How to Eliminate Noise in an Industrial Environment

Mechanical piping systems can produce significant noise if they are not properly insulated. A well designed acoustical lagging system, will provide effective noise reduction and also block noise. If the reduction of noise is required, Vinaflex™ VP is the answer.


The Solution:

Vinaflex™ VP noise barrier consists of a flexible, mass loaded vinyl (MLV) barrier laminated to a quilted fiberglass decoupler on one or both sides. The combination forms a thin, light-weight acoustical product that displays excellent mechanical properties while providing superior sound transmission loss.

How it Works:

Sound waves originating from the source will be initially absorbed by the fiberglass and then blocked by the MLV. Any reflected sound wave component will be further dissipated, into the fiberglass absorber.



  • Combines noise barrier and sound absorption properties
  • Scrim reinforced foil finish on one side
  • 1” or 2” thick fiberglass options
  • Easy to install


Suggested Applications:

  • Pipes
  • Waste pipes
  • Ducts
  • Valves
  • Garbage chutes
  • And other noise problems


Although it is difficult to eliminate all noise in an industrial environment, small changes can make a huge impact, on the reduction of noise levels. For more information on acoustical insulation for lagging applications download our free guide, here.
