In modern production facilities, noise control is more of a concern now than ever before. As OSHA, state, and local regulations become stricter, manufacturers must modify their facilities to meet these requirements. The three most
fundamental approaches to noise control is to reduce the noise at the source, along the path of propagation, or at the receiver. In most cases of industrial noise control, modifying the path of propagation is the only viable solution. This can
be achieved by the scientific placement of an acoustic barrier directly between the noise source and the receiver which modifies the path of the noise. Much the same as nature provides protection from the wind and heat of the sun with trees
and mountains, barriers properly placed cast "acoustic shadows."
The Aeroacoustic Corp. offers a line of acoustic panels for construction of barriers to solve your noise problems. The standard model 3P and 4P Silentroom® acoustic panels for normal temperature applications are of tongue and groove construction for easy assembly and disassembly. Barriers come in a wide selection of shapes; single shielding walls, multiple walls, wall-ceiling combinations. Depending upon the size of the barrier and the required loading , the barrier can either be self-supporting or be attached to a steel structure. The most common application is a free-standing straight wall or "L" shaped. There is no limitation to the size or configuration of the enclosure. Each barrier is custom designed to the specific requirements of the application. Barriers can easily be blended into the surrounding decor and be made esthetically pleasing.
