Acoustical Vinyl Sound Barrier – Mass Loaded Vinyl Barrier, MLV

What is MLV?

Mass Loaded Vinyl (MLV) is a safe, non-toxic noise barrier designed to hang as a limp mass in a variety of soundproofing applications.

What is a soundproofing barrier?

Noise barrier or sound barrier products add mass to a wall, ceiling, floor, or enclosure serving as a highly effective soundproofing solution – at an affordable price. Soundproofing barriers are typically installed directly on the studs or joists to reduce noise transmission between the source of the sound and the destination.

What is STC?

Sound Transmission Class (STC) is a rating assigned to a material or an assembly of  materials representing the transmission loss or reduction in sound between the source and the target.  A standardized test, performed in an acoustics lab, measures the transmission loss between a Sound Source and a room.  Measurements are taken over a range of 6 different frequencies ranging between 125Hz and 4000Hz.  This frequency band covers the speech range.

Vinyl Sound Barrier – This high density thin, weighted Soundproofing barrier, constructed of non reinforced high temperature fused vinyl with no lead filters. Weighs one pound per square foot and is 1/8″ thick. Apply to block transmission of sound through walls, floors, and ceilings. Also effective as a pipe and duct wrap to damper vibrations and reduce noise. Also available in a reinforced version designed to sustain it’s own vertical weight for suspension.

Clear Vinyl Barrier Flexible Reinforced Material

ANC’s Industrial ANC-VB60R flexible noise barrier is a 1 lb psf reinforced loaded vinyl barrier used to stop the transmission of noise from one area to another. Typically used as Barrier panels in an acoustical enclosure, or as the barrier component in Industrial composite products. Curtain panels are typically constructed with grommets across the top and mating hook and loop closures on the vertical edges. Standard rolls measure 54″ wide x 30′ long or 54″ wide x 60′ long.

Soundproofing Vinyl Sound – Barricade Noise Barrier Installation Instructions

First ask us about using a staggered stud or floating wall approach to your construction if possible. The apply the Vinyl Sound Barrier between the studs and sheet rock. Do not glue this directly to a wall for free standing. It;s weight will require the reinforcement of another layer of wall surface to be screwed or nailed over it. Us staples of screws to temporarily hold it up until you get your next wall surface applied. Also a good product for laying on top of your ceiling tiles to “cap” the room with a sound barrier material.
