Commercial Facility Remediation

A core philosophy of Acoustiblok centers on ensuring that new construction projects meet modern sound abatement regulations and requirements. But the need for noise abatement in existing facilities is every bit as important. It impacts the safety and well-being of those workers who keep our economy moving and growing.

Noise abatement remediation efforts are needed across a wide spectrum of facility types, including but not limited to the following:

Corporate

Is background chatter in your office making it hard to have an efficient workplace? Is confidentiality being compromised? Does your boardroom sound like a cave? Do your clients hear your co-worker as clearly as they hear you over the phone? Whatever the acoustic issue in your office, we can help.

Acoustiblok has multiple product categories to mitigate the everyday noise levels in your work place. Acoustiblok’s Blok16 is our flagship material used for sound isolation between two interior spaces. This material should be introduced at the framing stage of construction or remodeling. Blok16 will make normal conversation levels unintelligible from one office to another. We also produce Acoustiblok Wall-Cover (AWC); this is a retrofit material capable of the same outstanding performance as our original Blok16. AWC is available in a class “A” fire-rated version and a standard material for surface installation. AWC can be installed directly on top of your existing wall; AWC’s unique composition is comprised of a silver mesh finish, thermo-bonded to Blok16, and melamine foam backing. AWC will give you the same high performance of an STC of 53 when installed on a standard 3-5/8 inches gypsum/metal stud wall assembly.

If your office has more reflections than a room full of mirrors, then QuietFiber (QF-2) will help in reducing the effects of all those hard surfaces. QF-2 is a sound absorption material used to soak up all of those unwanted reflections. Reflections are tricky; too many, makes your space sound like a cave or gymnasium. To little and it makes the space feel uncomfortable and claustrophobic. We can help you create a great feeling soundscape utilizing strategically placed QF-2 panels. We will optimize the “RT” of your workplace to promote a healthy, happy, and productive space that people enjoy working in.

Whatever your needs, Acoustiblok is here to help you engineer a safe and engaging work environment. Please feel free to contact us directly to consult with an office space sound specialist.

Government

From “Top Secret” facilities, SCIF’s, standard departmental areas, private and confidential workspaces are achieved when implementing Acoustiblok systems.

Acoustiblok has been used in hundreds of these settings; its original purpose was to prevent people from hearing what was going on in adjacent rooms.

Human dialogue tends to travel through conventional wall assemblies easily, but when Acoustiblok’s (Blok16) or (Blok32) is added to a standard wall or ceiling assembly, the entire assembly is enhanced in terms of sound transmission loss. By combining our proprietary isolation membrane with conventional construction materials we change the natural resonance of these assemblies; making speech virtually unintelligible. The overall sound level is reduced by 85-90% when a simple layer of Acoustiblok is added to a standard wall assembly.

If intelligibility within one of these spaces is what you’re looking for, then QuietFiber is the solution. QuietFiber (QF-2) is a raw absorption material that can be integrated into the aesthetic of any room quite easily. Wall panels can be custom made with it and ceiling tiles can be replaced with it. By implementing QF-2 you can absorb those reflection build-ups that plague so many offices and boardrooms. When the reflections are absorbed in a space, the direct sound (voices) becomes more intelligible and the entire space becomes less fatiguing. QF-2 is available is a variety of sizes, shapes, and densities to help fix what ever acoustical challenges you’re up against.

Whatever your needs in terms of sound control, Acoustiblok is here to help you obtain the level of privacy you need at your government facility. Please feel free to contact us directly to speak with a governmental facilities specialist.

Medical

Would you want these guys to be abruptly disturbed due to NOISE???

We didn’t think so!!!

Hospitals have noises that, unfortunately, will always be present. But there are noises that can be controlled, and areas of the hospital that have to remain free of interruptions. The NICU, PACU, and all healing environments can be free of unnecessary dins that can have a direct effect on recovery time.

