Domestic Automobile Manufacturer
A large domestic automobile manufacturing facility needed a sound-blocking and sound-absorbing wall to mitigate sound inside its manufacturing and testing areas.
The customer has a high-value area that needed to be hidden from view from the rest of the facility for confidentiality. Additionally, the noise at that site was very high due to dolly trains delivering materials to the site. They needed a solution that would enclose the area from view as well as block and absorb sound traveling to and from the site.
The customer considered simply using a tarp or fabric curtain to block off the area but due to the high sound levels, they knew we needed a solution that would solve both sound and security issues simultaneously. Two large wall sections each 10′ high were constructed using PrivacyShield® Dual-Sided Absorptive Soundproofing Blankets with a heavy-duty double track support frame.
The sound was effectively reduced in the area where the blanket panel wall was installed. Access doors were included so getting into the area is quick and easy. Employees can work without excess noise that can be dangerous with long-term exposure.
In the Customer’s Own Words
“It was great to receive all the installation parts included with the blanket panels when they were delivered. We saved time by not having to source our own installation materials. Additionally, the ability to make special cuts in the panels to allow piping to pass through some areas allowed a custom fit to be completed quickly on site.”
“The solution worked perfectly. We are very happy with the end results. The soundproofing blankets work even better than we expected to absorb and block sound, plus they hide the area from view.”
