Top 4 Commercial Uses of Acoustic Insulation

Smartech has partnered with Steinbach of Germany to provide custom-designed and custom-cut acoustic insulation materials. We aim to provide a wide variety of customers with quality customer service with product selection, customization, and delivery. Acoustic insulation has a number of commercial and industrial applications to help reduce sound, noise, and vibrations. In fact, acoustic insulation is a vital element to many commercial uses to reduce the risk of high noise levels and create more comfortable environments. From building construction to car manufacturing, acoustic installation helps to reduce noise, absorb noise, dampen vibrations, and reflect vibrations. Learn more about the top four commercial uses of acoustic insulation and how Smartech can help with your commercial project:

Reducing Noise
Acoustic insulation in the car manufacturing industry helps to reduce noise created by the engine and other aspects of the vehicle. High levels of noise can actually be damaging and even a safety hazard in some commercial scenarios, and acoustic insulation helps to reduce that noise to a safe and manageable level. Acoustic insulation reduces noise in automotive and equipment panels and engine bays for the vehicle manufacturing industry. Acoustic insulation is also beneficial for reducing noise in machine enclosures. This type of insulation has both indoor and outdoor uses, depending on the needs and requirements of the project. When selecting acoustic insulation for commercial use, the porosity of the material, along with cell size, density, and thickness, play a part in how effective the insulation will be at reducing noise.

Absorbing Noise
Acoustic insulation is used to absorb noise in a variety of commercial contexts, including building construction. This type of insulation is designed to absorb the sound created by movement in indoor spaces. Floors and ceilings may be designed with acoustic insulation to help absorb the noise of movements in between floors of a building. Walls may also have acoustic insulation to help with absorbing noise from room to room. In many cases, acoustic insulation can also help to provide fire resistance and have hydrophobic properties to help avoid mold growth in walls, ceilings, and floors. Indoor acoustic insulation provides better noise absorption so that rooms and spaces have appropriate acoustics. Commercial acoustic insulation also provides a barrier in between spaces such as hotels and multi-family spaces with shared walls.

Dampening Vibrations
Acoustic insulation can help dampen vibrations caused by the usage of machinery and appliances that create deep sound vibration and other machinery noise. Air conditioning units and HVAC may rely on acoustic insulation to dampen vibrations created by the machinery when it is in motion and help to decrease any resulting sounds and noise. Acoustic insulation dampens sound waves caused by vibrations in the air that can even occur outside of the normal range of human hearing and sound frequencies. Acoustic insulation dampens those vibrations within and around commercial projects like machinery used in a variety of contexts. Acoustic insulation can also be used in an outdoor setting to help dampen vibrations in the air and reduce the noise outside of a building.

Reflecting Vibrations
Acoustic insulation can also reflect vibrations of sound waves in the air and redirect those to other areas. When acoustic insulation is used in reflecting vibrations, it can actually minimize the perceived loudness and noise in both indoor and outdoor spaces. Materials used for soundproofing and sound dampening also help to redirect the actual sound waves, thus reflecting those vibrations and dissipating their energy. Noises and vibrations can be reflected off of the acoustic insulation and are beneficial in roadwork construction, like with highway barriers for managing traffic noise. Acoustic insulation provides reflective barriers to help block out exterior vibrations caused by vibrations in the air.

The most effective means of addressing noise and vibrations in a variety of commercial contexts is by employing acoustic insulation.
