Outdoor Noise Control operates under a completely different set of conditions when compared to architectural acoustics. Consequently, you will require specialized materials. The acoustic materials will need the ability to survive outdoor elements. For heavy duty machine enclosures, a custom IAC Acoustics Moduline® Acoustic Enclosure may be the solution. Customization with almost no limits makes the Moduline® a flagship product. In situations like a chiller or commercial HVAC equipment, a surround using IAC Acoustics Noishield® Sound Barrier Walls may be more appropriate. Still open at the top, this Noishield® Sound Barrier Walls allow for air circulation while blocking the sound’s line of sight and absorbing sound within the surround.
In some outdoor noise control cases, using exterior grade sound barrier blankets may be practical or economical. The ABBC-13EXT AudioSeal® Exterior Sound Blanket is great solution for that – just about anyone can handle a DIY project. If you have a need to surround noisy equipment, block sound through a fence on a property line, or need to a create temporary barrier construction site, the ABBC-13EXT Blanket is a versatile and easy to install option. If you only need exterior sound absorption, use the AQFA-10EXT Exterior Absorber Sound Blanket or the Cypress Acoustic Panel. These may be used to quiet reflections off of nearby walls or used to tame sound in an outdoor venue.
