Weight-Enhanced Acoustic Barrier Type WB

Acoustic Barrier Type WB.pdf

Applications

INS WB Acoustic Barrier material can be used as either a single sound barrier layer such as a noise curtain, or as part of a composite combined with sound absorbing materials such as mineral wool or foam for soundproofing materials. Commonly utilised in roof, floor and wall sound reduction applications to reduce transmission of airborne and impact noise.

Installation

INS WBacoustic Barrier is simple to install either direct to the noise source or in conjunction with a spaced layer; the product can be laid directly. The acoustic barrier can be fixed in place by mechanical means i.e. pins, hangers or banding, or bonding using a polyurethane based contact adhesive (INS type A7153). Alternatively a solvent based acrylic pressure sensitive adhesive (INS type A419).

For WB Acoustic Barrier material supplied with a self-adhesive backing, it is important to ensure that the surface is clean and free from dust and grease. After aligning the barrier material, peel back the release paper and adhere to the surface. Note, self adhesive versions should not be relied on as the only method of support when fixing in a vertical or inverted position and additional mechanical means of support must be employed.

Benefits

  • Available in sheet or roll form
  • Flexible and easily cut
  • Easy to handle and install
  • Available in three standard weights
  • Provides a cost effective sound barrier solution
  • Available with self-adhesive backing or Class ‘O’ foil facing


Weight-enhanced Acoustic Barrier Type WB-EPDM/BS

Applications

INS WB-EPDM/BS barrier material can be used as either a single sound barrier layer such as a noise curtain, or as part of a composite combined with sound absorbing materials such as mineral wool or foam for soundproofing mats. It is commonly utilised in roof, floor and wall sound reduction applications to reduce transmission of airborne and impact noise. It is also used as a sound barrier / barrier outer wrap for pipeline applications.

Acoustic Barriers

INS Acoustic Barrier is a high density flexible polymeric material used to contain and reduce sound transmissions through walls, ceilings and floors. INS Acoustic Barrier offers a noise reduction service by dampening vibrations in the structure and reducing transmission of airborne and impact noise.

Acoustic Barrier Materials are used for enclosing noise sources, either draped around equipment, suspended between equipment and quiet areas, or lagged to the equipment casing. They can be used effectively to lag piping systems, reducing valves, etc., and are highly effective as crosstalk barriers.

INS Acoustic Barrier Materials are recommended for use in applications where it is necessary to maintain visual contact with noisy equipment, yet achieve a high degree of noise reduction.

INS Acoustic Barrier can also be integrated with many other sound absorbing materials such as mineral wool, acoustic quilt and Class ‘O’ Foam to offer a complete solution (Please see INS Acoustic Lagging).

Application

  • Pipe and duct noise lagging
  • Machinery covers
  • Ceiling noise barriers
  • Crosstalk barrier
  • Wall and door septums
  • Noise curtain panels and enclosures
  • Rooftop equipment barriers
  • OEM applications