Acoustiblok’s Blok16  & QF-4 are the solution for dramatically reducing the sound transmissions through hospital walls, ceilings and floors. The unique linear attenuation that is created when Blok16 is added to gypsum assemblies provides enhanced noise isolation at frequency ranges wherein gypsum has inherent deficiencies. These frequency ranges are still evident with as much as four layers of gypsum applied to a wall assembly. Blok16 changes the internal damping of the wall and not only adds essential mass to the wall, but it also enhances the flexibility and stiffness, changing the natural resonance of the structure. This is why a wall with Blok16 has a more linear (without dramatic dips and peaks) transmission loss than that of multiple layers of Gypsum or hybrid gypsum designs encompassing adhesives and other variations. If access to internal wall assemblies is needed, and quieter rooms are a must, Blok16 is essential.

Please give us a call to speak with one of our healthcare noise specialists to help you enhance the healing environment at your facility.

Educational

Schools have more noise than ever these days, whether it is from facility mechanicals, routine maintenance or larger classrooms. If you have a school that is suffering from any of these problems or that has other noise issues, Acoustiblok has solutions.

Acoustiblok’s Indoor Sound Absorption Panels (ISP’s) are available in a wide variety of application specific designs and are manufactured to order! Used for reflection control in common spaces, these panels are great for a quick installation. They have an NRC of 1.0 and can be installed vertically or horizontally. These panels are custom built for your needs and available with any Guilford of Maine acoustical fabrics requested at the time of order. These panels are our most popular indoor panels.

When wall space is at a premium and you need a lot of absorption for your room, Acoustiblok Baffle Systems (ABS) give you the highest amount of absorption area per panel. These baffle panels feature six sides of absorption, custom sizing, and can help you add to not only the function of the ceiling (acoustical quality) but give you the ability to inject an architectural element that is normally ignored. ABS’s can be arranged in a myriad of configurations to add to the style of your classroom or auditorium. All ABS’s have an NRC of 1.0 or higher, are available in dozens of color combinations, and are built to order.

If you need to retrofit an existing drop ceiling, Acoustiblok features Acoustiblok Ceiling Tiles & Cloud Modules (CT’s & CM’s). These are 2’x2’ square panels that are approximately 2 inches thick. They can be ordered in three styles. A return air plenum rated, standard drop in, or a 5-sided finish for floating cloud applications. All styles have an NRC of 1.0. Panels for your drop ceiling can also have our Blok16 added to prevent flanking from shared ceiling assemblies. This is a patented version that carries a CAC of 40 as well. We welcome you to contact us directly to confer with an educational institution specialist that can enrich the students and staff’s educational experience.

Ever have trouble understanding the Minister, Preacher, or whoever is speaking to the congregation? What about actually understanding what the chorus is singing? These are just a couple of issues when it comes to the architectural acoustics in places of worship. Let face it, most of them have serious acoustical issues due to the design, shape, and finish materials used to build them.

The good news is that Acoustiblok has materials that can tame the reflection build up and resonance that may plague your spiritual sanctuary. Destructive and constructive interference is the reality of hard surfaced boundaries, (walls, windows, ceilings, & flooring). QuietFiber (QF-2) is the main product we produce that attacks these problem areas of a space. QF-2 is two inches thick and comes in two finishes that allow for hidden or custom finished installations. QF-2 comes in white-faced or black-faced finishes. Both have the same acoustical values and attributes. They have an NRC of 1.0 and higher (no reflections off the face of the material) and can be stacked on top of one another to handle lower frequency absorption when needed for engineering solutions. We also have QF-4 & QF-6 for lower frequency issues in a space.

Both versions can be used for hidden installations, (behind tapestries or anywhere it wouldn’t be seen or touched). They are also simple to wrap in acoustically transparent fabric to match the interior style and design of the space that needs treatment. QuietFiber is sold in bulk; this gives you the best price and limitless design possibilities concerning your project.

If the place of worship has a choir or music rooms, Acoustiblok’s Blok16 is an incredible material for isolating those types of spaces from the rest of the interior. For best results it should be installed at the time of construction. We do offer a version that can be installed after construction is complete, Acoustiblok Wall-Cover (AWC).

