Across the 15,000 upmarket residences developed by Marcus Hiles throughout Texas, cellulose sound insulation gives renters the feeling of residing in their own hideaway from the outside world. Though each property exhibits the developer’s vision of community-centric features, such as expansive recreation centers and modern business centers, Hiles understands the need for residents’ private home life—without audible interference from the world outside or even next door. Full depth cellulose is exceptionally strong in its ability to prevent intrusive noises. While standard sound insulation generates some noise reduction by prohibiting sound from traveling through walls and floors, dense packing cellulose minimizes volumes by limiting the passage along cavities in a building’s structure. Says the Cellulose Insulation Manufacturers Association, cellulose insulation products have an NRC (Noise Reduction Coefficient) rating ranging from .80 or higher, meaning that it absorbs 80% or more of the noise that comes into contact with it. It is roughly three times more dense than standard fiberglass, affording a drastic improvement over the other most common type of home insulation.
Charitable donations akin to Hiles’ have become increasingly necessary in recent years, as Dallas’s inner-city school districts have struggled to overcome a 2011 ruling by the state Legislature to cut $5.4 billion in education funding. Struck the hardest by the cuts were schools in the city’s low-income, urban communities, as minimal property taxes are unable to compensate for the budget loss. Since the controversial 2011 decision, these districts have lost an average of 12 percent of their full-time teachers, placing students in overcrowded classes and with less personal attention. As reported by the New York Times, the state of Texas identifies 66 percent of students in the Dallas district as at a considerable risk of dropping out, and Marcus Hiles believes the city’s youth deserve better opportunities. “For these children hailing from lower income families, a quality education plays a pivotal role in improving social mobility,” said Hiles. “Kindergarten through 6th grade is essential to the next generation’s success.”
