Effective air circulation is accomplished by acoustically engineered, detachable ventilation systems. Each system circulates air at a rate of 100 CFM (cubic feet per minute). The number of systems required depends on the size of the sound isolation booth. Each system mounts to an exterior wall surface and includes one(1) intake duct, one(1) exhaust duct and one(1) Remote Fan Unit (RFU). Each duct contains a series of baffles and acoustical foam curves. This provides a treacherous path for sound to pass, while at the same time, allowing smooth airflow. To minimize vibrations, the RFU is non-rigidly attached to the exhaust duct by a flexible ducting hose. Fresh air is pulled into the room at floor level as a result of warmed air being pulled from the room at ceiling level. A wireless remote switch is provided with each WhisperRoom™ Ventilation System(s) to control the remote fan unit (RFU). For certain applications, we offer units which are pre-configured for, but which do not include ventilation (SNV and ENV models).
A door window is provided with each WhisperRoom™ model. Multiple layers of 1/4" thick laminated safety glass are used. Laminated safety glass is used because of its superior noise reduction capability and safety features. If broken, it will not shatter. Air buffers and the weight/sq ft of the window exceeds that of a solid wall component to prevent noise transfer.
STANDARD Door Window Design:
|Size:||12" x 30" (30.48cm x 76.2cm)|
ENHANCED Door Window Design:
|Size:||12" x 30" (30.48cm x 76.2cm)s|
Access for communication cables (microphone, headphone, speaker, etc...), electrical cables and computer cables is accomplished by way of slotted rubber plugs. Simply remove the plug, insert the cable(s) into the slots and re-insert the plug into the wall. Two or more cable passage plugs are provided with each WhisperRoom™ and each will accommodate multiple cables.
The number of plugs depends on the size of the unit. Also, an additional cable passage plug is located at the base of each optional window component.
Acoustic Studio Foam
Each model comes with enough Auralex® acoustical foam to cover about 1/3 of the interior. Each sheet is 2' x 4' and 2" thick and attaches to the interior with Velcro®. This allows the user to customize the interior acoustics to suit their needs. The foam can easily be added to, or removed from, the WhisperRoom™ for applications where a more "dead" or "live" environment is desired. The entire interior surface of each WhisperRoom™ ceiling component and the base of the door are covered with pre-attached acoustical foam wrapped with cloth. Standard colors available are Gray and Burgundy.
|Frequency ( Hertz ):||125||250||500||1000||2000||4000|
Lights shipped with the WhisperRoom™ are intended to provide clients with basic startup lighting. It is understood that most clients may ultimately purchase and install lighting fixtures more suitable to their individual needs and desires. One or two lights are provided, depending on the enclosure size.
A Remote Switch is supplied with each WhisperRoom. The switch can be used with the light or the ventilation system - most people use it to turn the ventilation system(s) on and off.
