Loud Computer Racks

Craig Martin serves as FM Lab Manager in Engineering Services for Intel’s Folsom, CA location. Craig’s team was experiencing unwelcome noise levels stemming from their computer rack room and reached out to NetWell Noise Control for some help and advice. The noise was transmitting through common walls separating the computer room from adjoining offices. Craig’s goal was to isolate and contain the noise to within the computer room and protect the perimeter office space.

The Treatment

When NetWell Noise Control was contacted by Craig, a lot set of QBS Sound Barrier Blankets were introduced as the solution. These noise reduction curtains help combat up to 90% of unwanted noise from bleeding through a common surface. The goal was to retrofit the blankets to the existing side and front walls to the room, including a custom door cover. Along the back wall, a corresponding set of class A fire rated Pyramid Acoustic Foam panels were installed to help absorb the energy that was now being blocked/contained to within the space.

QBS Sound Blankets are Class A fire rated sound barrier curtain systems that can be custom cut to match the cavity size of any client’s needs. The blankets free hang as sound isolation walls, from floor-mounted frames, against common walls, or suspended from the ceiling to deliver up to a 90% collapse in exposure levels to unwelcome noise.

Results

As a result of the treatment, the QBS Sound Barrier application was able to reduce the bleed of noise out of the room. A field stitching kit was included with the order, giving Intel the opportunity to do some custom trimming around the room, sealing the room tight for leakage. The Pyramids along the back wall then helped reduce the level of noise in the room. When the project was done, all adjoining spaces at Intel were now protected from the computer rack noise.

A big thank you to NetWell Noise Control for solving our computer rack noise. The adjoining spaces in our building now enjoy premium sound quality, thanks for your QBS blankets. We will look to work with you again.
