Industrial noise control involves a wide array of acoustical issues and noise sources. Industrial machinery tends to create structure borne sound as well as airborne sound. OSHA regulations require sound levels to be within certain ranges for workplace safety. Lowering noise levels also help improve communication efforts and reduce worker fatigue. To solve these issues, noisy equipment typically requires an enclosure to prevent sound leaks as well as isolation mounts to prevent transmission of structure borne sound.
Acoustical materials, such as wall panels and baffles, may be used to lower excessive reverberation times and keep sound from unnecessarily reflecting to other areas of the space. Reducing sound and noise in open manufacturing and industrial applications can help produce a better work environment and meet required safety regulations.
Booths and Enclosures – Industrial Facility The Issue: A customer contacted Acoustical Solutions to assist with designing a soundproof enclosure for their TCO workcell Noise Reduction Project. One of our Booths and Enclosures seemed the perfect solution. A noise mapping study was conducted in late 2018 that showed noise levels at the TCO workcell exceeded […] Read More »
Soundproof Booths and Enclosures – Danfoss Drives The Issue: Danfoss Drives contacted Acoustical Solutions interested in designing a soundproof enclosure for a hydraulics production facility. They had a testing machine that was creating very loud noises, making it very uncomfortable for the techs to work or hold meetings nearby. This was because of the high-pitched […] Read More »
Everyone knows that Amazon is a huge and formidable company. We all purchase products from them, stream their videos and television shows, and use their cloud services to run our businesses. They are taking over the retail universe and some would say the world. Among millions of products they sell, they offer acoustical products, […] Read More »
SUMMARY: Acoustical Solutions recently worked with Circular Congregational Church of Charleston, SC to solve an echo and reverberation problem. This was making meetings in this hall unbearable for many members and visitors. The noise reduction solution was to install fabric wrapped wall panels above the windows. APPLICATION INTRODUCTION: Meeting Halls and multi-purpose rooms are […] Read More »
Soundproofing industrial noise will help reduce occupational exposure to high sound levels to create a productive and safe working environment. Noise is a huge concern in factories and industrial facilities. It can create hazards in the workplace and affect your health. Industrial Facilities often need to meet specific noise level requirements as outlined by OSHA […] Read More »
Employees at industrial facilities are typically exposed to higher levels of noise than the average worker. Machinery in sawmills, compressor stations, and manufacturing plants can be very loud. This can far exceed the level of noise OSHA deems safe for an 8-hour shift. To combat the danger of NIHL (noise induced hearing loss), industrial hearing […] Read More »
