Sound insulation for industrial buildings, factories and workshops
What are the challenges for sound insulation in industrial buildings and workshops?
Sound insulation in industrial buildings, factories and workshops has two objectives: to reduce noise for employees in the factory – also with regard to the applicable noise protection directive and workshop directives – and soundproofing for the outside. This should prevent noise becoming a disturbing factor for neighbours and residents.
Many noise sources and long reverberation times
Soundproofing for large factories and workshops is challenging because mostly there are several noisy machines, tools or vehicles in them at the same time. Overall these devices and plant generate noise and force up the sound level uncomfortably. But it is not only the numerous sound sources in factories or workshops that influence the selection of the right sound insulation elements, but also the structural features of the building. Sound-reflecting surfaces, e.g. concrete, stone or metal, along with high ceilings and wide rooms, cause strong reverberation and long reverberation times.
In order to prevent hearing damage or heart and circulatory illnesses, and to promote productivity, a noise level of 80 dB should not be exceeded for longer periods. Sound insulation in industrial buildings and workshops stops noise.
What are the possibilities for sound insulation in industrial buildings, factories and workshops?
There are several possibilities for sound insulation in factories. Noise can be dampened, for example, by using sound insulation on individual machines and devices. Machine enclosures or sound insulation elements are frequently used here for soundproofing machine production and plant construction. You can find more information in our category „Machineryconstruction“
The second option for soundproofing in factories or workshops is the large-scale use of broadband absorbers on walls and/or ceilings. Different system solutions can also be used here.
Acoustic baffles / baffle ceilings in factories and workshops
Acoustic baffles are hanging acoustic elements made from high-performance acoustic foam, which are hung from the factory ceiling. The open-pore sound absorbers can either be hung from the entire factory ceiling or in positions above areas where the noise is particularly loud. Installation using cable systems is particularly function and cheap.
Acoustic baffles reduce noise in factories and workshops and improve the room acoustics. Find out more about the popular acoustic elements in our aixFOAM knowledge area (German).

Adhesive solutions on the wall and ceiling
For particularly effective sound insulation in large factories, sound absorbers can be stuck to the walls and ceilings with the practical self-adhesive kit. The sound insulation mats can also be stuck here, either all over or only in specific areas, e.g. around machines. As a result of the sound is absorbed right at the source and the noise is stopped.
Self-adhesive sound absorbers prevent noise from being reflected by walls and ceilings, and thus make a critical contribution to soundproofing in industrial buildings, factories, warehouses and workshops.
Sound absorbers in hanging cassettes
If soundproofing is to be used in specific areas or more strongly in an other, e.g. a machine, the installation of hanging cassettes
with sound absorbers is an option. With special vibration anchors or cable systems, the sound absorbers can easily attached to wall or ceiling. The advantage: The mobile acoustic elements can easily be removed again or repositioned without the absorbers or the base being damaged.
Fire safety requirements in industrial buildings, factories and workshops are complied with
In order to reduce not only the noise and reverberation, but also in order to meet the high fire protection requirements in industry, all aixFOAM acoustic absorbers for factories and workshops are available according to fire safety class DIN4102 B1. As a result, the absorbers are extraordinarily resistant to heat and fire, even naked flames, and in an emergency guarantee the necessary safety.
