Lahnie Johnson, founder and president of Acoustiblok, Inc., said the decision to layer the AcoustiFence and QuietFiber within the pool’s plumbing structure is a perfect example of addressing an unusual noise problem creatively.
“The noise emanating from the structure needed to be blocked to keep it from distracting the neighbors, but the noise within the structure would have been unbearably loud without the absorption qualities of QuietFiber,” Johnson said.
“Combining the two created a noise deadening solution that suited the project perfectly by addressing both problems.”
Originally designed for industrial noise, Acoustifence is a 1/8-inch (3mm) thick unique sound deadening material measuring 6-feet (1.82 meters) high by 30-feet (9.14 meters) long with black anodized brass eyelets along the top and bottom edge for easy attachment. Heavy-duty nylon ties are included with each roll.
Easily installed or removed in less than one hour, impervious to mold, mildew, and UV, Acoustifence is virtually indestructible. The soundproofing material in Acoustifence is a proprietary formula of the Acoustiblok Corporation, developed and refined over a 10-year period.
Unlike fiberglass, QuietFiber is not only UV tolerant, but also totally hydrophobic (will not absorb water or moisture), and specifically designed for maximum (NRC 1.00) noise absorption. In addition, it will not support mold or mildew, and can work in temperatures above 180-degrees.
Quietfiber is UL fire rated for floor, wall and ceiling applications, and like all Acoustiblok products, 100-percent recyclable and 100-percent made in the U.S.A.
