SCIF and Security Rooms

SCIF and Security Rooms
Security & SCIF rooms are designed to be completely self-contained including walls, doors, ceiling, floor, etc.

SCIF rooms, or Secure, Compartmented Information Facilities, are blast and bullet resistant, fire-rated and UL approved and wind and seismic approved with modular construction and interior aesthetics.

Together with the Accutone2 Sentry Series you get an industry-rated, laboratory tested and proven in-field performance with contemporary aesthetics that offer the look and feel of traditional construction with modular units.

IAC America has been long-regarded as the leader in the development of modular Secure, Compartmented Information Facilities (SCIF) andRF/Acoustic Shielded facilities and products. Now these facilities are available with Accutone™2 enhanced performance. The Accutone2 Sentry Series combines industry-rated, laboratory tested and proven in-field performance with contemporary aesthetics that offer the look and feel of traditional construction within modular units.

Variations in traditional construction,including the specification and installation of doors and the ventilation design, have the ability to seriously compromise the acoustical adequacy of a SCIF installation.

IAC Accutone2 enclosures are delivered as complete turn-key units that include:

• Walls / Doors/ Floor / Ceiling (or roof)

• Ventilation systems

• Wave-guide-beyond-cutoff filters

• Silencers

• Alarm systems

• Power and communication filters

The Accutone2 offers a completely flexible selection of fabric panels, acoustical liners and carpeting in five color-ways that combine to create palettes ranging from monochromatic to complementary. Other space enhancing options include, chair rails, fabric top-paneling, computer floors and interior finishes for floors and desktops.


Accutone2 Sentry rooms are fully demountable and relocatable. Because RF/acoustic and physical security is provided in a single-perimeter structure, relocation can easily be accomplished without loss of acoustic or RF shielding effectiveness. As fully demountable structures, they can be purchased with equipment funds rather than construction funds. Accutone2 Sentry rooms also qualify for accelerated depreciation tax benefits according to Internal Revenue Service Ruling 75-178. Savings, compared to welded-shell alternatives, can be as much as 25% of the purchase price.


Accutone2 Sentry is available in four levels of acoustic performance which meet or exceed the NIC sound groups outlined in DCID 1-21. Accutone2 panels can offer an STC rating as high as 52 dB and RF shielding effectiveness of 100 or 120 dB at 1GHz. By comparison, the traditional wood-product-core RF shield panel construction will typically offer an STC of 35 dB and an RF shielding effectiveness of approximately 50dB.


Sound Transmission Class (STC) is the laboratory rating system used to compare the acoustical effectiveness of building components such as partitions, doors, or silencers. STC is a single-number decibel rating that measures the transmission-loss properties of an element. Noise Isolation Class (NIC) is a field-rating system for complete buildings, rooms or secure facilities that is described as a single-number rating.


Noise-Lock® Multi-Wave Doors are RF shielded and comply with the requirements DCID 1-21 and are acoustically rated at STC 49. IAC America's unique cam-lift hinge allows for “Zero” threshold height. RF /acoustic contact seals eliminate the need for lever action door latching.


IAC America's extensive line of silencers satisfies almost any acoustic and pressure-drop requirement. RF attenuators are incorporated into all silencers.Silencers can be matched to meet STC, NIC and RF shielding performance specifications of modular and welded structures.


Accutone2 Multi-Wave RF-shielded panels are four inches thick and constructed with galvanized steel on both sides. Panels are filled with compressed sound-absorbing and retarding elements and welded to form an intrusion resistant construction. When used in demountable construction, panel-joints are shielded with a continuous-roll formed galvanized steel section. When used in permanent construction, panels are factory welded into shipping modules for field assembly or complete rooms.
