Soundproofing Methods & Materials

Soundproofing is defined as making a room or building resistant to the passage of sound. There are several ways to accomplish this, including the use of dampening structures and placement of noise barriers to absorb or reflect sound waves. These methods work to accomplish improving the sounds within a room as well as reducing noise from adjacent rooms or outside. Manufacturing facilities, restaurants, schools, offices, and health care facilities commonly use architectural acoustics to reduce noise for the comfort of their patrons, customers, and workers. Soundproofing is crucial in these environments for aiding in comfort, worker focus, and protection of confidential conversations, and allowing facilities to meet OSHA requirements for safe noise exposure.

There are several products available which address a variety of soundproofing needs. Soundproofing curtains, sound barrier walls, soundproofing blankets, acoustic doors, and sound enclosures are some of the most common. Each provide a unique solution to a variety of acoustic challenges.

A Soundproofing Curtain offers maximum sound control and noise reduction using a combination of sound absorption and noise barrier material. Sound curtains are used in many industrial, commercial, and OEM noise control applications, and can accommodate ventilation and access while maintaining high noise control. The advantages of soundproofing curtains include ease of installation and mobility as machines or equipment are relocated. Our industrial grade sound curtains are modular, velcro sealed, and rugged.

Sound Barrier Walls are an engineered, modular panel system designed for outdoor soundproofing to control industrial or mechanical noise, HVAC noise, transportation noise, and other disturbing noises produced by chillers, air handling equipment, fans, transformers, compressors, etc.

A Soundproofing Blanket is a versatile and functional solution for ‘source’ noise control. Also called acoustic wraps, noise covers, or velcro sealed noise blankets, soundproofing blankets are completely removable and reusable. They are easy to install and effective for use outdoor soundproofing or in high heat environments. Construction sites use outdoor sound barrier blanket fences to help control noise at job sites where noise levels disrupt neighborhoods. The fencing material is a visual barrier as well as a sound barrier.

Sound-rated Acoustic Doors and Steel Sound Enclosures are highly effective means of noise control for industrial and mechanical equipment. Sound enclosures are engineered for superior noise control while allowing for easy access for both ventilation and maintenance, and can be custom engineered to be a workable solution to your noisy industrial equipment. Our Sound Enclosures are of modular steel construction with roll-formed “tongue and groove” connections, providing a simple and effective progressive construction of the enclosure.
