When one is looking to protect persons (from noise) by the means of a structure envelopping a noise source (machine), designed for protecting the environment from this noise source (machine), ITS offers a wide range of acoustic barriers for machine for many applications of soundprrofing / acoustic insulation related to the protection of workersagainst noise.

ITS offers powerful solutions at a reasonable cost in response to all the needs in the matter of soundproofing (preventive or curative) by the means of ergonomic equipment (standard or tailor made) for which the quality of design and of execution meets the highest level of requirement in this area for an efficient fight against noise in the context of compliance with legislation on noise at work or of improvement of working conditions.

The acoustic barriers for machine offered by ITS allow the treatment at source of noisy machine and equipment.

The noise level ouside of such soundproofing devices is generally well below the lower values of exposure of workers to noise trigging action: a sound pressure level below 75 dBA can be obtained in numerous ordinary cases, offering in any cases to workers (including: operators of very noisy machinery) the protection against auditory trauma necessary for the performance of their tasks.

The acoustic barriers for machine proposed by ITS can allways be disinstalled for a reinstallation in a different place.

They are usually made of coated metallic soundproofing panels with an insulation made of mineral fiber (wall, roof and if needed: floor) and equipped with painted metallic acoustic doors (rotating or sliding) and of acoustic windows with safety glass. Some of those construction elements may have a sound reduction index Rw that can reach 52 dB as a standard (a higher performance can be obtained by the means of special constructions).

Regarding products and construction systems proposed by ITS their performance is measured in laboratory according to current standards:

  • their sound reduction index according to the standards NF EN ISO 140-3 Acoustics - Measurement of sound insulation in buildings and of building elements - Part 3: laboratory measurement of airborne sound insulation of building elements and EN NF 717-1 Rating of sound insulation in buildings and of building elements Part 1: airborne sound insulation
  • their sound absorption coefficient according to the standards NF EN ISO 354 Acoustics - Measurement of sound absorption in a reverberation room and NF EN ISO 11654 Sound absorbers for use in buildings - Rating of sound absorption

The acoustic barriers for machine proposed by ITS can be delivered as a kit ready to assemble with assembly instructions or be installed turnkey.

A guarantee of acoustic performance on site is issued for each installation of acoustic barriers for machine.
The verification can be conducted according to the standard NF EN ISO 11546-2: Acoustics - Determination of sound insulation performances of enclosures - Part 2 : measurements in situ (for acceptance and verification purposes).

Soundproofing barrier for machine, acoustic barrier for machine, soundproofing barrier for workshop, acoustic barrier for workshop: all equipment that one can source thanks to Isolation Technologie Services (ITS).

Such equipment is sometimes "in full height" i.e. built between floor and roof of production workshop where the geometry of the upper part of the machine and the roof requires it or make it financially attractive. One should then make sure that the roof of the building hosting the partitioning has the appropriate acoustic performance in terms of airborne sound insulation to prevent unwanted sound propagation.

In practice, this case is encountered when it comes to reducing the noise very tall machine, whose peak is sufficiently close to the roof (or in the case of premises with low height), or even when a separation into two areas is envisaged for a workshop (sometimes: between aisles) to prevent noise pollution from one area of activity to the surrounding workstations where relative calm is sought (in the latter case, use of absorbent lining on 2 sides of the barrier then make possible to limit the phenomenon of reverberation on both side).

Often insulation systems used for such constructions may involve subsets made of a single piece or of 2 pieces (i.e. if the height to consider is less than 12 m in terms of construction systems marketed by ITS).
