Designed for both new construction and retrofit projects, Auralex’s SheetBlok-AF is a thin, dense isolator with a Class A fire-rated PVC laminate on its surface for a finished aesthetic. Intended as a solution for improved sound isolation between adjacent spaces, SheetBlok-AF can be implemented in home theaters, apartments, listening spaces, studios, offices and anywhere an increase in sound isolation is desired.
Auralex says SheetBlok-AF is at least 6dB more effective than solid lead at stopping sound transmission. It acts as a sound barrier layer in wall, ceiling and floor systems and is most effective when used as one component of a multi-layered construction scheme. SheetBlok-AF can be applied directly over the existing wall, and using Auralex’s proprietary base-coat paint (available in 1- or 5-gallon containers), SheetBlok-AF is fully paintable using any latex paint, coordinating it with any decor.
The product is supplied in 4x10-foot sheets that can be trimmed for custom fit. It is affixed with trowel-applied adhesive, which allows proper positioning and alignment during installation. The company says that with careful installation techniques, a virtually seamless appearance will result.
