Sound Absorbing Pads
Sound transmission from elevated rooftop paving to residential or office areas below can sometimes be a problem and soundproofing with conventional pedestal supports can be challenging.
A hard polypropylene composition does little to absorb noise from pedestrian traffic when pedestals have no noise-absorbing material either under the base or on the heads.
For this reason, our Eterno Prime, SE or NM pedestals feature a special bicomponent head with a soft rubber surface. These heads can dampen sound by up to 25 dB.
For further noise reduction, we offer 1/8th inch thick shock-resistant rubber pads which can be placed under the base of our polypropylene pedestals to lower sound transmission by 18 dB.
