Sound Baffles

KB803 heat sealed vinyl covered baffles are an economical solution for noise and reverberation control in industrial, recreational, and other high ceiling spaces.

Description

KB803 Sound Baffles reduce overall noise and reverberation levels, these baffles are suspended from the ceiling as vertical baffles. KB803 acoustic baffles are constructed with a 3 PCF fiberglass core which is encased in a fire retardant vinyl film cover. The vinyl is heat sealed on the edges to create an airtight seam. For ease of installation, each ceiling baffle has brass grommets along the edge. KB803 acoustic baffles are available to meet USDA and FDA requirements using accepted coverings. Suspension grommets can be sealed (optional) for clean room applications.

Application

KB803 Sound Baffles are used to reduce overall noise levels in industrial, recreational, and other high noise areas, and are suspended from above or from the structure near the noise source.
