From the company that has brought you world-class thermal barrier and sound damping comes yet another product that will help marine vessels meet international habitability standards. Frequent vibrations and rattling of ceiling panels can be disruptive and unsettling to passengers and crew as they work, play, and sleep.

To keep vessels within IMO sound criteria, and people onboard comfortable, Mascoat offers VBS Isolation Mounts and Rail System. Each of these durable, universal mounts are designed to decouple the structure and the ceiling system, resulting in both reduced vibration and noise throughout the vessel.

Our team will work closely with owners and designers to find the best solution for each vessel and even provides a rubber damper that has tested in accordance with the latest IMO fire codes.

Mascoat provides a product that owners will benefit from, designers will be happy to incorporate into their plans, and technicians will have no problem installing. Use of the mounting brackets will also result in substantially lower labor costs and time to install and level the ceiling systems.
