Silencer Fabric Sound Attenuator

DuctSox continues to be the leader and innovator in the fabric ductwork/diffuser industry. The Silencer is a Fabric Sound Attenuator that was developed to address one factor for fabric duct—noise from the air handling unit. Textile air dispersion systems can be designed to be quiet, but noise entering the system from air handling units, volume control dampers, or fan-powered boxes can create an uncomfortably noisy environment.

DuctSox’s latest innovation is the first of its kind silencer made out of fabric! The concept utilizes several other innovations, such as our patented SkeleCore Technology for structure. The Silencer can be used in place of a metal silencer or acoustically-lined ducting to absorb or prevent incoming noise from reaching the occupied space. 

Many applications leave little, or no, mechanical space to place sound attenuators. The Silencer is installed in the occupied space, offering an aesthetically pleasing appearance that can be customized to match your DuctSox System’s fabric type and color.

Depending on noise absorption required, the Silencer is available with or without an internal bullet and available in diameters 12” to 30”.
