Noise Expert has started providing acoustical products. They provide them, deliver them and can install them. They are focusing on four different products:
- acoustic wall panels
- loaded vinyl
- fiberglass absorption
- metal barriers/absorption
NE Acoustic Panels are generally made with a 6 pound per cubic foot density fiberglass core wrapped with a fire retardant fabric or perforated vinyl. Panels are typically 1” or 2” thick and come in 2-foot increment sizes. Custom size and shaped panels would increase the cost. Panels should be 1” thick and can be mounted directly to the walls and ceiling.
Mass loaded vinyl (MLV) with (NE Quilted MLV) and without (NE MLV) an acoustically absorptive side (). The provides a barrier while the absorption reduces reflections. Acoustical absorption is important for an enclosure or when reflections may increase noise levels.
Scrim faced NE Mineral Wool is an inexpensive way to add acoustical adsorption to a space. It can be attached directly to a ceiling.
We also provide perforated metal barriers (NE Metal Barriers). These lightweight panels have a solid exterior to block noise and perforated metal on the interior with fiberglass in the space between to absorb noise and reduce reflections. The fiberglass and perforated metal can also be attached to a masonry wall (NE Metal Panels).
We design and install custom enclosures that can have absorptive, transparent and operable components. We build them to your needs to enclose loud equipment and provide the access and visibility that you need.
Noise Engineers provides information and resources to help people address acoustical issues. In these episodes my goal is to provide resources, inexpensive tools, rules of thumb when dealing with acoustical issues. I would like to explain basic acoustic principles and answer any questions. I will describe actual projects to make this as practical as possible.
