Auralex Acoustics has introduced new SheetBlok-AF Sound Isolation Barrier material, designed for system integrators seeking sound isolation solutions for both new construction and retrofit situations in mind.
SheetBlok-AF is a thin, dense isolator with a Class A fire-rated PVC laminate on its surface for a finished aesthetic. Intended as a solution for improved sound isolation between adjacent spaces, SheetBlok-AF can be implemented anywhere an increase in sound isolation is desired.
SheetBlok-AF is at least 6 dB more effective than solid lead at stopping the transmission of sound. It acts as a thin, dense sound barrier layer in wall, ceiling and floor systems and is most effective when used as one component of a multi-layered construction scheme.
However, SheetBlok-AF can be applied directly over the existing wall, and using Auralex’s proprietary base-coat paint (available in 1-gallon or 5-gallon containers), SheetBlok-AF is fully paintable using any latex paint, coordinating it with any decor.
SheetBlok-AF is supplied in 4’x10’ sheets that can be trimmed for custom fit. It is affixed with trowel-applied adhesive, which allows proper positioning and alignment during installation. With careful installation techniques, a virtually seamless appearance will result.
