC is like installing wallpaper! No dirty construction processes, no special permits from HOA's and it can be installed in a day. The most important aspect of AWC is that is has great performance as an enhancement to any pre-existing wall assembly. AWC has been laboratory tested and measured to give an STC53 when applied to a standard drywall/stud wall assembly, (like the typical wall in hotels, condo's, apartments, etc.).
AGT-60 is the model for a portion of our bonding system. This is a 2" wide tape with a proprietary adhesive that is formulated to maintain adhesion to our Blok 16 and Blok 32 isolation material. This is used in conjunction with our AC-10 and AC-28 Acousticaulk sealant. AGT-60 & Acousticaulk are required for an Acoustiblok sound reduction system installation.
PPD-7 is the model for our putty pads. They are essential in sealing off wall, ceiling and floor assemblies that have electrical penetrations. These moldable 7" x 7" pads are easily wrapped around the back of any electrical box before your assemblies gets closed up. They seal off any small air gapes as well as increasing the STC of the penetration.
AW325 & AW30MB are designed for use beneath hardwood, laminate, and engineered wood floors. Used for wood floor installations only, on concrete or wood sub-floors beneath Acoustiblok Blok16 & Blok32. AW-WF0.125 works to decouple and isolate the top floor surface from the subfloor. The 1/8" thick wool composite is lightweight, flexible and easy to work with. AW-WF0.125 is available with or without a moisture barrier laminated to the bottom. Both have an antimicrobial treatment to prevent mold growth, extremely resilient, sustainable, and won™t break down like the air pockets in foam types of underlayment.
TFO.11 is a unique blend and balance of 85% recycled fibers, creating an isolation underlayment to be coupled with Blok 16 & Blok 32. Specifically engineered to use beneath tile, marble and other rigid floor surfaces. The fibrous substrate has been treated with an antimicrobial treatment to prevent mold & mildew growth. Acoustiblok floor assemblies have been Robinson Floor tested and rated "Residential" by the Tile Council of North America.
Construction applications make up a large part of Acoustiblok's business. These applications range from commercial and industrial remediation to residential construction projects. Whether your noise problem is indoor or outdoor, there is an Acoustiblok product that will meet your needs.
Noisy roads, noisy bridges and noisy railways, the ever-growing population will only make this problem worse. As more and more transportation lanes open up they will most definitely encroach on our residential communities and work places. This means that more thought will need to be put into isolating these transportation corridors to make our communities livable. Acoustiblok can help at the conceptual stages of some of these projects and also at post construction stages. Our patented HAWSP's (Hurricane All Weather Sound Panels) and our AF-6 (Acoustifence) are great solutions to this ever-growing problem. We would love to hear from you should you have a transportation noise challenge that needs a resolve.
Acoustiblok has invested hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars over the years to test our products in various wall, and floor and ceiling assemblies. Acoustiblok, when installed properly, has delivered superior results when compared with untested and unrated assemblies available in the market. Because of Acoustiblok's proprietary formulation it is approved (classified) for more U.L. rated construction assemblies (over 300) than any other sound abatement product.
As a leading solution provider and manufacturer of noise attenuation materials, Acoustiblok offers the full range of services and products to solve noise and vibration issues, including problem identification, acoustical testing, design, engineering, installation support and post-installation testing to ensure that our materials are properly implemented and noise control objectives are achieved.The newest technology that we currently use is an acoustical real-time video imaging system. The ARTVIS allows us to see sound in real-time (as you would see thermal contours with an infrared camera). Not only can we measure the intensity and overall frequency content of the noise and its reflections, we can visually identify the direction, source and frequency spectrum of the noise.
