Here at future garden, we pride ourselves on being able to supply you the latest garden tech for a fraction of the price of the big brands without skimping on performance. Assassin acoustic ducting performs much better than traditional acoustic ducting that uses rockwool and it’s much easier to use.
Ductwork is essential to connect the various ventilation components for your extraction system. While standard reflective ducting does the job, it can be extremely noisy as the sound of airflow passing through the duct creates a constant whooshing sound. Assassin acoustic ducting is different as its been purpose built with attenuation of sound in mind.
In a hydroponic environment, the extraction is used to remove stale air alongside excess heat and humidity, bringing fresh CO2 into the environment promoting healthy growth, trouble is, the fans move a lot of air which creates a lot of noise.
Assassin acoustic ducting helps to completely silence the sound of fans moving large amounts of air. Depending on the location of your garden, the noise it creates when in use can be of high importance – you won’t get a good quality of sleep with noisy extraction fans constantly on in close proximity.
If the sound of fans is a consideration for you when setting up your garden, you can’t get better performance at this value than assassin acoustic ducting. For a professional acoustic solution to your ductwork, check out Phonic Trap Ducting which uses similar principles but constructed from higher quality materials according to REACH standards.
Unlike traditional acoustic ducting, there’s no rockwool used to make assassin acoustic. As a result, it’s easier to install and remove without extra protection and enables a more hygienic crop as the foam does not disintegrate like rockwool can, so there’s less risk of your fruit getting contaminated.
Our Black Acoustic ducting is made up of 3 layers:
Outer black layer: The outer plastic layer is a thick PE plastic that’s robust and light-tight
White Acoustic foam: Attenuates sound through absorption of a wide range of frequencies.
White breathable inner: Allows air to expand within the ducting, reducing the sound of airflow without stifling pressure, allowing your fan to push the same amount of air through the ducting without the associated noise.
If you intend on using Assassin acoustic ducting on an unsilenced fan like an RVK, consider wrapping your fan in Acoustic Foam, the assassin acoustic ducting will silence the sound of airflow while the acoustic foam will dampen the noise of the fan. You can also hang your fan with a bungee cord which can reduce vibrational noise
You need to seal both the inner and outer layers to the flange to prevent leaks – follow the steps below to ensure a strong seal.
1. Using some tape, attach the inner white breathable material to the flange.
2. Pull up the white foam so that it covers the breathable material.
3. pull up the outer black layer so it’s in line with the other two and fasten with a jubilee clip.
4. Optional: Tape the jubilee clip to the ducting and flange to ensure no movement during operation.
Make sure you really stretch out the ducting to open it out and make the most of its acoustic capability and reduce back-pressure on the fan.
Can be used on both your intake and out-take.
