Acoustical Performance

Sound Control

Rooms are noticeably quieter with Nu-Wool Premium Cellulose Insulation, which deadens the transfer of sound from one room to another. Hotels, motels, apartments, hospitals, nursing homes, schools, churches, and multi-unit complexes use Nu-Wool Premium Cellulose Insulation in their walls, floors and attics for sound control. Even sound studios use Nu-Wool  Premium Cellulose Insulation for its superior acoustical properties.

Nu-Wool Premium Cellulose Insulation is acoustically superior

Nu-Wool Premium Cellulose Insulation has been tested at Riverbank Acoustical Laboratories for Sound Transmission Classifications (STC). In full-scale wall testing, Nu-Wool Premium Cellulose Insulation greatly reduces the movement of airborne sound from one room to an adjacent room. This added benefit of Nu-Wool Premium Cellulose Insulation is especially important for apartments, condominiums, offices and hotels, but is also useful to reduce sound in laundry rooms, mechanical rooms, family rooms and walls containing noisy water pipes. Buildings insulated with Nu-Wool Premium Cellulose Insulation have a noticeable "quietness". The sharp sounds that easily transmit through fiberglass insulated structures are subdued by the increased mass of  Nu-Wool Premium Cellulose Insulation.
