What We Do

STC Sound Control makes acoustical products for architecture that minimize the annoyance and aggravation related to noise. With simple solutions, we make the environments where people live, work and play more comfortable. From reducing sound from adjoining rooms, to absorbing reverberant sound within a room, to minimizing sound from floors above, STC products help create better experiences in settings from hotels to hospitals.

Our Mission

STC Sound Control is dedicated to helping builders – architects, developers, contractors – by making simple, cost effective, high performance acoustical products for architecture.

Our Objective

From the very beginning, STC has been driven to help customers avoid the high costs and difficult manufacturing and installation processes of other products on the market.

Our People

With a wealth of both manufacturing and acoustical expertise, STC Sound Control is proud to offer the best solutions for privacy and noise control at lower costs – and with less inconvenience – than competitors.
