This ensures that noise problems are solved fully and at minimum cost. Our company provides a range of professional services for industrial noise control problems, environmental and planning noise as well as sound within most types of building.
As well as providing noise solutions, a key part of our work is carrying out surveys to investigate noise problems and diagnostic noise and vibration measurements to determine the major noise sources. We use highly sophisticated diagnostic equipment. Coupled with our considerable experience and technical expertise, this means we can diagnose noise sources very accurately. Below are details of our noise consultant services for industrial and building noise:-
Industrial noise control is an area where our professional noise consultant company can save customers a considerable amount of money - often thousands of pounds. These large cost savings are achieved using a range of high technology and “engineering” noise solutions that have low installation cost. These are not available from other companies.
We can suppress noise on all types of industrial machine, either to reduce workers' noise exposures or to solve noise nuisance problems.
One of our most popular services is as fan noise consultants to reduce the sound from industrial extraction systems and fans. Our help is often sought when nearby residents complain about the noise from a fan, blower, factory extraction system, etc. Our specialist fan solutions use advanced technology to provide much higher noise reduction than other types of solution. The noise reduction is so high that we have solved many noise nuisance problems after other methods have been tried by other companies, but failed to provide enough sound reduction to stop the complaints.
There are many examples of this on reduce industrial extractor fan noise. Our fan noise consultant company has helped solve numerous problems involving extractor fan noise reduction and control.
The unusual combination of solutions, experience and technical expertise that we offer has made our noise reduction services very popular, as shown by the following comments.
'A very professional service. Excellent.'
'Whereas other noise reduction companies were all proposing high cost schemes, your acoustic consultant came up with a low cost, practical solution.'

Our noise consultancy company has over 35 years' experience of noise reduction, measurement, prediction and providing sound advice.

Sometimes, we recommend noise control products that are available off the shelf. As independent sound consultants, we are not confined to any particular company's range of products. So we are able to choose the best product available, which provides the noise reduction needed at the lowest cost. Sometimes, we purpose-design noise control solutions using our high level of technical / engineering expertise and knowledge. We do this where it can provide large savings on the cost of noise control, or where a much higher noise reduction is needed than can be achieved by common noise control solutions (sometimes it achieves both at the same time!).
A purpose-designed solution can also provide operational benefits in some cases. For example much lower flow resistance in the case of an extractor fan, whereas many common types of silencer used in industry impose a high flow resistance, which can impair fan performance substantially.
Background information on the various options available for reducing industrial noise, together with their pros and cons, are given in our 6 ways to reduce workplace noise guide.
For sound in buildings, we offer acoustic, sound insulation and other noise reduction solutions and surveys. Our acoustic consultant company can help with soundproofing buildings or with acoustic panels to reduce reflected noise within rooms, so reducing the echo, lowering sound levels and making communication much easier. Our acoustic consultant service has helped to control noise in many types of school, office, factory, control room, training room and building. For example, we have helped Cheam independent, private school in Newbury, Berkshire (Berks), UK, who were looking for an acoustic consultant to reduce the level of reflected noise in their school dance and drama studio. Our sound consultants have also helped Elstree independent school (also in Newbury, Berkshire) to suppress the very high levels of reflected (reverberant) noise within their school dining room. We have also helped Dolby to reduce echo and reflected noise in several of their offices and recording studios.
Because we are independent of all suppliers of acoustic and noise reduction products, we are free to select the most suitable and cost-effective noise control product available on the whole market. This means that we can give our customers access to a much wider range of products than some other companies, who supply only a limited range of noise reduction products. Also, whereas the income and profits of acoustic material and product suppliers are directly linked to the quantity that they supply, ours are not. We specify the minimum extent of treatment needed.
So, by being an independent company, we can often save our customers money on acoustic and noise reduction solutions. In fact, we pride ourselves on saving money for our customers - this is a major aim of our sound consultant company. In some cases, we can also provide a higher noise reduction than achieved by common types of noise control solution.
As an independent acoustic consultant company, we aim to find the optimum acoustic solution in terms of both performance and cost. In practice, this means finding the optimum treatment in terms of the type of acoustic material, panel or product and the area and location to be treated, all of which affect both acoustic performance and cost. We pride ourselves on providing high quality and effective acoustic solutions at reasonable cost.
