Noise Control

One of the primary functions of perforated metal panels is noise control. Perforated acoustic panels are used for countless applications to make environments more hospitable, more productive and safer. Accurate Perforating Company can supply you with the highest quality perforated metal acoustic panels specifically suited for your application.

Why Should I Worry About Noise Control?

Noise is an unseen, yet very common, workplace hazard. It can damage hearing, increase blood pressure, harm the heart and create unneeded stress. Even outside of the workplace, high levels of noise can be uncomfortable and incredibly unpleasant. In public space, it can have a detrimental effect, and in commercial zones, it can deter crucial foot traffic.

As such, acoustic soundproofing is becoming standard in building design — both for residential and commercial.

How Does Perforated Metal Improve Noise Control?

When sound barriers are made solely from reflective materials, noise bounces off, but isn’t eliminated. Barriers incorporating absorptive materials mitigate sound waves, and protect hearing and health. These barriers have a layer of absorbing material and air beneath the perforated metal panel.

Common Applications for Acoustic Soundproofing

From air silencers to generator noise reduction, Accurate Perforating Company provides customized acoustical panels for many industries:

  • Transportation: Aircraft, roadway and subway noises are among the most pervasive. Noise is reduced outside the system, as well as inside, for passengers.
  • Industrial: Large acoustical panels erected around generators muffle noise, and silencer walls outside the plant protect nearby communities.
  • HVAC: Perforated metal components in the blowers reduce noise, as do duct silencers.
  • Prisons: Security ceilings of secure, soundproof perforated metal are used in prison cells.
  • Restaurants, indoor pools and conference centers use acoustical panels to control ambient and reflective noise.
  • Concert halls: Concert hall panels significantly improve sound quality in venues.
  • Recording studios: In environments where sound control is crucial for recordings, perforated metal panels give you much greater control.
  • Aircraft noise control: Aircraft run-up silencers reduce noise at airports and the surrounding area.
  • Generator sound enclosure: In addition to providing ventilation, perforated metal is ideal for generator sound enclosure

The Difference Between Sound Sentinel and Sound Director

When considering perforated metal for noise control, you often have one of two objectives: Sound Sentinel is a way to block sound via sound absorption, so that you virtually eliminate some sound and reduce it overall. Sound Director refers to redirecting sound by both absorbing it in some places and reflecting it in others. This is commonly used in concert halls, auditoriums and recording studios.

To help improve environments affected by or designed for sound, Accurate Perforating provides perforated acoustical panels to sound engineers. Multi-layered “sound control sandwiches” guard against noise pollution.
