Veneer Matching Techniques

QuietSwing

WOOD VENEER OPTIONS

The way you match veneer sheets can create visual

rhythm and enhance your project. Noise Barriers, LLC.

can provide special sequence matching services for

you for a nominal fee. Contact us for more information.

Here are some of the most common veneer matching approaches:

The Cuts used to make Veneer

Book Matching

Alternating pieces of veneer are

flipped over so they face each

other as do the pages within a

book. This creates a pleasing,

symmetrical pattern.

Pleasing Match

Veneer is matched by color but

not by grain pattern.

Slip Matching

Veneer slices are joined in

sequence without flipping the

pattern. If the grain is straight,

the joints will not be obvious.

Random Match

Random matching is just what

is sounds like. Usually done

with lower grades of veneer,

the leaves may be of varying

width, colors and grains.

Rotary Cut Quarter Slicing Lengthwise Slicing

The log is centered on a lathe and

turned against a broad cutting knife

set into the log at a slight angle.

The slicing is made perpendicular

to the annual growth rings of the

tree. This creates a straight grain

appearance.

This is done from a board of flat

sawn lumber rather than from a log.

A variegated figure is created with

this slice.

Plain Slicing Half-Round Slicing Rift Cut

By slicing parallel to the center of

the log, a raised “cathedral effect”

is formed by the innermost growth

rings.

Sliced on an arc parallel to the

center of the log, this cut achieves a

flat-cut veneer appearance.

This straight grain cut is derived by

slicing red and white oak at a slight

angle to minimize the irregularities

in the wood.

NOISE BARRIERS

FEATURES OF THE QUIETSWING DOOR ASSEMBLY

The following items differentiate the Noise Barriers QuietSwing doors from every other door in the

marketplace. Other manufacturers do not include these features. These features cost more money but

the payoff for the specifier and end used is in field performance.

1st feature we should try to sell is Field Performance vs lab testing. We have a leg up on competitors

when we do.

The following current information below is located in our standard specifications. You all need to know

these and use these to your benefit. Following is a bullet point summary:

• Current Independent Laboratory testing.

• Field Tests.

• Lab Tested to current ASTM Standards.

• Split Frames - walls can be built without the door frames. Doors can be delivered late in

construction cycle.

• Acoustic seals, mortised bottom seal, windows, cam lift hinges, hardware all factory installed. This

reduces the coordination required by the GC and ensures fit and finish. Also eliminated fingerpointing

if there are issues.

• Assembly of the doors, fames and hardware at the factory. Some competitors make doors

and frames in two different facilities. The door and frame then get matched in the field. Some

competitors ship their doors disassembled for field assembly by others. Others supply hardware.

Who ensures the whole system will work properly and perform acoustically?

• Installation by factory trained personnel.

• Field Acoustical Performance Guarantee.

SUBMITTALS:

CERTIFICATION:

• Provide certified laboratory test reports from an independent NVLAP certified acoustics

laboratory showing that a fully operating installation of the specific Sound Control Door/Frame

assembly proposed for installation has been measured in accordance with ASTM E 90-09 and

has met or exceeded the scheduled STC ratings. The test results shall be representative of the

performance of the proposed Sound Control Door/Frame assembly.

• Provide written evidence of at least two acoustic field tests showing that comparable

installations have been measured in excess of a Noise Isolation Class (NIC) which is not more

than six (6) points below the specified STC rating following the procedures set forth in ASTM E

336-90.

QUALITY ASSURANCE:

• Regulatory Requirements:

• Acoustical performance: STC (Sound Transmission Class) of 52.

attachments as necessary to transfer loads to surrounding wall construction. “Split” door frames are

designed to be installed after the walls are constructed.

• Acoustic seals: Side and head of door and frame shall be provided with two (2) sets of factory

installed self-aligning magnetic-compression seals to hold door in closed position by the magnetic

force of perimeter seals. Corners must be mitered and sealed.

• Door Bottom: Bottom of door shall be provided with a factory installed continuous, adjustable,

Teflon coated, neoprene compression seal mortised into the door bottom and designed to

compress against floor as door is closed. Automatic door bottom seals will not be accepted.

• Vision Lights: Factory installed double-glazed windows in dimensions per the door schedule. All

glazing shall be installed by skilled workmen at the manufacturer’s facility.

• Where noted on drawings provide a 12” x 12”, 4” x 30”, 24” x 36 “ or 22” x 60” double glazed

window with glazing thicknesses required to maintain the specified acoustical performance of the

doors. Glazing is factory installed.

