Product Description

The PrivacyShield® Outdoor Absorptive Soundproofing Blanket, (formerly the ABBC-13EXT AudioSeal® Exterior Sound Blanket) is a sound barrier curtain used to block and absorb sound in exterior applications. The blanket is a weather-resistant barrier-backed composite (BBC), consisting of UV and tear resistant vinyl coated polyester facing. The facing is quilted on 1 in. or 2 in. thick acoustical fiberglass batting with Gore® Tenara® thread. It also has a reinforced 1 lb. per sq. ft. mass loaded vinyl sound barrier bonded to one side. The absorptive quilted fiberglass side of the blanket should face towards the sound you wish to absorb.

These blankets are a combination of sound blocking and sound absorbing material. These sound attenuation blankets work like curtain panels. They are constructed with grommets across the top edge and Velcro® along the vertical edges which make them easy to hang, layer, and install.

PrivacyShield® Outdoor Absorptive Soundproofing Blankets may be mounted to fences or other structures to create temporary or permanent sound barriers for construction sites, highways, noisy equipment or to block the direct path of other exterior noise sources. This exterior grade sound barrier is ideal for outdoor environments where extended lifespan and durability is important.

Standard 4-1/2′ x 8′ blanket panels may be ordered online. Other sizes up to 4 ft. x 20 ft. are available, please contact us with your specific requirements.

This sound blanket works extremely well. I hung out on an exterior wall to block sound from the condensing unit of our air conditioner. Can not hear it anymore inside the house.
