NASA requires high end fire rated products for test cells

Mr. Oswald of NASA reached out to All Noise Control for help in replacing deteriored foam panels in a test cell used at NASA. The test cells used at NASA are exposed to all types of equipment, engines and combustibles during testing. They required a quality foam panel with high fire ratings. All Noise Control knew that their Class 1 Fire Rated Melamine Foam Panels was ideal for such potentially volitale test environments in addition to being resistant to most organic solvents, alkalis, and diluted acids. The ANC Melamine Foam Panel, when exposed to high heats and open flame, will simply melt without creating smoke. This offers a much safer and controlled foam test cell.

Acoustic Wall Panels for Museum

MOCA – the famous Museum of Contemporary Art in Florida had acoustic problems typical in large spaces. Volume & open spaces, with large flat surfaces are ideal settings for echo, reverberation and other acoustic problems. Visitors could hear whispers across the room making private conversation difficult. MOCA required an absorption material that was aesthetically pleasing and non-distracting – to essentially stop the sound and allow the art to stand out. They needed to absorb the sound bouncing off the ceiling, floor and walls that travelled from exhibit to exhibit, while not interfering or distracting from the artwork displayed. Our ANC-3000 Acoustical Wall Panels was an ideal candidate. It can stand up to high traffic areas while not wearing, is Class A fire rated and available in 48 fabric Guilford colors.

Question:
I need to reduce the noise level reaching a residence located approximately 150 feet from an industrial metal stamping plant. The plant external wall is standard cement block.
