Acoustical Analysis and TestingOur engineering effort focuses on helping businesses solve noise issues found in:

  • Industrial settings inside a manufacturing plant
  • Consumer or industrial products that require vibration and noise control
  • Architectural settings inside a building such as an office, school or church
  • Environmental settings around a neighborhood or worksite

We base our recommendations on actual sound test data and analysis, and we offer our customers the optimal solution to their noise issues. Every consulting project includes a written report and offers the client a meeting to discuss the recommendations and answer any questions.

Here are examples of the types of projects that we have recently completed:

  • Aided an appliance manufacturer in the redesign of a small appliance to reduce the noise produced by that appliance.
  • Designed a rooftop enclosure system to ensure an HVAC system would comply with local noise ordinances.
  • Provided noise level studies for applications including gun ranges, manufacturing facilities, restaurants, saw mills, new residential construction and others to ensure that they meet local or federal noise standards

Our acousticians are well educated and trained in the field of acoustics, vibration and noise control engineering. The principal acoustical engineer is a licensed Professional Engineer registered in the Commonwealth of Virginia and is credentialed as an INCE (International Noise Control Engineering) Board Certified Member.

Specialized Engineering Services:

Acoustical Solutions engineering and consulting team, based on prior work experience, has unique capabilities in vibration and noise control for industrial, office and residential applications. Specifically, the industrial applications include aircraft engine noise, piping and valve noise, marine vessel and shipboard noise and machinery noise. Other industrial applications include custom design of acoustical enclosures and barriers as needed for gas turbines, large generators, transformers, grinders, shredders, chillers and other miscellaneous industrial equipment. The noise will usually need to be enclosed or blocked at the source to meet noise reduction requirements. Since most machines will be unique, a custom solution will be designed to meet the specific noise criteria, air flow requirements or access for operation and maintenance of the unit.

Turn-Key Solutions:

Our engineering team will provide a non-biased recommendation to solve a client’s vibration and noise control problems. In some cases, customers want a turn-key solution. Acoustical Solutions is the leading provider of acoustical products and installation services in the US, so offering a turn-key solution to solve a noise issue is often the preferred approach. The advantage of a turn-key approach is an efficient, single-sourced coordination of the project from design to implementation.

Here is the process:
  • Acoustical Solutions engineering team conducts acoustical tests, analyzes data, designs a solution, provides a written report and meets with the customer to review the recommendations and answer questions.
  • An Acoustical Solutions sales consultant then provides a quote to implement the recommendations. The quote typically includes products and installation at the specified site.
  • Once the order is placed, the product is manufactured and shipped to the customer site, where an Acoustical Solutions install team will implement the solution.
  • Afterward, the customer may opt to have our engineering team conduct acoustical tests to confirm the efficacy of the solution.
  • Upon completion of the project, we are able to solve the noise problem by offering a complete solution from start to finish.
