The AQFA-10EXT Exterior Absorber Sound Blanket is used to add sound absorption to exterior applications to reduce reverberation and echo. The AQFA-10EXT Exterior Absorber Blankets are quilted fiberglass absorbers (QFA) that feature UV and tear resistant exterior grade vinyl coated polyester quilted to 2-inch thick fiberglass batting, sewn with a Gore® Tenara® thread.

The AQFA-10EXT can be installed on existing solid surface. The quilted fiberglass absorber blanket reduces the reflection of sound waves by adding soft, porous, open-celled materials to an otherwise less absorbent surface. These blankets are often used to reduce sound from outdoor HVAC equipment, dust collectors or other equipment and can be installed on wood fencing or existing walls.

The quilted blanket may be configured as hanging panels or provided as roll goods. Standard sound blanket panels are constructed with all edges bound and grommets across the top and bottom edges. Rolls can also be supplied with unbound edges and typically do not include grommets unless otherwise specified.

These durable blankets have an NRC rating of 0.75 and weigh approximately 0.50 pounds per square foot. The AQFA-10EXT blanket is available in a variety of colors and stitch patterns and can be made in any size up to 4′ x 25′.

 AQFA10EXT Sound blanket panels or rolls are ideal for use in exterior applications.

Standard 4′ x 8′ blanket panels may be ordered online. Other sizes and configurations are available, please contact us with your specific requirements.

Cleaning and Maintenance:

Industrial grade quilted acoustical blankets may be cleaned by using a vacuum cleaner or broom to remove the debris from the blanket surfaces. In addition, any product surface that is not a scrim facing may be cleaned with an air hose or any non-solvent based cleaning product.

A typical “all-purpose cleaner” that contains ingredients such as “water, detergents, and grease cutter” is recommended. Similar suitable brand names are Formula 409, Top Job, Spic & Span, and Mr. Clean.
