Flexible Vinyl Noise Barriers

Flexible Vinyl Noise Barriers

Industrial noise control barriers are loaded vinyl barriers that combine mass, flexibility, and limpness to block noise from transmitting from one area to another. They are available clear, non-reinforced, and reinforced in a variety of weights and styles to meet a multitude of applications.

Non-reinforced vinyl noise barriers are most commonly used to reduce sound transmission between wall and ceiling partitions. They work by adding additional mass as well as diaphragmatic absorption thus increasing the Sound Transmission Class (STC) of the partition. Non-reinforced vinyl noise barriers are also used as the blocking component in barrier septum composites, pipe and duct lagging, and short-term barrier walls.

Reinforced vinyl noise barriers are typically used in applications requiring high tensile, breaking, and tear strength, as well as excellent UV and weather resistance such as in long term exterior sound walls. Reinforced vinyl noise barrier is also used as the blocking component in barrier backed composites. When used in conjunction with a quilted fiberglass absorber, STC ratings of up to 32 can be achieved.

Specialty vinyl noise barriers include a marine barrier which is a 1PSF barrier material with a woven fiberglass cloth facing. Marine barrier offers superior fire ratings when installed against bulkheads, etc. Where radiation or RF resistance is required in addition to noise reduction, a 1PSF lead sheet is used as a septum with a fiberglass absorber/decoupler on both sides.
 
NON-REINFORCED BARRIERS:

  • Low-cost, often used between drywall and stud construction to substantially improve transmission loss between rooms.
  • Available in 1PSF and 2PSF density
  • Used as the barrier septum material in acoustical curtains
  • Used as a noise barrier typically in conjunction with a fiberglass decoupler
  • Used with foil backing as an economical pipe and duct wrap
  • Available in 54” wide x 30’ or 60’ long rolls
  • Used in industrial, commercial, construction, residential and OEM applications
  • Limp, flexible, formable, versatile

 
REINFORCED BARRIERS:

  • Reinforced barriers have excellent UV and weather resistance
  • Available in 1PSF and 2PSF density
  • Available in 54” wide x 30’ or 60’ long rolls
  • High-strength polyester fabric reinforcement is utilized in the center of the barrier to dramatically improve its durability, tear and hanging strength
  • Used in industrial, commercial, construction, residential and OEM applications
  • Used in the fabrication of barrier backed composites in the manufacturing of acoustic enclosures, barriers, and exterior sound walls.
  • Available in gray, tan, and blue

 
CLEAR VINYL BARRIERS:

  • Flexible transparent barrier materials offer significant noise reduction while allowing for visibility and easy access
  • Utilized to reduce heat and cold loss between areas
  • Sheet material is often utilized as a view window in acoustical curtain panels
  • Clear vinyl strip doors are often incorporated into acoustical curtain enclosures for easy access
  • Mounting angles and hardware available
  • Available in rolls 48” Wide x 60” Long or strips 16” Wide x 100’Long, 12” Wide x 200’ Long, and 8” Wide x 300’ Long
