Jaguar of Peabody

Jaguar of Peabody becomes another new car dealership to utilize K-13 for the comfort of their mechanics and customers to control reverberation in this noisy environment. Normally an echo chamber of air tools and running autos, this garage area
now has a calm quiet feeling. The K-13, applied at a 1” thickness, is providing a Noise Reduction Coefficient of .90 on this ribbed metal deck.

When FM Global wanted to insulate their old burn test facility building most insulation manufacturers ran the other way, not K-13. A mock-up was applied to the soot ridden exterior walls and allowed to cure for 3 weeks. The material was then tested for bond strength and passed with flying colors. Four weeks, and 50,000 square feet later, FM Global now has a “Class 1” thermal material insulating all exterior walls. The insulating of this once cold metal building shell will now allow reclaiming for future business uses.

It may not be as high profile as our application at Carnegie Hall, but it's just as important. Ure-K Light Grey applied at 1.25" provides a true 15 minute thermal barrier as required by law. Approved by FM and U.L., Ure-K is one of the few spray-on materials actually tested and approved over thick foam applications. Ure-K has been utilized for over 40 years providing true 15 minute ignition delays for various urethanes, soy based and foam rigid boards.

Body of Proof

"Body of Proof" Studio

When the new hit series Body of Proof came to town, they needed to renovate the studio space quickly and effectively. They didn't choose foam due to the smoke development, they didn't choose sprayed fiberglass due to the lack of bond strength and durability, they chose K-13. They are not alone. The Brotherhood, Providence, and The Notch are also among the many new studios in the New England area that have utilized the multiple characteristics of K-13. Transforming this rusted metal building and providing R-Values and superior Noise Reduction was completed in less than 10 days.

Never mind the showroom, go to the service area of this new Acura dealership and ask the staff what they think about the newly installed K-13 acoustical treatment. With reverberation times over 4 seconds, the noise levels in the garage area made the working conditions unbearable. During the 5 day application, as each section was completed, the staff was amazed by the results. After final completion, a conversation can now be had from one end of the garage to the other.

With the ever increasing use of radiant floor heating in commercial buildings, it did not take long for engineers and architects to find out that K-13 offers a safe and cost effective way to keep the heat rising. This latest installation includes this 150,000 board foot application around the perimeter of the new Biologics Support Center for Genzyme. This is certainly not the first application for Genzyme, K-13 has been utilized in their Alston and Northboro facilities as well.

Lights, Camera, Action! K-13 Light Grey will provide the acoustical control in this new TV studio in East Providence Rhode Island. The new site of the Showtime hit series, "The Brotherhood", chose 1.5", Noise Reduction Coefficient of 1.05, applied to all ceilings and selected walls to reduce reverberation. The project was completed in seven days so construction of sets and filming could begin on time.

RISE Engineering of Cranston Rhode Island taps K-13 for this recent mill renovation in Lawrence Massachusetts. Utilizing the local utility company's refund program, this application of 2.76", R-Value of 13, qualified for the payback program. At a fraction of the cost of re roofing a structure of this age, K-13 Beige is providing thermal protection along with a textured finish ceiling for the future open air office space.

Vinyl backed fiberglass batts certainly are the most economical solution to insulating a metal building, but it clearly is not the best long term solution. This 40,000 square foot renovation included the removal of the original insulation and replacement with K-13 Spray-On Thermal Insulation. Applied at a 2" monolithic coating, the K-13 is providing an R-Value of 9.4 along with a Noise Reduction Coefficient of 1.05. The removal of wet ripped and sagging fiberglass insulation is not a novel one, A.T.I. performs the cut and replace application several times per year.

This state of the art dog kennel in Grafton Massachusetts is one of several recently completed with K-13 to lower reverberation times. With the recent data suggesting that the acoustical performance of the kennels contribute to nervousness and sickness among pets more attention is being put into the performance of the space. The application of the K-13 reduced noise levels to an acceptable level providing comfort to customers and overnight guests.

Take out the earplugs and listen to what Ty-Wood Corporation of Holliston Massachusetts did to reduce reverberation time in their press room. 1.5" of White K-13 was applied to the ribbed metal deck and perimeter walls to achieve a Noise Reduction Coefficient of 1.05. This application was retrofitted with all the computerized machinery in place and performed on a 3rd shift schedule without any loss of production in the plant.