HARDWARE:

• Provide minimum two (2) factory installed cam-lift type hinges for each door. Finish of hinges shall

be US26D.

• Locks, pull handles, push plates, and other door hardware as specified in the hardware schedule

will be furnished and factory installed by the sound door supplier. Door leaf and frame for each unit

shall be prepared to receive security locks as specified in the hardware schedule.

FABRICATION:

• Assemble doors using all welded construction conforming to pertinent requirements of AWS D1-

1. Assembly and adjustment of door, frame, acoustic seals and hinges shall be performed at the

factory. Each entire unit shall be shipped to the job site ready for installation and subsequent

operation. No field assembly of doors or frames shall be permitted.

INSTALLATION:

• Installation of door frames, doors perimeter seals, and final adjustments for door operation and for

the design attenuation shall be performed by factory trained personnel under the supervision of the

manufacturer.

ACCEPTANCE TESTING

• At the discretion of the Owner, Architect, or project Acoustical Consultant acoustic performance

testing of the installation may be performed. The cost of such testing is not the responsibility of the

door manufacturer.

• The installation shall be deemed acceptable if the Sound Control Door assemblies meet or exceed a

Noise Isolation Class (NIC) which is not more than six (6) points below the specified STC rating.

Sales features and benefits of Noise Barriers doors:

• All doors are pre-hung in the factory twice to ensure the door frame alignment is true, plumb

and square and to ensure the hardware lines up. We take photographs of each completed

door while hanging to ensure QC.

• The cam hinges are factory shimmed (if necessary) and installed.

• Door hardware is factory installed.

• Magnetic jamb and head seals are factory installed.

• The bottom seal is factory installed

• This is a field adjustable seal which ships to the site in the “up” position to protect it during

construction.

• Do not allow other trades to prop open the door by wedging anything under the door

• Do not allow other trades to run electrical cords under the door.

• The door bottom must be adjusted (lowered) in the prior to field acoustical tests or project

turnover.

• If door includes a window the window is factory installed.

• If the door includes a closer we install a mounting plate to make field installation easier.

• Each door has its own installation drawing and installation detail sheet. This simplifies the

“approval” process, the door ships with the drawing to simplify the receiving and staging

process and the drawings are included with the shipment for the installer to use.

• Doors and frames are “match” marked. Each door should be used with its corresponding

frame. Do not mix frames and door leaves.

• The doors and frames come with a standard one (1) year warranty. We can offer a three (3) or

five (5) year warranty if this helps secure an order.

Note: Other sound door manufacturers (except IAC) send the doors to the site as a “kit” that needs

to be installed by others. This take a great deal more time to install than our door and the end cost

is as high or higher than our door. Important: Who guarantees the field performance of site assemble

doors?

Features of Noise Barriers’ doors:

Frames:

• The frame is the same for all STC doors thicknesses except for the NIC 70 door.

• The frame for the NIC70 is different than the lower STC frames.

• We will prep for hardware supplied by others but prefer not to. We charge for this service and

we must have the hardware in hand prior to fabrication. If we prep the doors we will install the

hardware at no additional cost.

• We will not use Cylindrical Locksets. Due to the door weight it is easy for them to break off while

in use.

• Drop Down Extra Clamp Seal

• Standard closer is the LCN 4041 with one of three options (refer to quote).

QuietSwing TM

Split Frame Detail



Architectural Swing Doors Standards and Training

Door Terminology and Details

Single leaf - Sometimes designated 3o7o. This is a 3’ wide by 7’ high door. This designates a 3’ wide

“clear opening” x 7’ high “clear opening” door-way. Our actual door leaf size is larger due to our frame

detail.

Double Leaf or “pair” of doors - Sometimes designated 6o7o. This is two (2) 3’ wide x 7’ high leaves.

Uneven double leaf door - Example: 5o7o consisting of a 3o7o leaf and a 2o7o leaf.

Width is generally listed first in door size designations.

Height is generally listed second in door size designations.

The leaf or leaves are the door slab itself.

The frames secure the door leaf to the wall.

Split Frame - We generally use a split frame design

• The female side of the frame includes the hinges and the seals.

• The male side of the frame is a closure piece to finish off the opening. The male side is not

always used nor critical to the door assembly except as a finishing detail. Probably 99% of all

architectural door projects include the male frame.

Our double leaf door design

• Includes an active leaf and an inactive leaf.

