Audioseal® Sound Barrier is a mass loaded vinyl (mlv) sound barrier used to reduce the amount of airborne sound from transmitting through walls, floors and ceilings. It can be added to various construction assemblies to increase STC (Sound Transmission Loss) of the structure. It is a limp-mass material made of high-temperature fused vinyl and no lead fillers. Audioseal® Sound Barrier is very dense, weighing one to two pounds per square foot. Audioseal® is commonly used in new construction and also to correct noise problems in existing spaces.

Audioseal® Sound Barrier is a non-reinforced version for wall and ceiling installations. Audioseal® is tear resistant, yet easy to cut with a utility knife. Its available in 48″ or 54″ widths and various lengths to provide the best utilization for your project.

Usually installed direct to the studs, vinyl sound barrier may also be installed between layers of drywall. Often, the mass loaded barrier is used in combination with other materials to create a soundproof system. Combining it with layers of sheet rock with Green Glue and resilient clips and channels will improve the sound transmission loss of the complete assembly.

    The only reason I gave four stars is the material is hard to work with. No fault to the design, it's just so heavy and flexible, getting it on a wall and especially the ceiling is very hard.

    Weighted vinyl is very impressive. Yes it is heavy but what would someone expect from a sound proofing tool/product. Easy to work with and very strong. I’m installing it in the walls and ceiling of my studio. Highly recommended. When properly applied, this is top notch, very professional sound controlling product.

    We use this inside trucks to keep outside noses out. Recommend this to anyone that needs to keep noise out and the quiet in.

    We are using the mass loaded vinyl on our wood fence to block road noise. Works really well.

    Perfect sound decoupler for my car.

    I use it as sound barrier against loud neighbors. It makes a big difference, but of course, some noise still spills over the fence.

    Audio Seal Sound Barrier is serious sound blocking material. Loosely hung, I can't imagine a home theater without it. It drastically cuts sound transfer (and Acoustical Solutions had the best price for a mass loaded vinyl product!)

    More comments from satisfied customers. The sound barrier was installed yesterday and I put my boom box in the room, cranked it up, ran upstairs and could not hear a thing!!! Awesome. The sheet rock went up last night on the ceiling and I found that my singing sounds quite nice in the room! Maybe I should turn it into a recording studio. Thanks for your help.
