Sleep Quality

All of our products have been developed with scientific principles that have driven sound-proofing in the construction and entertainment industries for decades. It’s been shown that reduced noise levels increase sleep quality. Our product was designed to meet the standards set by the National Sleep Foundation, which has shown that sleep is dramatically increased when background noise is reduced to 30-40dB.

Sound Blocking

Our research has detailed the ability to reflect, refract, and absorb sound through portals in commercial and residential construction. Our team of engineers has studied acoustical phenomena, and performed a number of trade studies to minimize the cost required to construct a product that will effectively reduce noise through a window or door by 90%. This noise attenuation is accomplished by layering specialized acoustic materials that separately absorb and reflect the sound, preventing it from passing into the “quiet zone” that you want protected.

Materials Research

The materials we use range from hard, dense polymer material to bounce waves back, and soft, porous material that captures the sound like a cave tunnel, and bounces it internally until it slowly dissipates. Our fabrication methods were focused on allowing a very simple installation and disassembly (if preferred).

Sound Absorption

STC (Sound Transmission Classification): This is a measure of the sound blocked from entering the room. It is calculated by measuring how many decibels are reduced at different frequencies. See our results below!

NRC (Noise Reduction Coefficient): This is a measure of how much sound is absorbed. Our sound-absorbing exterior layers soak up sound that does get in, or is generated within the room, so that it does not echo or reverberate within.
