Soundproofing & Sound Absorbing Materials

When interior designers mention a sound barrier, they aren’t talking about moving faster than the speed of sound or some advanced sci-fi technology. A sound barrier is a sheet of sound-dampening material such as mass loaded vinyl used to absorb and reduce both impact and airborne sounds. Mass loaded vinyl barriers are common since they are an effective and affordable sound control solution that is easy to install. Simply attach the sound-absorbing material to the stud or joists of a wall, allowing fast DIY soundproofing that anyone can accomplish.

Choose from our wide selection of acoustic solutions, including soundproofing sheets and sound control blankets for covering large spaces. We also have soundproofing tape options available, such as mass-loaded vinyl seam tape to help reduce sound leaks between the sheets of soundproof barriers. Find effective soundproofing materials for your home or office studio with high STC ratings today.

What is STC?
Sound Transmission Class is the weighted average of the transmission loss between the sound source and the target. It is a rating assigned to a material or an assembly of materials to represent the decibel reduction across frequencies ranging from 125 Hz to 4000 Hz. The difference between the sound source and target in decibels, is referred to as transmission loss. Measurements are taken at 125, 250, 500, 1000, 2000, and 4000 Hz to arrive at the overall STC rating.
