"Acoustiblok is used in our motorized screen systems. We are very satisfied with the results on our sound proofing project." -
A night under the stars - especially in a planetarium - shouldn't include unwanted sound effects. When a museum and planetarium with IMax theather is next to a busy highway, Acoustiblok is essential for sound insulation. At MOSI in Tampa Florida, Acoustiblok is used to exclude noise from the high traffic 4-lane road 50 feet from the building, and to isolate noise sources inside the facilty from quiet areas. -
Division 7 Insulation we pride ourselves in custom
thermal and acoustical treatments in a majority of our
residential, commercial and multi-family applications. We have
found Acoustiblok to be the perfect compliment to many of our
customer's demands for cutting edge performance, especially in
the area of sound control. Acoustiblok's performance has time
and again proven to be the leader, especially in our upper end
multi-family projects in downtown Vail, CO, where sound
engineers on these projects are continually amazed by its
versatility and sound deadening characteristics.
In order for us to adhere to the stringent requirements posed
by these engineers and contractors, we find ourselves ever
developing new and innovative techniques in the application of
Acoustiblok. As with any product, if it is not installed
properly, the capability of the product diminishes
significantly. Although Acoustiblok is rather awkward and
cumbersome, with a little practice, it can still be installed to
achieve its highest level of performance. With the superior
customer service and technical support we receive from the staff
at Acoustiblok, we have been able to address and overcome just
about any issue that is posed to us.
I would highly recommend this product to anyone who is serious
about noise reduction, regardless of the conditions, whether it
be a home theatre all the way up to an industrial application.
The knowledgeable staff at Acoustiblok is there to serve.
Acoustiblok came to our rescue on a
residential construction project we had just started. We were
required to run a large and very loud diesel motor 24 hours a
day to remove ground water during our initial foundation
excavation. This project was located in a prestigious neighborhood
and the neighbors weren't going to put up with it. In fact, one
neighbor had called the local building department and reported us,
prompting a local inspector to visit our site.
We needed a way to quiet the motor, but we thought getting the
noise level to 55dB was nearly impossible - until we decided to
call Acoustiblok. We described the situation to L.J. and Steve
and they thought they could fix the problem and meet the city's
noise ordinance requirements. Within hours Steve was on our job
site taking decibel readings and arranging the noise-reducing
Acoustiblok panels around the noisy diesel motor. After a few
adjustments, we were getting noise levels of 52-54dB. In fact,
it was so quiet, simply a bird chirping during the noise level
testing was pushing the dB meter into the 58-60dB range! They
were also able to provide documentation to our local inspector
who was extremely impressed with our solution. Steve also
personally talked to the neighbor who originally called the
building department and they were very grateful for the quick
response and the professionalism of the solution. Thank you
Accoustiblok for saving our project!

At the new in Honolulu Hawaii,
Acoustiblok was built into the penthouse floors. The results
were so outstanding that the developer/builder has now
required that the Acoustiblok floor system be used in all units
having solid floors.

When the suppliers of the high power pumps at Coastal De-Watering were called in to drain footers on a $6.2 million dollar custom home construction site, they also had to solve a noise problem. Water from the nearby bay was seeping into the footers before the concrete could adequately set up. When the pumps was turned on the neighbors complained about the noise, especially when it was explained that it would be needed 24/7 for at least three days.
The temporary installation of Acoustiblok All Weather Industrial Sound Panels was completed in less than 1 hour and the sound reduction was dramatic. At the pump the sound was reduced from 90.7 dbs to 71.5 dbs. At the lot line where the neighbors had complained the sound was reduced from 62.3 dB to less than 52 dB. This is a reduction of about 50% in audible sound.
"We are reviewing purchase of these panels to take to every job---you're damn right they're good."
Grand Canyon Quiet Again
Stuck with 105 dB noise from an air intake head, Grand Canyon National Park
service personnel were truly in a bind. Massive amounts of air must flow, so
the intake could not have a restrictive housing.
Simple solution: Four Acoustiblok
All Weather Sound Panels™ Easily installed and preserving ease of access,
the AWSP solution provides an amazing 30 db noise reduction! "Works very well... can
not be distinguished from ambient noise of surrounding equipment." - Dave Welborn
To The Prospective Customers of Acoustiblok:
When we started looking at this product, I was on a short time
table and was not sure what I was looking for. We found
the customer service department to be great. They helped
get the information and the pricing to us for our project.
When it came to ordering and handling the product, they
out did themselves again. We could not be any happier and
looking forward to using them and their products again.

