Acoustic solutions for the food industry

Lowering sound levels without lowering hygienic standards

Good acoustics in the food industry will:

  • increase safety
  • support greater staff well-being
  • increase productivity
  • improve communication

The production environment in the food industry typically consists of hard surfaces and open spaces to permit good food hygiene practice. Production lines for preparation, filling, packing, freezing and preservation of food generate high noise levels, which is then reflected and spread by the hard surface materials. At the same time, any sound-absorbing system installed must not have a negative impact on hygiene. 

Challenge

  • High noise levels from e.g. production machinery.
  • Open spaces permitting free sound propagation.
  • High hygiene demands.

Solution

  • Use a sound absorbing ceiling to reduce noise levels.
  • Utilize Baffles for areas where a wall-to-wall ceiling is not applicable.
  • Add wall absorbers to reduce sound propagation and increase speech clarity for personnel.
