Excess noise from pumps combated with Noise Control Barrier

From sound box to quiet area

Excess noise from pumps combated with Noise Control Barrier

from Hurks Bouw (NL)

“We had a project close to several blocks of flats. It was the pumps in particular that were a nuisance; the neighbours started to complain. First we tried to solve the problem by placing containers over the pumps. That didn't help. On the contrary: The containers acted like a type of echo chamber, so the problem only became worse. On the advice of our Equipment Department, we ‘wrapped’ the pumps in Noise Control Barriers. After that, it was pretty quiet. And the complaints from the neighbours stopped. So we are very satisfied!”
