Noise Refuge Soundproof cabin for Health and Safety at Work
A Noise refuge, also called an acoustic cabin, soundproof cabin or sound haven can provide extremely high levels of acoustic comfort in a noisy industrial environment.
These are modular and offer simple self assembly onsite.
Ideal for protecting the workforce from excessive machine noise.
Available with acoustic doors, ventilation and windows if required.
All components are designed to slot into place based on the 450mm wide main panel footprint.
The inside walls are perforated steel and therefore acoustically absorbent. This provides a high degree of internal acoustic comfort as well as further reducing the internal noise levels.
Enclosure: Made from self-supporting modular panels, acoustic door and window.
Behaviour: Acoustic isolation and internal absorption
Audiometric booth exterior dimensions: 1350 x 1350 x 2160mm or 2700 x 2700 x 2160mm (custom sizes available upon request)
Noise Refuges: Any size
Conformity: Health observation protocol specified for workers exposed to noise with reference to ISO 6189: 1983
Exterior: 1mm flat lacquered plate
Absorbent: Mineral fibre with black tissue facing
Interior: 0.5mm multi-perforated plate
Finish: grey – similar to RAL 9002

Internal Structural Support Steels
For larger enclosures an internal steel support frame may be required for supporting the roof and bracing the walls.
If the sound haven is inside a factory steel support is not usually required unless the size exceeds 4m(w) x 6m (w) x 4m(h).