• The inactive leaf is held to the frame through the seals and slide bolts at the top and bottom.

• In some instances, a panic exit devise is used on the active leaf with top and bottom rods.

• The frame for double leaf doors includes a splice plate connection at the head to facilitate

powder painting.

Astragal or Mullion

• The vertical connection between the two leaves of a double leaf door is called an astragal or

mullion.

• Generally, in the industry, the astragal is fixed. In our design it is on the inactive leaf.

• In some applications we provide a fixed or removable astragal or mullion. This makes both doors

active.

• Each door seals against the astragal.

• Used in applications where the client wants to be able to move objects thru an opening wider

than a door a removable astragal can be used. Example: a door in a corridor. For safety, both

doors need to open. The removable astragal can be used to move something like a piano thru

the opening. This unusual but is sometimes required.

Flush Doors - A door without a window.

Windows in door leaves are sometimes referred to as

• Vision panels

• Borrowed lites

• Lites

Sidelite - A window next to a door.

Transom Panel- A window over a door. Sometimes a transom panel is solid, not a window, and sometimes it

is hinged or removable.

Door Opening Terms

• Head: the wall over the door.

• Jambs: the wall on either side of the door.

• Sill: the bottom of the door at the floor.

• Threshold: the floor at the bottom of a doorway. We generally supply a flat aluminum threshold with

beveled edges to reduce the trip hazard. Our door is installed on top of this threshold. This gives our

bottom seal a flat surface to seal to. Sometimes a threshold is referred or as a saddle.

• Wall or jamb thickness: the distance from one side of an opening to the other side.

• Rough Opening: the opening from the jamb to jamb and sill to head.

• Clear Opening: the actual clear dimension, width and height, that an object can pass thru. We refer

to clear opening because our frame and seals require extra space, more than a conventional,

non-acoustically rated wood or hollow metal (HM) door.

Our standard door frame is a split frame design

• We provide a split frame design. Only one other sound door manufacturer offers this.

• This is a very important sales feature and benefit of our door design. Because the Noise Barriers

frame is a two-piece split frame, and because we wrap the jamb our frames, they can be installed

after the walls are built. Hollow metal doors and frames and other acoustical doors need to be at the

construction site much earlier because the walls are built around the frame. Remember this important

feature: When clients say they need the doors “right now” they are probably unaware that the

doors and frames can be installed much later in the construction process.

• There are two methods of installing the frame.

• We can wrap the jamb. We designate this an “A” installation. This is most commonly used.

• Or, we can butt the frame up to the jamb. We designate this a “B” installation.

The swing (handing) of doors

• Is determined by the placement of a lock or where a lock (key side) would be.

• You can determine the swing by putting your back against the jamb on the hinge side.

• If your right arm swings into the room it is a RH door.

• If your left arm swings into the room it is a LH door.

• If your right arm swings out of the room it is a LHR door.

• If your left arm swings out of the room it is a RHR door.

• Again, the normal location of the key is critical in determining the “handing” of a door.

• These are depicted on our submittal sheets.



ADA COMPLIANCE LETTER EXAMPLE

Re: Noise Barriers, QuietSwing Doors, ADA Compliance

To Whom It May Concern:

Sound control doors continue to be a topic for discussion when related to ADA compliance. Some if

this discussion revolves around the interpretation of the regulation, which can be subject to a local

municipality ruling. Sound control door limitations are not specific to Noise Barriers and should be

considered with all manufactures. Noise Barriersoffers the following interpretation of the regulation, but

will not guarantee that each municipality will accept or interpret it as follows.

Sound Door Explanation, Single Swing Doors:

It is important to understand that NB manufactures lab tested sound control doors. Due to limitations

of testing compliance, alterations to the existing designs are not allowed if guaranteed performance is

required. Sound control doors are heavy and incorporate a double magnetic seal in two locations around

the perimeter of the door, along with cam-lift hinges to lift the door away from the bottom compression

seal. These doors can be fitted with a full lite vision panel, this vision panel consists of a double glazing

consisting of a 1/2” and 3/8” glazing respectively as per the submittal drawings. Please note the typical

door drawings below.

Sound Door Explanation, Double Swing Doors:

NB manufactures a double swing door that features an affixed astragal on the inactive leaf or an optional center mullion.

It should be noted that the affixed astragal can create a double egress issue if the inactive leaf is used in conjunction with

a panic exit device. The inactive leaf would effectively have to push the active leaf for a distance in order to bypass this

astragal. Until the astragal is passed you will exceed the 5-6 lbs of push force. Optionally a removable center mullion can be

added to the door design but would affect the clear access path accordingly.

