IAC Limited of Winchester is introducing what it believes to be the first British-made ‘green’ silencer range for air handling applications. With acoustic infill material made from specially-developed post-industrial organic fibre, IAC is continuing to set the industry standard by providing eco-friendly alternatives to suit today’s construction agenda.
Leading the world in noise control solutions since 1949, IAC’s eco-friendly Quiet-Duct attenuators are good news for consulting engineers, acoustical consultants and specifiers who are keen to minimise the environmental impact of new and existing buildings. Developed at IAC’s R&D facility in New York, USA, the ‘green’ silencers deliver a range of environmentally friendly benefits. The infill material comprises recycled post-industrial organic fibre treated to resist combustion and vermin, it is non-toxic, corrosion resistant and the infill material manufacturing process uses far less energy than the fibreglass or mineral wool alternatives. Importantly, it also provides equivalent acoustic performance to conventional infill materials. IAC’s Quiet-Duct silencer range is effective across a whole gamut of architectural, industrial and building services applications.
Suitable for a vast array of acoustic requirements, these fully lab-tested silencers provide specifiers with solutions to meet almost every conceivable noise reduction criteria. The silencers deliver high performance both in forward flow and reverse flow contexts. IAC Quiet Duct designs offer silencers with varied splitter configurations that minimise pressure drop while maximising acoustic performance.

Gary Dawson is Business Manager, Building Services at IAC: "Providing lab tested and certified aero-acoustic data with all our products is what has always set us apart and while our products are much imitated they are never matched. Now that we can offer that same technical excellence in a ‘green’ formulation across all our range, we think we’ve got the winning combination."
