While many people are aware of noise problems, they are likely not aware that all sound is caused by vibration. The faster the vibration, the higher pitched the sound. Noise is an everyday occurrence and part of our daily lives. Whether it is our alarm going off to start our day or the road noise on our way to work, it is there. And while we might have come to accept the noise as part of our lives, it can become bothersome and even dangerous. That’s where acoustical services come into play.

Acoustical specialists work to tackle noise problems in various business sectors. They have applied various sound reduction techniques for the following:

  • Warehouse Sound Control
  • Environmental Science
  • Architectural Design
  • Underwater Noise Management
  • Highway Noise Reduction

Methods of Vibration Deduction

One way to minimize vibration in outdoor environments it through the use of acoustic panels. Sounds waves can become strong enough, from heavy machinery, to cause intense vibrations which can weaken structures and equipment. It can loosen bolts and nuts over time and create dangerous situations. It is important acoustic assessments be performed in any construction location. This is to help keep noise levels at acceptable, safe, levels for structures, equipment, and employees. If you are in need of acoustical services, look no further than IES-2000.
