Extraction system installation, Birmingham
NoiseAir was commissioned by a large auto-manufacturing company based in Birmingham, for the supply and installation of a number of large extraction fans to their factory premises. One of the main concerns of the client was balancing the requirement for appropriate ventilation, without creating undue noise disturbance to nearby residents. Most ventilation systems will generate a certain amount of noise, so considerations must be made with regard not only nearby residents, but also to the workforce within the factory (in order to comply with Noise at Work regulations). In this case, the close proximity of nearby residents resulted in installation of specialist attenuators within the ventilation system, in order to minimise noise nuisance and comply with local Environmental Health Guidelines.
