Acoustic barriers—also called sound barriers—block noise from being transmitted from one location to another. Usually made of mass loaded vinyl (MLV), sound-absorbing panels reduce the amount of airborne sound that is transmitted through floorboards, housings, firewalls, enclosures, or other spaces. MLV is a dense material that provides supplementary mass to an existing structure to block airborne sound transmission. It can also be hung as a mass partition.
Technicon manufactures high-quality acoustic sound barriers for OEM equipment. The industries we commonly serve include:
Transportation, Truck, & Specialty
How Do Acoustic Barriers Work?
Acoustic sound barriers are made from a combination of soundproofing materials, including mass loaded vinyl. These soundproof assemblies in roof, walls, and other enclosures prevent sound transmission to adjacent spaces. In heavy-duty industrial environments, heavy-duty sound barriers remain effective even under challenging, high-temperature conditions.
At Technicon, we create composite materials—consisting of decoupling and absorber materials—that can absorb and block noise simultaneously. While acoustic foam panels absorb sound and echo, barriers block noise from traveling from one place to another. Although MLV barriers are heavy, they are not very thick, which allows them to block sound more effectively without taking up excess space. This is especially important in construction sites, engine compartments, and other applications where space is limited.
