CadnaA is an excellent tool for the calculation of noise maps and for Strategic Noise Mapping according to the EC Directive on Environmental Noise. A great number of users value its richness in features, calculation speed and last but not least, usability. Numerous noise maps of cities and even entire countries have been calculated and are calculated using CadnaA.
We are proud to develop the most powerful software for the calculation, assessment and presentation of outdoor noise. Our software solutions for the calculation and assessment, prediction and presentation of environmental noise exposure are powerful, yet easy to use. Whether your objective is to study the noise immission of an industrial plant, of a commercial center including a parking lot, of a new road or railway scheme or even of entire towns and urbanized areas: CadnaA is designed to handle all these tasks.
The XL2 Sound Level Meter provides the dedicated solution for monitoring environmental noise in industry and communities. It measures levels and detailed spectral information in parallel and stores the data on an SD card for post-processing and reporting. A linear audio file (wav-file) may be recorded for detailed simultaneous analysis.
The type approved class 1 sound level meter offers a flexible handheld instrument with accurate and reliable measurements. Data recording can be scheduled to occur at pre-determine...
Neighbour Noise, Environmental Noise & Community Noise. Noise nuisance is a growing issue that continues to hit the headlines. Whether it`s noisy neighbours, barking dogs or music events, the need to measure noise nuisance is rapidly increasing.
Road and Railway Noise
CadnaA is the leading software for the calculation, assessment, prediction and presentation of traffic noise, with many thousands of kilometers already modelled worldwide. Roads, parking lots and railway lines can be modelled very conveniently to calculate the noise immission in the vicinity and to derive decisions about further noise reduction plans. Efficient workflows are used to tackle specific problems, such as the optimization of different noise reduction measures or comparisons of...
For environmental noise monitoring when short measurements are required using a hand held Sound Level Meter. This could be for boundary monitoring of industrial sites or noise surveys for planning purposes.
State of the art noise monitoring systems; Modern noise monitoring systems offer a wide range of advanced features and come with software that can analyze and structure long term measurements data efficiently. A complete noise monitoring system consists of one or more noise monitoring terminals, a noise server and work stations for presentation, post processing and reporting.
Environmental noise monitors that connect directly to process measurement and control systems. Many industrial plants have a variety of process sensors strategically placed around their site so that safety, environmental impact and efficiency can be monitored and managed, in real time, from one or more control rooms.
Environmental noise is a major issue in most countries, especially in areas of high population, and the sources of noise and their adverse effects on our well-being are varied. In terms of assessing the impact of these issues, we need to be able to make suitable noise measurements, or in some cases monitor the noise levels for longer periods.
Environmental Noise is one of the fastest growing areas of noise monitoring, mapping and control. The EU has introduced a number of Directives aimed at increasing the level of information about Environmental Noise across the EU. In 1996, data from the EU Green Paper on Future Noise Policy estimated that around 20% of the EU`s population, or close to 80 million people, suffer from noise levels that experts consider to be unacceptable. Most of these people become annoyed and suffer from sleep deprivation, which...
Construction can be a industry where high noise levels are common and where both occupational and environmental noise monitoring may be needed. The measurement and monitoring of noise from construction sites can be carried out using a range of different instruments depending upon the time over which the measurements need to be made.
Noise has become the primary source of environmental disturbance. In 2002, the European Union took decisive action in the form of directive 2002/49/CE relating to the assessment and management of environmental noise. Through the use of strategic noise mapping, every urban community must implement an action plan to combat noise pollution. The monitoring of noise levels in urban environments is therefore an essential factor.
Cirrus Environmental has been providing noise monitoring systems for motorsport noise measurement and control for a number of years and has supplied systems to some of the leading circuits around the world. Combining noise monitors with the NoiseHub software, we can provide a tailored package to meet your needs.
The construction sector and its wide range of associated activities are very varied and from a noise monitoring perspective offer many unique challenges. However, Pulsar Instruments have a solution; a construction Pulsar noise meter with the ability to effectively assess the following two key categories:
(1) Noise at Work (potential for noise-induced hearing loss due to long term exposure to noisy activities)
(2) Environmental Noise (the potential to cause annoyance to surrounding areas or buildings during site...
Airport noise monitoring often requires a combination of short term measurements to gather information along with long term measurements to maintain compliance with agreed noise levels. Cirrus Environmental has a range of noise measurement instruments that have been purpose designed for these tasks along with the NoiseHub software package.
For Industrial Noise Monitoring applications, Cirrus Environmental can supply a range portable, semi-permanent or permanent noise monitors as well as the MK:427 NoiseSensor for integration into existing data logging systems.
A range of noise measurement instruments, all fully weather protected for reliable long term operation, that are ideal for transport noise measurements. Whether it’s for short term handheld measurements or longer term noise monitoring applications, Cirrus Environmental can offer a solution.
By implementing a noise and vibration monitoring system, the impact of construction site activities can be managed by: Complying with legal requirements relating to public health sanctioning the absence of appropriate precautions to limit abnormally high levels of noise and vibrations. Taking environmental quality considerations into account (HQE approach). Limiting noise and vibration pollution with the comfort of neighbouring residents in mind. Enabling companies in the public works and construction industry to...
Cirrus Environmental can supply a range of noise measurement options for construction and demolition noise applications. These range from handheld sound level meters for taking noise measurements through semi-permanent noise monitors to permanently installed noise monitoring systems, all designed to be fully weather protected for reliable long term operation.
The increase in housing stock required by the government is leading to developments being considered in a wider variety of locations and can provide challenges in assessing and agreeing levels of acceptable noise and vibration exposure. With the introduction of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) and the Noise Policy statement for England (NPSE) clients are faced with rapidly changing local authority requirements.
