TAMPA, Fla. (USA), May 3, 2011 – Lahnie Johnson, president and founder of Acoustiblok, Inc., has named Paul Getts as the company’s newest sales associate.
Getts, a native of Fort Wayne, Indiana has lived in Florida for more than 30 years, and in Tampa for the past three years. Prior to joining the Acoustiblok sales team, Getts was a statewide outside sales rep for Tampa-based All Solar Power, and a factory rep for both Seabridge Bathing and Aquassure Bathing, which provide bathing products for the disabled.
Getts studied Art and Design at the Ringling College of Art and Design, and Delgado Community College in New Orleans.
Acoustiblok’s quality noise abatement products, available internationally since 1998, have earned the industry’s highest ratings from architects, builders and consumers. Acoustiblok is a proprietary viscoelastic polymer material with a high density mineral content, heavy and yet extremely flexible. As sound waves cause the Acoustiblok material to flex, internal friction occurs and the acoustical energy is dissipated into undetectable trace amounts of heat.
Just one, 1/8- inch layer of Acoustiblok in a standard wall will result in more sound reduction than 12-inches of poured concrete. Environmentally friendly, Acoustiblok contains no lead or asbestos, is UV resistant and impervious to water and mold.
Acoustiblok is UL rated and classified for virtually all wall, floor and ceiling installations. Acoustiblok was named Builder News Magazine’s 2009 Product of the Year.
