Mac Cooper director of marine engineering for Acoustiblok

Acoustiblok, a leader in indoor and outdoor sound abatement and noise barrier solutions for more than a decade has named Mac Cooper to oversee and offer expert consultation on the marine application division of the company’s sound deadening products.

TAMPA, Florida, July 11, 2011 -- Acoustiblok President and founder Lahnie Johnson has named Mac Cooper Director of Marine Engineering. Cooper will be responsible for developing and overseeing Acoustiblok’s and Thermablok’s growing marine applications division, particularly providing innovative solutions to noise and thermal problems for boat owners and builders.

Cooper, a native of Nashville, Tennessee, has been a resident of Tampa since 2004. Prior to joining the Acoustiblok team, Cooper is the owner and designer for Dream Line Yacht / Product Design in St. Petersburg, Florida from 2008 to 2011, and an engineer/designer for Lazzara Yachts in Tampa from 2004 to 2008.

Cooper earned a bachelor’s degree in Industrial / Product Design, from Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, Georgia. 

Acoustiblok’s quality noise abatement products, available internationally since 1998, have earned the industry’s highest ratings from architects, builders and consumers.  

About Acoustiblok:                                                                                                                                         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 transformed into inaudible friction energy.

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, asbestos, or barium, is UV resistant and impervious to water and mold.

Acoustiblok is UL classified, recognized, and sold in more than 50 countries. Acoustiblok received first place product awards from the British House of Commons, and was named Builder News Magazine’s Product of the Year. The company was named in NASA’s annual list of top 49 Spin-Off companies for its use of aerogel technology in its Thermablok insulating strips.
