Where and how to use noise control materials in tractor cabs.
Absorption materials soak up noise inside
tractor cabs, and similar applications. They reduce reverbaeration (“tin
|Damping Compounds reduce noise
by absorbing vibration|
eg. foams, rubber, soft wood, paint on/trowel on compounds.
Damping compounds are typically used inside the engine hood, instrument cover and instrument side panels
Barrier Materials reduce the penetration of
external and engine noises into the cab.
Isolation Materials Prevent vibration energy
from passing from one point to another.
|NOTE: Take care to cover holes around seat,
brakes, clutch and other openings to prevent noise leakage. Use a gunned
sealant and rubber grommets to seal around coax and electrical cables
