Acoustical Solutions for Airports


Key Elements

Investing in high-quality acoustical insulation products from International Cellulose Corporation empowers architects and builders to enhance airport functionality. This strategic investment improves coordination, safety measures, and the capacity to manage increased flight and passenger volumes without compromising operational efficiency.

Acoustic insulation serves as a decisive element in ensuring both traveler safety and the seamless operation of airport spaces. The aviation industry is a bustling environment where the roar of jet engines, the constant movement of aircraft and ground vehicles, and the general hum of both passenger and employee activity create a high noise level. This noise is not only fatiguing and inconvenient; it can have significant implications for safety and well-being.

Clear communication between ground staff, air traffic controllers, pilots, and other personnel is paramount for safe airport operations. Excessive noise can impede staff communication, disrupt ground crew coordination, and compromise safety protocols, leading to misunderstandings, errors, and potentially dangerous situations. To address these issues, prioritizing high-quality, effective acoustic insulation is crucial for architects and builders.

Traveler comfort remains another priority for airports, as a serene environment significantly contributes to customer satisfaction. Excessive noise disrupts travelers' ability to communicate, relax, or focus on important announcements and tasks, which can lead to increased stress levels and fatigue. Implementing high-quality acoustic insulation diminishes this noise pollution, fostering a more enjoyable atmosphere for passengers. This improved experience positively impacts the airport's functionality by fostering an environment conducive to clear communication, safety, and well-being for everyone involved in airport operations.

Our solutions

K-13 Sound Absorption Spray


The K-13 sound absorption spray system begins with specially prepared cellulose fibers combined with natural fire retardants in a strict, quality-controlled manufacturing process to produce a Class 1, Class A-rated material. K-13 is spray-applied by an international network of professional contractors licensed by ICC to ensure consistent and predictable results. During application, the K-13 fibers combine with a patented water-based adhesive, resulting in a durable, exposed finish.

Typical Projects


Our patented water-based adhesive adheres to virtually any properly prepared substrate and ceiling configuration including metal deck, barrel-vaults, concrete "T" corrugated decks, gypsum, wood, concrete, and other complex surfaces. Surfaces to receive K-13 are to be inspected prior to installation to determine if pre-treatment is required.
