Acoustic Enclosures

Industrial R&D test cell created with modular enclosure panels to form walls and high STC doors for passage doors.

Successful acoustic test facilities require partnerships between end-users, acoustic specialists and manufactures.  This test facility renovation used modular technology to expand a hemi-anechoic by Z+3 ft to create full-anechoic capability. 

10, 15 even 20 decibel reductions can be suitable at half the cost of a hard steel enclosure using Sound Seal industrial composite panels.  Sliding doors, vents, supporting structure, windows with a variety of panels types, STC and NRC ratings can be used to design a wide range of soft enclosures.

Sound Seal composite BBC panels outfitted to cure refrigeration noise near luxury homes in La Jolla CA.  Detailed use of Velcro mating edges, grommets, custom flaps produce a low cost but very effective enclosure.

Acoustic modeling and multiple panel types including 4-layer steel walls were required to achieve below 45 dbA ambient from 88 dbA noise level just 10 ft from new luxury homes at this water transport facility that is in operation 24/7.  Turnkey project for So Cal utility.

High STC enclosures required as component parts for noisy systems can be custom designed and installed in plant as part of system production.  Options include STC 40 to as high as STC 54 in a 4” sandwich panel, ventilation, fire control, power and lighting.

CHP Gas fired gen set enclosure.  Interior hospital conditions with a 3 mega-watt generator means an extremely challenging noise control problem at the Veteran’s Hospital  SLC, UT.  STC 59 Modular enclosure was installed with equipment in place, PSC installers needed to work around the new machine to allow for the chicken-egg problem of a very tight fit both overhead and around the machine.
