Most of our acoustic enclosures are completed at our factory and are ready to go directly into service. Installation is simple and can be done by the customer. For example so-called ‘drop over’ type units may only need to be lowered over the machine. Drop over enclosures can be used when it is necessary to suppress noise pollution from machinery either fixed or mobile. Legally employers must protect their employees from continuous high noise levels above 85dB(A).
On the other hand, site work may be necessary when the enclosure is large and cannot be transported in one piece or when it needs to be mounted in restricted spaces. Then we supply the enclosure in panel form with quick-acting catches and assemble it on site. The enclosures can be constructed from any outer materials for a finish to your requirements and also all weather conditions. Each acoustic enclosure installation is treated individually. Site evaluations are carried out to determine the type of enclosure required.
Equipment such as presses, foundry shake-out machines, nail making machines, and granulators require an inlet and outlet for entry and exit of the product. These openings need attenuation to minimise noise emission. Fans emitting considerable noise through the casing will also need to be enclosed and therefore penetrations will need to be provided for the air inlet and outlet. A small ventilation fan may be needed to remove the electric motor heat.
