 - April 2, 2012, 3:46 AM

Smac Aero of Toulon, France, continues to develop new technology aimed at reducing aircraft cabin noise and promoted its full line of noise-reduction technology in Cannes, France.

Among the latest items is the SmacBarrier, an acoustic layer designed to reduce the transmission of sound generated around window trim panels, flooring and ceiling panels.

Also fresh off the development line is SmacFoam, specifically created to reduce sound transmission and provide sound absorption in smaller, confined spaces.

Added to that is SmacSonic, a new waterjet cutting machine that allows technicians to cut materials more precisely to customer requirements.

Finally, there is SmacTape, an adhesive tape easily applied to address smaller acoustic leaks.