The manufactures standard detail is a surface mounted manual slide bolt affixed to the face of the door. This is the most

secure configuration. Due to the limitation of the adjustable compression seal at the sill location optional automatic and

manual flush bolts can only be installed at the head locations.

Sound Door Explanation, Oversized Swing Doors:

Oversized swing doors may not comply with the 5-6 lbs of active force to open, understandably these doors may also be

subject to higher limits reserved for specialty doors. Noise Barriers cannot make assumptions that anything over the tested

4’x8’ single active leaf would comply without assistance. In most cases electric power operators are offered as optional

items.

In many cases an oversized door will also be thicker that our standard offerings. Please contact the factory prior to

specifying large or oversized doors. These doors typically fall into a specialty door category and are accompanied by an

adjacent personnel door.

Sound Door Explanation, Hardware Limitations:

Noise Barriers is not responsible for the selection or operational hardware compliance. The Architect, Owner, or

Contractor must approve all hardware prior to door construction. In all cases hardware compliance is subject to the specific

needs of the facility and operation of the specific door in questions. The unlatching process is typically excluded from the

ADA compliance as it is the operation of unlatching the door and not in the swinging motion.

When in doubt NB recommends the addition of a heavy-duty door operator designed to handle heavy door operation. The

higher than typical break free force should be expected when making this selection.

Sound Door Explanation, Operation:

Upon inspection and verification of a plumb, square, and normally operational door the following should apply.

It is expected with any sound control door to be “heavy” in order to reach specific acoustic performance, any added

vision panels will increase that weight accordingly. It is also expected with a door of this type to be somewhat “difficult” or

“more difficult” than a standard hollow metal door to open as the seals need to be “broken” or “released” for the door to

operate regardless of supplier or manufacturer. It will unavoidably take more force to operate a door that is heavier than a

comparable hollow metal door. This break free force is typical included in the hardware unlatching exclusion as they are

mechanical seals, and retraction is prior to the swinging motion.

In the installed condition you will notice a typical initial push or pull required to break the sealing surfaces. Since the door

seal is sealing at the floor, a threshold or flat non-abrasive smooth surface should be installed.

As per the enclosed document a single active leaf door size of 4’x8’ or less should be compliant or within the 5-6 lbs. of

door opening or closing force. Please note that this is after the door is in the swinging motion, and after the break free

force. It should be understood that the break free force is excluded for this requirement as are the magnets and bottom seal.

Typically, all seals, locks, latches, etc. would fall into this category. Any added hardware or hardware out of adjustment may

affect the rating and remove the door from compliance.

Summary:

In general, most sound control doors can meet ADA compliance once the swinging motions has been achieved. In many

cases out of range issues can be traced backed to an installed condition, a building pressure imbalance, or a hardware

selection adding to the opening force. Please be aware of any unusually stringent location selections or municipalities that

require a more specific compliance beyond our interpretations, or inspectors. When in doubt it is up to the Architect,

Owner, or Contractor to ensure the proper hardware and intended use of sound control doors in any specific egress path.

VERTICAL LIFT DOOR

LAYOUT

Horizontal and Vertical Lift Sliding Doors Standards and Training

Noise Barriers provides the following Sliding Doors:

• Horizontal: Motorized or Manually Operated

• Slide to the right

• Slide to the left

• Bi-Parting

• Bi-Folding

• Vertical Lift; Motorized only

• Single Slab

• Telescoping

Standard Features (Refer to quote for features included on every project)

Terminology:

A horizontal sliding door consists of:

• The door slab(s).

• Guide Rail and Block system (as opposed to the old method of track and trollies).

• Belt Drive Mechanism consisting of the motor and miscellaneous parts and the drive belt. (These parts

ship fully assembled onto a support angle.)

• “Beauty” shroud over the support angle, guide rail and drive mechanism.

• Leading edge pocket.

• Motor and Control Panel. Motor HP size varies with door weight.

• Open-Stop-Close operation on both sides of the door.

• Safety Laser motion detector both sides of door in lieu of safety reversing edge or photo

electric eye.

• If the door is stopped by the laser detection system the door “open” or “close” button must be pushed

to continue door operation.

• Field adjustable for coverage areas and fixed obstructions.

• Storage pocket (optional based on sound reduction requirement).

