Soundproofing Installation Instructions: Acoustical Pipe Lagging

Installation Instructions: Acoustical Pipe Lagging
(ANC-WB-21 and ANC-WB42)

1. Determine the circumference of the duct or pipe to be wrapped. Note additional length required to accommodate thickness of material. Add 2–4 inches overlap of product onto itself. (Note: Quilted Fiberglass side goes up against the Duct or Pipe)

2. Utilizing standard 54″ wide rolls, cut length as determined above.

What is soundproofing?

Soundproofing is defined as any method of reducing the ability of sound to travel between point A and point B, and is accomplished by the reduction of noise and the absorption of noise. A requirement in many professional recording studios, soundproofing is also becoming popular in residential structures, especially multi-family structures like apartments and condominiums wherein tenants share walls.

Acoustic Fabrics

Acoustic fabrics are simply versatile, easy to retrofit, cost-effective with outstanding noise absorption qualities Our acoustic fabrics can be wrapped on acoustic board and other panel materials like other fabrics you may find in the acoustic market. However, ours is developed to also uniquely be fitted to any solid wall and still achieve outstanding NRC values. The clear advantages of ANC acoustic fabric are its simple easy, installation and ability to retrofit in virtually any existing commercial space as well as it is inexpensive. Where speech intelligibility is critical, this fabric is an excellent choice for any conference room, classroom, commercial or office space.

Soundproofing

Soundproofing is any means of reducing the sound pressure with respect to a specified sound source and receptor. There are several basic approaches to reducing sound: increasing the distance between source and receiver, using noise barriers to block or absorb the energy of the sound waves, using damping structures such as sound baffles, or using active anti-noise sound generators.

How to Soundproof a Generator

Generators are often noisy an effective solution is often required to suppress the noise emitted from them. Pump noise is usually a nuisance because they are sitting on comparatively lightweight structures. The best way to soundproof and to reduce any noise from a generator regardless of size is to enclose it within a Floor Mounted 4-Sided Acoustic blanket Enclosure. For best results the enclosure should be as large as possible to allow less heat buildup and also to be more effective at reducing the noise output from reaching other areas and acoustically isolating the pump to contain structure borne sound being transmitted from where it is mounted.

Acoustical Blankets Suspended Walls Installation

1. Layout and mark area to be enclosed.

2. While the hardware is on the ground, slide roller track (16 RT) through connectors to designated locations. To make sliding roller track into connectors easier, squeeze ends of roller track together as you slide into the end of connector. Where two pieces of track meet inside a connector make sure to deburr the ends of the track and push the butting ends together so that they fit snugly. This prevents the rollers from getting stuck in a “pot hole” inside the connector. Be sure to see the track orientation detail to ensure that the enclosure is assembled as designed.

Acoustic Blankets ANC-AB12 Installation

Material typically required to complete installation: ANC-AB12, self-tapping screws or nails appropriate for substrate, or other framing material (optional)

1. Determine the area to be covered.

2. If the material is provided in bound pieces (no grommets or Velcro along any edge)

– Using a self-tapping screw that is appropriate for the substrate screw directly through the ANC-AB12 material into the wall or framing material.

– You may use a washer, between the screw and the ANC-AB12, to help secure the material in place
