Only once it is quiet do you realise how much noise there is on any given day. And how unpleasant this can be. Ventilation systems, machinery and vehicles create continuous noise. Excessive exposure to this can cause stress, buzzing in your ears, high blood pressure, as well as heart problems. Good reason why government enacts laws and regulations that provide for a better sound climate. But even when public health is not at risk, silence is a precious commodity. Merford helps you control any undesirable noise in various ways. Whether you need to comply with the latest noise legislation or want to compete with the quietest machine on the market, we can help you.
Controlling decibels is a precise task. To guarantee optimal noise reduction, we first conduct meticulous tests and measurements using calibrated measuring equipment. We do this on-site or in our own test room: the Silence Factory. Using acoustic cameras (sound imaging) we can easily localise the source and strength of the noise. Following a meticulous analysis, our experts design a solution for you in 3D. Naturally, our solution provides due consideration to your wishes and the legal requirements that apply to your situation. We have all the required thermal insulation, fire safety, ventilation, cooling, lighting and explosion safety (ATEX) expertise in-house for this purpose.
It may be that the solution to your noise issues is best provided in the form of a total product: a turnkey solution. In that case Merford ensures that the source of the noise is completely insulated through means of a housing or a different kind of structure. In actual practice such sources often consist of machinery, equipment or installations that vary significantly in terms of size and level of noise. Merford delivers these solutions ready-made, without any need for concern on your part. Our project managers guide the entire process, from sound measurement to final assembly.
Sometimes a noise problem requires an integrated solution. For example, when you want to dampen a motor’s vibrations or reduce the sound produced by a CH boiler. In such instances we incorporate acoustic materials into your product. We will meet with your Research & Development department to develop the most effective design and you fully benefit from our knowledge and experience. Once the product is ready for market, we supply just-in-time so that your production line never comes to a standstill. Merford also uses acoustic materials or components for spatial acoustics. For example, if you want to absorb the reverberations in a meeting room, acoustic panels may be a good solution. If we do not have a readily available solution in our webshop, we can create a custom-made product.
