President and Founder
The man with the vision and background to create awareness of an ever growing problem and bring a simple solution to the world!
Lahnie Johnson is the driving force behind Acoustiblok worldwide. From humble beginnings and a life dedicated to the pursuit of innovation he has spent the last 40+ years building successful companies around the simple concept that is "give the world what it needs". While working in the aerospace industry in the sixties he saw the need for a higher quality of sound reproduction in our lives. He used his technical expertise to build a business based on audio, an incredible establishment that has spanned over 4 decades. He engineered and created sound systems for concerts, night clubs, homes, cars, boats, and planes. In the height of the home cinema craze his company built dedicated cinemas that would rival commercial ones.
This is when it came to him; the world was faced with yet another need, the need to isolate sound and prevent it from bleeding into surrounding environments. Johnson was always aware of how sound propagates and travels, but never concerned himself with isolating it. So, he spent months researching and studying all the practices in use today to isolate sound/noise. The summation of his research was to completely isolate sound; expensive, involved, and required an immense amount of engineering on all fronts of construction. This led him to another question. What if a simple, fast, and affordable sound isolation technique could reduce airborne sound/noise by say 85-90%? This was the answer. Johnson took an idea that has been around for centuries and perfected it. He experimented and tested with hundreds of materials, techniques, and applications for an acoustical solution. Acoustiblok was the result! With over 400 U.L. classifications, no technical expertise required for installation, and the ability to add to an existing design, Acoustiblok revolutionized the building industry when it came to sound isolation.
Johnson is an engineer, visionary, and entrepreneur. He continues to inspire his team with a passion for advancements in acoustical isolation. His genuine concern for creating better sounding environments drives him to continue in the education of our societies concerning the effect of acoustics in our everyday life.
