            Absorbent Panels

            Reduced noise pollution by reducing resonance using absorbent panels

            In industrial environments machine noise can easily exceed legal limits. The consequence is a serious risk to the health of production personnel and/or surrounding residents. In operating areas with hard walls, floors and ceilings the resonance of sound often is a stubborn problem. Hard surfaces cause the noise level to increase and create resonance.

            A workable industrial environment within reach
            An excessively high noise level and irritating resonance make the area anything but liveable and comfortable. Noise-producing machinery in these areas can be a key contributor to this situation. Sound-absorbent panels mounted against the walls and possibly the ceiling largely remove the resonance, thus significantly reducing noise levels and resonance. This way you create a safe and pleasant work environment for your personnel and nearby residents. Merford would like to provide you with a custom-made solution, potentially in combination with other products, such as housings, ventilation silencers or doors, as necessary. The many custom-work options in terms of insulation, absorption, form, dimension and finish enable Merford to offer a good solution to virtually any noise problem, for existing as well as new installations.
