Why We Need Acoustical Enclosure Buildings
In this day and age, large machinery and heavy equipment have become an essential part of the industrial workplace and our everyday life. The benefits of such equipment to the industrial world are certainly undeniable. However, machinery is also the main cause of workplace noise, which constitutes a major disturbance for both employees and the surrounding environment. To combat this problem, ITUS Global offers Acoustical Enclosure Buildings with custom acoustical treatment to fit any noise attenuation need. Such acoustical enclosures maximize employer productivity and safety by reducing harmful noise, and help ensure adherence to various environmental and workplace environments (e.g. OSHA).
Here’s why you need this technology
Estimating excessive noise levels
Noise is everywhere, but how loud does it need to be to cause harm? While people know that loud noise can be uncomfortable, many don’t know how long they can withstand it before it becomes harmful. CDC provides some guidelines that help assess excessive noise levels as follows:
Noise may be a problem in your workplace if you hear ringing or humming in your ears when you leave work, have to shout in order to be heard by a coworker, or experience temporary hearing loss. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) Sound Level Meter App is one tool available to the public to download on mobile iOS devices that measures sound levels in the workplace and provides noise exposure parameters to help reduce occupational noise-induced hearing loss.
The range of solutions to the excessive noise differs by industry, and ranges from noise attenuation walls to providing employees with personal hearing protection. ITUS Global provides optimal solutions to industries – from refineries and pipelines to hospitals and cruise ships – wherever large equipment such as power generators and compressors are an inevitable part of operations. The level of required level of noise attenuation can also differ by industry, but the following are the most often encountered requirements:
Our team designs and manufactures custom Acoustical Enclosure Buildings to meet any noise attenuation requirements. Utilizing applicable acoustical treatment such as silencers, mufflers, gravity dampers, our buildings will effectively achieve any required noise reduction level.
