PortaFab modular wall systems are ideally suited for creating acoustical enclosures to provide control over excessive noise levels in industrial and manufacturing applications. Using pre-engineered components, our modular buildings are a cost-effective alternative to stick construction and have been used to:

Create Sound Barriers

Minimize Distractions from Noise and Activity

Isolate or Enclose High-Noise Equipment or Processes

Acoustical Enclosures

PortaFab acoustical enclosures can be built around existing equipment, outfitted with laminate glass and STC dependent panels for greater isolation, and can feature thicker and taller walls to accommodate large pieces of equipment. Sound Attenuation Batt Insulation can also be added in the ceiling for greater sound absorption.
