What Is a Silencer?

Posted by Price Industries on September 7, 2021 at 9:59 AM

A Practical, Engineered Solution for Controlling Noise

Silencers, also referred to as sound attenuators or sound traps, are used as part of the HVAC system to reduce the noise that would otherwise be transmitted to the nearest indoor or outdoor space. In large commercial or industrial applications, silencers can be used in large banks to prevent noise from transferring into the environment.
