Buying Choices
Auralex Acoustics, Inc., soon to celebrate its 35th anniversary, has introduced its new SheetBlok-AF Sound Isolation Barrier material. Based on the company's popular SheetBlok construction-grade sound barrier product, SheetBlok-AF is a thin, dense isolator with a Class A fire-rated PVC laminate on its surface for a finished look. It is intended as a solution for improved sound isolation between adjacent spaces in the retrofit market where aesthetic appearance is important, but invasive construction and demolition are impossible. With an STC rating of 27 or greater, SheetBlok-AF is at least 6dB more effective than solid lead at stopping the transmission of sound. It acts as a thin, dense sound barrier layer in wall, ceiling and floor systems and is most effective when used as one component of a multi-layered construction scheme, as described in Auralex's Acoustics101 publication.
SheetBlok-AF has been designed with consideration for the contractor/system integrator who is doing either retrofit or new construction. SheetBlok-AF can be implemented anywhere an increase in sound isolation is desired. No wall construction (or reconstruction) is necessary, and SheetBlok-AF is fully paintable to coordinate with any decor.
SheetBlok-AF will be supplied in 4'x10' sheets that can be trimmed to fit with a utility knife or metal shears. It is affixed with trowel-applied adhesive, which allows proper positioning and alignment during installation. Auralex says that, with careful installation techniques, a virtually seamless appearance will result.
