Sound Library
Sonic-Shield provides soundproofing downloads of interest as part of our online library

One of the sources that we have found and use regularly is the Noise Pollution Clearinghouse. Their website is http://www.nonoise.org/. They are a national non-profit partially funded by donations from a wide variety of companies in the industry. Here is an excerpt from their website.

The mission of the Noise Pollution Clearinghouse is to create more civil cities and more natural rural and wilderness areas by reducing noise pollution at the source.

Sonic-Shield’s Mission is aligned with the mission of the Noise Pollution Clearinghouse and we are proud to list them at the very top of our resource list for your consideration and use.
