Neighborhood Noise


…it usually gets very loud, and friendly requests to turn the music down are not successful. Then, in most cases, it is time for the residents to ask code enforcement officers or the police for help. The Type 2245 sound level meter is the ideal solution for reliably measuring excessive noise levels in the neighbourhood or at festivals and parties.

The ideal partner for reliable noise measurement

The PTB-certified and calibrated Type 2245 Class 1 sound level meter from Brüel & Kjær is the ideal partner for quick and easy on-site noise measurement.

Its clearly readable display offers ease of use, showing the relevant parameters in large digits and also conveying to the noisemaker if permissible limit values are exceeded.

The device can be upgraded as required. Its basic version shows the instantaneous time-weighted sound level (LAF) and the maximum  time-weighted sound level (LAFmax).

Due to its built-in Wi-Fi hotspot, the device can also be positioned at a remote measuring point, e.g., in front of the complainant’s window, and the current level can be displayed to the noisemaker live, on the spot, on a smartphone.

Other options available for purchase include A-weighted equivalent continuous noise level (LAeq), clock maximal sound level as defined by DIN 45641 (L AFTeq), level statistics, level recorder, frequency analysis (1/1 and 1/3 octave), and even audio signal recording. 

This means that the device can be used for quick on-site measurement and can also be extended by adding all the required parameters for a complete environmental noise survey.

  • Uniquely simple and easy to use
  • Brilliant and high-contrast display that shows the relevant level value in large digits
  • Type-tested and legal for trade
