Where did you find your Linacoustic in Dallas, and how much was a roll? Looking at the 1"

Thanks

I've heard of a few places, I just haven't checked. I need to though.

1 is Pamco:

do a search on the JM website. Look under commercial products, then HVAC/plumbing insulation.

I've done that... and called some of the places listed. Some don't answer, others say... well, we can order it. I'd like to find someone that has it in stock w/ good prices

I bought Johns MAnville Insul-shield in Plano at:

Insulating Products Inc.
1111 Jupiter Road 108-D,
Plano, TX, 75074
Phone: (972) 509-0972

It was around $275 for 400 sf (4ft X 100ft roll) at 69 cents sq/ft

I used the coated black roll and it has very similar properties as the other products used in theater builds like OC703 and such.

The warehouse manager was also a HT buff and we talked a while about what I was using it for. He was familiar with the AVS HT forum.

He had it in stock. Let me know if you find it.

Good Luck,
Mike B.

Thanks.... nice guy, but not much inventory and expensive. I think I'm going to go with the Certainteed ToughGard 2 instead. Very close to same specs (actually a bit more absorbtion at 120/250), and $170 for the 4x100 roll from SPI.

We've been getting the Linacoustic RC for $125 a roll. 1 inch 4x100 ft. They keep it stock as it must be spec'd for a lot of the office spaces in this area.

I just bought 2 rolls of Linacoustic RC earlier this week at

J-Mil Sheet Metal Fabricators
2143 Gus Thomasson
Mesquite, TX
972-681-9600

I paid $170/roll + tax

Although he called it Permacote, it says Linacoustic RC on the wrapping. It's 1" thick, 48" wide, and 100' long.

I have 2 large AC ducts running the length of my future HT. I was going to case them in with drywall. Could Linacoustic rigid board be used instead of drywall? Or should I just use the Linacoustic roll on the ductwork and then drywall them?

Has anyone else been able to find Linacoustic RC or similar locally? J-Mil wants $250 for the roll.

Tried the JM website and half the numbers are disconnected!

Thanks,
Tommy

Can you PM me the name and address of your seller? I would like to get one roll of Linacoustic RC.

Sorry to resurrect a 8-9 year old thread, but thought I would throw in my experience for anyone else curious.

I called IPI and the guy literally said "I have no idea what you're talking about" and we left it at that. Haha.

I ended up getting it here for $264 + tax. Considering I struck out EVERYWHERE else and the freight delivery of such an item was ranging from $50-320 (no joke!) this was the least expensive option.

Just for anyone in Dallas area that might still be looking. Oh and I might be able to hook you up with 50-100' of the stuff in a month or so...!

Thanks

Old thread, but still useful for us Dallas residents. Travis, was J-Mil the best option for buying Linacoustic RC?

Unfortunately, yes. There might be another best option but I seriously contacted roughly 10 places (local and national) and that's where I ended up getting it.

I'm not sure how much I have left (I'm still finishing construction!) but can hook you up if you are needing a smaller amount (located just barely in Little Elm on the West side of Frisco). Let me know, and hope it helps. Happy building!

Thanks. I am located in Argyle/Highland Village so not too far. I am in early stages, with just the framing completed. Trying to source hard to find materials early to keep the build going without excuses

My in-laws live in HV, so not far. I actually just finished using what I need. I'll try to get an accurate measurement of what I have left in case you are interested. My project has taken about 26 months, but I had a kid in there and we are a single income family, so it's all been custom and done ourselves.


Anyway, PM me or let me know if you want that. I will try to put on craigslist at some point to get rid of. You don't have a need for a Middle Atlantic rack, do you? I have a VRK-44-31H that I'm looking to get rid of that's in good shape.

Ya, let me know what you end up with. I already have a MA rack, pretty much the same one except it is 24U (shown below)