• Pneumatic Seals (optional)

• Fire rating (optional)

• Silent operation….less the 40dBA electrical or manual operation.

Test Data:

We have a lab test of STC 51.

• We probably will not get any additional lab tests because the test sample must be small to meet the

lab test fixturing, the labs don’t want us to attach anything to their wall (like support angle for the track),

cost for what is a one-off project, etc. It is just not practical to lab test these doors.

• We can advise consultants and architects of anticipated field results based on slab tests we have conducted

either in our shop or at independent labs. These just are not sound tests of moving doors.

• To date, this has not been an issue.

• We have guaranteed field NIC performance into the mid-50’s.



Horizontal and Vertical Lift Sliding Doors Standards and Training Cont...

General Design features:

We have supplied 4”, 5”, 6” and 8” thick doors. Thickness is a function of desired acoustic performance and

door slab size.

4” = STC 45-54

5” = STC 55-60

6” and thicker = STC 61-65

Doors are prime painted as a standard. The door slabs can be powder painted depending upon size.

Description: head-jamb-sill/threshold; See training document “Door Terminology.

Clear Opening Size (width and height) of Sliding Doors is not limited. We have supplied a 50’ wide by

24’ high (two 50’ wide a 12’ high telescoping slabs) and a 23’ wide x 34’ high Bi-Parting Sliding door.

Adjustable, mortised, Teflon covered bottom compression seal. These doors are designed such that

the bottom seal can be replaced without taking the entire door down.

Flush or with windows.

Sliding door should have thresholds which we provide.

We offer aluminum, nylon or steel thresholds

Electrical

• Motor is to be sized based on the following door sizes:

• Door weight up to 550 lbs. = ½ HP, Corresponds to ~32 sq./ft. door

• Door weight up to 1,200 lbs. = ¾HP, Corresponds to ~68 sq./ft. door

• Door weight up to 2,000 lbs. = 1 HP, Corresponds to ~115 sq./ft. door

• Door weight up to 2,800 lbs. = 1.5 HP, Corresponds to ~155 sq./ft. door

• Door weight up to 3,600 lbs. = 2 HP, Corresponds to ~200 sq./ft. door

• Door weight up to 5,200 lbs. = 3 HP, Corresponds to ~300 sq./ft. door

• Door weight up to 8,800 lbs. = 5 HP, Corresponds to ~480 sq./ft. door

All motorized doors shall be furnished with two (2) (one Interior and one exterior) three button operation

interfaces. (Please note if any required lockout or keyed interruption is required.)

DOOR CONTROL SYSTEM:

System shall be in a NEMA 12 enclosure with a fusible disconnects, 220-240VAC 1 Phase or 208/230VAC 3

Phase operation. Electrical service is dependent upon site conditions and motor requirements.

Door operation shall be Open-Close-Stop. Operation can be:

Hold the button the entire time the door opens or closes.

Push the desire button to Open or Close, the door completes the operation automatically.

Door safety operation

Objects or personnel that interrupt the path of the door will cause the door to stop, door operation can

only be restarted after the obstruction is removed and the Open or Close button is pushed.

An Emergency-Stop or remote deactivation of the system is available as an added option.

Battery back-up system may be required (refer to drawings).

QuietLine Barrier Walls



QuietLine

TM

BARRIER WALLS

For any place noise is a problem,

QuietLine is the solution

V-STACK

Barrier Walls are typically used to separate a problem

noise source and a target population. This barrier

creates a “sound shadow” zone of quiet that can

be tailored to cover almost any size area either

indoors or out.

Absorptive noise control barriers provide

maximum noise reduction with lightweight

modular panels and/or louvers. The noise

barrier system is easy to install and

easy to relocate. Panels and louvers

are constructed of galvanized steel or

aluminum and finish painted in a weather

resistant polyester powder coating.

The finish is also graffiti resistant and

cleanable.

An existing wall can be lined with

QuietLine sound-absorbing cladding

panels as an effective, cost-efficient

method of reducing reflected sound.

The ease of installing Noise Barriers Modular Barrier:

Fast and Easy Installation:

Noise Barriers manufactures and packages our walls systems with the installation

task in mind. We make it very simple to hook our panels while still in the crate,

making it less manpower intensive and safer for the installing crew as compared to

other systems.

We have experience providing our product for roof tops, mezzanines and ground

mount situations of all types and sizes. The Noise Barriers Modular Barrier panel

system makes the installation process a breeze.

