Outdoor Sound Curtains

Our Outdoor Sound Curtains can be used for both active Construction Sites and for many different Community Noise situations. They can be used in conjunction with a chain link fence to surround a noisy area or to line a noisy building, and at IES-2000, we can design a solution to meet your design specifications. The barrier-backed configuration offers the benefits of both sound absorption and noise barrier products in one on outdoor applications. A cost saving non-reinforced 1-LB psf loaded vinyl barrier is bonded to a 2″ thick exterior grade vinyl-coated-polyester faced quilted fiberglass absorber. These economic modular sound curtains are typically constructed with grommets across the top and bottom and exterior grade Velcro seals along the vertical edges.

Construction Site Products:

Industrial composite products can be used to reduce the noise transmitting from the construction site to surrounding areas. They can be used in conjunction with pre-cast concrete highway barriers, hung from an overhead highway or supplied with a “hoistable” frame to quiet jack hammer operations. Alternately, Industrial Quilted Fiberglass Absorbers can be attached to temporary plywood walls.

Community Noise Projects:

Industrial noise control products have been used to reduce community noise from gas compressor stations, truck distribution centers, skateboard parks, amphitheaters, even commercial and residential air conditioners. IES-2000 has a full line of products that are designed to withstand the effect of UV rays to offer long term, outdoor noise control solutions.
