Generator Sound Shield

Does anyone know where I can have a generator sound shield made? I currently have a blanket over my generator and it is still loud. I'm looking for something that is sound proof!

not sure if it will work for you, but when we go camping we have a small "box" made out of the thick foam insulation you can pick up at home depot, dont want to make it too air tight, air flow is always good

suggest lining the compartment with lead foil-backed foam. you could google
for products. the air intake manifold is also a source of noise. but putting a blanket on the beast is probably going to hurt the cooling of the engine. the
compartment needs to be ventilated to the outside. the supplier of the unit
may have some good ideas.

There are several products made for lining the engine compartment to reduce the sound levels that get out... any one of these would probably work quite well for your generator compartment.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
