Reinforced 1 LB MLV
- Used in assemblies that require a more durable and tear resistant material.
- Only available in 1 LB, 4.5 foot x 30 foot rolls.
- $50 flat rate shipping on your entire order to main 48 US states only.
Reinforced mass loaded vinyl, commonly referred to as MLV or acoustic barrier, is used in applications that require a more durable and tear resistant MLV for both interior and exterior installations. Reinforced barrier is only available in 1 LB weight, 1/8" thickness, in rolls that are 4 feet wide and 30 feet long. Our reinforced MLV utilizes a high strength poly fabric in combination with MLV to dramatically improve its durability, tear, and hanging strength.
This material won't shrink, rot, or cause metal corrosion. It also resists adverse environmental conditions and UV light.
Common applications for reinforced mass loaded vinyl:
- Exterior Fences
- Other general commercial use
This material is not intended for low frequency sound transfer or footfall impact noise transfer.
*Samples are not available for this material. Other roll sizes or partial rolls are not available.

Installation of mass loaded vinyl is simple in any application. Wherever the material is installed, it must be installed solid, with no gaps. Any gaps in the barrier should be caulked with any brand caulk and taped over with a standard duct tape or foil tape.
SUSPENDED AS CURTAIN OR ON CHAIN LINKED FENCE
Use basic grommets sized to fit the application with appropriate spacing (spacing varies based on preference) and loop fasteners. For fences, grommet the top and bottom of the MLV, as well as the right side or left side (depending on which direction you are installing the material). Overlap seems by 6" leaving the overlapping side without grommets and the side that is overlapped firmly attached with grommets and loop fasteners.
Roll the material flat, butt the seams together, and tape with a standard duct tape or foil tape found at any hardware store. Caulk the perimeter to create a solid installation from corner to corner.
WALLS, CEILINGS, OR OTHER HARD SURFACES
To fasten MLV in both interior and exterior applications, use standard drywall screws or nails with a thin washer, or a roofer's nail (with pre-attached plastic or metal washer piece). A staple gun with a wide crown is also quick and effective way of fastening MLV. All seams should be butted together if the material must lay flat or slightly overlapped when possible. Caulk all perimeters, including around outlets or other protrusions.
AROUND PIPES, DUCT, AND SIMILAR APPLICATIONS
MLV should be wrapped tight to the surface, overlap the seams slightly, and tape the seam with a standard duct tape or foil tape found at any hardware store. If taping the seams to hold the MLV in place is not an option, you can use an aerosol adhesive like 3M Super 77 or similar. This can also be purchased at any hardware store.
