Sound Attenuation Systems

The founders of Hacker Industries, Inc. helped write the first sound code in the United States. From those early efforts, we have continued to stay on the leading edge of technologies for improving noise control in lightweight structures. We currently offer two types of solutions to noise problems: entangled net sound mats under the FIRM-FILL SCM Brand and Recycled Rubber Mats under the Hacker Sound Mat Brand.

Featured Application

FIRM-FILL® SCM is a component in an overall floor/ceiling assembly. Its performance is affected by every other component and the likelihood of achieving code compliance is contingent upon many other trades including (but not limited to) framers, plumbers and drywall contractors. Developers and general contractors are responsible for building properly and testing field performance as soon as possible in order to assure the reliability of the project.

WARNING: Laboratory tests are not a guarantee of field performance because of the issues noted above and many other design errors that may occur. Please consult a professional acoustical consultant to assure plans are proper and that the floor/ceiling assembly can perform to expectations.
