Noise Barriers

Mass-Loaded Vinyl and Clear Vinyl Sound Barriers

INC flexible mass-loaded opaque and clear vinyl sound barriers control sound by blocking the transmission of sound energy and damping vibrations. Amazingly, pound-for-pound INC flexible barriers acoustically outperform steel and other building materials. INC Flexible Sound Barriers install quickly and inexpensively, and are fundamental components of the INC Flexi-Sorb® Noise Curtain System and are also often used in composite with INC Flexible Absorbers to create curtain partitions and enclosures, septum walls and de-coupled barriers.

But, the uses for our noise and sound barriers don’t stop with curtain systems, they are also used to line equipment cabinets, or as a noise barrier layer within conventional wall and floor structures. And the clear INC type “V” noise barrier material can be used to create clear curtain panels, viewing windows and strip doors.


Noise Barrier Features

Opaque Mass-Loaded Vinyl

  • Vinyl Noise BarriersExcellent acoustical performance
  • Sound barrier characteristic up to STC-26
  • Three weights to choose from
  • Strong polyester-reinforced versions suitable for use in curtain systems and partitions in abusive industrial environments
  • Economical non-reinforced versions for applications such as pipe lagging or equipment wraps
  • Available in rolls or fabricated to your specifications

Clear PVC Vinyl Noise Barrier Features

  • Excellent acoustical performance
  • Sound barrier characteristics of STC-19
  • Quite strong without extra reinforcement
  • Used for curtain panel windows or clear full panels
  • Available in strips, rolls or fabricated to your specifications

Noise Barrier Applications

As an integral part of the our Noise Control Curtain System, INC Flexible barriers are used in virtually every curtain system application. These fundamental strategies most often used are:

  • Enclose or isolate noisy equipment or operations
  • Enclose or isolate personnel, operators and technicians
  • Separate noisy operations or areas

INC Flexible Barrier based treatments can achieve 15 to 25 dBA noise reductions, and have been used for applications like these:

  • Stamping Press Enclosures
  • Soundproof Partitions
  • Curtain Dividers
  • Flexible Doorways
  • Strip Curtains
  • Fan Enclosures
  • Compressor Enclosures
  • Grinder / Compactor Noise Control
  • Room Dividers
  • Construction Site Generator
  • Movable Barriers
  • Plenum Barriers

Noise Barrier Selection Tips

  • Select poly-reinforced (P) vinyl barriers in situations where the vinyl will be physically stressed in any way- for example when hanging panels vertically from hooks, or in situations where the vinyl will undergo repetitive contact.
  • Select non-reinforced (N) vinyl barriers when the vinyl will not be physically stressed, such as to line an equipment cabinet or wrapping ducts or pipes.
  • Select lighter density barriers for general use, where lighter overall weight is desired, or for open-top enclosures or partial barriers.
  • Select heavier density barriers for greater noise level reduction.
