Reduce Freeway Fatigue

Avon Lake, Ohio based sound and heat management specialist Design Engineering Inc. (DEI) says its Boom Mat vibration damping material (#50200) "can be used inside motorcycle fairings and saddle bags to reduce unwanted vibration and help give audio systems a cleaner sound.

"The material solves the problem of noise, vibrations, squeaks and rattles that come from roads, stereos, engines and more," says John Gabriel, DEI Powersports Manager. "Adding Boom Mat to problem areas can help to maximize riding enjoyment and reduce freeway fatigue."

DEI says that its Boom Mat vibration damping material is a "premium quality damping material providing extreme noise damping for the most demanding commercial and sound competition applications. It traps sound between a thick, 4 mm aluminum stiffening top skin and an asphalt-free, pure butyl 2 mm noise-constraining layer.

"Installation is simple with worry-free, no-snag adhesion to any interior surface, including vertical or overhead, even in the most demanding of temperature extremes. Simple 25-50% coverage gets the job done while saving weight, material costs and installation time."

Boom Mat requires minimal install time and features an easy-peel plastic release liner rather than the more common paper backing - which often tears, leaving liner on the back. The material is engineered to continue performing in extreme temperatures - cold and heat.
