SoundBounce is a novel, patented, low-frequency acoustic insulation that harnesses the power of metamaterials. Housed in a cellular structure, this game-changing acoustic material has been independently tested to provide unprecedented responsive dampening–up to 1000 times more effectively at low frequencies and, 100 times at other frequencies. It’s 3 times thinner and it can be deployed in many operational environments.
Existing acoustic materials don’t meet the challenges of today’s noisy world.
Machines cannot get both smaller and quieter using existing technology. Thick and heavy slabs of conventional acoustic materials are required to block noise, especially at low frequencies
Industries are facing increasingly stringent regulation. This is being driven by public health considerations and consumer demand. Quiet compact solutions are essential in modern industrial design.
Lack of Innovation
The acoustic material industry hasn’t innovated in decades. Developments have focused on incremental improvements to existing materials, like foams and stone wool’s. Low frequency noise is still the main technical bottleneck.
The material can be configured to attenuate specific frequencies of sound, such as low frequency noise. The system is comprised of two parts – an interior smart material and a cellular housing. SoundBounce uses low cost advanced materials within an enabling patented cellular structure for the effective attenuation of noise. The unique, non-linear physics of the SoundBounce material enable a vastly improved acoustic performance.
– Unrivaled low frequency attenuation
– Thinner than traditional solutions
– Customisable absorption profile
Viscosity of the material reduces in the presence of sound energy, attenuating noise by converting sound energy to kinetic energy in the material.
Cellular housing can be made from a wide variety of materials – chosen to suit the industrial application and the environment.
The mass law dictates that sound absorbed is predicted by the thickness and density of a material. This is not the case with SoundBounce as its attenuation is proportional to the environment.
You can see here from independent testing the vastly improved performance of SoundBounce when compared with the most widely used acoustic materials. A 30 decibel improvement at the low frequencies corresponds to a 1000 times reduction in sound.
