Midlands Noise Reduction

Noise Reduction in the Midlands

We provide machine and fan noise reduction to companies in the Midlands as well as throughout the UK. Our solutions are very popular for reducing noise at work and noise nuisance affecting residents who live near factories. We have provided industrial noise control solutions to many Midlands companies for over 35 years.

The above photograph shows a company that wanted to open a new depot in the South West of the UK. However, the building they wanted to move into at the new depot was very close to houses and the company was concerned that their noisy activities such as hammering, grinding and dragging product around the factory by fork lift truck would generate noise nuisance complaints from the neighbours in the adjacent houses.

A Midlands noise consultant of ours went to the current depot and carried out a noise survey and assessment of the company’s loudest activities. The noise consultant then went to the building proposed in the South West depot and carried out sound insulation tests on the building. All this information was then used to predict and calculate the noise at the nearest houses. Our noise consultant found that noise nuisance was likely, so he designed a noise control solution for the building to reduce the sound transmitted to the houses. A high noise reduction was needed.

The noise consultant devised high performance sound insulation / soundproofing solutions for the roof, walls, doors and windows of the building to reduce the sound to an acceptable level at the houses. In addition, he recommended that the noisiest activities such as sledge hammering were located on the opposite side of the building to the houses. The noise consultant also recommended noise reduction measures to reduce the sound transmitted to houses from fork lift truck manoeuvring and lorry loading activities in the yard outside the factory.

The acoustic solution and soundproofing for the building was highly successful.  No noise complaints have been received even though the houses are very close to the factory.

There are more details and examples of our high performance sound insulation projects on industrial building soundproofing. These examples illustrate that our solutions have been highly successful on even the most difficult problems where extremely high sound reductions were needed.

There is also an example on acoustic solution for industrial building where our sound insulation solution provided an extremely high noise reduction of 30 – 32 dBA for a metal clad building.

The specialist types of solution provided by our noise reduction company to control industrial noise have benefited many companies in the Midlands and the rest of the UK, often saving them several thousands of pounds. This is because our specialist types of sound reduction solution for industry have a very low installation cost, so the overall cost is usually considerably lower than common types of noise control solution such as acoustic enclosures and installing acoustic materials onto the room ceiling / walls.

Our industrial noise solutions also avoid access restrictions, making it easier for workers to operate and maintain machines. This contrasts with common industrial sound control solutions such as acoustic enclosures, covers and hoods, which all restrict access making it more difficult to operate and see the machines.

Our solutions have been applied to many types of industrial machine.  We have also provided fan noise reduction solutions to many Midlands companies. Our specialist types of fan noise control solution usually provide much higher sound reduction than common solutions. So we have solved many noise nuisance problems after common noise mitigation methods were tried but were unable to provide sufficient sound reduction. Consequently, extractor fan noise reduction is a very popular service that we supply to companies in the Midlands and throughout the UK.

There is an example of our fan noise reduction solutions for a Midlands company on reduce extractor fan noise.  Our specialist fan noise control solution was very successful and the company was delighted with the results. The residents were delighted too because our solution made the fan inaudible!

The benefits of low cost and avoiding access restrictions has made our specialist industrial noise mitigation solutions very popular. As a result our noise control company has supplied solutions for many companies in the Midlands and throughout the UK, to reduce workers’ noise exposures and also to solve noise nuisance problems. We have successfully reduced the noise from all types of industrial machine.

We also provide a full range of noise consultant services to Midlands companies, including sound surveys, noise assessments and prediction of noise in addition to recommending noise mitigation methods.
