Environment noise and vibration

By mapping, predicting, and responding to levels of noise, vibration and other pollutants in the environment, we can safeguard health and improve our quality of life.

From airports to concert halls, and from cityscapes to waste disposal sites, we all want an environment that is as comfortable, safe and peaceful as possible. The effective management of environmental noise can safeguard our health and our quality of life while also improving and extending operations. By mapping, predicting and responding to noise levels, we can get the most value from every decibel that we are legally permitted to produce at any given moment. By understanding the sources in detail, we can work to reduce them effectively. And by perfecting the acoustics inside any space, we can optimize its ability to fulfill its functions.

The cost of failing to manage noise and other environmental impact

Failing to monitor construction noise can lead to huge compensation payments if people are unlawfully disturbed. Similarly, with airports, excess noise can lead to suspended flights and fines. And all workplaces are liable for the health of their workers, if they fail to protect them from noise and vibration injuries.

Here are some of the ways Brüel & Kjær can help you attain the right balance between noise and vibration and the surrounding environment.

  • Urban noise planning and mapping

    Because it directly affects quality of life, urban noise has become a major concern for urban planners, municipal officials, and politicians alike.

  • Environmental monitoring for compliance

    To maximize your operations inside current environmental-emissions limits, you need to know what your emissions are while you are operating.

  • Airport environment management

    Airports can minimize noise exposure through a range of initiatives based on the International Civil Aviation Organization’s (ICAO) balanced approach to aircraft noise management.

  • Workplace noise

    Establishing the noise levels of machines and equipment allows you to ensure proper protection for your employees

  • Room and building acoustics

    Architectural acoustics encompasses the fields of building acoustics and room acoustics. Building acoustics focuses on sound transmission through walls, doors and floors. Room acoustics focuses on the behaviour of sound inside a room
