Federal, state and local government buildings often require high levels of quiet. Court room walls must be soundproof. Schools must provide places that promote concentration. Libraries must be dead quiet. Government-funded construction demands high Sound Transmission Class rating products that are tested to construction industry standards, minimize liability for the architect, GC and builder, and do the job with least material and labor cost. Serious Energy's products meet those criteria.
Military construction is particularly demanding, and Serious Energy has the most advanced, and lowest cost, full SCIF solution in QuietRF. The military operates in high-noise areas – heavy trucks, fighting vehicles, high-speed aircraft, ordnance. Field operations demand speed: temporary barracks or field command posts need to be built with minimum material movement and time.
Achieving high STC ratings for walls and ceilings (or RF shielding) has been a costly enterprise. Serious Energy offers construction professionals a complete line of high-performance products to soundproof walls and ceilings to meet the demands of civilian and military construction. The installation can be easily done either at time of new construction or as a renovation or remodel project.
The most effective way to mitigate noise in government facilities is to (i) identify and measure the noise source, both internal and external; (ii) set a dB goal for the desired level of quiet, and translate that goal into the appropriate Sound Transmission Class using the formula “dB in noisy area minus dB desired in quiet area = required STC”; (iii) select and specify the appropriate Serious Energy's soundproofing products for your project.
