Sorbothane® Damps Unwanted Noise & Vibration
For commercial and consumer products, noise dampening and vibration control are important for the personal comfort, health, and sometimes safety of the people in proximity to the products that produce loud sounds and vibrations.
Noise Dampening Material
We can all agree, nothing is more annoying than going to your favorite coffee house and having to endure the loud noise of a blender over and over while trying to enjoy a quiet moment. It ruins the customer experience and can also adversely affect the hearing of the operator. But how can an inherently loud machine be quieter? With a one-of-a-kind sound dampening material.
Sorbothane® is an effective sound dampening material that provides dramatic vibration and sound reduction. Sorbothane’s properties are instrumental in reducing the noise level of commercial blenders for Vitamix. This enables Vitamix blenders to be used for front-of-house placement and usage in high-end bars and coffee houses. Now employees make and sell blended products with less sound pollution and customers can purchase and enjoy their blended beverages in a quieter environment.
Anti Vibration Material
For clear, precise audiovisual output, a vibration absorbing material is paramount for quality results. Audiophiles worldwide recognize Sorbothane® as the premier material for canceling vibrations that adversely affect audio and video performance.
Sorbothane® is the vibration isolation solution for all Hi-Fi and Audio equipment such as speakers and equipment stands and supports including a vibration reducing microphone mount. It can be used under CD players, turntables, amplifiers, tuners, and any other Hi-Fi components. In fact, Sorbothane® Sheets are frequently used to line the walls of acoustic test chambers and wave tanks.
Sorbothane® audio isolation feet remove the muddying effects of vibration from the signal chain – resulting in a cleaner, purer audio, and video. The audiovisual business is not the only consumer placement of Sorbothane’s vibration dampening pads, it is used in household appliances too.
To reduce the annoying vibrations caused by second-floor washing machines, a Sorbothane® product was developed called Silent Feet. These vibration dampening pads absorb excessive vibration while the machine is in use, creating a more tranquil living space when the wash just cannot wait until after the baby’s naptime.
A 100% unique material - Sorbothane® isolates vibration and damps undesirable noise in consumer and commercial appliances.
