Understanding industrial noise control and industrial soundproofing strategies is the first step in reducing noise levels in the workplace.
Industrial noise can damage hearing. Over 22 million workers in the United States are exposed to excessive noise levels in the workplace. In order to reduce occupational noise-induced hearing loss, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) recommends that workers should not be exposed to noise levels that exceed 85 dB’s in a 8 hour workday. To create a more healthful workplace, NIOSH recommends the use of soundproofing materials to reduce noise levels.
Industrial noise control and industrial soundproofing strategies can sometimes be complex, due to the presence of many noise sources: propagation through air (Air-Borne Noise), propagation through facility construction (Structural-Borne Noise), and (Reverberant Noise) from reflective surfaces such as concrete floors, walls, ceilings and machinery surfaces. As a result Fabrication, Manufacturing, Chemical, Textiles, Aircraft & Aviation, Oil & Gas, Construction, Municipalities, Energy, and Water Treatment sites & facilities all produce excessive noise to some degree and would benefit from the introduction of noise control and/or soundproofing materials.
In industrial settings problematic noise sources such as Chillers, Industrial Gas Jets, Ventilator and Exhaust Fans, Compressors, Electric Motors, Woodworking Machines, Pneumatic Tools, Air Handlers, Pump Stations, and Generators can all produce excessive noise levels. We recommend assessing the noise source, then introducing soundproofing and/or acoustic absorption materials as a noise abatement strategy.
