Excessive noise is one of the most common workplace hazards in industrial facilities. Prolonged exposure to noise in manufacturing industries can result in compromised verbal communication, fatigue, lower productivity and work-related hearing loss. Manufacturing areas are not the only places where noise can be hazardous and counterproductive.
Offices that share walls with factories or are subjected to outside noise from highways or airports face similar noise problems. In such environments, uncontrolled sound can interfere with the intended purpose of the space, resulting in hampered interpersonal communication, headaches and other problems.
We Manufacture flexible and rigid Noise enclosure systems. Sound Curtains or Acoustic Blankets are flexible and can either be used independently or as part of an enclosure system. Custom-configured noide control enclosures are effective and economical method of noise reduction. Options include rooftop panels, grommets, view windows, sliding hinged and overhead doors, silencers, exhaust fans and more.
Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC) is the average of the absorption coefficients at the most common frequencies (250, 500, 1000 and 2000 Hz.) The NRC is often used to compare the acoustical performance of various materials. Sound Transmission Class (STC) is a measurement of how much noise is stopped by a barrier or enclosure. It is an approximation of how much noise, in decibels, will be stopped by the material, assuming an airtight seal around the noise source. Sabin is a unit of sound absorption based on one square foot of material. Baffles are frequently described as providing x number of sabins of absorption based on the size of the baffle tested, through the standard range of frequencies (125-4000 Hz.).
Excessive noise in industrial and manufacturing settings not only reduces productivity, it puts workers’ health at risk, exposure to loud noise causes stress and fatigue that can lead to workplace injuries, as well as hearing loss. Reducing noise levels in commercial offices can be achieved by utilizing a variety of materials. Wall and ceiling mounted acoustic panels, hanging baffles and high performance ceiling tiles are commonly utilized to improve speech intelligibility and sound quality within commercial office environments. Call centers, conference rooms and open floor plan office settings require different noise absorption surfaces to achieve acceptable sound levels.