The Benefits:

The benifits of installing a Noise Barrier Wall versus

other sound control companies walls are that our walls

are easy to install and cut the installation construciton

time in half. Saving time is also saving money when it

comes to labor.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Easy as 1-2-3!

Step 1: Secure lifting hooks to panel while it’s in the crate, then lift straight up and out.

Step 2: Align panel in panel tracks at the tops of the columns and lower panel down.

Step 3: Stack panels until “bay” is full and move on. No sealant or fasteners required.

QUIETLINE BARRIER WALL DESIGN PARAMETERS

GENERAL DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS

• In laying out panels it is preferable to use as few panels as possible and as many identical panels as

possible.

• Height Example: a 20’ HIGH wall can be comprised of four (4) five foot high or five (5)

• 4 foot high panels. Better to use the four (4) 5‘ high panels. This is fewer panels.

• Length Example: a 48’ Long wall can be comprised of four (4) 12’ long bays or three (3)

• 16 foot long bays. This is fewer panels, fewer columns and lower installation cost.

• The design consideration needs to take into account installation labor, access to the installation site and

other necessary design requirements such as door, window and cutout locations.

• Other vendors do not make 5’ high nor 16’ long panels. IAC makes a 16’ long panel but only available

24” high. This is a major advantage for us.

• Frequently Quiet Perf sound absorption panels are necessary in conjunction with two-wall or threewall

barriers to reduce reflected sound off of host building walls.

PANEL OPTIONS:

• V-STACK PANELS

• 4” or 5 “ thick.

• Up to 16’ long. We generally deduct 2” from Center-Line to Center-Line of columns when sizing length.

Example: If columns are 192” CL to CL the panel will be 190” long.

• Available in: 14.5” 22.5” 34.5” 46.5” and 58.5” heights for pricing purposes.

• We can make panels and dimension in between the length and width standard sizes.

• Prices are based on length x height dimension. Sizes in between use the next larger panel price.

• Materials: A60 galvanneal, G90 galvanized, Stainless Steel, Aluminum

• Finish: Powder painted or unpainted (except A60...it must be painted).

• Non-Standard colors may take longer to obtain and make cost extra. Check availability with NB.

SL (ship lap) and SLR (Ship Lap Reveal and Concealor)

• 4” thick.

• Up to 16’ long. We generally deduct 2” from Center-Line to Center-Line of columns when sizing length.

Available in: 24” height for pricing purposes.

• We can make panels and dimension in between the length and width standard sizes.

• Prices are based on length x height dimension. Sizes in between use the next larger panel price.

Materials: A60 galvanneal, G90 galvanized, Stainless Steel, Aluminum. Concealor is only available in

Aluminum with high textured paint finish.

Finish: Powder painted or unpainted (except A60...it must be painted).

• Non-Standard colors may take longer to obtain and make cost extra. Check availability with NB.

STRUCTURAL STEEL: There are many methods of using structural steel to support barrier walls.

Following are generalizations and the most common. Beam size is a function of wall height, span form

column to column, wind-load criteria and panel thickness. Structural Steel is made of carbon steel which

rusts very quickly. We treat beams by using a hot-dipped galvanized coating and then powder painting it.

Beam designations:

• “W” means wide flange beam.

• The 1st number is the nominal depth of the beam in inches.

• The 2nd number is the weight per foot of length.

• Example: a W8 x 31 beam is 8” deep and 31-lbs.per foot of length.

• The flange width varies in width and thickness. You need to consult a structural steel reference book to

obtain dimensions.

• The web is the part of the beam that goes from flange to flange. You need to consult a structural steel

reference book to obtain.

Wide Flange Beam Columns on Base Plates:

• Base plates: Are generally ¾” to 1” thick. The size, thickness and number of anchor holes varies with

wind-load and column size. Either NB or the PE determines the size. We typically include 16 gauge steel

templates of the base plate for the installation contractor so they can set anchors in concrete on ground

mounted barriers.

Kickers: Sometimes we include a “kicker” for extra bracing. This is usually a steel angle that runs diagonally

from the column to another bearing point on the ground por roof. We can also include cross bracing or a

steel top cap.

Columns:

• W5x16 columns fit 4” thick panels.

• W6x25 columns fit 5” thick panels.

• On higher walls and higher wind-load requirements we provide structural steel angles (usually 3” x 3” x

1/4”) either welded or bolted to the web of the column. This creates a slot between the inside face of the

flange and the angle. The panel then slides down the column within this slot.

