Noise Regulations Applications

  • Noise monitoring for railways and trains

    Controlling and monitoring railway and train noise in residential and urban areas is a critical function of a railway. The noise generated can be dependent upon the engine, rail cars, rail construction, train speed, and the horn. Modern high speed trains have also created new levels of high frequency noise that create an acoustic disturbance that sounds like an aircraft going by.

  • Noise and vibration monitoring for city monitoring

    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.

  • Noise and vibration problem solutions for building & construction sector

    Approved Document E of The Building Regulations (2003 Edition) is the document setting out the requirements for sound insulation in buildings. It contains a requirement that organisations carrying out sound insulation testing should be third party accredited in order to demonstrate their competence to carry out such work. We are registered under The Association of Noise Consultants scheme as a testing organisation.

  • Pulsar noise testing equipment for workplace sector

    Workplace noise monitoring is an interesting subject that can appear complex, but it is always worth remembering what you are trying to achieve. This can be summarised as: ““Minimising or avoiding the risk of noise-induced hearing loss in the workplace to comply with local, noise-based, legislation”” Such legislation is usually based on a European Directive that is then modified to suit the needs of each particular country. For example, in the United Kingdom, the ‘The Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005’ are based on the European Union Directive 2003/10/EC; usually called “The physical agents (noise)” directive and expanded upon by the Health & Safety Executive.