Both of these products are unique in their composition and formula. They have the fundamentals that make them a great sound isolation material. They have tremendous mass, extreme flexibility, and are completely airtight. By adding them to standard wall assemblies you can reach STC results higher then 12” of cast concrete. Please feel free to contact us directly to speak with a place of worship acoustical specialist.

Entertainment

When was the last time you went to a show or event hosted in a performing arts center, playhouse or indoor concert hall? Chances are the acoustics were not that great. This is a problem that Acoustiblok can help with. From sound isolation to reflection control and manipulation, Acoustiblok has unique and innovative products for every aspect of the acoustical treatment.

Our wall assembly systems tackle a dynamic range of frequencies to aid in keeping the show or performance contained within the venue. With high damping and sound absorption that extends much wider then the STC criteria, our assemblies have been extremely successful in the most demanding applications. Our wall designs employee airborne solutions, flanking measures and address cavity resonance. We produce and supply everything you need down to the fasteners, sealant and tape. Everything you need to install our materials arrives with your order so it won’t hold up your construction schedule.

Reflection control aids in delivering a tonally balanced and intelligible performance. Acoustiblok’s Quiet Fiber is a great tool in treating a performance-based space for ideal listening conditions. In the hands of the right acoustician or acoustical designer, Quiet Fiber will tune the space and prevent destructive interference at critical listening positions. Quiet Fiber can also be used at locations on the stage to create a more conducive place for musicians and bands to collaborate and perform.

If you need help with the acoustics of a performance based space, please call and ask to speak with one of our entertainment specialists.

Sports

Be it a football field, a gymnasium, a pickleball court or a shooting range, most sports complexes generate a lot of noise. This may seem fine to the people engaged in their particular sport or to the fans watching from the stands, but the residents living near such sports complexes tend to have a different view of the noise.

Regardless of the type of activity that is going on, there will always be some sound or noise associated with it. Acoustiblok has some very unique and high performance products to help manage the sounds and noises of sports. Outdoor court noise is usually ignored when planning the placement of these courts; and as a result they are built close to a residential community’s windows and outdoor patios. Indoor gymnasiums and pools don’t have to worry about the neighbors, but have huge reflection problems that make them loud and harsh to everyone participating in the space. Acoustiblok has the products to make all of these spaces feel and sound better!

Various Sports Facilities

Bar & Restaurant

Restaurants and bars are everywhere and normally have a hustle and bustle of activity. Most of today’s trendiest restaurants and hot spots are adorned with some of the most expensive and attractive interior finishes available. Unfortunately, it seems many of these high-end interior finishes are highly reflective and create a “cave-like” acoustical feel in these spaces. Just think about the last few restaurants you have been to. Was it loud, could you hear what the other tables were talking about, were you able to have a conversation at your table and actually hear each other without leaning into each other? These are just a few of the problems with the acoustics in 90% of the restaurants and nightspots we all frequent.

It all starts with reflective surfaces and angles of incidence. You see, sound has energy and it will propagate away from where it’s created. High frequency,(the stuff that really bothers humans), is very directional and doesn’t lose a whole lot of intensity when it comes into contact with smooth, hard surfaced materials that the sound see’s as a mirror. And once it strikes this mirror point, it reflects like a ray of light off this surface until it reaches another. Sound will continue to do this until it decays enough energy to become inaudible. The proper acoustical design at the conceptual stage of a restaurant or bar can dramatically enhance the overall experience at what typically would be unappealing place to spend a reasonable amount of time over dinner or drinks.

Acoustiblok has innovative products to help you design the right type of acoustical feel for these spaces. If intelligibility within a room is what you’re looking for, then Quiet Fiber is the solution. Quiet Fiber (QF-2) is a raw absorption material that can be integrated into the esthetic of any restaurant quite easily; wall panels can be custom made with it and ceiling tiles can be replaced with it.
