Division 9 Ebook Page 131 SelectSound’ Black Acoustic Board Data/Submittal Sheet

Product Data Sheet SELECTSOUND BLACK ACOUSTIC BOARD SUPERIOR ACOUSTICAL PERFORMANCE SelectSound Black acoustic board provides excellent acoustical performance for multiplex theaters, sound studios and performing arts centers. Depending on specified thickness, SelectSound Black acoustic board absorbs up to 100% of the sound striking its surface. SelectSound Black acoustic board helps provide the highest quality audio reproduction by reducing sound reverberation within spaces. Sound transfer from space to space is also noticeably reduced. DURABLE MATERIAL COMPOSITION SelectSound Black acoustic board is dimensionally stable and will not shrink or warp. The board's resilient composition resists job-site damage. When necessary, the durable black mat facing may be cleaned by vacuuming. SelectSound Black acoustic board, composed of inorganic glass fibers, will not rot or mildew and is noncorrosive to steel, copper and aluminum. FAST, HIGH QUALITY INSTALLATION Lightweight and resilient, SelectSound Black acoustic board is easy to handle, fabricate and install. Both stick pins and adhesives can be used to secure boards to drywall, concrete block or precast concrete. SIZE AVAILABILITY SelectSound Black acoustic board is available in 48" x 96" size. It can also be pre-cut in custom sizes to improve productivity and speed installation. BLACK CORE WITH DARK BLACK FINISH SURFACE SelectSound Black acoustic board has a gray/black fiber glass core with a black mat finish that provides low light reflectivity. The black surface is ideal for eliminating screen light reflections and preventing insulation from showing through most surface treatments. DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS Acoustical performance of interior surfaces can generally be improved by increasing acoustical material thickness. SelectSound Black acoustic board can be specified for use in conjunction with other Owens Corning acoustical materials to provide additional performance. Owens Corning also manufactures SelectSound Black acoustic blanket. This roll product is ideal for use behind fabric on theater walls, in sound studios and performing arts centers. APPLICABLE STANDARDS The noise reduction coefficients of SelectSound Black acoustic board were derived from tests conducted in accordance with ASTM C 423 on a Type A mounting. INSTALLATION PROCEDURE SelectSound Black acoustic board can be installed on drywall, concrete block or precast concrete using impaling pins or appropriate adhesives. When installing insulation with adhesive, follow adhesive manufacturer's recommendations for surface preparation and pattern. When using impaling pins, follow the pin manufacturer's recommendations for surface preparation, location and amount of pins. Pin length should be selected to ensure tight fit. Where subject to physical contact, protect pin tips. Keep product dry during shipping, storage and installation.

These standards should be used to measure and describe the properties of materials, products or assemblies in response to heat and flame under controlled laboratory conditions and should not be used to describe or appraise the fire hazard or fire risk of materials, products or assemblies under actual fire conditions. However, results of this test may be used as elements of a fire risk assessment which takes into account all of the factors which are pertinent to an assessment of the fire hazard of a particular end use. Values are reported to the nearest 5 rating.
