Sound Control Walls
- Have you ever felt a throbbing headache after a long day of talking to people?
- Do you sometimes experience difficulty sleeping after a being surrounded by loud noise?
- Have you ever felt overwhelmed by the mundane noises in your office such as keyboards, mouses clicking, and the constant hum of conversation?
If you have, then relax, because you are not alone! According to the World Health Organization, around 40% of the population in European countries are exposed to road traffic noises at levels greater than 55 dBA. Recommendations for a restful night of sleep and proper learning in the classroom are 30 dBA and 35 dBA, respectively. Sound levels during your daily routine should only be about 40 dBA and yet exposure is often over 15 dBA more! This can have a compounded deteriorating effect on our health as we age.
Noise levels are becoming an increasing hazard to public health and a nuisance that hampers one’s mental peace and daily activities. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that there are guidelines about how to deal with noise. It also explains the high number of internet searches for products such as noise blocking partitions and sound proof walls.
eNoise Control helps clients work towards achieving a peaceful environment with minimal interference from noise. One of the ways we do this is with our sound barrier wall product. It is an engineered wall with a modular panel system designed to reduce outdoor noise. It typically works by blocking outdoor noise from machines, vehicles, and equipment used in industrial or office buildings. Barrier walls are a safe, durable, and cost-effective means of noise protection.
Sound barrier walls are constructed with materials that are resistant to harmful outdoor environments. They block noise by absorbing it and causing sound compression. These characteristics make it ideal for commercial or industrial applications such as:
- Rooftop HVAC equipment
- Outdoor cooling towers
- Dust collectors
With traffic being one of the major contributors of noise pollution, it comes as no surprise that vehicles, especially heavy trucks and trains, contribute to high noise levels. Sound control walls and barriers are effective in ports or transport areas where heavy trucks load and unload.
eNoise Control also provides Acoustic Consultation Services for clients to gauge the noise levels at any outdoor site and provides recommendations regarding whether a noise barrier wall would be effective in controlling the noise levels.
