soundproofing: Sound Proof Curtains for industrial use
overview - sound absorbing fibreglass insulation
Soundproof Curtains are an acoustic composite designed for industrial use and manufactured from sound absorbing fibreglass insulation and a polymeric sound barrier with absorptive and sound blocking elements encapsulated within an extremely tough vinyl covering.
"We worked with Sound Service and they helped develop a bespoke Acoustic Curtain that met our complex design requirements. The reduction in sound at the tube stations concerned has been considerable and we hope to order from them again soon." Rachael Labruyere, Tube Lines”
description - sound blocking curtain to screen noise
Acoustic Curtain is a very effective sound blocking curtain that can be used to screen noise around noisy machinery or simply used as a temporary solution to screen noise being generated when any noisy remedial work may be conducted.
The fibreglass insulation provides both excellent sound absorption and thermal insulation. The composite is manufactured using three layers of fibreglass with a density of 22kg/m3
and each layer of insulation is quilted to enhance its durability.
A 2kg/m² sound blocking polymer based synthetic membrane is laminated within the fibreglass layers. This membrane acts as a sound or noise barrier, thus reducing the transmission of noise through the curtain.
The insulation is faced with a tough vinyl facing comprising a cloth coated in PVC rubber on both sides. The vinyl facing is wrapped around the edges of the composite and stitched to ensure the fibreglass insulation and polymeric barrier are protected from its working environment.
The vinyl facing is designed for continuous use at temperatures up to 120°C and is available in black or grey.
The curtains are highly flexible and can be supplied with various fixing options including eyelets and Velcro for installation.
Colour & Finishes
Acoustic Curtains for use in thermal insulation applications are generally manufactured with a washable black or grey PVC coated nylon fabric.
Acoustic Curtains for use in sound insulating applications are generally manufactured with a Black acoustically transparent glass cloth fabric.
Other fabric finishes, including your own printing and colours are available subject to enquiry and minimum order quantity.
Applications - Acoustic Curtains for blocking sound in work areas
Note! These acoustic curtains are not suitable for domestic use.
Acoustic Curtains are widely used in a variety of vehicle applications including the engine bay and chassies of buses, earth moving equipment, forklift trucks etc. It is also used in industry as acoustic enclosures and screens for the reduction of noise from pumps, fans, compressors and vacuum units.
We have found a use for this product in the agricultural and farming industry used in farm buildings to compartmentalise large open spaces. This facilitates the creation of different temperature zones within a space, thus enabling fresh produce to be packed or stored in optimum conditions within each growing season.
Acoustic Curtains are also used in underground railway stations to create a barrier to noise travelling up stairwells and escalators during refurbishment works and on construction sites to control noise breaking out and disturbing neighbours in the surrounding environment.
As well as blocking sound they can help reduce the volume of dirt and dust migrating between different work areas.
Acoustic Curtains with our PVC coated fabric are suitable for use when the
temperature within a building ranges from -20ºC to +30ºC.
Acoustic Curtains with our black glass cloth fabric are suitable for use when the
temperature within a building ranges from 0ºC to +200ºC.
