TAMPA, Florida, November 5, 2012, 2012 – Tampa-based Acoustiblok, Inc. has donated its noise reducing Acoustiblok Wallcover® material to the Bellewood Home for Children in Anchorage Kentucky, to block noise from the campus’s multi-machine laundry room from passing through a common wall and into the facility’s therapy room. Installation of the Acoustiblok Wallcover effectively reduced noise in the therapy room by 10 decibels, which translates to a perceived volume reduction of 50 percent.

The donated Acoustiblok Wallcover was installed last week as part of a large-scale project to restore and improve the facility’s five residential cottages, recreational areas and common buildings, and to improve safety and enhance Bellewood Home’s village setting.

For 163 years, Bellewood Home has provided a safe haven for thousands of abused, neglected and homeless children from across Kentucky.

Lahnie Johnson, President and Founder of Acoustiblok, Inc., says he is proud that the company was able to contribute the noise blocking qualities of Acoustiblok Wallcover to the ambitious renovation project at Bellewood.

“When you have noise from commercial machines such as those in the facility’s laundry room passing through a common wall into the therapy room, it can be detrimental to the children’s therapeutic or remedial treatments,” Johnson says. “Noise is known to cause a myriad of problems in therapeutic settings, including stress, inability to focus, and other problems.

“This is a wonderful use of Acoustiblok Wallcover, and the community volunteers on the Bellewood renovation project were able to use it because it could be installed directly over the existing drywall, so no demolition or costly construction process was required.”

About Acoustiblok:

Acoustiblok, Inc., a NASA spin-off company, has been providing high quality noise abatement products since 1998, earning 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 transformed into inaudible trace amounts of heat (adiabatic).

Just one, 1/8-inch layer of Acoustiblok in a standard wall can result in more sound reduction than 12-inches of poured concrete. Environmentally friendly, Acoustiblok contains no lead, barium, or asbestos, is UV resistant and impervious to water and mold; it is UL rated and classified in the US and Canada (CUL) for virtually all wall, floor, and ceiling installations.

Acoustiblok Named “Best Practice” by Hubspot Internet Marketing

Posted by Liz Ernst on Tue, Jan 24, 2012 @ 01:07 PM

Hubspot,

TAMPA, Florida, January 19, 2012 -- Eighteen months after adopting Hubspot’s all-in-one marketing platform, Tampa, Florida-based Acoustiblok has increased website traffic by 210 percent, increased organic search leads by 307 percent, and increased customer transactions by 40 percent, contributing to Acoustiblok’s record sales increases in 2011.

Hubspot named Acoustiblok a “Best Practice” customer based on its application of Hubspot marketing tools for website management, blogging, search engine optimization (SEO), lead management, marketing analytics, social media monitoring, and website analysis.

“Being recognized by an industry leader as a “best practice” customer is a real accomplishment, and one we’ve worked hard to achieve,” said Liz Ernst, director of public relations for Acoustiblok, Inc. “We have a small marketing and PR team, and we had been trying different approaches to increasing traffic and drawing attention to our Acoustiblok soundproofing product line, and our Thermablok aerogel insulating strips.

“Hubspot gave us some serious one-on-one attention and guidance to understand where to best devote our efforts for the greatest return on our marketing and PR campaigns.”

Acoustiblok President and Founder Lahnie Johnson says that Hubspot provided the traffic building tools he had been looking for in order to achieve the huge growth goals the company had set for itself.

"We knew we had to get more web traffic, and that more traffic would equate to more leads,” Johnson said. “We were able to use the HubSpot software to help us with our traffic building initiatives, and our leads increased dramatically as our traffic increased.”

HubSpot, Inc., based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, provides an all-in-one marketing software platform used by more than 5000 companies in 34 countries. HubSpot is also the developer of WebsiteGrader.com, a website analysis tool with more than 3 million users. HubSpot, Inc. was founded in 2006.

Acoustiblok, Inc. Launches Quiet-Cloud® Industrial Sound Absorbing Panels

Posted by Liz Ernst on Wed, Nov 30, 2011 @ 10:23 AM

TAMPA, Florida, November 30, 2011 – Acoustiblok, Inc., a NASA spinoff company, this week announced its launch of Quiet-Cloud, the newest product in its arsenal of sound abatement products developed to combat noise pollution and avoid costly OSHA penalties.

Specifically designed to address serious noise levels common in industrial settings, the 4-foot by 8-foot Quiet-Cloud sound absorbing panels absorb more than twice the amount of noise that conventional panels take in, and at the same time block noise within the industrial plant environment. Quiet-Cloud provides maximum noise absorption and the highest NRC ratings attainable.

A lightweight, easily moveable panel that, when properly staggered can increase the perimeter-to-surface absorption area up to five-fold, each Quiet-Cloud panel consists of a heavy gauge perforated aluminum casing over a hydrophobic, sound absorbing material that can withstand operating temperatures up to 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit.

In settings where finite dust particles are a consideration, Quiet-Cloud panels are available with a standard steel mesh micro filter.

Ordered to hang horizontally or vertically, the washable Quiet-Cloud panels can also be easily installed in a standard ceiling tile grid.

Acoustiblok Founder and President Lahnie Johnson says the addition of Quiet-Cloud to the company’s growing catalog of soundproofing products affirms the company’s ongoing commitment to developing new ways to combat noise pollution.

“We are proud of our track record when it comes to addressing and reducing noise in a variety of settings,” Johnson said. “Unchecked industrial noise is hazardous to the hearing and health of workers and staff exposed to it every day, as well as those of us exposed to it in the course of our everyday lives.

“Noise in the workplace is frequently related to accidents and reduced productivity. Quiet-Cloud resolves industrial noise responsibly and affordably, and can be easily adapted to any setting.”
