Sound Barriers Mass Loaded Vinyl

Reduce Noise Transmission with Sound Barrier Mass Loaded Vinyl

Sound Barrier Mass Loaded Vinyl is a high-density vinyl sheet available in 1 lb and 2 lb per square foot options. It effectively blocks and dampens sound transmission through walls, ceilings, and floors.

Here’s how it works:

  • New Construction: During construction, apply Sound Barrier directly to wall, ceiling, or floor framing before adding drywall, paneling, or flooring. Use roofing nails or fastener/washers for secure installation.

  • Existing Rooms: Apply Sound Barrier directly to existing walls or ceilings, then cover it with your chosen finish material (sheetrock, paneling, etc.).

Maximize Performance:

  • To achieve optimal sound isolation, especially for vibration control, create a barrier between the Sound Barrier and the final surface using furring strips or resilient channels.

Thin but Effective:

At a mere 1/8″ thickness for the 1 lb option, Sound Barrier Mass Loaded Vinyl offers exceptional sound reduction without sacrificing space.

Key benefits:

  • Blocks and dampens sound transmission
  • Available in 1 lb and 2 lb densities for different needs
  • Easy to install in new construction or existing rooms
  • Thin profile minimizes impact on space

Sound Barriers Mass Loaded Vinyl

Reduce Noise Transmission with Sound Barrier Mass Loaded Vinyl

Sound Barrier Mass Loaded Vinyl is a high-density vinyl sheet available in 1 lb and 2 lb per square foot options, offered in two variations to suit your specific needs:

  • Non-Reinforced: This is the ideal choice for most applications. It’s easy to install on walls, ceilings, or floors during construction or directly onto existing surfaces before adding your chosen finish material (sheetrock, paneling, etc.).

  • Reinforced: This version features a stronger backing specifically designed for hanging vertically. It’s perfect for situations where the Sound Barrier needs to be suspended from ceilings to block sound, preventing tears that might occur due to its own weight.

Here’s how it works:

  • New Construction: During construction, apply the appropriate Sound Barrier version (reinforced or non-reinforced) directly to wall, ceiling, or floor framing before adding drywall, paneling, or flooring. Use roofing nails or fastener/washers for secure installation.

  • Existing Rooms: Apply the non-reinforced Sound Barrier directly to existing walls or ceilings, then cover it with your chosen finish material (sheetrock, paneling, etc.).

Maximize Performance:

  • To achieve optimal sound isolation, especially for vibration control, create a barrier between the Sound Barrier and the final surface using furring strips or resilient channels.

Thin but Effective:

At a mere 1/8″ thickness for the 1 lb option, Sound Barrier Mass Loaded Vinyl offers exceptional sound reduction without sacrificing space.

Key benefits:

  • Blocks and dampens sound transmission
  • Available in 1 lb and 2 lb densities for different needs
  • Non-reinforced and reinforced options for various applications (most uses vs. hanging applications)
  • Easy to install in new construction or existing rooms
  • Thin profile minimizes impact on space
