The dB Difference

Stopping sound waves is not just about a barrier's thickness.

dB-MAX is a unique material which combines a dense, flexible layer of protection with a fibrous insulation layer. This formula is able to trap sounds of all different wavelengths and keep them out of your space!

Eco-Friendly

dB-MAX is proudly made with post industrial recycled material that would otherwise be sent to a landfill.

dB-MAX is also 100% recyclable at end-of-life.

LEED credits are available with the use of dB-MAX.

Unlike PVC, our EVA does not harden over time or pose health risk if burned.

*Isolates impact noises & airborne noise

dB-MAX Product Data - Acoustical Barrier & Isolator

Real-World Performance

While the STC measurement is an easy-to-use universal measurement of sound transmission, it does not tell the whole story.

The sounds around us come in a wide range of frequencies, but the STC only measures one point in that range - at 500 hz. The values in this table represent the sound lost in transmission (the amount of sound the wall absorbed).


dB-MAX Product Data - Acoustical Barrier & Isolator

Reduce disturbances from airborne and impact noise in new and existing structures:

  • Commercial & residential construction
  • Multi-family living units
  • Hotels
  • Bedrooms
  • Music rooms & home theaters
  • Conference rooms & privacy protected areas


Preparation and Application
  • Surfaces to receive dB-MAX should be clean and dry.
  • Installers should utilize acoustical sealant, tape, sound rated putty and sound isolation materials to preserve the acoustical integrity. Do not use dB-MAX within 2 feet of can light fixtures.
  • Install vertically so seams fall on studs.
  • Attach at the top only with screws and staples. dB-MAX will be secured permanently when the finished wall material is fastened.
  • dB-MAX may be used on existing finished walls and covered with another layer of drywall.
