Acoustic Noise Havens are becoming increasingly popular in automated plant areas and our design expertise means that we can tailor-make a solution to meet the needs of your operation.
If it is impractical to enclose the machine(s) that is causing the noise, the next option is to create a space for the staff to break out and be protected from the noisy machinery. These are called an acoustic noise havens.
They are designed and built to provide a quiet environment where employees can work and communicate with optimum efficiency, these bespoke solutions often incorporate access doors, dual glazed viewing windows, lighting and ventilation/air conditioning for the comfort of your personnel.
We also have substantial experience of semi-anechoic chambers which provide controlled acoustic noise test facilities for quality assurance and research development facilities.

As we know, under The Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005 (Noise Regulations 2005) employers are required to prevent or reduce risks to health and safety from exposure to noise at work for their staff.
