Specialist Acoustic Blankets installed to screen noisy dust extraction system
Acoustic Screen Lancashire
We were contacted by a large manufacturer based in Darwen, Lancashire after they received several noise complaints from local residents. Our client first engaged NoiseAir to undertake a noise assessment to confirm noise breakout from the factory, specifically to the dust extraction system which is located on the outside of the building.
The noise assessment was carried out using BS 4142 guidelines, which is used to assess the impact of industrial and commercial sound. After completing the assessment, which confirmed excessive noise levels, we were then able to recommend mitigation measures to acoustically treat the noise source.
As it was not practical in this instance to fully enclose the dust extraction system with a full acoustic enclosure, we offered a partial acoustic screen, using our specialist, lab tested, Acoustic Blanket system. Our modular Acoustic Blankets are a versatile alternative to the more traditional steel construction and with an added composite layer offers added mass and a high degree of noise attenuation.
