Industrial noise is all around us. From the corner bakery to the large factory down the street, and even the antique woodworking shop you like to frequent. This noise, when it exceeds 85 decibels, becomes harmful to the people and the environment around it if left un-attenuated.
Some experts, like those at the National Institute of Health1, feel that science and research have proven that some people die or become seriously ill when subjected to noise pollution in everyday life.
Keeping these excessive sound levels down is the ideal solution. Retrofitting of equipment can be cumbersome and expensive. Another more practical option is the use of a noise barrier wall.
Traditional noise barrier materials have included concrete which is very dense and heavy. And more importantly, it a sound-reflective substance. Absorptive noise barriers like those created by our company offer a better mitigation option, and are helping change the way we protect ourselves from sound in our daily lives.
Industrial Noise Barrier Basics
Concrete noise barriers are simply concrete and rebar with supporting posts. These walls are solid, heavy, and immobile. Absorptive noise barrier walls are made with several layers to break down, diffuse and block the sound waves as they pass into the barrier, reducing it to practically nothing on the other side.
Sound Wall Panels Eliminate Noise Rather Than Reflect
The technology in the sound wall construction is what helps eliminate the noise. Solid walls just bounce sound around. Porous walls absorb the sound whereby the sound waves lose effectiveness before exiting.
Absorptive noise barriers used in outdoor applications protect residential areas without letting harmful noise into the environment.
Noise Barrier Walls In Industrial Capacities
Generators are a common piece of equipment for industrial companies like hospitals, schools, refrigerated food packagers, warehouses, car washes, and any other businesses that must stay operational for any length. Using a sound absorbing wall around generation equipment is a step in helping the environment, the workers, and the people who live near the business.
The adaptability of the absorptive noise barrier systems is one of the biggest selling features. The products are also lightweight, will not rust, easy to assemble, ready to customize, and easy to retrofit.
