Lets face it, we would all like to work in or be entertained in a space that has great acoustics with a low noise floor. We may not be able to identify those things as the solution but we certainly know when those things are a problem.
Poor acoustics and high ambient noise levels make production levels drop and create less than positive attitudes by contributing to headaches and stress as well as hearing loss over time. So, many times it is necessary to address soundproofing/Isolation and vibration control needs before we can achieve great room acoustics.
There are four principal means of improving Airborne Noise & Vibration:
1 Interrupting the noise or vibration path, with barriers (for noise) or isolators (for vibration).
2 Absorption of the noise or vibration energy, for example with foam noise absorbers, or tuned vibration dampers.
3 Stop higher powered low frequencies by adding mass loaded barriers to existing walls or creating new walls.
4 Reducing the source strength, as in making a noise source quieter by muffling, or improving the balance mechanism through tuning the harmonics and dampening the source.
Deciding which of these (or what combination) to use in solving a particular problem is one of the challenges Halo Systems can solve for you.
Some methods for improving Airborne noise & Vibration include the use of balancing , modifying the stiffness or mass of structures, modifying the characteristics of elastomeric isolators, adding sound deadening or absorbing materials.
Let the pros at Halo Systems create cost saving solutions for your noise and vibration problems.
