Creating a Sound Attenuated Unit
Standard shipping containers are not soundproof. Sound attenuation is achieved with specialised modifications.
Industrial equipment, such as diesel generators, that is stored inside a container can be particularly loud due to the vibrations generated when in operation. This noise is then amplified as often equipment is stored in large open spaces, such as a factory. This is just one example of how large industrial equipment can potentially be in breach of HSE’s Noise Regulations.
Creating a unit that can both operate safely and be sound attenuated means that often bespoke modification of the unit is required.
The Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005
The HSE’s Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005 were put in place to protect people from dangerous exposure to noise.
Employers are required to assess the noise risks to their employees, and take action to reduce the noise exposure that produces those risks. This includes ensuring noisy industrial equipment is housed in a sound attenuated enclosure.
Converted Sound Attenuated Containers from S Jones
We have worked with many customers to create sound attenuated storage for industrial equipment.
Thanks to our experienced conversions team, we can design and deliver a bespoke storage solution that complies with your local restrictions, offering peace of mind that your equipment won’t cause any disruption.
For example, our team worked on a container unit for a customer where there were noise restrictions onsite. To accommodate these needs, we fitted a 20ft container unit out with sound attenuation panelling and louvres. In this case, the forced ventilation fan was also silenced.
If you need a sound attenuated container, please discuss your requirements with one of our Technical Engineers.
Great Company to work with we have purchased many containers from them, fast delivery and great service
