Welding and grinding noise
Welding and grinding operations are one of the most intense noise sources in industrial working environments. Prolonged exposure to high noise concentrations can damage ear drums and cause noise-related deafness.
Besides personal suffering, this often means long term absences from work through illness or high costs as a result of permanent disability. In less serious cases, too much noise is often the cause of loss of concentration and consequently loss of quality and lower production volumes.
Too much noise also hinders communication on the shop floor which leads to mistakes and increased safety risks. Studies have shown that noise pollution in training rooms leads to gaps in knowledge and even to educational errors.
The government has established maximum permissible noise level standards. The maximum noise level to which employees are exposed on the shop floor, should be limited to the legal maximum noise level.
For the design and construction of low noise training areas, Flexshield offers a complete system of Sonic Insulating Partitions. These partitions offer a significant improvement to working and ergonomic conditions in the work place.
Sonic Insulating Partitioning Systems can be built into any design combination. The modular system can be easily and quickly assembled (and is therefore cost-reducing), moved, expanded or changed into other configurations.
Each element consists of perforated plates and a fire resistant Acoustic Core. Out of these components it is easy to construct complete acoustic welding bays, in which exhaust arms and other devices can be mounted. Flexshield is able to help design a complete layout of Welding Bays and provide a one package solution including Welding Bay dividing walls, Welding Screens, Work Benches, Extraction, Power, Lighting, Gas Supply and even Welders.
Welding Bays are supplied in kit form, but installation services are also provided by Flexshield. Being a modular type system, Flexshield Welding Bays offer flexibility in the event of re-arrangement or shift.
TAFEs, colleges, schools, training centres and engineering workshops have benefited significantly from Flexshield's Acoustic Welding Bays.
Flexshield has NATA accredited test results for Acoustic Welding Bays and have test results available for their Welding Screens. This ensures that Schools and Training Centres can relax in the knowledge that their staff and students are safe.
