Traffic, the neighbor’s dog barking, and many other environmental noises can decrease quality of life. If you live close to the highway, or perhaps near a commercial or industrial area, soundproofing inside your home might not be enough. Implementing a soundproof privacy fence can give you extra privacy, and the peace and quiet you deserve.
Build a DIY Soundproof Privacy Fence with the Fence Blokker
The Fence Blokker is a special product made from Mass Loaded Vinyl (MLV). A dense but flexible soundproofing polymer that allows for sound dampening and sound blocking. This product is engineered to block and deflect soundwaves, all while being resistant to weathering conditions. The Fence Blokker comes reinforced with a carbon-fiber layer and UV-protection. It will not shrink or rot, and it won’t cause mold, mildew, or metal corrosion, making it an ideal solution for those who live in humid climates or with a lot of precipitation.
The product can be easily attached to many types of fencing, grating, and construction barriers. The Fence Blokker can also be painted with acrylic latex vinyl-based paint to fit residential spaces and can reduce sound transmission by 70-85%.
