Noisy production facilities can be prone to accidents and mistakes. Proper acoustic treatment can minimize injury and downtime.

Here’s the problem with factory noise

Controlling factory noise is essential for many reasons. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) was established in 1971 by the U.S. Congress to help eliminate job safety and health hazards such as noise, and has established regulations that define acceptable noise level exposure in the workplace, requiring employers to maintain an adequate hearing conservation program.

In addition, Federal and local municipalities have regulations in place that put limits on the amount of noise leaving a factory.

Worker exposure to noise should be of great concern to factory owners for the following reasons:

  • It can damage hearing.
  • It can create physical and psychological stress.
  • It can contribute to accidents by making it impossible to hear warning signals.
  • It can make communication difficult.
  • It lowers productivity.

Factory spaces are typically large shells with hard surfaces which essentially turns them into echo chambers amplifying noise levels even higher. One of the most cost effective ways of lowering overall sound levels is the addition of absorption materials to the walls and ceilings. By preventing the sound waves from reflecting off of the hard surfaces in the building, an overall reduction of 3 to 5 dBA can be achieved.


1. Data-driven

We use best-in-class techniques to examine acoustic problems before recommending a solution

Using data collected from our analysis, we create custom solutions to solve your unique acoustic challenges 

3. High- Quality Solutions

Using rugged commercial grade materials, our intelligent acoustic solutions look great, sound amazing, and stand the test of time


Noise mitigation studies in factories can be complicated, involving measuring worker exposure over time with dosimeters, and logging sound levels and the time spent performing each task. In addition, sound level readings taken at each piece of machinery throughout the building must be analyzed to determine the amount of reduction in worker exposure that would be achieved by mitigating the noise generated by that equipment, as well as determining its overall contribution to the direct as well as reverberant field. For this reason it is often more practical to treat factory wide noise reduction with a gradual approach.


As experts in acoustic design, we can help develop an effective, comfortable, and aesthetically pleasing acoustic solution that helps your organization improve the quality and productivity of time spent in your facility.

Our project managers will work with you to assess your noise control needs. With a keen focus on delivering a turn-key solution, we can help design an acoustic package to solve any noise issue.
