In a printing workshop, a rotary press is a very powerful noise source potentially causing sound nuisance for the personnel operating in the vicinity (in production halls) and sometimes also for the neighborhood. It is often necessary to use in such cases a high-tech soundproofing equipment to ensure the conformity of the facility with respect to the legislation on noise in workplaces and sometimes also with respect to the regulations in terms of fight against domestic noise.
ITS will participate in the construction of a noise barrier for an offset rotary press near Laval in the county of Mayenne in the region Pays de la Loire (France).
This soundproofing device will offer a sound reduction particularly important at medium and high frequency where the maximum of the noise emission of the enclosed noisy equipments is, requiring a specific design and a specific construction of the partitions of this noise barrier wall.
Related features such as visibility for the operation of the machines, access for maintenance work, disassembly of some subsets of the soundproofing equipments ... will be integrated according to the needs for this nosie barrier wall for an offset rotary press. Employees exposure to noise risks will considerably be reduced after this industrial soundproofing action and acoustical comfort at workplaces will be significantly increased.
Such a project is a good illustration of the know-how of ITS and its business partners in the field of protection against noise at work places.
