Shannon Enterprises of W.N.Y. Inc., a designer and maker of reusable thermal and acoustic insulation, has developed a closed-cell insulation system called the Acoustic Shield to reduce sound emanating from heating, cooling and power-generating components found at schools and medical campuses, onboard marine vessels, inside manufacturing facilities and near retail and residential locations.
Shannon introduced its Acoustic Shield to give engineers, specifiers and facility managers a high-value offering for insulating compressors, pumps, ducting, motors and more. When a noise reduction of, say, 5 dBA at a distance of 1 meter from a component will suffice, the Acoustic Shield is an economical alternative to Shannon’s Acoustic Blanket Insulation.
Shannon produces its shield with a CAD/CNC technology and tailors each Acoustic Shield to match any component or surface condition. The Shannon specification for the Acoustic Shield is LT300AS.
Along with reducing noise, Shannon manufactures the Acoustic Shield in a way that allows operators to install the product on any application with ease and access, inspect, service or repair insulated components.
Every Acoustic Shield effectively reduces unwanted noise from work environments, and Shannon manufactures each shield to last 15 years with payback periods ranging six to 24 months. Each shield is OSHA-compliant and ASTM-tested.
Facility managers can use the Acoustic Shield outdoors and indoors and remove and replace the product at will.
