Manufacturing spaces often contain large amounts of mechanical machinery and, commonly, produce severely high levels of noise for extended periods of time which can impact greatly both on the staff working within and the people located in the surroundings.
Where hard surfaces dominate the structure, spaces become huge reverberation chambers that only amplify the already high levels within. Absorbers are key to addressing this problem for the staff inside these buildings. Moreover, acoustic doors and partitions to adjacent office and break-out areas will ensure that quieter areas will remain for professionals to rest. Also, effective building envelope sound insulation and attenuated ventilation paths will help comply with local regulations on controlling noise breakout to nearby homes so that people’s lives won’t be disturbed.
