Nu Wave 4 Zero

Nu Wave 4 Zero

The Nu Wave range is based on high density, limp mass polymers to take the energy out of sound waves right across the hearing frequency spectrum.

Nu Wave barriers are flexible, inexpensive and will tame home theatre systems, aircraft noise, impact noise through walls and floors and engine noise.

Roll Sizes and Acoustic Ratings:

  • 4kg / m2  –  5 mtr rolls Rw26*
  • 6kg / m2  –  3 mtr rolls Rw29*
  • 8kg / m2  –  3 mtr rolls Rw30*

All rolls are 1350mm wide

*Rw rating is a single number quantity summarizing the transmission loss of a material over the frequency range from 100Hz to 3.15 kHz under AS/NZS 1276.1:1999.  Independent test reports are available.

Nu Wave “4 Zero”  (Roll Sizes and Acoustic Ratings as above)

Nu Wave’s 4 Zero barrier is the same as the “Base” product but with a flexible aluminium film facing.

The aluminium facing gives the barrier excellent fire resistant properties when tested to AS 1530.3

This additional flammability rating is important in some applications in buildings and the foil facing also allows reinforced foil tapes to be used to join two pieces of 4 Zero together when overlapped.

Why “4 Zero”

The name 4 Zero originates from the outstanding results achieved when the Nu Wave product was tested according to AS 1530.3 (early Fire Hazard Indices) test.  The outcome was the highest achievable, with each of the four indices registering a .0 hence the name 4 Zero.
