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 absorbing walls like a generator sound enclosure.
Our parent company Sound Fighter® can create multi-functional surrounds that absorb reflective sound waves, preventing dangerous noise levels from disrupting workers and reaching neighboring residential areas and other commercial companies.
Why Generators Are 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 owners to use sound barrier panels to cut down direct and indirect sources of offensive sound. We have six reasons why business owners need to utilize an outdoor generator enclosure:
- Electrical Noise
- Engine Operation
- Exhaust Sounds
- Alternator Brushes In Use
- Noise From The Cooling Fan
- Structural Movement And Vibration
What Sound Absorbing Barriers Do
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 An Outdoor Sound Wall 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
Sound Absorbing Panels Reduce Dangerous Sound 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 absorbing panels are effective at transforming the reflective wall into a barrier that fully-absorbs the sound waves.
With highly effective sound dampening materials, these panels provide an affordable and helpful aftermarket solution to conventional noise wall technologies.
Customizable Generator Enclosure Design For Commercial Applications
Whether you operate a large warehouse, a major big box store, an airport, or a construction crew who needs a portable option for an outdoor sound wall, we work with companies to develop a unique sound barrier system that can be used for almost any outdoor application.
Our 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 Enclosures For Generators
When a generator 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 you are looking to address potential noise issues, we can provide the right outdoor sound walls that will become a solution that can last for decades!
