The Eureka Moment
As a result of this work, Mr. Johnson recognized the need to isolate sound and prevent it from bleeding into surrounding environments. Due to his intimate knowledge of the way sound propagates and travels, he was more equipped to handle the new task of isolating it. Therefore, he spent months researching and studying all of the noise isolation practices and materials that were in use at that time and consequently found them lacking in both innovation and results.
Due to the fact that achieving complete sound isolation required extensive engineering on all fronts of construction, it was extremely expensive and hence difficult to implement. Therefore he asked the question: how do we provide a simple and affordable sound isolation technique that could reduce airborne noise by 85-90%? To find the answer, he experimented and tested hundreds of materials, techniques and applications for an acoustical solution.
Finally, Acoustiblok was the end result of this effort. It is most noteworthy, since with over 400 U.L. classifications, no technical expertise required for installation and the ability to add to an existing design, Acoustiblok revolutionized the building industry when it came to sound isolation.
In conclusion, Lahnie Johnson, engineer, entrepreneur and visionary, continues to inspire his team with a passion for advancements in acoustical isolation. Furthermore, his genuine concern for creating better sounding environments drives him to continue educating our society concerning the effect of acoustics on our everyday lives.
