What is it?
Quiet Ride Solutions uses a fibrous padding called, "Jute". It's a fiber-tech material that reacts rather uniquely when bonded to the aluminum sheeting; it forms the damper/absorber/reflective barrier they call HeatShield. It has a thermal "R" factor of 18.3 (a thermal factor equal to about 6 inches of fiberglass house insulation). In real-world before and after testing with AcoustiShield, it reduced interior noise levels up to 18 decibels. To put that into perspective, a 10 dB reduction equates to a 50 percent drop in passenger cabin noise. Equally significant is the 20- to 25-degree reduction in radiant heat that is transmitted through the body panels, firewall, floor, and roof.
