Noise Refuge for Health and Safety at Work

A Noise refuge or sound haven can provide extremely high levels of acoustic comfort in a noisy industrial environment.

They 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.

  • Sound reduction index Rw(C; Ctr) (dB): 32 (-1;-6)
  • Weighted acoustic absorption coefficient αw: 1.00
  • Absorption class: A
  • Reaction to fire: B,s1,d0 according to AITEX no. 08AN0311
  • Acoustic test report: APPLUS No. 06/3230085

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).
