Among all the environmental problems we’re experiencing, noise is considered to be one of the fastest-growing. The noise pollution increases along with the growth of the population. For example, people living in urban or populated areas, noise pollution poses a grave threat when it comes to the environment and the quality of life.
Noise Issues: How Can It Be Solved?
First and foremost, one needs to address noise-related problems and to be able to do that, one needs to fully understand the situation that we’re in, in a professional manner. With that in mind, Sound Planning is a company that helps provide various solutions to architectural, industrial and even commercial noise problems. They, like Auricl, are one of many companies who are trying to combat these problems.
Understanding where the noise is coming from and being able to know where that sound goes is one of the most acceptable resolutions about this growing problem. Knowing where the sound leads to, as well as the people who are affected by the said problem makes it easier to control excessive noise. This way, people living and staying in nearby areas will stay protected.
Noise Control Solutions
As mentioned earlier, to solve the noise problem, we need to have professionals looking into it, and this can be done with an in-depth understanding and data of acoustics. We have a team of experienced professionals who are fully equipped with knowledge with the perfect noise control solution, regardless of the structure, size, or whether it’s outdoor, or indoor.
For example, in industrial-sized buildings, vibration and whirring coming from large machines are one of the possible causes of noise. Some types of machinery may consist of specific components that can be easily damaged with high vibrational movements. What should be done? Isolation. Remove any sensitive equipment from the area where excessive vibrations occur.
When it comes to reducing noise, some countermeasures may include but are not limited to acoustic louvres, enclosures, doors, and even screens.
The local authority has put in place certain noise reduction requirements, and acoustic enclosures have been proven to meet those requirements. They can also be used in various applications including industrial equipment, generators, engine test rooms, pumps, AC units, fans, plant rooms, and chillers.
Aside from experienced consultants, we also have a team of engineers that can speak with the clients and see to it that the designs will meet their individual requirements, not to mention that it also adheres to the local authorities’ requirements. The entire process also involves providing CAD drawings to further help with the entire planning process. If required by the client, we also offer assistance with the entire designing process, which may include various changes and even additional advancements.
Sound Planning is known for providing high-quality bespoke acoustic enclosures that will surely meet the clients’ needs. We always aim to make sure that every piece of enclosure goes through a strict quality testing ensuring that every piece is completed with the highest standards as much as possible. Aside from being functional, we also make sure that each piece looks aesthetically good to the eye, tailored-fit to that specific client’s requirements. These enclosures that we make can be used to control excessive noise in the various room as such fuel tanks and systems, control rooms, storage facilities, lifting rooms, engine rooms, etc.
Architectural Acoustic Consultants
In terms of industrial and architectural acoustics, acoustic designers and consultants are the ones dealing with this. This refers to the sound that is produced inside the buildings, regardless of their type. By making sure that buildings are properly designed, the sounds produced within that room are distributed efficiently, and at the same time, it helps eliminate undesirable sounds.
Most of you may know the importance of having good acoustics in locations like concert halls, recording studios and even theatres. This was initially where the acoustics were being used in, but today, the focus has also shifted to factories, offices, classrooms and even homes to make sure that all buildings, residential or commercial, have an appropriate acoustic environment. All of these things can be accomplished with the right building design. Come to think of it, this is going to be more cost-effective if this is included in the original plan, than having to include this later on.
Different Sectors Influenced by Acoustics
Since we’re trying to increase public awareness on the significance of having good building acoustics, this also means that the demand for acoustic designers and consultants generally increase as well, and we are looking for people with experience in these fields:
- Environmental, Commercial and Industrial
- Health, Education and Justice
- Entertainment, Performing Arts and Leisure
- Demolition and Construction
- Sound Insulation Testing
