SilentWave™ RCD delivers exceptional noise reduction for recreational craft with an industry-setting 4x improvement in the cabin environment for passengers and crew, making it one of the most significant developments of its kind in recent years.

All yacht builders want to do is maximise space, minimise weight and deliver maximum performance, including quiet operation, for their clients. Fully compliant with the Recreational Craft Directive, SIDERISE SilentWave™ RCD is the optimum sound reduction solution for recreational craft less than 34 metres. With an unmatched 4x reduction (6dB) in cabin sound pressure level, this lightweight composite treatment delivers comfort, security and protection to all passengers and crew.

Committed to continued research and development, SIDERISE went back to the drawing board to develop a new composite acoustic product that offers significantly improved absorption performance and would be aesthetically pleasing to this high-end marine market.

Graham Laws, Business Development Officer of SIDERISE said: “Modern motor yachts are built for performance, but power does come with a price. As engine performance increases so do sound levels, which can have a negative impact for crew and passengers on-board. Our new composite acoustic product can deliver the ultimate balance between acoustic performance, weight and cost.”

Easy to install, SIDERISE SilentWave™ RCD is moisture-resistant, non-flammable and features a high aesthetic finish. Tested for fire performance in accordance with ISO 4589-3 (Oxygen index >21% @elevated temperature), the composite prevents ingress of fuel and oil.

SIDERISE sets out to deliver engineered performance, keeping both large voids and mass to a minimum. The company’s innovative acoustic laminates can achieve previously unseen levels of acoustic attenuation at low frequency.

SIDERISE acoustic products have been developed over a number of years and third-party tested to certify their performance.

SIDERISE, global leader in the development, design and manufacture of fire, acoustic and thermal solutions has launched the SIDERISE DWX range, an innovative system for the wrapping of metal ducting systems

SIDERISE, global leader in the development, design and manufacture of fire, acoustic and thermal solutions has launched the SIDERISE DWX range, an innovative system for the wrapping of metal ducting systems. The system offers both thermal insulation to maintain the efficiency of a heating, ventilating and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems as well as acoustic enhancements to reduce sound transmission. Its high performance helps to promote comfort in the workplace through the creation of energy efficient and quiet HVAC systems.

SIDERISE DWX is a soft flexible quilt that offers exceptional performance. It provides excellent sound and thermal insulation qualities, is highly durable offering long term performance in use and offers Class 0 reaction to fire. SIDERISE retains compliance at the top of its agenda, and as such, SIDERISE DWX has been tested in an independent laboratory and is fully compliant with building regulations. Furthermore, the testing was carried out on the finished products, rather than relying on the performance of individual components before they are assembled.

SIDERISE DWX encompasses a range of solutions. DW5P and DW10P comprise a flexible resin-bonded glass fibre quilt that contains an anti-dusting fleece. DW5P has a 5kg/m2 surface weight whilst DW10P has a 10kg/m2 surface weight. DW5P/NPF and DW10P/NPF comprise a polyester / PP ultra-fine fibre spacing layer. All are wrapped with a polymeric acoustic membrane and diamond stitched. The exposed surface is finished with a Class 0 reinforced aluminium foil.

The range is designed for HVAC systems as an external cladding for sheet metal ducts. However it can also be used for a range of other applications including construction, marine, automotive and OEM, where it can be used on ventilation equipment, concrete columns, generators, compressors, process plant and electrical equipment where there is a need to reduce airborne noise.


The typical level of improvement of sound transmission loss through the installation of SIDERISE DWX is 18dB, based on a single layer application on a 0.8mm steel duct. Specific sound transmission loss is dependent upon a number of factors and SIDERISE's technical team are able to work closely with clients to provide solutions that meet their exact requirements. As well as its acoustic properties and good damping characteristics, SIDERISE DWX also provides thermal efficiency, helping to reduce energy loss.

Flexible and easy to install, SIDERISE DWX can be installed with mechanical fixings such as insulation support pins with non-return washers.

SIDERISE ‘Nexus Fusion’ provides specifiers with a high strength, robust insulation core that offers an unequalled combination of fire, thermal and acoustic performance.

Designed for use with glass spandrel panels in curtain walling and bespoke glazing systems, SIDERISE ‘Nexus Fusion’ provides specifiers with a high strength, robust insulation core that offers an unequalled combination of fire, thermal and acoustic performance.

SIDERISE Nexus Fusion (previously Lamatherm Nexus NXS) spandrel insulation is a robust European Fireclass A1 lamella board that meets the performance requirements of curtain walling systems replacing the use of compressible or combustible insulating materials. Launched today at FIREX 2018, The product will be featured on stand A196 at Firex International from 19th to 21st June at Excel in London.

