Industrial buildings and workshops have special requirements for noise protection. The work noise arising there can, on the one hand, lead to decreased productivity and increased employee illness, and on the other hand, become a serious disturbance for the whole environment. aixFOAM offers expedient solutions for industrial soundproofing, echo insulation, industrial building acoustics, industry noise control and other areas.

As we all know, industrial halls don’t always have the best acoustics and hall construction and noise protection don’t always go hand in hand. Since both noisy machines and workspaces abound in industrial buildings and workshops, on-the-job soundproofing plays a substantial role. The requirements for protecting employees from noise production are more exactly specified in the Noise and Vibration Regulation or workplace ordinance for noise. Therefore, workshop noise reduction, industrial sound dampening and industrial noise protection in production buildings and furnishing workshops that follow the conditions in the workplace ordinance for noise should be specifically planned during construction. If noise control in an existing workshop is inadequate, it may be incorporated later; insulating a steel building retrospectively, for example.

Noise control in buildings

Reverberation and sound pressure levels are the main disturbing factors in workshops and industrial buildings. A steel hall usually doen’t have good acoustic properties. Reverberation results from sound reflecting off hard surfaces. At the same time, the overlapping of sound waves causes a constant noise level. The sound pressure level describes the strength of the sound. The larger it is, the longer it lasts, until the sound waves fade away. Therefore, noise control in industrial buildings chiefly entails reducing the sound pressure level and shortening reverberation times with suitable methods. Noise can be stabilized beneath limit values, thus improving both interior and exterior noise control, by using the various soundproofing solutions from aixFOAM that are available for industrial buildings as insulation.

Soundproofing in building construction is difficult, due to the large dimensions involved. An alternative can be found in sound absorbing material for industrial use. There are generally two ways to use them. On the one hand, the sources of noise themselves can be acoustically insulated, so that the noise does not spread out within the whole building; and, on the other hand, a complete industrial hall insulation, production hall dampening and sound insulation of workshops, industrial buildings, or production buildings can take place via aixFOAM sound absorbers. These absorb the sound waves created during production noise, thus prohibiting their unchecked dispersion and reflexion.

Many workshops and production buildings are near residential areas. Soundproofing workplaces against exiting noise is also essential, to avoid disturbing the residents. aixFOAM absorber pads can help limit the noise to the permitted amount. Absorber pads are either stuck directly on a ceiling or wall via a self-adhesive layer, or attractively attached using hanging installation cartridges of anodised aluminium. If the ceilings are high, hanging installation cartridges are suspended from the ceiling directly over the respective machines or equipment, since absorbers would be too far from the acoustic source to work optimally. In this way, the distance to the sound source is shortened and the sound dispersion within the room noticeably reduced, thereby substantially improving the noise protection of the industrial building.

Vertically hung aixFOAM sound absorbers are especially well-suited to rented facilities, in which gluing would be undesirable. In this case, the installation system hangs freely from the ceiling via tension cables. Thus, floor stands and stand constructions are unnecessary. This not only saves space, it avoids accidents caused by tripping over obstacles on the floor.

Sound in industrial buildings can also be insulated by using aixFOAM acoustic foam MH. This is fire resistant, although not waterproof. It will not ignite even if openly exposed to flame, thereby facilitating safe industrial hall soundproofing and protection from noise, according to the Labour Protection Act, even in premises with high requirements for fire protection.

Whoever would like to set up a workshop must also provide for appropriate sound insulation. Smaller machines than those in industrial buildings are usually used here, but they are often closer to residential areas. In many cases, workshops are located directly beside or between houses. Sound-reducing aixFOAM panels can be used in various devices and machines to quiet noise, thereby lessening disturbing external sounds as well as protecting employees from noise according to the Health and Safety at Work Act. With their high efficiency, dirt resistance and durability, they offer an ideal solution for soundproofing the workshop.
