Acoustiblok: Residential VillasResidential Villas

The noises of everyday life can be exhausting. Your home should be your refuge from the hustle and bustle of life and allow you to spend stress free time with family and friends. Unfortunately, contractors rarely think of the acoustical value of this place that you will call home! This means that sounds that occur every day may cause you undue stress due to the way your home is built.

Think about it - the dishwasher, icemaker, washer/dryer, shower, toilet, game room, home cinema, Garage door opener, Air conditioners, and that is just the noises inside! What about the invasive environmental noises that surround many cities, and communities. Those noises will find a way in! Acoustiblok is a great product to add to any residential structure that will have the above situations affecting its livability. These places are not just villas, they are your homes, and you don't have to settle for putting up with these noise pollutants of life just because they exist.

Think of the acoustical qualities of the home as an amenity for good health. Fancy cabinets, exotic floors, and gold faucets will not help you live longer or healthier. Eliminating stress will! It's been medically proven that noise evokes a subliminal condition of stress on humans. This affects our moods, our ability to concentrate, and are nervous system. If your brain is attempting to block out unwanted noises, it is more difficult to focus on the very event-taking place at that time that you are interested in. So think about these things when designing before purchasing your new home.

Acoustiblok 4.88 is the solution for dramatically reducing the sound transmissions through walls, ceilings and floors. The unique linear attenuation that is created when Acoustiblok 4.88 is added to gypsum assemblies provides enhanced noise isolation at frequency ranges that gypsum inherently have deficiencies. These frequency ranges I speak of are still evident with as much as 4 layers of gypsum applied to a wall assembly. Acoustiblok 4.88 changes the internal damping of the wall. Acoustiblok 4.88 not only adds essential mass to the wall, but it also enhances the flexibility and stiffness changing the natural resonance of the structure. This is why a wall with Acoustiblok 4.88 has a more linear (without dramatic dips and peaks) transmission loss than that of multiple layers of Gypsum or hybrid gypsum designs encompassing adhesives and other variations.