Through precision manufacturing and tight tolerances, Nexus Fusion comprises high strength stonewall lamella with a uniform vertical fibre structure – this unique feature means that Nexus Fusion boards can be fitted avoiding the risk of slippage due to building movement, and without gaps or slumping of the insulation.    

Being inherently ‘non-combustible’, mechanically strong and dimensionally stable, SIDERISE Nexus Fusion spandrel insulation provides the best possible consideration for maintaining the systems fire integrity at the junction between the building structure and the curtain wall. However, the actual fire resistance achieved will remain primarily dependent on the curtain wall or frame specification.

Tested as part of a curtain wall assembly to EN1364-3 in Fire Rated Façades for 30 minutes without failure, Fusion boards tested in their end use application have been rated as European Fireclass A1. Available in a range of standard thicknesses between 20mm and 200mm, the product is foil faced on one side with an open filament net on the other side to facilitate bonding to glass. This negates the need for pins and washers, simplifying installation and reducing costs.

William McDowell Business Development and Product Manager of SIDERISE said:  “Nexus Fusion will ensure the integrity of the interface between the insulation and the firestop is not compromised and effective compartmentation is maintained. Our firesafe solution eliminates the costly option of creating a bespoke metal tray lining system.”

SIDERISE Nexus products use a unique patented process to produce a true structurall lamella board with optimal fire, thermal and acoustic performance. Specifiers and building owners can then be certain these products will continue to perform after insulation, offering the best environmental conditions for those living and working in buildings, and to reliably protect in the event of fire.

It provides specifiers of architectural panels and doors with a firesafe and high strength insulation core that offers fire safety, rigidity, flatness and exceptional structural performance.

With the increasing demand for firesafe materials across the construction industry, SIDERISE has launched Nexus Core. It provides specifiers of architectural panels and doors with a firesafe and high strength insulation core that offers fire safety, rigidity, flatness and exceptional structural performance.

A truly firesafe structural insulation solution, SIDERISE Nexus Core (previously Lamatherm Nexus NXR) lamella boards meet the performance requirements of modern industrial and commercial buildings being used in curtain walling systems, doors and volumetric building elements. Launched today at FIREX 2018, Nexus CORE provides a cost-effective, pre-finished rigid core to be used wherever thermal, fire or acoustic insulation is required within a bonded composite panel. The product will be featured on stand A196 at Firex International from 19th to 21st June at Excel in London.

Nexus Core comprises high strength stonewool lamella with a uniform fibre structure.  Precision manufacturing and tight tolerances means that manufacturers can use thinner facing materials that can now remain robust and aesthetically pleasing. 

As part of the patented Nexus process, the lamella undergoes lateral compression which eliminates all gaps within and between the lamella, thereby removing any weak points and creating a ‘true’ lamella board. This increases structural performance and produces a more homogenous core. The Nexus Core lamella boards are supplied with an open filament net facing to both sides to allow for structural bonding and also optimal handle-ability.

William McDowell Business Development and Product Manager of SIDERISE said :  “Whilst facades can be used to create a stunning architectural statement, it is essential these buildings are constructed to perform efficiently and safely. Nexus Core is made from European Fireclass A1 stonewool enabling manufacturers to produce firesafe composite structures.”

SIDERISE Nexus products use a unique patented process to produce a true structurally lamella board with optimal and tested fire, thermal and acoustic performance. Specifiers and building owners can then be certain these products will continue to perform after insulation, offering the best environmental conditions for those living and working in buildings, and to reliably protect in the event of fire.

Leading manufacturer of fire, acoustic and thermal insulation products SIDERISE is delighted to announce its success in winning the prestigious Sunday Times Lloyds SME Export Track Award for Excellence in Emerging Markets at an awards ceremony in London.

One of 85 invited companies at the 3rd annual ceremony held at the Jumeirah Carlton Tower Hotel, SIDERISE was successful in achieving 60th place in this previously announced ranking and was delighted to receive additional recognition.

The SME Export Track 100 Excellence in Emerging Markets Award was presented by Emma Gilthorpe, Heathrow Executive Director of Expansion, to Tony James, Chief Executive of SIDERISE.  Headquartered in Maesteg, SIDERISE is one of four companies in Wales which are all new entrants to the league table of Britain’s small and medium-sized (SME) companies with the fastest-growing international sales. 

With its diverse range of fire-stopping insulation and acoustic solutions, the company achieved an impressive international sales growth of 52%, with a highlight being construction product related export sales of £1.8 million for year end 2015

Tony James, Chief Executive at SIDERISE said: “We are delighted to be recognised as one of the UK’s leading exporters and this prestigious award is a fantastic achievement for SIDERISE. The demand for our wide range of innovative products remains extremely strong and this international success wouldn’t be possible without the support and effort of all our staff in Maesteg and Hadleigh.”

