Reducing Kennel Noise
There are two primary concerns with kennel noise that we hear from our customers. Either the noise is bleeeding out of the boarding area and having a negative impact on the surrounding office space and/or nearby neighbors, or the level of noise within the boarding area is just too loud. In either case, proper soundproofing treatments can help reduce the exposure levels and make the space more user friendly, for both people and animals.
Kennel Soundproofing Treatment
To isolate barking dog noise and block the bleed of the noise out of the room, vist our seciton on Soundproofing a Wall. There we guide our clients through the layering techniques involved in soundproofing a common wall or ceiling using our sound barrier membrane dB-Bloc. The treatment will protect the isolate your kennel noise to within your room.
To control the noise exposure levels within the boarding room itself, the treatment converts to a sound panel treatment. Sound panels will effectively absorb echoes within the space, reducing the exposure level to noies for both people and animals. Employees are more comfortable, dogs are more comfortable, customers are more pleased with the environment, worker productivity improves. For Kennels taller than 10' in height, the VET Baffles are the ideal treatment. They hang vertically in rows and columns from your ceiling to deliver this intended effect. For lower ceiling heights, convert to a wall mounted version called VET Panel. Both of these products are class A fire rated, waterproof, easy to self install, available in dozens of colors, and will combine to produce the collapse in perimeter noise that you are seeking.

Results for Soundproofing Your Kennel
When the perimeter noise in a kennel collapses, the dogs are more comfortable. The employees are happier. The surrounding work environment is more productive, and customers are more likely than not to become repeat clients. For kennels untreated for noise, the opposite holds true. Unwelcome exposure to noise will deplete worker morale, drive clients away, and produce more stress in the dogs. Our VET Baffle system is easy to diagnose, easy to produce, easy to ship, easy to install, and is one of our most cost effective sound absorbing panels found here on our website. The key to the success of the treatment is to ensure that you do not under treat your space. Call for a free Room Analysis to determine your number.
