QuietScreenTM | Outdoor Air Conditioning (A/C) Unit Noise Control

The noise generated by outdoor air conditioning units (A/C) is a combination of mid to high frequency noise generated by the compressors (bottom of the unit) and low frequency noise being generated by the up-blast fans (top of unit). In order to successfully treat the noise it is important that both aspects are properly analyzed and addressed.

Kinetics QuietScreen is a cost effective solution, delivering optimum noise control - blocking and absorbing sound; and can be applied to a variety of surfaces.

The QuietScreen-100BQQ is UV, flame, and rot resistant, and exhibits a wide temperature operating range, not affected by moisture, cleanable with a long service life. Each QuietScreen comes with heavy-duty grommets along the sides to bolt, screw or cable tie to a fence or wall.

Disclaimer: Proper clearance between screen and A/C unit must be observed as required by the A/C unit manufacturer’s guidelines.
