Sound Solutions - Industrial Factory

Sound Solutions – Industrial Factory

Our specialist solutions provide high noise reduction at considerably lower cost than other, more common types of solution. Our industrial sound solutions are suitable for reducing noise at work in all types of factory, industry and commercial company, as well as for suppressing noise nuisance affecting local residents.

The way we achieve high noise reduction at low cost is by identifying the root cause of sound problems. Then we use advanced technology and engineering solutions to suppress the noise at source. These high performance sound solutions are not widely available from other companies.

We have over 35 years’ experience of applying our industrial sound solutions to all types of manufacturing machine and fan to reduce workers’ noise exposures. Our solutions have also been highly successful when suppressing sound that is causing nuisance to residents living near noisy factories, fans. etc. We have carried out many noise nuisance projects where our solutions made the annoying noise inaudible at residential properties after other companies tried using common industrial sound solutions that didn’t achieve sufficient noise reduction.

Our specialist sound solutions have been applied to all types of industrial company including whisky distillery firms, such as the one where the above photo of copper stills was taken. We have also helped many non-industrial, commercial companies that were causing noise nuisance to local residents. Fans are the most common cause of noise nuisance and we have successfully suppressed the sound from all types of extractor fan and dust collector system.

See below for more details of our industrial sound solutions for reducing noise at work and for solving noise nuisance problems. To find out how we can help you reduce machine, fan or factory noise contact us or phone us on 01727 864667.

Sound Solutions in the Workplace

Our industrial sound solutions have been highly successful in reducing noise at work and helping companies to comply with the Control of Noise at Work regulations. When applied to machines in factories to reduce workers’ noise exposures, their major benefits include:

  • low cost (much lower cost than common sound solutions)
  • unrestricted machine access (in contrast, common industrial sound solutions such as hoods and acoustic enclosures restrict access and visibility making it more difficult to operate machines – this can reduce the production rate)
  • improved machine performance. By suppressing the noise generating mechanism at source, our specialist sound solutions can sometimes improve the performance of the machine / fan, or reduce operating costs as well as reducing the noise.

The benefits of our sound solutions are so large that they have proved highly popular and successful. Consequently, they have been applied to numerous types of machine and fan throughout industry and in many of the largest and most well-known manufacturing, food and pharmaceutical companies in the UK (and for medium sized and less well-known companies). There are more details on solutions to control noise at work.

Sound Solutions for Nuisance affecting Residents

We have solved many noise nuisance problems where residents were complaining about sound from fans, air conditioners, chillers or other equipment at a nearby industrial factory or other commercial building. Fans are a very common cause of noise nuisance. Our specialist fan sound solutions are highly effective and usually provide higher noise reduction than other types of solution available from other sound reduction companies. We have carried out numerous projects where we have successfully resolved nuisance problems after other companies installed common solutions that failed to provide sufficient noise reduction. Our specialist sound solutions are normally so effective that they make the annoying sound inaudible at residents’ houses. It is very common for companies to spend thousands of pounds on machine or fan sound solutions that do not achieve enough reduction to satisfy the complainants. Had they chosen our sound solution from the outset, these companies could have saved the thousands of pounds they spent on these less effective noise reduction methods.

Fans often generate a low frequency drone or hum, and this is a very common cause of noise nuisance. Commonly available types of solution usually provide little noise reduction at a low frequency, which is one main reason why they often fail to prevent further noise nuisance complaints. Our fan sound solutions suppress the fan drone / hum at source, which makes them highly effective in suppressing low frequency fan drones – usually making them inaudible at the nearest house to the factory / fan. There are many examples of projects where we have successfully resolved nuisance complaints caused by industrial fans, cyclones, dust collectors, extractors, blowers, etc. on solution to reduce fan noise.

At the start of a project, the first step that our experts carry out is to accurately identify the main noise sources and noise generating mechanisms. To do this, we rely heavily on our considerable experience and expertise coupled with very sophisticated sound measurement and analysis equipment. Once our experts have identified the exact cause of the noise, we provide a sound solution that suppresses the noise at source. This is one way in which we achieve exceptionally high noise reductions. Another way is to use sound solutions that are based on advanced technology.
