1. Will Quiet Fence™ work for me? How Many Will I Need?
Just as when your hands are placed over your ears to block noise, Quiet Fence™ MUST be properly placed to get the best results. While it is easy to understand that placing Quiet Fence™ in front of your A/C unit will block a lot of the noise, the secondary reflections, such as concrete block walls (usually seen in Arizona) will echo the noise, and should also be considered very important. We recommend trying different positioning placements and just finding what works best for your noise problem. We are more than happy to review any pictures you can send of your particular problem to help you achieve the best results.
QUIET FENCE™ works well with most applications, but the large permanent generators are so incredibly loud, the amount of sound QUIET FENCE™ dampens will not be enough to make these style units very quiet. Please feel free to contact us for suggestions on how best to reduce the sound levels of these units. We always welcome pictures of your application.
2. How do I make sure my Quiet Fence™ is working properly?
The key to Quiet Fence™ performance is installation. Please be sure to follow the directions closely. Copies of instruction sheets are located in the Gallery section here on the site. You also may call us with questions.
3. What are the dimensions of the Quiet Fence™ and placement?
Inches = 43″ h X 48″ w X 2-3/4″ d
Centimeters = 109 h X 122 X 6.985 d
Recommend placement- 12” away from A/C for proper air flow
4. How much does the Quiet Fence™ weigh? Color Available? What is it made of?
Eighteen (18) pounds
Light Neutral. We currently have one color and it matched most housing colors. It is considered a light beige. Quiet Fence is paintable using paint for plastic such as Valspar or Krylon. Wipe the product first, and then simply paint.
Quiet Fence™ is made of HDPE (High-density polyethylene) or, in the everyday language…heavy-duty plastic, much like your curbside garbage cans. Durable and will withstand sun and cold.
5. If I want to secure Quiet Fence™ to uneven surface, how do I attach Quiet Fence™ with fence stakes?
Lightweight fence stakes are available on our website and include screws or can be purchased at most do-it-yourself home improvement stores for a few dollars each. Using two stakes for each QUIET FENCE™ unit, one per panel (just like a book left & right). Place the unit on the ground at place where you want to have the QUIET FENCE™ end up at. Press the stakes into the ground along an edge of the Hushhh BloX® if the fence stake has a blade welded on it that is for more stability and is toward the bottom. Remove the QUIET FENCE™ and hammer the stake in approximately at around 12” into the ground. Put the QUIET FENCE™ unit back against the fence stakes and secure with #8, 1½” long decking screws. Use a 3’ Fence stake to mount the QUIET FENCE™ into the ground. To elevate QUIET FENCE™ above the ground, use the above procedure, but with longer fence stakes.
6. I have a large permanent style generator and it makes a lot of noise when it runs. Do you recommend Quiet Fence™ for this?
No. QUIET FENCE™ works well with most applications, these larger generators are so incredibly loud, the amount of sound QUIET FENCE™ dampens will not be enough to make these style units very quiet. Please feel free to contact us for suggestions on how best to reduce the sound levels of these units.
