All Weather Panels
Acoustiblok All Weather Sound Panels®
For years, acoustical sound absorbing panels have been used successfully to control problems with noise and sound in all types of indoor environments. They reduce tension, make music sound better, allow people to speak and hear better and provide a safer work environment.
But, because they are all made of fragile indoor materials, they can in no way withstand any other environment but the clean climate controlled indoors. The panels will rot, support mold, change color in U.V. light, and as the edges are hardened with sodium silicate (a water soluble salt crystallized), they are not washable or capable of exposure to moisture or water...until now!
Now however, "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 wonderful product. Acoustiblok's outdoor sound panels are washable with a hose, very durable, long lasting and usable in hundreds of areas and applications. The panel has an incredible NRC of 1.00 (Noise Reduction Coefficient), 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, 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 & 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 amazingly 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).
These indoor / outdoor sound panels are also available at a substantially reduced cost, without hurricane-rated internal reinforcement.
Truly a fantastic product. Easily movable, they need not be permanent and may be stored in harsh environments without harm from the elements.
These panels use only the highest in quality material and craftsmanship. Strain hardened 0.040" (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.
|Panels are easily installed on chainlink fence for temporary on permenent installations. Road noise is actually absorbed by the panel instead of being reflected to the other side.|
This All Weather Sound Panel installation is keeping new chiller noise froma surrounding neighborhood at a Florida High School
Extreme weather is no match for these All Weather Panels. Even in the incredible Mideast desert heat, generators maintain temperature while achieving over 50% sound reduction with "All Weather Sound Panels"
|Remedial noise has been suppressed at this pumping station reara residential neighborhood.|
Panels control machinery and pump noise in offshore oil platforms & other full exposure industrial environments
The noise from this portable generator was easily suppressed with the use of the

Panels reduced noise levels of a mass transit system in Washington D.C. Did we mention these are maintenance free year after year?
Using a non absorbent barrier here would have reflect the noise back onto the higher side of the train, which then would reflect the noise over the top of the wall. Not so with these sound absorbing panels.
As you can see the uses are limitless.
