- PRESS RELEASE
Acoustiblok sound proofing company announced that a new formula of their 1/8" material mounted with a 1/4" strip of ThermaBlok produced an amazing 22% increase in R Value (thermal insulation) when added to a stud wall.
Acoustiblok stated that "while our soundproofing product continues to receive worldwide attention (even awards in the British House of Commons), many have raised the question of thermal value considering the rising energy costs.
ThermaBlok is truly a revolutionary break through. It is a new "nanoparticle technology" which was developed in the aerospace industry and used on the space shuttle. Because of its molecular structure it has the absolute lowest thermal conductivity of any solid material known.
The audio test of the assembly has produced an STC of virtually equivalent to 24' of poured concrete. Acoustiblok material is unique in the soundproofing industry, as it neither stops nor absorbs sound as other noise abatement methods attempt to do, but actually changes the acoustical energy into inaudible friction energy as it vibrates from sound waves, termed Isothermal adiabatic.
The product is easy to install, stapling or screwing the 1/8" thick material to the studs before putting on drywall. Acoustiblok is a heavy mineral filled viscoelastic polymer, UL (Underwriters Laboratories) approved for over 270 types of construction and achieved the highest rating of mold /mildew free, 10.
Unlike many new building products that are viewed as an added expense, Acoustiblok is marketed as an "upgrade" by developers adding to the long term value and resale attractiveness of the property, says Faisal Farooq, CEO, Universal Biometric.
In hotels, where noise is the number one complaint (J.D Power and Associates survey), they have found the public willing to pay an additional charge for a "quite" room. In addition to added privacy and energy savings, it resolves a new expense developers are facing today - noise litigation. Noise and the associated lack of privacy represent the number one complaint and the overall number two in litigations involving multi family units.
Universal Biometric is the sole distributor for Acoustiblok sound proofing materials in the Gulf region of UAE, Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman, Lebanon, Iraq and Egypt.
