Loud noises are not just distracting or uncomfortable for workers—they pose serious safety risks that lead to hearing loss. Reducing noise with acoustic enclosure treatments is an important element in creating a healthy work environment and facilitating employee productivity. These enclosures reliably reduce, minimize, or eliminate noise from specific sources in countless industrial environments.
Benefits of Acoustic Enclosures for Noise Reduction
Industrial machinery often exceeds allowable noise levels, but acoustic enclosures used in industrial environments facilitate noise reduction in compliance with federal, state, and local statutory limits. Noise enclosure treatments provide a number of benefits, including:
- Measurable noise reduction, from 15dB(A) to 50dB(A)
- Noise reduction for air inlet drive on combustion engines
- Acoustic level reduction of combustion engine exhaust removal
- Availability for indoor or outdoor applications
Applications for Acoustic Enclosures
Acoustic enclosures are present in a variety of facilities across a broad range of industries, applying noise reduction or elimination solutions to common noise pollution issues. Some examples include:
Outdoor Generator Enclosures
Outdoor generator enclosures reduce damaging frequencies from continuous engine noise. Though many portable generators integrate adequate levels of sound reduction, most industrial generators produce noise levels well in excess of OSHA’s permissible exposure limit (PEL). OSHA currently allows 90dB over a period of eight hours and only two hours of exposure to 100dB.
While transformers may not generate loud or intense noise, they do produce noise at a continuously damaging frequency. Transformer enclosures minimize the continuous humming and high-frequency noises commonly associated with this equipment.