SIDERISE operates in the Middle East - principally the UAE and with an increasing focus on Qatar - Malaysia, India and across mainland Europe.

Gareth Oakley, Managing Director SME banking at Lloyds Banking Group, the title sponsor, commented: “For businesses that take the leap to trade overseas, the rewards can be significant – the strong growth achieved by this year’s SME Export Track 100 is proof of that.”

SIDERISE products have been used on a number of high profile projects across the globe. From meeting the rigorous standards at the Athlete’s Villages for both the 2000 and 2012 Olympics in Sydney and London, to the prestigious Canary Wharf Development as well as hospitals, government and pharmaceutical buildings, the company’s fire protection and acoustic solutions are simple in concept, simple to use and simple to install. 

From buses to road sweepers, military to construction plant vehicles, vehicle noise is an issue in the commercial sector whether it is new developments in powertrain technology or hybridisation or electrification of vehicles.

While many of today’s trucks make 10 times less noise than those built over 40 years ago, road traffic noise remains the most widespread cause of environmental health problems across Europe.  According to the European Environment Agency, almost 70 million people are exposed to excessive long term average road noise levels (>55db), the level recognised to pose a serious risk to health by the World Health Organisation. 

A number of factors contribute to traffic noise, including the road surface and speed- dependent aerodynamic noise, but most urban traffic noise originates from the vehicles rather than the tyres.  The noise standards for commercial vehicles are particularly significant as they cause half of the road noise-burden across Europe.

Emissions pollution has driven changes in engine design such as hybrids and lean engines. However, high running temperatures can result in these engines being noisier.  Even electric vehicles have different noise characteristics which need controlling to gain market acceptance as they often have devices for energy storage that generate noise intermittently themselves .

Tackling noise at source

The vehicle engine is an understandable source of noise, and when you combine this with the powertrain, there are a large number of interlinked components that produce sound.  From rattles to sound pressure waves, these sounds include vibrations and ‘surface radiation’, which is the low-frequency sound produced by a surface as it pulsates, like a drum. The ‘mechanics’ of noise mean that as the sound level of any individual component is reduced, others become more noticeable – which means that all components must be worked on together to actually reduce engine (and vehicle) noise. This is also true for other noise producing vehicle elements. After reducing powertrain and exhaust sounds, other noises may become noticeable such as aerodynamic resistance or previously unnoticed tyre/road noise.

An additional benefit of reducing noise at source is that driver and passenger noise will be significantly improved. Further improvements to sound quality in-cab can be gained by addition of sound insulation and absorption behind or under the interior trim.

A quieter life

Having manufactured acoustic and fire insulation products for more than 40 years, SIDERISE offers a large range of tried-and-tested product enhancements specifically developed to the broad spectrum of requirements in the commercial vehicle sector.

Offering high insulation and absorption performance as well as fuel, oil and chemical resistance, these sound reduction and damping treatments have been expertly designed for the most challenging environments. 

At under 10kg/m3 density, SIDERISE foams are class leaders in weight- saving and by combining with other layers, excellent and targeted acoustic performance can be achieved at minimum thickness. These foam products can also be used in public service vehicles (PSVs) for thermal insulation leading to weight savings of the order of 100kg per vehicle, whilst improving thermal and acoustic performance. The addition of viscoelastic and polymeric heavy layers to these foams can produce high insulation and vibration damping performance.

Paul Handscomb of SIDERISE said, “Our noise control materials can be quickly installed on the production line or workshop and are independently tested to give our clients complete confidence in product performance.”

Fire protection

Recent awareness of the risks of vehicles in tunnels has also required materials with increased fire resistance and protection from ingress of potentially flammable fluids. Devices to burn off particulates and catalytic convertors generate significant heat in engine areas.  In addition, the increased containment by undertrays or close cladding to an engine requires higher temperature resistance materials. 

SIDERISE solutions will provide both integrated noise reduction performance of up to 20dB and are also compliant with Euro 6 legislation and tested to the toughest flammability regulations.  Able to withstand up to 800°C and 30 minutes fire protection, these non-combustible solutions offer exceptional thermal and fire safety performance.

With traffic noise affecting greater numbers of people and faced with tough regulations, the importance of taking a holistic approach to noise control on commercial vehicles has never been more apparent.  Through a wide range of independently tested noise control treatments, SIDERISE will be able to quickly and professionally reach the optimum solution, each and every time, and for the most challenging environments.  

Leading manufacturer of fire, acoustic and thermal insulation products SIDERISE is delighted to have been ranked 60th in the prestigious Sunday Times Lloyds SME Export Track 100 league table.
