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 hall) 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 has participated in the construction of a noise barrier wall for a rotary press near Rouen in the county of Seine Maritime in the region Haute Normandie (France).
This industrial 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 (among them: the folder) 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 machine, access for maintenance work, disassembly of some subsets of the soundproofing equipments ... were integrated according to the needs for this noise barrier wall in printing industry. Large glazed areas also contributed to the enhancement of the rotary press.
Such a project is illustrating the know-how of ITS and its commercial partners in the field of protection againt noise at work, for which many applications are also possible in other sectors of industry: spread the word !
