COMPANY: Charles E. Jarrell Contracting Co. Inc., Earth City, Mo.

INSTALLATION: 45,000 square feet of CertainTeed® ToughGard™ R Duct Liner

COMPLETION: Summer 2008

CUSTOMER: Lindenwood University Center for Fine and Performing Arts, St. Charles, Mo.

OBJECTIVE: Insulate the walls, ceilings, and HVAC system to reduce and absorb unwanted sound from crosstalk, equipment, and air rush noise.

DESCRIPTION: The 138,000-square-foot Lindenwood University Center for Fine and Performing Arts, features a 1,200-seat main auditorium for theatrical, musical, and dance productions; a gallery for student art exhibits; large- and medium-sized classrooms; a 175-seat black box theater; music practice rooms; a fashion and production design studio; a high-tech video suite; dance/movement studios; and vocal and instrumental music halls. To ensure that performance sound was enhanced and unwanted noise minimized, the Charles E. Jarrell Contracting Co. Inc., of Earth City, Mo., chose to insulate the system’s ductwork with CertainTeed® ToughGard™ R Duct Liner. The project called for 30,000 square feet of Type 150 2-inch and 15,000 square feet of Type 150 1-inch ToughGard R Duct Liner. The entire facility is slated to be complete by this summer.

“I found out a long time ago that if we use ToughGard R Duct Liner on a project, our noise problems are solved.”
- Dennis Emory, project manager for Charles E. Jarrell Contracting
