QuietRide Solutions first opened their doors way back in 1977, in Stockton, California, in order to cater to the needs of classic car restoration enthusiasts. While restoring their antique automobiles, restorers were finding that they little to no means of eliminating the excessive amounts of road and engine bay noise that they were experiencing. To help them cope with this trouble, QuietRide Solutions began creating insulation materials that were specifically designed to reduce and often eliminate the air-borne, structural-borne and road noises that make their way to the passenger cabin of classic Mustangs and other vehicles. QuietRide Solutions began with a simple mission, and that is to provide quality products that are easily installed by both the home and professional mechanic, as well as the average do-it-yourselfer all with minimal effort, and that mission has not changed in the over 30 years they have been operating.
As one of the leading manufacturers in the automotive insulation industry, QuietRide Solutions has been contributing to the improvement of the insulation product line since they opened. They were the first company in the automotive aftermarket to develop an effective material that would work to reduce the outside heat and cold that entered the cabin as well as the vibration and noise issues that were being faced by classic Mustang restorers. In addition to this, they were also the first company to create firewall insulation panels that were intended to cover the interior of the firewall bulkhead and reduce the large amounts of excess heat and noise that can enter the passenger cabin through the engine bay. In 2000, QuietRide Solutions developed a new insulation material, acoustisound, which was designed to insulate the cabin of classic Mustangs beyond that of previous materials, as well as provide optimum conditions for improving sounds quality of sound systems. All of these products, which were industry firsts, have influenced the development of a wide range of other manufacturers in their design and manufacturing processes.
