Contractor/Builders & Construction
John Mirenda Construction LLC needed a solution for privacy issues in a commercial office space, Regency Tower Office Building. Noise was traveling in and out of office units that required soundproofing solutions to improve office noise quality and especially privacy. All Noise Control was proud to acquire Mirenda construction as a new customer by offering them the ideal solution that fit within their budget and solved their needs.
Soundproofing Case Study
DYNAMIC TESTING WAS EXPERIENCING SERIOUS NOISE ISSUES, AND CAME TO US TO PROVIDE A SOLUTION FOR (2) 4-SIDED ENCLOSURES.
THE OBJECTIVE WAS TO OUTLINE SOUNDPROOFING BLANKET MATERIAL TO TESTING ENCLOSURES, TO GIVE AN OVERALL STC RATING OF 29, WHICH WOULD REDUCE THE DB RATING BY 15-20 DECIBELS.
In the heart if Texas, Milan middle school had a noise reverberation problem typical to institution spaces such as gyms, cafeterias, auditorium and general purpose rooms. We all associate the echoes, noise and reverberation of sound with gyms, pool areas & large auditorium / multipurpose rooms and certainly can relate to the high noise levels in these types of rooms. In this middle school gymnasium (a problem in virtual all gymnasiums), the sound bounces off the walls more than the basketballs. Do to the volume and space in these rooms and lack of noise absorbents, the noise grows and creates echoes and reverberation seriously impeding speech intelligibility. When the gym was in use, the conversation next to you was indistinguishable from the conversation across the floor. During sporting events, the noise became unbearable with the gym full of fans, parents and students. The noise levels at sporting events Is already an unhealthy exposure to high decibels especially with no acoustic noise control absorbents in place.
Classroom design and layouts with good acoustics help students understand what educators are teaching and allows students to have a better understanding of the lessons with fewer distractions.
Proper design and layout in a classroom environment will add acoustical wall panels or acoustical ceiling tiles to break up the hard wall and ceiling surfaces used in typical classroom environment.
Materials to reduce noise and to create a learning-friendly classroom design include Soundproofing and Isolation products materials:
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.

HHI Corporation contacted All Noise Control; they needed a resolution to a noise pollution that would prevent echoing within the room, also to prevent vibration noise troubles in large place as well with noise going out. The main objective of the project was to avert the echoing, and to prevent sound exposure noises within the project.
We have listed below some of the most common questions and their answers in hopes of providing basic knowledge related to noise, and noise control products and systems.
What is Noise?
Noise is defined as unwanted sound. Unwanted sound can be hazardous to your hearing or can be simply disturbing, interfering or annoying. Sound does not have to be loud to be unwanted.
A & C Mold Company contacted All Noise Control and after discussing their application All Noise Control provided A & C Mold Company with a solution suggesting using the acoustical product ANC-AB12 that would help them with soundproofing issues they are experiencing.
