Acoustiblok® All Weather Sound Panels are engineered specifically to withstand the most rigorous outdoor and industrial environments. Water, moisture, humid salt air or salt water, dirt, dust, constant ultraviolet light, chlorine air, grease, corrosion, and most harsh chemicals are not a problem for this product. Encased by all welded aluminum also prohibits vermin problems. Acoustiblok’soutdoor sound panels are washable with a hose, very durable, long lasting and usable in hundreds of areas and applications. The panel has an NRC (Noise Reduction Coefficient) of 1.00 (highest level possible), Riverbank Acoustical Laboratories test results.
Extreme dust conditons can disable conventional sound absorbing systems. The Industrial & Hurricane model All Weather Sound Panels are available with an acoustically transparent stainless steel dust filter (as much as 5 to 10 microns), which solves this problem for the mining industry, outdoor use in desert areas of the Middle East, and other applications where dust is a concern. Acoustiblok Panels are extremely durable and are currently in use by the United States Army in the Middle East.
In addition, these panels are not just “sound absorbing” but also “sound blocking.” This allows one to not only absorb sound but also stop the sound from penetrating through the panel, a very meaningful advantage over conventional “sound absorbing” panels which stop sound reflections but are poor sound barriers. The panels have an extraordinarily high STC of 30 (Sound Transmission Class), as the panels contain large amounts of the Acoustiblok material.
The most difficult sound blocking problems are the low frequencies (30 to 100 HZ). The annoying bass in music is predominately 40 to 80 HZ. Conventional sound barriers do dramatically less sound blocking below 100 HZ. However because of the “Acoustiblok” barrier material built into each of the “All weather panels” they actually increase in sound blocking from 100 HZ down (see test results) and are beneficial for difficult sound proofing*.
These panels are rigid and self-supporting. They can be used like building blocks to permanently or temporarily enclose a noise source, i.e., chillers and machinery. (Allow for required cooling).
Easily movable, they need not be permanent and may be stored in harsh environments without harm from the elements.
These entirely welded panels use only the highest in quality material and craftsmanship. Strain hardened 1.016mm corrosion resistant perforated aluminum front is resistant to abuse and sharp objects. New heavy duty frames have 18 flush eyelets free from any protrusions or screw heads thus allowing flush stacking and storage: Easily stack 50 panels in only 10 feet of height.
