Somers Maximum Security Prison needed a room where a judge, witnesses, and Inmates would gather for a trial at the facility. The room chosen, surrounded by glass, needed acoustical treatment. All Noise Control Quilted Fiberglass Absorbers were chosen to surround the top perimeter.
Quilted Fiberglass Absorbers are soft, porous, open-celled materials that are used to reduce the reflection of sound waves. As a result, reverberation time and ambient noise levels are reduced thereby improving communication in the room. Quilted fiberglass absorbers are a type of soundproofing material that is used to reduce noise levels in a given area. Quilted fiberglass absorbers are made up of two layers of fiberglass, with a layer of air in between them. The fiberglass fibers are able to deflect sound waves, and the air between the layers helps to absorb them. They are typically used in industrial settings, where there is a need to reduce noise levels from machinery or other sources. They are also often used in recording studios, to ensure that the recordings are free from unwanted noise. They can be purchased in a variety of thicknesses and densities, depending on the amount of sound reduction required. They are an effective way to reduce noise levels in a given area and can be used in a variety of settings.
Acoustical Ceiling Baffles were also suspended from the ceiling to help reduce reverberation problems in the room as well.
