QUIET BARRIER™

QUIET BARRIER™ Superior Soundproofing Material for Blocking Noise.
QUIET BARRIER QUIET BARRIER™ is a flexible, high density material with a smooth surface designed to reduce noise transmission between two spaces. QUIET BARRIER™ is available with a pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) for an easy peel and stick application. QUIET BARRIER™ reduces the transmission of noise through walls, ceilings, and floors. This product can be applied directly to the backside of drywall or attached to the studs/joists prior to application of drywall. Because QUIET BARRIER™ is not UV resistant this material should be shielded from exposure to sunlight. Applications include, but are not limited to, classrooms, locker rooms, auditoriums, gymnasiums, laboratories, computer rooms, offices, and cafeterias.

The two most prevalent noise problems in the school setting are background noise and reverberation.

What is background noise?

There are two types of background noise, that produced outside the building and that produced within the building. Outside noise includes the sound of traffic, airplanes, construction, and playground noise heard within the building. Background noise produced within the building includes that from the HVAC and other utility systems, and noise produced in other parts of the building (students in hallways, band practice, impact noise from the room above) that is heard within the closed classroom.

What does research show about noise, listening, and learning?

We all know how hard it is to understand speech in noisy situations. A conversation in a noisy restaurant or construction noise outside the office window can make listening difficult for adults. For children, whose listening and language skills are not yet well developed, it's even more difficult. Research indicates that background noise and reverberation can adversely affect learning for young children. It is more difficult for them to hear individual sounds clearly, as when learning to read and spell, and their concentration is also compromised. Poor classroom acoustics are also an educational barrier for children who are hearing or speech impaired, have temporary hearing loss (due to colds or infection), or learning disabilities. For students whose home language is different than the teaching language, learning is also difficult in classrooms that have poor acoustics.

Research shows that all children will benefit from classrooms with low background noise and short reverberation times. Even children with hearing in normal ranges can miss as much as one-third of the words in a teacher's message when they are listening in noise. For students to understand what they are being told, the teacher needs to have a voice volume that is noticeably louder than the background noise in the room. If the room is too noisy, even the most expert teacher will have difficulty achieving sufficient loudness for good understanding.
