QUIET BOARD™ Sound Silencer for Effective Noise Control
QUIET BOARD™ sound and noise silencer is used frequently in many areas within a school for effective noise control. QUIET BOARD™ is comprised of porous expanded polypropylene beads which are formed into a semi-rigid, water resistant panel. Sound travels into the panel where it is absorbed. QUIET BOARD™ is a washable, lightweight and impact resistant product with very good resistance to chemicals, bacteria and fungi.

QUIET BOARD™ can be installed as a wall panel, ceiling tile and hanging baffle. Applications include, but are not limited to, classrooms, locker rooms, auditoriums, gymnasiums, laboratories, computer rooms, offices, and cafeterias.



How can reverberation be reduced in the school setting?

Reverberation can be reduced by adding sound absorbing materials to the walls, floor, or ceiling. Sound absorbing materials are porous; the sound waves enter the small cracks, holes, and fissures of the material, the sound waves are deflected and broken up, and the noise is reduced. To significantly reduce reverberation, up to 1/4 of the hard surface areas should be covered with sound absorbing material.

What products will reduce echo and reverberation in the classroom?

Materials that effectively reduce echo and reverberation must be porous, composed of small cells that allow sound waves to dissipate their energy within the material. While these materials can be very durable, they are often "soft" and thus are best installed, in a school setting, above the reach of students. Panels may be effectively installed above lockers in hallways and above the chalkboards and bulletin boards in the classroom. For larger areas such as cafeterias and auditoriums, the wall area alone may not be enough, so additional sound absorbing panels or baffles can be hung from the ceiling to reduce reverberation. Some of the acoustic panels described below can easily do light duty as bulletin boards, where tacks and pins can post materials that are changed infrequently. It is recommended that these panels not be painted as that will reduce their ability to absorb sound and compromise their effectiveness.

Consider the following features when selecting acoustic products for your specific application.

  • Flammability (check the local fire codes)
  • Resistance to molds, fungi, and bacteria
  • Resistance to moisture
  • Washable
  • Attractive appearance
  • Durable, impact resistant

QUIET BOARD™ Cutting Method
  • Mark the QUIET BOARD™ panel at the desired demensions.
  • Place the panel on the edge of a table or work bench. Doing this provides adequate space for the serrated knife to travel totally through the QUIET BOARD™ panel.
  • Using a straight edge as a guide, cut the panel with the serrated knife using a sawing motion.
  • Firmly hold the serrated knife at a 30 – 45 degree angle as you cut.
  • To achieve a 90 degree edge, keep the serrated knife square with the panel as you cut.
