Outdoor Equipment Noise Control

When noise levels are high, employees can't communicate effectively, resulting in unnecessary accidents. And over time, exposure to loud noise can permanently damage hearing.

Machinery noise bounces off these hard surfaces and back into the space. This noise can cause safety hazards, interfere with production and ultimately cost your company money. The sounds can be distracting. The more distractions, the less productivity. Protect employees and save money on a lost of production. OSHA has strict guidelines for noise pollution in the workplace.

What Machine Noise Control can do:

  • Provides a safe work environment and prevents hearing loss.
  • Increase productivity by decreasing distractions.
  • Reduce complaints from neighboring buildings, allowing you to focus on what's most important.

Machine Noise Control Products:

Outdoor sound curtains are used to enclose Vacuums and hydraulic pumps. They serve as partitions for blower noise and outdoor fence construction. The panels also control noise from industrial projects like HVAC units. Factories, industrial sites, mining and manufacturing facilities commonly use them to comply with OSHA's industrial safety noise levels.

Outdoor sound curtains reduce noise from generators, pumps, and equipment. The panels are flexible and can be installed on frames, fences, and other types of support. They are seen on the fences of construction sites, by-pass pumps, rooftop barriers, and gas Vacuums. The panels are modular and versatile. They are able to withstand prolonged UV exposure, high heat and are reusable.

ANC-EXT-R-2 offers the benefits of both a noise barrier and a sound absorber composite in one product. This EXT product consists of an exterior grade, UV resistant heavy-duty faced quilted fiberglass absorber bonded to a one-pound per sq. ft. reinforced loaded vinyl barrier. The heavy-duty facing is a 10 oz per sq yd vinyl-coated-polyester (VCP) quilted to the sound absorber rather than the standard 4.5 oz facing. Curtain panels are constructed with grommets across the top and bottom and exterior grade Velcro seals along the vertical edges.

It's called "The Big Dig". Boston's Central Artery and Harbor Tunnel project is the largest highway construction job ever undertaken in the United States...at a cost over $11 billion dollars!


One sensitive issue of such a significant project is how construction noise will impact local businesses and residences. Quincy Marketplace, a unique, open-air collection of restaurants, shops and offices, is located adjacent to a section of the project requiring working underneath an overhead highway. Read More

Generator Noise Control

Generators are often noisy an effective solution is often required to suppress the noise emitted from them. Generator noise is usually a nuisance because they are sitting on comparatively lightweight structures. The best way to soundproof and to reduce any noise from a generator regardless of size is to enclose it within a Floor Mounted 4-Sided Soundproofing blanket Enclosure. For best results the enclosure should be as large as possible to allow less heat buildup and also to be more effective at reducing the noise output from reaching other areas and acoustically isolating the pump to contain structure borne sound being transmitted from where it is mounted.

Sources of generator noise:
  • Engine noise – This is mainly caused by mechanical and combustion forces and typically ranges from 100 dB(A) to 121 dB(A), measured at one meter, depending on the size of the engine.
  • Cooling fan noise – This results from the sound of air being moved at high speed across the engine and through the radiator. Its level ranges from 100 dB(A) to 105 (A) dB at one meter.
  • Alternator noise – This is caused by cooling air and brush friction and ranges from approximately 80 dB(A) to 90 dB(A) at one meter.
  • Induction noise – This is caused by fluctuations in current in the alternator windings that give rise to mechanical noise that ranges from 80 dB(A) to 90 dB(A) at one meter.
  • Engine exhaust – Without an exhaust silencer, this ranges from 120 dB(A) to 130 dB(A) or more and is usually reduced by a minimum of 15 dB(A) with a standard silencer.
  • Structural/mechanical noise – This is caused by mechanical vibration of various structural parts and components that is radiated as sound.

Vacuum Noise Control

Depending on the current sound levels of the Vacuum and your noise reduction goals, an abatement solution can be determined. In most applications a soundproofing soundproofing blanket enclosure will meet your sound reduction needs. This is a two to four sided soundproofing enclosure with or without a roof.

Typically a frame and track is constructed to suspend the soundproofing curtain panels. The soundproofing blankets material is a composite material bonding mass loaded vinyl with an acoustical absorber and faced with a vinyl diamond stitched facing.

Using our Soundproofing Acoustic Blankets to construct a 4-sided noise control solution will significantly reduce sound. The noise reduction to be expected is a range of 20 to 40 decibels. The better the construction, weight of blankets and amount of soundproofing acoustic blankets used (the surface area) all factor into your sound reduction numbers. Ensuring all corners and edges are tight and that there are no gaps is a major factor. The size of the blankets in which the amount of surface area that is available to dissipate and contain the noise is the other major factor.

Reducing noise by 20 to 40 decibels with this cost-effective, durable material is one of the best ways to solve noise control issues in commercial, facility & industrial markets.

