Sound Studies

IDENTIFY YOUR SOURCES, PRIORITIZE THE PROBLEMS AND ENGINEER YOUR SOLUTION

 

Applied Acoustical Group provides a number of sound studies to evaluate and diagnose noise problems.

Applied Acoustical Group is acutely aware of the immense frustration that can stem from noise issues. Dealing with this stress and any potential complications can be critical to many different projects. Whether it’s pre-construction or after an installation is complete, noise studies are a key piece to this puzzle, and we’re proud to offer services that satisfy this need.

Using 30 years expertise and ANSI S1.4 Type I certified sound level meters, our technicians identify and diagnose potential or current noise sources, measure equipment-specific noise levels, and document all of this data for you in a clearly-formatted report. This information allows our group to determine if you have a problem that needs addressing, and furthermore, gives us the ability to design, engineer, manufacture and install a custom mitigation solution. This data-driven, on-site approach ensures that we provide our customers with actionable information and cost-effective solutions.

Applied Acoustical Group is also able to help with compliance issues as well. When dealing with new equipment installations our customers are concerned with making sure that they will be in compliance with local noise ordinances and regulations. Through current layout analysis, planned mitigation design, expected equipment noise levels, and local noise ordinance review, we can provide guidance on whether or not our client can expect to be in compliance with the appropriate regulations. Furthermore, we can provide post-installation testing and reporting to prove the compliance. If compliance is not expected, we can provide the design engineering and manufacturing to properly install an effective mitigation solution.

Industrial noise control study is also an area of expertise for Applied Acoustical Group. If you’re in danger of being in violation of the OSHA Time-Weighted-Average requirements, we can provide a Time-Weighted-Average study using docimeters to document any potential violations and what we can do to mitigate those issues. Further, if it’s a plant-wide, general noise control survey that you need, we can provide that service as well.

Please don’t hesitate to call AAG today to discuss your noise study needs.

Facility Evaluation

If your facility has a specific machine or process that is the source of unwanted noise, we can make a site-visit to take evaluate your application. This may include physical measurements of your machine and noise level and frequency readings. We’ll then take this information to design a custom solution that fits your acoustical and budgetary requirements.

Employee Time-Weighted-Average

Employee time-weighted-average surveys may be required for a variety of reasons. OSHA can require a manufacturing facility to implement an Employee Hearing Conservation Program, or a company-wide initiative to reduce employee noise exposure can be encouraged to reduce insurance costs or simply to provide a better workplace environment. Using individual dosimeters for each employee, we can provide your company with eight-hour time-weighted-averages for each employee, identify which employees are over the 85 dba and ultimately provide a solutions proposal to that will make your firm compliant with OSHA regulations.

Property Line Assessment

Noise from major roadways, wastewater treatment facilities and even neighboring bars and restaurants can cause serious frustration for adjacent businesses and residences. Applied Acoustical Group is experienced in conducting property line assessments that will identify what the noise levels are at the concerned property line and compare those results with local noise ordinances. We can then make a recommendation, if one is needed, for what solution will resolve the noise issues.
