Noise Engineers recently installed acoustical treatment to a factory in Mexico. The installation was done to reduce worker noise exposure. In this blog we will discuss the noise problem, the treatment options, and the expected noise reduction.
Noise Engineers is working with Davy Architecture on the acoustics for the remodel of the Emerson Bandini Elementary School located in San Diego, California. The primary acoustical issues being addressed are: mechanical noise, sound isolation, impact insulation, and room acoustics.
Acoustical absorption is used in a wide array of settings and applications. It is used to control echo, reduce the noise level in a space, make it easier to understand speach, and control focusing.
When evaluating a space that has too much echo or the sound level is too high, reverberation time is generally used. Reverberation time is a measure of how long sound stays present within a space after it is made. More specifically, reverberation time is defined as the time required for the level of sound…