Shephards Beach Resort has a very popular chic nighclub called The Wave.
The club is jammed pack and the music is very loud (105dB). The guests
staying in the rooms above the club always complained about the vibrating
loud music penetrating into their rooms.
We decided to install
Acoustiblok inside the club to hopefully alleviate the complaints. Extra
measures were taken to ensure the highest abatement would be obtained.
Sound measurements were recorded before and after installation of the
material. The noise reduction was impressive, but more importantly, the
complaints from guests have stopped. If the material is installed
correctly, it really works.

I've got this big four-story-plus-basement town house in Washington DC.
It's 90 years old and accommodates me plus two girls and a boy between 11
and 15, my wife, two dogs and a cat. A recipe for chaos, right? YES. No
place to hide from the teenage skirmishing, the latest music, the latest
movies and all the associated hassles.
Four months ago in desperation I tore out the
basement to the four walls and within the space created my own personal
apartment. Thanks to careful and liberal use of Acoustiblok,
it's a refuge that's all but soundproof. Unbelievable.
Now, as I sit isolated in the evening with a glass of wine and a good book,
I know that upstairs on a couple of floors the usual mayhem is playing out.
From down here there's a murmur for background and that's it.
I smile quietly to myself. Thank you people, I've
regained a measure of sanity.
A Happy Homeowner
Schell Brothers has an excellent reputation of providing our homeowners
with quality construction and excellent customer service. One or our
premier projects is the Windswept Condos located in the Peninsula Resort.
Ensuring the Resort's tranquility and serenity be experienced in each
unit, Schell Brothers chose Acoustiblok for noise abatement. We have
installed Acoustiblok on the floor joist and walls. As builders we really
like how easy the material is installed compared to other products. It is
just very heavy! We built an A frame roller system enabling us to buy the
Although the project is still under construction, we were
amazed that the noise from chop saws, nail guns, compressors and blasts
were drastically reduced. Along with our other measures taken to reduce
noise, Acoustiblok has provided great results!
During our years as a dealer for Acoustiblok we have installed
Acoustiblok on various types of projects and all have been
successful. We have used Acoustiblok for treating walls, ceilings, and
floors, for wrapping pipes, isolating mechanical equipment and many
other creative applications. Since the product is pliable and easy
to cut our installation is very productive in most all
applications. Due to the proven effectiveness of Acoustiblok
treatments we always recommend your product when blocking sound
transmission is desired. We look forward to more projects as a
dealer with Acoustiblok in the future!

Our company specializes in the custom design of high-end dedicated home theaters.
Having the theater acoustically isolated form the rest of the structure and the outside
environment is a trademark of our designs. To achieve these results, we must use the
best materials and construction techniques available. Your products, including Acoustiblok
and Acousticaulk, are key components that give us the ability to obtain high levels of
sound isolation that our clients require.
In addition to the standard installation method demonstrated on your webiste, we also
use Acoustiblok in our acoustically de-coupled wall and ceiling constructions. This
technique actually helps to improve the sound within a dedicated listening space
while providing the ultimate in sound isolation.
Thanks for your great products and customer service.

We had a problem renting many units because of the noise
emanating from adjacent AC handlers and compressors located
on the roof of our main clubhouse facility. The Acoustiblok
All Weather Sound Panels worked as specified, and provided a
substantial DB reduction, saving us from moving the AC equipment
at great cost. The affected units are now all rented.

