Kinetics KNC noise control curtain systems are modular, reinforced limp mass vinyl panels or vinyl and quilted fiberglass barrier/absorber composites
designed to contain noise or to act as a movable barrier between noisy and quiet areas. KNC curtains incorporate a self-supporting track which allows
the curtain to open for access at virtually any point along the system.
Noise control curtains are available from 0.50 to 2.50 PSF (2.5 to 12.5 kg/m2) surface weight. The systems are typically
used for applications where accessibility, toughness, oil and chemical resistance, and an attractive appearance are required. Curtain systems can
yield noise reduction of 12-15 dBA.
KNC-50C and 100C clearview curtains or windows are available.
KNC-50RB and 100RB are reinforced vinyl barriers.
KNC-50RBQ and 100RBQ have an aluminum-faced, quilted fiberglass absorber towards the noise source to
block sound from escaping and to absorb sound that is reflected.
KNC-50BQQ and 100BQQ are vinyl barriers completely encased in quilted fiberglass absorber and are
designed where additional absorption and Class A flame and smoke test requirements are needed.
Standard BQQ curtain panels are 48" (1219 mm) wide and standard RBQ curtain panels are 54" (1372 mm) wide. BQQ and RBQ are available
in lengths of up to 20' (6096 mm).
Kinetics KSD strip doors and clear vinyl windows are easily incorporated into curtain systems for visual and personnel access.
Common applications are encountered in industrial and commercial facilities. OEM customers incorporate acoustical curtain systems in either
roll form, die-cut or custom system formats. Curtain systems can be used as a partial barrier or complete enclosure around noise sources.
Curtain panels are more versatile and economical than a rigid panel. The acoustical curtain systems can be designed for noise reduction up
to 25 dBA dependent upon the noise source sound spectrum shape (low, mid, high frequency or a combination).
