ORLANDO, FL, December 13, 2012 - Acoustiblok exhibited the company’s line of sound reduction materials this week at the 2012 POWER-GEN International Show being held in Orlando, FL on December 11-13, 2012.
POWER-GEN International is the industry leader in providing comprehensive coverage of the trends, technologies and issues facing the generation sector. More than 1,200 companies from all sectors of the industry exhibit each year to benefit from the exposure to 20,000 attendees. Displaying a wide variety of products and services, POWER-GEN International represents a horizontal look at the industry with key emphasis on new solutions and innovations for the future.
Generator noise is a growing problem everywhere, especially in residential neighborhoods, where multiple units can be running at once after a storm or power outage. This is the type of noise that contributes to noise pollution and the health risks that go along with it. People are becoming more proactive about creating a quiet environment, especially at home.
Acoustiblok All Weather Sound Panels® are engineered specifically to withstand the most rigorous outdoor and industrial environments. Water, moisture, humid salt air or salt water, dirt, dust, constant ultraviolet light, chlorine air, grease, corrosion, and most harsh chemicals are not a problem for this wonderful product. The hurricane All Weather Sound Panel is tested to withstand wind load more than 270 MPH.
Acousitblok’s QuietFiber® is the answer to any space in need of a noise fix that is easy to install anywhere noise is a problem, without spending thousands of dollars to retrofit sound abatement material under drywall, or cover walls with expensive sound panels.
Acoustiblok’s QuietFiber® is UL fire rated for floor, wall and ceiling applications, a significant safety factor when compared to common insulating materials – usually highly flammable -- often used in an attempt to reduce sound.
Acoustiblok sound reduction material is made of a 1/8-inch (3 mm) thick proprietary viscoelastic polymer material with a high-density, non-barium mineral content, heavy yet extremely flexible. It is easily cut to fit with a utility knife, which makes it customizable to fit around pipes and other fixtures. Just one thin layer of Acoustiblok added to a standard metal or wood stud wall will result in more sound reduction - and provide more privacy - than 12-inches (30.5 cm) of poured concrete.
About Acoustiblok All Weather Sound Panels®:
Acoustiblok, a NASA “Spin-off” company, developed the All Weather Sound Panels, engineered specifically to withstand the most rigorous outdoor and industrial environments. Water, moisture, humid salt air or salt water, dirt, dust, UV, chlorine air, corrosion, and most harsh chemicals do not affect them. The industrial sound panels are available with an acoustically transparent five micron stainless steel dust filter for outdoor use in the world’s toughest environments, from the mining industry to the desert areas of the Middle East, and other applications where dust is a concern. Acoustiblok sound panels are extremely durable and are currently in use by the United States Army in the Middle East.
Washable, durable, long lasting and usable in hundreds of areas and applications, the Acoustiblok All Weather Sound Panels are not just "sound absorbing" but also "sound blocking." This allows the panel to not only absorb sound but also stop the sound from penetrating through the panel, a very meaningful advantage over conventional "sound absorbing" panels that stop sound reflections but are poor sound barriers.
With an unprecedented noise reduction coefficient (NRC) of 1.00 (Riverbank Acoustical Laboratories test results), they are the only noise barrier wind-load tested to 270 mph. Rigid and self-supporting, they can be used like building blocks to permanently or temporarily enclose any noise source, such as chillers and industrial machinery.
