Reduce the decibel level to within government health and safety guidelines
NoiseKiller were asked to help Quick Fit Scaffold Towers of Shipley to investigate the noise produced by machines used to cut tubular steel to length. As the machines were in close proximity to other operatives the noise in the general working area was unacceptable to the management.
The first part of the project meant reducing the noise of the machine and its metal casing as close to the source of the noise as possible to reduce the decibel level released into the atmosphere. This was achieved by using a combination of Noisekiller Lead Sandwich acoustic sheets, NoiseKiller Vibrasorb acoustic sheets and NoiseKiller anti vibration Barrier Mat. Once each of the machines had been sound proofed further Noisekiller Egg Box acoustic foam was placed around the walls of the room and close to the machines to absorb the airborne sounds.
This solution meant that Quick Fit reduced the decibel level to within government health and safety guidelines.
