Traffic and transport

With sound advice and the right acoustic products, you can make a vehicle quieter – which is beneficial for both the occupants and people in the immediate vicinity.

There are various reasons for wanting to make a vehicle quieter. For example, in order not to disturb the sleep of neighbouring residents during the loading and unloading of trucks or to protect drivers from hearing loss. Noise control in ambulances can even save lives: just think of what could happen if the siren were to drown out communication! However, ‘ordinary’ comfort is a cast-iron motive as well. No one likes to listen to the drone of the engine during a bus trip, particularly not on long trips.

Is noise from a vehicle a nuisance?

Motorbikes, buses, cars and lorries all generate noise. So far, nothing new. It becomes a problem when that noise starts to be a nuisance – to both the occupants of the vehicle and people in the immediate vicinity. An excessive level of noise is not always immediately perceptible. There are also statutory noise requirements in place, which in turn mean that measurable noise pollution is an important factor. Regardless of your reason for wanting to make a vehicle quieter, here at Merford we are ready to help you tackle the source of noise pollution.

The solutions

The type of noise reduction that is most suitable differs depending on the situation. Sometimes the acoustic material we carry in our online store offers a solution, while in other instances the best alternative is a customised solution. Merford’s specialists first analyse the source of the noise. We do this on-site or in our own acoustics laboratory. Various measurements, including measurements with an acoustic camera, provide a good overview of the situation. Next, we select the most suitable acoustic materials and develop a custom-made solution. Placed an order? Then you can rest assured that it’s in good hands. We supply our products just-in-time from our branch in Gorinchem. This saves you a great deal of storage space. The materials can be supplied in boards, rolls and as (sets of) die-cut or water-jet cut custom parts. This solution is profitable even in small batches.