Tube Steel:

• In some installations the building design includes a tube structural steel framework. We have several

methods of using this steel with our barriers:

• Horizontal Panel installation: We can weld a smaller beam to the tube frame work or we can provide a

mounting system to act as a wide flange beam.

• Vertical Panel Installation: We provide a shelf angle that the panels rest on with a top cap or clip system

to secure them at the top of the wall.

QUIETMOD PANEL SYSTEM: used in VERTICAL or HORIZONTAL BARRIERS

• Are designated with the skin construction and STC rating.

• H/P is hard skin and perforated skin. Example: H/P-42 is an STC 42 panel.

• H/H is hard skin and hard skin.

• 4” thick is standard. We can make the panels thicker. Please contact NB for guidance.

• Up to 16’ long.

Available in: 16”, 24” 36”, 48” and 60” widths or heights (for pricing purposes).

• We can make panels and dimension in between the length and width standard sizes.

• Prices are based on length x height dimension. Sizes in between use the next larger panel price.

Materials: A60 galvanneal, G90 galvanized, Stainless Steel, Aluminum.

Finish: Powder painted or unpainted (except A60...it must be painted).

Non-Standard colors may take longer to obtain and make cost extra. Check availability with NB.

Joiners and Connectors Used with QuietMod Panels

• Floor Channel are designated FC-length in inches.

• FC-120 is a floor channel 120” long.

• Top Cap (same profile as Floor Channel) are designated TC-length in inches.

• TC-120 is a top cap 120” long.

• H-joiners are designated HJ-length in inches.

• HJ-120 is an H-Joiner 120” long.

• Removable H-joiners are designated RHJ-length in inches.

• RHJ consists of two parts…the joiner missing one leg and a “T”

• RHJ-118 is an RH-Joiner 118” long.

• “T” Connectors are designated T-length in inches.

• T-118 is a T-Connector 118” long.

These are typically used with Removable H-Joiners

They are sometimes used by themselves to seal between adjoining panels.

Angle Connectors are designated AC-length in inches.

AC-120 is an Angle Connector 120” long.

ACs are sometimes used in place of floor Channel.

QuietMod TM Benefits Compared to Standard Construction

The QuietMod TM wall is demountable and

therefore classified as equipment, not leasehold

improvement. In most circumstances,

this material is subject to accelerated

depreciated as equipment. Consult your tax

specialist.

The QuietMod TM wall weighs 11.9 lbs per

square foot versus 32 lbs per square foot for

8” concrete block. No foundation is required,

construction on top of a concrete slab/floor is

acceptable.

Better noise reduction… Sound Transmission

Class of the QuietMod TM wall is similar to

concrete block. The QuietMod TM wall is

perforated toward the fire (warehouse) side so

it provides much needed sound absorption on

the warehouse side.

The QuietMod TM wall arrives on the site

pre-painted, if required.

The QuietMod TM wall can be delivered in

three weeks after approved drawings and can

be installed by a competent crew of three in

less than one week.

No construction mess… The QuietMod TM wall

is a clean installation with very little mess or

clean-up required.

The QuietMod TM wall is easily disassembled,

moved/stored and reinstalled in a new

location.

The QuietMod TM wall is easy to re-configure

for different locations or size with very little

material loss.

The QuietMod TM wall can accommodate

personnel and equipment doors.

We include approval/installation CAD

drawings stamped by a structural engineer.

Applications and Construction Data

Solid surface is 16 gauge galvanized steel. Perforated surface is 22 gauge

galvanized steel.

Design weight: 11.9lb/ft 2 , R Value: 18.

Fire Rating - QuietMod TM H/P-43 Fire 2 Panels are fire rated by Intertek Testing

NOISE BARRIERS

QuietMod Design Parameters

QUIETMOD PANEL SYSTEM:

Are designated with the skin construction and STC rating.

• H/P is hard skin and perforated skin. Example: H/P-42 is an STC 42 panel.

• H/H is hard skin and hard skin.

• H/S/P is hard skin-septum-perforated skin.

• H/H/H is hard skin-septum-hard skin.

• 4” thick is standard. We can make the panels thicker. Please contact NB for guidance.

• Up to 16’ long.

• Available in: 16”, 24” 36”, 48” and 60” height for pricing purposes.

• We can make panels and dimension in between the length and width standard sizes.

• Prices are based on length x height dimension. Sizes in between use the next larger panel price.

• Materials: A60 galvanneal, G90 galvanized, Stainless Steel, Aluminum

• Finish: Powder painted or unpainted (except A60...it must be painted).

