High Performance Acoustic Isolation that Rests On Any Desktop. The Silencer acoustic enclosure is Herzan’s solution for atomic force microscopes (AFM) and other compact research equipment that require high performance acoustic isolation in a form factor befitting a desktop.

Herzan began working with makers and users of AFMs to develop a solution tailored to the needs of a modern, space-restricted research lab. The Silencer combines the high quality features that have become standard to all Herzan enclosures, with a compact and cost-effective value for acoustic isolation. The Silencer is also one of Herzan’s most upgradeable acoustic enclosures, with opportunities for custom sizes, shapes, and a myriad of other research-specific features.


Data Sheet
Data Sheet
  • Maximum Isolation: Multiple variable density layers of sound-damping material ensure substantial isolation of high and low frequency acoustic noise.
  • Compact Form Factor: Designed to provide researchers with an effective acoustic isolation solution in even the most space-restricted lab environments.
  • Full Accessibility: Ease of access (reversible door) and maneuverability (light weight + door handles) allows research to become seamless and adaptable to change.
  • Limitless Personalization: Upgrades for performance, environmental, usability, and accessibility features available.


In addition to the Silencer’s standard features, additional upgrade features can be added, making the Silencer versatile in addressing specific research needs for any user. Popular upgrade features include:

  • Integrated Vibration Isolation (Active or Passive)
  • Acoustic Performance Boost
  • EMI Shielding
  • Gas Purge
  • Temperature Stability
  • Custom Sizes and Colors
  • Custom Cable Port Variations
  • And More!



  • Internal Dimensions:
    • Imperial (W x D x H): 18 x 19.8 x 34.5 inches
    • Metric (W x D x H): 457 x 503 x 876 mm
  • External Dimensions: 
    • Imperial (W x D x H): 20.1 x 24.1 x 36.3 inches
    • Metric (W x D x H): 510 x 612 x 922 mm

When determining the enclosure suitable for your instrument or application, verify the dimensions of the instrument/application do not exceed the internal dimensions of the enclosure. There are many standard enclosures sizes (with custom enclosure sizes available), allowing any instrument or application to receive research-grade acoustic isolation.



Performance Highlights
  • 31.6 dB of sound loss @ 100 Hz
  • 35.2 dB of sound loss @ 500 Hz
  • 34 dB of sound loss @ 1,000 Hz
  • 38.7 dB of sound loss @ 2,500 Hz
  • 33 dB of sound loss @ 5,000 Hz

The multi-layered, variable density material lining the inside of the Silencer allows for the highest performing acoustic isolation performance across a broad frequency spectrum.
