Although acoustic enclosures often look similar to sheet metal guards and indeed can often fulfill the same physical function as them, their principle purpose is to prevent high levels of reflective noise and reverberation coming from specific types of machinery.  Such guards have become increasingly important in factory environments, as legislation seeks to ensure that workers are protected from noise induced hearing loss to the same extent as they are protected from other machine hazards.  

How acoustic enclosures work

In addition to the basic sheet metal structure, an acoustic enclosure also contains sound-deadening and sound absorbent materials.  These materials can vary dependent on the application, with a factor determining them being whether or not the application is wet or dry.  

Specification features of acoustic enclosures depending on application, these can include: 

  • Exhaust gas removal for combustion engines
  • Air inlet drive for combustions with filtered air optional

All our acoustic enclosures allow for access for operators and maintenance personnel, with this access controlled by interlocks where necessary.  Indoor and outdoor applications for acoustic enclosures are varied and include those for both indoor and outdoor machinery, with examples including: 

  • Air compressors
  • Diesel and gas generators
  • Cable stranding machinery
  • Metal cutting machines

Installation of acoustic enclosures

As with all the machine guards we design and manufacture at Procter Machine Guarding, we offer a installation service for acoustic enclosures.  We have our own team of highly trained and very experienced fitters, and can carry out installations to fit in with the customer - e.g. weekends, overnight and other factory down-times.  

Where necessary, we work with specialist noise consultants who undertake noise assessments to ensure that we have an accurate record of noise levels prior to an acoustic enclosure being installed, as well as proving that the enclosure reduces noise sufficiently for compliance with the Machinery Directive and Noise Regulations.
