Industrial Sound Curtains (Noise Cancelling Curtains), Panels & Baffle Systems
Industrial Acoustic Curtains
It is important to understand that “anti-static” and “dissipative” are terms that are used to subdivide electro static discharge into further detail. Anti-static materials are generally referred to as any material which inhibits triboelectric charging. This kind of charging is the buildup of an electric charge by frictional contact with another material. Anti-static material will not generate a charge, but also will not dissipate a charge.
Dissipative materials will work to actively dissipate a static charge. They also allow the static charges to flow to ground more slowly, and in a more controlled manner, than with conductive materials.
Materials are divided into anti-static or dissipative classifications based on their individual surface resistance. Surface resistance is a measurement by how easily an electric charge can travel across a medium. Dissipative items have a surface resistance of more than 1 x 10 5 ohms/square but less than 1 x 10 11 ohms/square.
If you’re in need of a higher level of sound containment, such as wanting to isolate a job completely to protect the rest of the area from being exposed to the noise, implementing noise control enclosure curtains is what you’ll want to do. These curtains hang from the ceiling, and can use one, two, or three of your existing walls to create the enclosure. Stationary and retractable options are available, which allows you the option of changing how you use your space as your needs change from project to project. Regardless of whether you want to keep noise contained inside or out of the enclosure, these curtains are an ideal way to create separate spaces.
If an area needs to be quieter for a team to work on a project without warehouse noise or other noise pollution distracting them, creating an enclosed space with sound control enclosure curtains can help keep their workspace comfortable and productive. These enclosures may also be installed to surround loud machinery and keep the noise they produce contained to that part of the facility.
For instance, machines like compressors or generators can make a lot of noise and create a lot of vibration in a workspace, so implementing sound-control can allow your staff to work more efficiently and safely, since they won’t be exposed to the loud machinery day in and day out. Sound barrier curtains are also used to be OSHA-compliant for noise level regulations in the workplace. Depending on the level of noise blocking or noise-reducing your space needs, there are a few options available. High noise levels can lead to loss of concentration, accidents, injuries, reduced productivity and long-term hearing loss, so if you’re looking for a way to improve working conditions for your staff, using sound-shielding curtains are an ideal choice.
Separating One Noise Level from Another
Sound barrier wall panels are larger than acoustic baffle systems and are usually used to separate entire sections of a facility so that sound level is much lower on one side. Industrial grade sound curtains are comprised of a combination of sound wave absorption material, noise barrier membranes, and a durable outer layer.
This composition helps block some of the sound from a loud area from “leaking” into another area. Noise control panels can reduce the transmission of sound—sound that can be harmful to peoples’ hearing, so if you’re looking to separate a loud area, using sound dampening curtains can be very helpful.
