Stoney Creek, ON. (PRWEB) April 26, 2013
WalkersClub Canada, an abatement company based in Stoney Creek, Ontario, now offers acoustic insulation material as part of their expansion into soundproofing abatement. Their acoustic fibreglass board, SilentFiber, provides abatement specialists, contractors, and builders with a simple soundproofing option for settings with excess noise. The company views noise pollution as an abatement issue that is just as important as asbestos or lead contamination, and therefore believes it deserves the same amount of attention to reduce it.
The SilentFiber is a lightweight acoustic insulation board that gives abatement specialists control over noise pollution in an environment. The board absorbs sound, since it reduces the boundary reflections and reduces room reverberation. Those who use the board can tailor it to their needs, and they can do so by trimming the size with a knife or shears.
The SilentFiber also demonstrates versatility, since abatement specialists can mount the insulation board on a wall or ceiling. Specialists can also use the SilentFiber to create soffit, and corner bass traps for further noise reduction. The board is available in three sizes of thickness in 7/8”- 1”, 2”, and 4”. There are also two styles available, Fiberglass Mat and Fiberglass Plain.
WalkersClub Canada is aware that noise pollution results in more than simple annoyance. Excess noise affects the human body in ways that many people are unaware of. One of the most understood effects of noise pollution is accelerated hearing loss. Hearing loss occurs naturally in advanced age, but the process speeds up when excess noise frequently enters the ear. Another hearing problem associated with too much noise is tinnitus.
Scientists and medical professionals also have strong evidence that excessive noise affects cardiovascular health. According to their observations, exposure to higher decibel ranges trigger hormones (such as cortisol and adrenaline), which can lead to high blood pressure and even heart attacks, if the noise is constant. Other concerning effects include elevated stress and physical defects in unborn children. Expectant mothers who expose themselves to noisy environments may put their unborn children at risk for birth defects, such as a cleft palate or a spinal defect.
While some environments and settings naturally lend themselves to louder sound, there is still a need for adequate soundproofing equipment. When noise grows so great that an individual can't hear themselves or becomes agitated, those who manage the environment need to invest in functional soundproofing material. WalkersClub Canada hopes that their SilentFiber products become one of the tools of choice to combat the effects of noise pollution. Along with education on the issue of noise pollution, the company looks to make their name known as a top contributor to the safety of Canadians in relation to noise exposure.