As a company, Acoustiblok is one of the few that backs its claims with hard
science. Their website is filled with useful information including
predicted results using various construction methods including resilient
channels and double walls. Without this information, choosing one technique
over another would be extremely difficult, as "trial and error" is not an
option in construction.
As a product, we have found Acoustiblok to be very effective. Our
storefront is on a major road, and our theater room had a thin wall with a
door and window. Road noise made the room unusable, with both midrange car
noise and the occasional low frequency truck sound. After installing a
false wall inside that wall, using Acoustiblok, the room is essentially
silent. Furthermore, since we built the wall in stages, we can say that the
before Acoustiblok wall was not nearly as effective as the one after
installation. The actual installation of the product does take two people,
but is otherwise quick and easy!
Although this project was not
our first time with installing Acoustiblok, it definitely
gave us the most exposure. We designed the home theater
for a house selected in the local “Parade of Homes”.
The room itself posed several acoustical challenges, but
with the assistance of the staff at Acoustiblok, we solved
them all. Another home also had a media room but was not
treated with Acoustiblok. Finally the day arrived for the
homes to be showcased. The reactions of the people streaming
through the homes were entertaining. Everyone that came
into the home treated with the Acoustiblok asked where the
home theater was located. They stated they could hear the
other home theater from out on the street. They were amazed
and impressed they could not hear the home theater in the
Acoustiblok treated home even though the theater was "booming"
continuously. The product works great. We will continue
recommending it in all of our projects.

Valle del Tamarindo condominium San Juan Costa Rica
Located at Escazu, on the hills of the west side of San Jose, the most
exclusive vertical condominium to date is under construction. Valle del
Tamarindo is the name of the project and comprehends a 9 stories high
building which houses 12 condos and 2 penthhouses.
Each condo is 5.000 sq/feet, and the penthouses are 10.000 sq/feet,
constructions in 2 levels. The project houses the highest international
standards regarding construction, security and finishes.
Privacy is a very important issue, especially in 6 figure homes. Where
its vertical nature, masonry can not be used on all internal walls
due to weight and structural limitations. Costa Rica is a located in a
very active seismic zone.
The options considered common use construction materials in several
configurations with multiple layers or improving the simple gypsum wall with an
Acoustiblok liner. Once the developer considered the options, the labor
required for each configuration, and indirect costs, the best investment
choice considering soundproofing benefits was the Acoustiblok option. Acoustiblok
presented a STC52 rating in a very easy and fast way to do it.
Most of the bedroom and bathroom walls are considered critical and are
treated. Walls dividing kitchen and dining areas, as well as laundry
areas are commonly treated zones as well. Each apartment owner has also
added his choice for specific treatments: offices, gyms, dens, yoga
To the right is my preliminary results of the performance of the Tamarindo
Valley walls. Each wall is a composed by 1 layer of 1/2 inch gypsum, 3 inches metal
stud, fiberglass filling , 1 layer acoustiblok and the other gypsum layer,
sealed and painted. The walls run from the floor all the way to floor ceiling assembly of the
Our firm feels really proud to be part of such a high end project and
having fulfilled the developers' requirements on such a sensitive topic.

I not only have sold 120 town homes with Acoustiblok in
Baldwin Park but I also live in one. The quality and efficiency
of Acoustiblok has helped me ease the concerns of all of my
buyers for an attached town home product. I have spoken with
various home owners that all tell me they are very happy with
the quality of the sound protection in between the units. I can
also personally attest to the quality of AcoustiBlok in my own
home. I have a surround sound system and I have asked my
neighbor repeatedly if they hear it and the answer is always no.
I definitely recommend this product.

To Whom It May Concern,
Craycon Homes is a residential home builder located in Piqua, Ohio. Our product line includes multi-family, duplex projects and single family homes in the greater Miami County area. We have used Acoustiblok on our zero lot line duplex units for a sound barrier between the units. We have found that this product does an amazing job of eliminating sound transferal between adjacent units at the parting wall. We have found that Acoustiblok is relatively easy to install saving on labor costs. We have been recommending this product to other trades people, with our stamp of approval. Thank you for the opportunity to share our success with your product.
Soundproofing* our car with Acoustiblok
made a BIG difference. We laid a
sheet of Acoustiblok on our car floor before we put in our
player. It really cuts down outside noise and makes listening
to music in
our car very pleasurable. We plan to use Acoustiblok in our
house when we
renovate. We are very happy with Acoustiblok soundproofing
