Soundproofing

Soundproofing is any means of reducing the sound pressure with respect to a specified sound source and receptor. There are several basic approaches to reducing sound: increasing the distance between source and receiver, using noise barriers to block or absorb the energy of the sound waves, using damping structures such as sound baffles, or using active anti-noise sound generators.

Noise Control

The term “noise control” refers to both active and passive methods of mitigating unwanted sound in the environment. There are a number of reasons why noise control is an important consideration in both business and private settings, including personal well-being, environmental concerns and legislative issues. However, before proper noise control solutions can be implemented, it is first necessary to determine the source and the underlying causes behind its existence. Once this has been determined, it is then possible to establish an appropriate means of circumventing further problems.

Soundproofing, Noise Control, Noise Reduction

Read a little about what the terms mean or dive rightinto our acoustic products on the right. So what does it all mean? All soundproofing and noise control terms cover a lot of ground in the acoustics and noise control industry. All our products are broken into noise barrier materials – http://www.allnoisecontrol.com/SoundBarriers.cfm and noise absorption materials – http://www.allnoisecontrol.com/NoiseAbsorption.cfm. There are 2 main ways to deal with sound problems.

Noise Control

Noise control is an active or passive means of reducing sound emissions, often incentivised by personal comfort, environmental considerations or legal compliance. Practical and efficient noise control is wholly reliant on an accurate diagnosis of what is causing the noise, which first involves finding the source of noise. Once the source of noise has been found, the focus is reducing the noise at source by engineering means.
