Sound can be beneficial, as when communicating with others or delighting in musical compositions, but it is also potentially detrimental. Unwanted sounds can interfere with daily life—these sounds are commonly referred to as noise. Noise can affect people negatively in different settings. In homes, noise can add difficulty to sleeping, which can lead to various health issues. In schools, noise can interfere with the respective teaching and learning processes of instructors and students. In music studios, noise can lead to sub-par recordings and loss of revenue. Noise is more than just an occasional annoyance; it can be dangerous. Working at construction sites or manufacturing plants requires the utmost concentration from employees. Noise can cause non-repairable hearing damage and be a cause of general body fatigue. It can also cause on- site confusion that can result in poor production affecting value of goods, serious injury, or worse. Noise reduction can help to improve employee mood and increase general productivity. The experts at Acoustical Surfaces, Inc. specialize in noise reduction and acoustical treatment. We are here to help you ease the burdens caused by unwanted sound. This guide will discuss a variety of noise problems and offer solutions depending on your particular scenario.

The first criteria for simplification of products to fix your noise problem is the location of the problem. Is this a problem happening inside of a building or outside in the elements. In order to determine the best way to approach a noise problem, one must critically inspect and understand the nature of the problem. Having a clear understanding of the type of noise you are trying to reduce is important. Exterior noise problems are often situations where the noise is coming from one specific location like a loud piece of machinery or equipment. Outside Noise Even though all situations are slightly different, most exterior sound problems are treated in similar ways. To further simplify selecting the correct product for an acoustical problem where Mother Nature comes into play, the number of products that are able to withstand the weather (specifically significant amounts of U.V. exposure) are relatively limited. Below you will find a list of products that will either block noise, absorb echo/reflections off of a hard surface or both.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
