Reduce that aftermarket engine, exhaust drone, road noise, vibration and the noise that disrupts your ride and reduce the heat that comes from engine, headers, exhaust and catalytic converter - with one USA Made material - light weight HushMat Ultra
When driving your vehicle do you feel the heat coming through the firewall, floor & tunnel? Do you hear the road noise and vibration that prevents you from having a phone conversation? - does it drive you crazy? Do you wish you could stop the heat and the noise and enjoy a current model quiet ride on the inside? HushMat is the solution.
Did you know when driving on the highway at 65-70 miles per hour the interior of your vehicle is approaching 80-90 decibels? That is like having a vacuum cleaner or garbage disposal running on your passenger seat! Sounds crazy right? Listen to what 80 decibels sound like:
This happens in virtually every vehicle on the road every day. HushMat is the solution to REDUCE the noise level in your vehicle by up to 15 decibels!
Ever think about driving on the highway and then exiting? At the end of the exit ramp what is the first thing you do? You turn down your radio or music because it was too loud! It had to be that loud on the highway to over come all the noise inside your vehicle. HushMat reduces this noise floor and allows you to hear more music.
Did you also know there is over 200 degrees of heat cooking your firewall and floor pan? That's right - your engine, headers, manifold & exhaust generate tremendous heat that transfers to the metal firewall & floor - this heats up your vehicle interior. This creates a very uncomfortable ride, especially in the summer! This also forces your AC system to work harder to reduce & maintain comfortable temperatures inside your vehicle. HushMat is the solution to reduce thermal transfer into your interior. HushMat's proprietary USA manufactured visco-elastic chemistry dissipates this heat insulating your interior causing less load on your A/C system - making your vehicle significantly cooler. HushMat Ultra is proven in an independent study to lower this temperature by over 40%.
HushMat Ultra - designed for the automotive industry OEM's (Ford, Chrysler, GM, Nissan, Mitsubishi, Toyota and Honda) for over 25 years. HushMat is the only OEM specified and approved sound deadening & thermal insulating material available to the automotive aftermarket.