Chiller Noise Control

Common noisy equipment such as Vacuums, blowers, vacuum pumps, stamping presses, air handling units and many others have been successfully treated with the below listed options. To soundproof outdoor chiller:

Sound Curtains

Sound curtains or sound blankets are an effective means of noise reduction and sound proofing of process machinery, pumps, Vacuums, chillers in a facility that requires noise control and access to the equipment.  Sound curtains are a proven solution for industrial noise control. Sound Curtains offer maximum sound control and noise reduction using a combination of sound absorption and noise barrier material.

Sound Blankets or Acoustic Blankets are used in many industrial, commercial and OEM noise control applications. The system can accommodate ventilation and access while maintaining high noise control. Curtains are easy to install and can be moved for use in another location to accommodate machine or equipment relocation.

Sound Enclosures

Sound Enclosures offer the highest level of sound control and noise reduction utilizing modular steel panels with various constructions to meet your equipment access, ventilation, and usable floor space needs.  Manufactured to your specifications and the best engineered solution for your industrial noise control process or equipment.

Noise Control enclosures

Steel and aluminum noise control enclosures of all kinds provide at least 10 dB(A) of attenuation for generator sets that must be located outdoors. In many cases, when combined with an effective exhaust silencer, this amount of attenuation

When locating generator sets outdoors, the use of enclosures – particularly sound-attenuating enclosures – combines all of these strategies into a convenient package that provides weather protection as well as sound attenuation.

Sound Attenuation is needed to meet local noise ordinances or reduce impact on employees or neighbors, special sound-attenuating enclosures must be employed.

Special sound-attenuating noise control enclosures combine both barrier and absorption noise control strategies to contain generator Noise. Stell Enclosure provide 2-3 dB(A) better attenuation.

Reducing noise by 20 to 40 decibels with this cost-effective, durable material is one of the best ways to solve noise control issues in commercial, facility & industrial markets.

Noise Control Enclosure Installation Instructions:
  • Floor Mounted Acoustic Soundproofing Blanket Enclosure
  • Mark and label the area where the enclosure will mount.
  • Locate the Floor Mounted Base Hardware, do not attach to the floor yet.
  • Slide roller tracks into track connectors on floor by squeezing ends of roller track together while sliding into connectors.
  • Lift this track up and slip the track connectors on to top of floor columns.
  • Line up the existing holes or drill holes (using a 2/16 inch hex key) as needed into the track for the screws to lock into the holes thru the track connectors.
  • Lift the panels up to the track. You can use plastic ties to attach the panels to the track through grommetted holes (already installed by All Noise Control) in each panel. Review the customer supplied drawings for the appropriate panel placement. Make sure you know which direction to place the panels, be sure the Velcro seals are going to mate correctly.
  • Apply and tighten all screws in connectors. Adjust hardware as needed for the panels to fit.
  • Mount base to the floor.
  • Connect panels with supplied vertically attached Velcro.
Strategies for reducing generator, pump and Vacuums set noise

Using our Noise Control Blankets to construct a 4-sided noise control solution will significantly reduce sound. The noise reduction to be expected is a range of 20 to 40 decibels. The better the construction, weight of blankets and amount of soundproofing acoustic blankets used (the surface area) all factor into your sound reduction numbers. Ensuring all corners and edges are tight and that there are no gaps is a major factor. The size of the soundproofing blankets in which the amount of surface area that is available to dissipate and contain the noise is the other major factor.

Regardless of the type of generator set that needs sound attenuation, there are basically seven strategies for reducing generator set noise:

  • reduce the sound level of the source;
  • acoustic barriers;
  • acoustic insulation;
  • isolation mounts;
  • cooling air attenuation;
  • exhaust silencers;
  • efforts to maximize the distance between the generator set and the property line (or people).
Noise Control barriers

Rigid materials with significant mass and stiffness reduce the transmission of sound. Examples include sheet steel typical of enclosures, and concrete or sand filled block walls or solid concrete walls typical of indoor generator room installations. It is also important to eliminate sound paths through cracks in doors or walls, or through access points for exhaust, fuel or electrical wiring. Our Noise Control Blankets come standard with grommets across top, mating Velcro along the vertical edges and corner seals.

Acoustic insulation

Sound-absorbing materials are available for lining air ducts and covering walls and ceilings. Directing noise at a wall covered in sound-absorbing material can be very effective. Selectmaterials that are resistant to oil and other engine contaminants. Fiberglass or foam may be suitable, based on factors such as cost, availability, density, flame retardance, resistance to abrasion, aesthetics and cleanability.

Isolation mounts

Vibrating equipment creates sound pressure waves (noise) in the surrounding air. Anything that is physically connected to a generator set can cause vibrations to be transmitted to thebuilding structure. These connection points include skid anchors, radiator discharge air ducts, exhaust piping,coolant piping, fuel lines and wiring conduit. Fitting these connections with flexible joints effectively reduces noise transmission. Mounting a generator set on spring-type vibration isolators effectively reduces the vibration and noise that are transmitted through the floor.