• Non-Standard colors may take longer to obtain and make cost extra. Check availability with NB.

General Design Considerations

• In laying out panels it is preferable to use as few panels as possible and as many identical panels as

possible.

• Example: a 20’ wall can be comprised of four (4) five’ foot wide or five (5) 4’ panels. Better to use the four

(4) 5’ wide panels.

• The design consideration needs to take into account installation labor, access to the installation site and

other necessary design considerations such as door, window and cutout location.

• In calculating the panel sizes, you need to deduct 3/16” in overall panel width to accommodate the

H-Joiner. Example…if the C/L to C/L of J-Joiners is 48”, the panel width will be 47-13/16

• Joiners and Connectors

• Floor Channel is designated FC-length in inches.

• An FC-120 is a floor channel 120” long.

• Roof Channel is designated RC-length in inches.

• RC-120 is a roof channel 120” long.

• Roof Apron is designated RA-length in inches.

• RA-120 is a roof apron 120” long.

• Floor Channel corners are designated FCC-length in inches.

• These are right angle corners and are typically 12” x 12”.

• FC-12x12 is a 12” x 12” floor channel corner.

• They can be other sizes, including uneven sides such as 12” x 18”.

• Roof Channel corners are designated RCC-length in inches.

• These are right angle corners and are typically 12” x 12”.

• RC-12x12 is a 12” x 12” roof channel corner.

• They can be other sizes, including uneven sides such as 12” x 18”.

• Top Cap (same profile as Floor Channel) are designated TC-length in inches.

• TC-120 is a top cap 120” long.

• Top Cap Corners are designated TCC-length in inches.

• These are right angle corners and are typically 12” x 12”.

• TC-12x12 is a 12” x 12” top cap corner.

• They can be other sizes, including uneven sides such as 12” x 18”.

• H-joiners are designated HJ-length in inches.

• HJ-118 is an H-Joiner 118” long.

• They are typically 2” short than wall panels they connect.

• On ceiling-panels the HJ is typically the same length as the roof panels the connect.

• Removable H-joiners are designated RHJ-length in inches.

• RHJ consists of two parts…the joiner missing one leg and a “T”

• RHJ-118 is an RH-Joiner 118” long.

• They are typically 2” short than wall panels they connect so they align with the top of the leg of an FC

and the bottom of the leg of an RC.

• On ceiling-panels the HJ is typically the same length as the roof panels the connect.

• Corner Joiner is designated CJ-length in inches.

• CJ-118 is a C-Joiner 118” long.

• They are typically 2” shorter than the panels they connect so they align with the top of the leg of an FC

and the bottom of the leg of an RC.

• They are typically 2” short than wall panels the connect.

• On ceiling-panels the T is typically the same length as the roof panels the connect.

• “T” Connectors are designated T-length in inches.

• T-118 is a T-Connector 118” long.

• These are typically used with Removable H-Joiners

• They are sometimes used by themselves to seal between adjoining panels.

• They are typically 2” shorter than the panels they connect so they align with the top of the leg of an FC

and the bottom of the leg of an RC.

• On ceiling-panels the T is typically the same length as the roof panels the connect.

• Angle Connectors are designated AC-length in inches.

• AC-120 is an Angle Connector 120” long.

• ACs are sometimes used in place of floor Channel.

• AC’s are sometimes used as a Wall Start where a panel wall butts into another wall.

• AC’s are sometimes used as flanges around a silencer so it is supported in an opening.

STRUCTURAL STEEL

THERE ARE SEVERAL TYPICAL METHODS OF USING STRUCTRURAL STEEL TO SUPPORT THE ROOF PANELS.

• Wide flange beam resting on top cap/roof channel directly over H-Joiners.

• This is used when all the steel is supporting is roof panels.

• Typically, on a span up to 16’ we use a W5x16 beam.

• Each H-Joiner can support 2,000 lbs.

• The weight gets spread over end wall panels and wide flange beam to H-Joiner.

• Wide flange beam resting on top cap/roof channel directly over 4” x 4” x 3/16” tube column.

• This is used when the steel is supporting roof panels and some additional weight.

• Typically, on a span up to 16’ we use a W5x16 beam.

• Wide flange beam secured with beam clips on 4” x 4” x 3/16” tube column.

• Generally, these are larger beams such as W12x30 or W8x28.

• This is used when the steel is supporting additional equipment or spans longer than 16’.
