Noisy Off-Roaders

Some 4×4 vehicles can be excessively noisy on or off road, and as a result this, can make the cabin an uncomfortable place to be. Land Rovers and Toyotas, for example, are well known for their noisy ride qualities, however PB Customs offer a bespoke sound deadening service on all makes of off-road vehicles.

Excessive cabin noise is caused, in the main, by the vibration of the panels, which stems from engine vibrations, coupled with tyre and road movement. PB Customs sound deadening technique generally involves stopping the vibrations by first fitting specially designed vibration absorbing mats to the body panels and floor and then adding layers of sound absorbent foam and vinyl.

Sound Deadening Benefits

Sound deadening not only decreases the volume levels inside the vehicle, it also has thermal properties, making your vehicle cooler in the summer months and warmer in the winter months. The product will dissipate the heat and provide another barrier against the cold, which again makes your vehicle a far more comfortable place to be.

Skinz Sound Deadening

Our ‘go-to’ sound deadening solution is a brand called Skinz, a highly efficient, composite material designed to reduce noise, vibration and heat soak through panel work. It is made with 3mm of butyl rubber with a thick aluminium foil layer. The vibration and noise dampening qualities will make your off-road vehicle feel solid and create a luxury car feel; doors close with a reassuring clunk and no tinny rattles. Road noise is also considerably reduced so motorway driving is a far more pleasant experience.

A vehicle fitted with sound deadening can decrease the noise volume inside the cabin by up to 12 decibels. When you consider (to the human ear) a decrease in 6-9 decibels is 50% quieter, with a relatively small outlay, you can make a vast improvement on your driving experience.
