Commercial businesses can face daily fines for exceeding noise levels in some states and communities.
If your company has an outdoor generator, then noise level readings can help determine if the company is in compliance with local regulations or needs a sound wall like a generator sound enclosure.
Our parent company Sound Fighter® can create multi-functional enclosures that can absorb reflective sound waves and in some instances kill the noise from causing noise levels to rise.
Preventing dangerous noise levels from disrupting employees and neighborhoods where these companies are residing can cause a lot of issues for the area. You can find yourself dealing with the local homeowner association and even the city to address the high level of noises coming from your generators.
Why Are Generators So Loud
Many generators are noisy because they utilize combustion engines to generate electricity. Depending on the engine size, a generator can emit over 100 decibels of sound where 60 is the normal level of conversation.
When you combine the noise emanating from the generator itself with a typical lightweight reflective enclosure, the sound will reverberate in unpredictable and troublesome ways.
Stopping this noise requires business owners to use sound barrier walls to cut down direct and indirect sources of offensive sound. We have six reasons why business owners need to utilize a generator enclosure:
- Electrical Noise
- Engine Operation
- Exhaust Sounds
- Alternator Brushes In Use
- Noise From The Cooling Fan
- Structural Movement And Vibration
What Is A Generator Sound Enclosure?
A generator sound enclosure reduces noise levels to meet sound requirements for commercial operation.
A sound barrier wall with absorptive materials does not deflect sounds from one direction to another. These systems diffuse and absorb the sound waves to effectively reduce the noise to acceptable levels.
Advantages Of A Noise Reduction Enclosure
- Reduce sound levels to meet regulatory guidelines for safe work and living conditions
- Improvement of on the job communication due to reduced noise levels
- Easy to install
- Optional mobile barrier systems allowing for new configurations as the job site changes
- Reduction in noise-related complications for nearby residents and commercial neighbors
- Pleasing aesthetics with various patterns and colors
- Rust proof, fireproof, weatherproof, and having the ability to withstand hurricane force winds
Reducing Dangerous Noise Levels
A business with a concrete sound barrier or other reflective attenuation systems does not need expensive demolition services to remove the barrier to achieve sound-absorption.
Instead, our sound walls are effective at transforming the reflective wall into a barrier that fully-absorbs the sound waves. By reducing the noise levels with our generator acoustic enclosure design it will reduce the complaints that a reflective wall could never do.
With highly effective sound dampening materials, our sound barrier panels provide an affordable and helpful aftermarket solution to conventional noise wall technologies.
Customizable Generator Acoustic Enclosure Design
Whether you operate a large warehouse, a major big box store, an airport, or a construction crew who needs a portable generator sound enclosure, we work with companies to develop a unique sound barrier system that can be used for almost any outdoor application.
Our generator enclosures are adaptable allowing for:
- Access Doors
- and Other Necessities
Our team has a diverse range of experience working with civil, private, and public entities, small, large and manufacturing firms.
The Importance of Generator Enclosures
When a generator acoustic enclosure design requires finesse and custom sizes, then having an acoustical consultant review your needs and local requirements is vital.
If you are a business owner and are looking to address potential noise issues that are brought up by a nearby neighborhood or city official we can provide you with the right sound barrier walls that will become a solution that can last for decades!
