Noise Control and Soundproofing leader ASI now provides a lightweight, fold-out noise blocking screen for generators, pool pumps, AC units and more.

ASI's Portable Outdoor Noise Screen used to quiet AC condensers in a backyard

The Portable Outdoor Noise Screen can be folded out directly next to a noise source not only keeping the noise from reaching neighbors, but making the immediate area quiet, comfortable, and usable.

When it comes to noise control, residential outdoor noise issues are the hardest to treat properly and within budget. This is partly because most outdoor acoustical products are designed for large scale use and to be permanent, raising the price. For smaller scale noise control, the next best option is to build a custom enclosure. But those too can be expensive once sizing and proper ventilation are considered. Also, enclosures will only work properly with the one piece of machinery the enclosure was made for. For small machinery used seasonally like pool pumps, air conditioning condensers, and small electrical generators, neither of these options makes a lot of sense. A large permanent wall cannot be moved with small machinery, and a custom enclosure for each machine would be expensive.

This is why Acoustical Solutions, Inc. now offers their Portable Outdoor Noise Screen. It is a lightweight, fold-out sound barrier. This noise reducing screen was designed for versatility and is perfect for seasonal use in residential applications. With a Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC) of 1.00 and Sound Transmission Class (STC) of up to 31 in the audible frequency range, it reduces noise outside the barrier by 50-70%, while absorbing the waves so they are not reflected back toward the source.

The Portable Outdoor Noise Screen can be folded out directly next to a noise source, not only keeping sound from reaching neighbors, but making the immediate area quiet, comfortable, and usable.

Throughout the year, the Portable Outdoor Noise Screen can be used to:

  •     Block noise from air conditioning condenser units in summer months
  •     Cut noise from pool pumps
  •     Reduce irritating generator noise during power outages
  •     Quiet small equipment on construction sites or for at-home projects

The screen is 42” wide x 36” high when folded and opens to 84” wide. The Portable Outdoor Noise Screen is available in a wood frame and contains a sound absorbing material that faces the noise source.
