How Noise Is Controlled

QuietZone® Noise Control Solutions use four techniques to control both airborne and structure-borne
sound in your home.

Shhh!

Absorption
Converts sound waves into another form of energy (such as heat) as done by glass fiber insulation.

Products that absorb:
QuietZone® SOLSERENE® Fabric Ceiling System
QuietZone® Noise Control Batts
QuietR™ Duct Board
Flexible Duct Media FIBERGLAS® Insulation

Blocking
Builds a barrier to stop air movement to greatly reduce airborne sound transmission.

Products that block:

Breaking
Disrupts the path of the sound energy as it travels through wall structures.

Products that break:
QuietZone® Acoustic Wall Framing

Isolation
Limits the sound to the area where it originated.
