Soundproofing blankets made using recycled textiles

The need to reduce outside noise is a challenge for anyone seeking peace and quiet, from professional to home applications. Be it a parent's need to secure quiet for their sleeping child, or an audio technician's desire for the best recording location possible, either can be a daunting task.

"Audio and motion picture professionals have sought effective avenues to control sound from the earliest days of these professions, " according to Dr. Johnson Wu, a principal at LookChina (www.LookChina.com), a North Carolina based provider of renewable textile manufacturing.

The problem? "Producing new textiles to integrate into the creation of sound proofing materials that are effective and ones that do not negatively impact the environment ... ", summarizes Dr. Wu.

So, in a classic win, win scenario, LookChina is reclaiming natural fibers and textiles and integrating them into the creation of sound proofing sound blankets. Called EZ Hang Acoustic Soundproof Blankets, these sound proofing tools are easily hung by convenient loops sewn into the durable fabric that encases the inner materials. These inner materials are comprised of sanitized and recycled all natural textiles processed into the manufacturing of these soundproofing blankets.

"It's not just professionals who appreciate the significant reduction of interfering sound, but we've also found that every day people use our sound blankets to block out interior or exterior noise at home, " Dr. Wu explains. The concept seems simple enough; sound is less apt to bounce off of soft surfaces as compared to hard. Additionally, these soft surfaced sound blankets stop the flow of sound, similar to temperature insulation, so you can imagine hanging one in front of a window to keep outside noise from getting in.

The sound proofing blankets are 72 by 80 inches in size and weigh 7 pounds. They are black in color, and are machine washable. The product is just beginning to enter North American markets and LookChina, founded in 1998, seeks to expand their distribution of this product both online at www.LookChina.com and through a developing distributorship network.
