24/06/2011 - A noise problem begins with the source of the noise, as an example a piece of equipment or machinery.
This sound is transmitted along a path and arrives at the receiver. The noise will be considered to be a problem when it is high enough to impede conversation, cause discomfort, cause physical damage or simply be perceived as an overall nuisance.
Noise mitigation can be achieved by one, or a combination of one or more of the following:
Undertake noise control at the source
This is considered to be the primary and most acceptable form of sound reduction and wherever possible noise abatement steps should be taken at the source of the noise.
Control the noise pollution in its transmission path
Using this method, a noise barrier is installed to interrupt the transmission of sound, and thus separate the noise source from the noise receiver.
Protection of the recipient from the noise
This method of noise control is the least preferable, and should always be used as a last resort, or as an additional aid to the overall sound reduction solution.
At Flexshield, we specialize in noise mitigation - we have years of experience in noise control. Using industry standard techniques we are able to analyse noise source and confidently recommend appropriate noise control products which when installed and operating, will produce positive results in noise pollution in workplaces, training locations, building sites, external plant and machinery locations.
Our range of solutions include noise barriers such as attenuators and splitters, totally enclosed acoustic rooms, soundproofing doors, acoustic curtains, sound insulating foams and much more.
